List of desk forms and types

Any list of desk forms and types encountered in the modern office or home, and in antique stores is incomplete and contradictory given the variations in the naming of desks . Each article discusses the name variations and the most general article of all, desk makes comparisons between several forms and places them in historical context.

The division between "desk form" and "desk type" presented here is arbitrary, since there is no consensus as how to differentiate function, form, type and style in these matters. A form here is something rather specific, while a type can be applied to any given form or all of them.
