Need a desk that can handle whatever you throw at it? Try a vintage metal desk.

Regardless of what option you choose, a vintage metal desk will lend your home industrial intrigue, deftly blending form and function.

Make Way for Vintage Metal Desks

Designing a kid’s workspace that you want to imbue with a retro aesthetic? Try a vintage steel tanker desk. A classroom staple, metal tanker desks will bring a Mid-Century air to any room. As a bonus, they can be sourced in an array of pastel hues making it easy to tailor one to your design. Build a teen girls’ workspace around a pink metal tanker desk, or use a tan metal desk to complement an organic modern-meets-Mid-Century aesthetic. A gray vintage steel desk can also be used in a boy’s room with an automobile or aviation theme. Partner it with a retro seat like an Eames molded fiberglass chair or a Verner Panton S-chair in a bold, primary hue to make it feel kid-appropriate. Steelcase produced a number of steel tanker desks throughout the mid 20th century—a word on naming: you’ll also see them deemed “steel executive desks”—but there are plenty of lesser-known manufacturers who produced them as well. If you prefer a sleeker, more modern look for a metal desk, consider steel parsons-style desks. Steelcase was again a leader of this style throughout the 1980s and 90s, producing a number of basic metal desks featuring wood tops with corner-flush steel legs. A classic design that can be teamed with everything from Eames Aluminum Group Loungers to colorful Charles Pollock chairs, these minimalist vintage metal desks are as versatile as it gets.
