I’m attempting to hunt down the perfect desk for one of my guy friends, and I’ve had to pass on a number of great options because they weren’t quite right for him, but might just be right for you.

Desk #1:
mcm desk
Asking: $50
Condition: “The desk in is great shape for its age except for a gash in one of the drawer fronts.”
Dimensions: 47″ wide, 27″ deep, 29″ high
Location: Falls Church, VA
Thoughts: Bummer about the imperfection on the door, but I still think this is worth $50 easily.

Check it out. No longer available.

Desk #2:
writing desk
Asking: $75 
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: It says 2.6″ tall, 3.11″ wide, which I’m guessing means 30″ tall and 47″ wide?
Location: Kensington, MD
Thoughts: Not a great picture, but I think this writing desk has potential.

Check it out. No longer available.

Desk #3:
white Pottery Barn desk and chair
Asking: $490 (includes the chair as well)
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: Not provided (but according to the PB site, the desktop is 70” wide x 23” deep and the side components are 21” wide x 17” deep x 28.5” high)
Location: Fairfax, VA
Thoughts: Newish Pottery Barn stuff is always popular on CL.

Check it out. No longer available.

Desk #4:
curved wallnut desk
Asking: $500 (But they add “Do not be shy, make an offer: we want to give it to a new owner who will take care of it!”)
Condition: Excellent
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Adams Morgan, DC
Thoughts: This wouldn’t even be a little bit practical for my friend, but oh my goodness it’s a lovely piece of furniture.

Check it out. No longer available.

Which desk would you choose?
