While many shapes and forms made their way into desk-making business over the last two decades of rapid computerization, traditional I-shaped computer desk with hutch for holding accessories like keyboard and mouse are still most popular solution in this market. It is usually able to fit into interior of most flats, and can provide decent utility even in large rural houses or bungalows. With monitors getting lighter and thinner every year, it is no longer necessary to withhold big pressure of outdated CRT monitors, so desk manufacturers don’t waste as much wood on them as they used to.
Still, CRT monitors were mostly white, while LCD ones are usually black. That doesn’t bode well for white I-shaped computer desk, most common color of this furniture product. Unless client likes color contrast of course, but even then, there are better color companions to blackness of modern computers. Grey and brown, for example, mostly go to offices of serious companies who wish to be seen as responsible and reliable. Gamers and hardware enthusiasts often want additional lighting and physical slots, and in some rare cases we can find two-dimensional I-shaped desks where shelves constitute one body with desk and hang above user.
Small I-shaped computer desks are more common than L-shaped ones, since customers who prefer the latter often wish to turn their desk into genuine working places or gaming studios with great number of peripherals ready at hand. I-shape offers less in this regard, so there is no need to make them extra-large.
