A desk isn't just a piece of furniture. Whether you're jotting down notes, tackling emails, or diving into remote work, the right desk sets the stage for productivity. So, investing in the right desk is like investing in your own success — Pottery Barn desks practically pay for themselves, right?

When I stumbled upon the desks featured in the ongoing Pottery Barn sale, I fell down a rabbit hole of desk envy. It dawned on me that my workspace deserved an upgrade.

It's equally crucial to ‘take into account factors such as material, durability, storage options, and ergonomic features.' Luckily, Pottery Barn has nailed it on all fronts, seamlessly marrying form with function.

 What should I consider before buying a Pottery Barn desk? 

Before committing to a Pottery Barn desk purchase, Nina recommends considering a couple key factors.

First, measure your space — ‘Evaluate the size and layout of the room where the desk will be placed to ensure it fits comfortably and allows for adequate movement.’

Next, determine its purpose: Is it for work or studying? A center for your creative endeavors? ‘Choose a design and features that accommodate your specific needs,’ says the designer.
