Old-fashioned desks had a dedicated place to put your quill and ink, and the Riverside Furniture Corinne Writing Desk gives you the same traditional sensibility, but with a subtle, modern twist. The body of this old-world charmer is made from solid hardwood with high-quality veneers of acacia beneath a sun-drenched acacia finish. The thick legs are turned on a lathe and supported by sturdy metal stretchers to add that blacksmith's touch. The drop-front drawer is when this piece starts to offer some up-to date touches, with a pull-out drawer that's perfect for holding a keyboard or storing a laptop. Inside that drawer is a power bar with USB ports, and a wiring access port at the rear lets you discretely connect to an outlet.
