The art studio desk, long a mainstay of the artist's loft and the studio apartment has been steadily gaining ground as a fashionable, highly-functional home furnishing for the trendy, the artistic, and the general up-and-comer. Of course, art tables are still primarily the trademark workspace of the professional artist, but as a slumping economy forces more and more people to look for inexpensive ways to entertain and expand their horizons at home, a new Renaissance of amateur artists is spreading across the nation and art desks are popping up in the most unlikely of places. Nor is the art studio desk strictly for the traditional artist; art tables make great working surfaces for the arts-and-crafts and hobbyists, too.
One of the best things about art desks is that they are so extremely versatile. By their sheer simplicity of design, they are easily worked into almost any design scheme, adding a sense of simple elegance and the hint of the creative power. You simply cannot go wrong with art tables. Nor could you ask for a more functional piece of furniture. Whether you use it for a writing desk, a sewing table, a drafting table, hobby table or even in its intended purpose as an art table, the functional roles of the art studio desk are almost endless.
The amazing thing about an art desk is the way it seems to draw out the owner's artistic nature, no matter how deeply tucked away it may be. Even the least artistically inclined, when in the presence of a simple drafting table, may find him or herself suddenly compelled to pick up charcoal and paper to try his or her hand and sketching or to play around with some lovely pastels. It is no real surprise that some very brilliant art has been birthed under just such circumstances: an unwitting novice acting under the alluring, siren call of the art studio desk.
Art tables are available in a wide array of styles, to suit all tastes.
