What is it about executive luxury desks that makes them so special and desirable? Are they really better than other types of desks? Can I afford one? These, and other questions are important to ask yourself when you are considering the purchase of a nice desk. Whether for home or office, if you spend much time at a desk then you likely recognize how important it is to find one that will be just right for you.
The dictionary defines executive as: 1 a: of or relating to the execution of the laws and the conduct of public and national affairs. b: belonging to the branch of government that is charged with such powers as diplomatic representation, superintendence of the execution of the laws, and appointment of officials and that usually has some power over legislation (as through veto). 2 a : designed for or relating to execution or carrying into effect b: having administrative or managerial responsibility.
At first it may not seem like executive luxury desks have much to do with such a definition. Granted, some parts may be a stretch to apply, but other parts are certainly apropos. For instance, a person with managerial or administrative responsibilities certainly needs a place from which to put into effect the goals, plans, and decisions that pertain to that persons business. A desk of the right type, quality and heft is certainly such a place. It’s obviously not the desk that makes it all happen; the person is the actual magic. But, there is something important about the office furniture that surrounds an executive. An executive luxury desk is an important part of that surrounding.
Luxury is defined in the dictionary as: a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity. This definition pertains to executive luxury desks in that such a desk goes beyond what is necessary. A piece of plywood spanned across some cinder blocks will function after all. A high-end, quality desk offers a refinement to the office environment that for some executives becomes almost a necessity.
Administering important business in a quality environment, with luxurious appointments may not be an absolute necessity, in terms of what one must have in order for that business to function, but it sure goes a long way to making a statement about the person and the business they represent. This can go a long ways in gaining the confidence of clients.
Executive luxury desks are generally constructed out of topnotch materials like oak, cherry, walnut, or some other exotic hardwood. They are constructed with real skill and precision. Quality woodworking techniques, joinery, and finishes are standard. Whether you “need” or “want” such a desk is up to you. I’ve never met a person who owned and used such a desk that regretted it for one second. For some, it may be a splurge, and for others it may be a necessity. Again, that’s a personal call. What can be said for sure is that an executive luxury desk is something anyone would love to have, and most can acquire with a little effort. From the plywood wonders, to the particle board wannabes, to the utilitarian and institutional metal desks, to the best executive luxury desks, a desk is basically just a surface with a bit of storage. But, oh what a difference!
