Six Great Ideas for Concrete Desks
A desk has many important functions. It can be a writing surface, a place to organize file folders and papers, a computer station, a conference table and, in retail or hospitality environments, a reception counter for customers. Along with being functional, a desk should also inspire creativity, since it's often the spot where we do a lot of brainstorming. No material meets these functional and aesthetic requirements like concrete. It's durable, can be customized to accommodate storage and computer equipment, and best of all, beautifully handcrafted to stimulate creative thinking. See these ideas for customizing concrete desks to suit a wide range of purposes.
Add built-in drawersThis concrete desk was designed with document storage in mind, featuring built in drawers for file folders. Stainless steel hardware beautifully complements the charcoal-gray finish.
Make a statementConcrete can be molded into conference tables or desks of any shape or size. It also can be customized with corporate logos or mottos that make lasting statements with both clients and employees. See more ideas for unique concrete conference tables, desks and reception counters.

Size it to fitThis concrete desktop was perfectly sized to nestle into a niche at the base of the stairway into the homeowner's rec room. This custom precast piece is one of many concrete elements the clients have in their home, along with a fireplace surround, circular entertainment tables, and a bartop.

Make it computer-friendlyThis custom concrete computer desk features a handy slide-out shelf for the keyboard and an open back for easy access to wiring. A wide curvilinear support leg hides plugs and cords while adding a touch of sophistication.
Blend different materialsThis 10-foot-long desk, created for Klorman Concrete Construction in Southern California, is the focal point of the company's conference room. The glass top permits an unobstructed view of the sculptural concrete base, which features table legs that slide into round posts for support. Chrome bolts and stainless steel accents were also used in the mix of materials. Read more about this one-of-a kind conference table pictured to the right.
