In addition to standard desk shapes, there are a plethora of style options available for executive desks. Chrome finished drawer handles and keyholes are status quo in most models, so expect to find those consistently when searching through styles.
Wooden finishes work well in a variety of environments, but if you have an office with a dark theme and large windows consider a dark driftwood veneer for your desk, matched with chrome drawer handles and legs. The contrast of chrome against driftwood finishes makes a rather bold statement.
Swirl-cut mahogany veneers match well against hardwood flooring and wall paneling, so desks brandishing these veneers tend to be exquisite additions to older office buildings like established law firms. They also do well in elaborate home offices designed with reading and lengthy work hours in mind, especially when matched against darker themed furniture.
If your office is designed with a lighter or beige themed décor, then a sandstone desk with a touch of black could be a delicious style choice for you. Sandstone blends well with light colors, like peach, pine or fresh aqua and black accents provide a startling contrast that makes your desk a centerpiece and not a mere piece of furniture.
