Embrace Practical Beauty with Danish Modern Desks

Looking for a classic executive desk with Danish design cred? Browse our collection for a Danish Mid-Century Modern desk with a floating top. A term generally used to describe desks with work surfaces that extend far past its body, or desks with a work surface elevated on short posts, floating desks were a favored style of many Danish designers in the 19506 and 60s. Look for models by esteemed makers such as Arne Vodder, Kai Kristiansen, Florence Knoll, and more. Rolltop or cylinder desks are another iconic Danish antique desk design. A far cry from the weighty, old-fashioned roll tops that populated American design in the first half of the 20th century, Danish rolltops and cylinder desks are sleek and pared down enough that they could almost be mistaken for dressers. Some even possess wheels, upping their function quota even more. For those with small spaces, there are plenty of Danish modern desks to fit the bill, too. Floating wall desks, essentially beautiful folding dropleafs meant to be affixed to the wall, are another staple of Danish Modern design. American designers like Jens Risom and George Nelson reinterpreted the form as well, adding details like drop-down leg support and a bank of drawers on one side.
