In this post: If you’re looking for a pretty French desk at a reasonable price, this shopping guide offers many affordable options with great style and French attitude.
Do you have an office space that you absolutely love to work in?
When I began working at home several years ago, I set up an office in a light filled room surrounded on three sides by wall to wall windows. But the icing on the cake was a pretty writing desk I bought at an antique shop in our neighborhood. I truly enjoyed working at that desk and was inspired to decorate it with pretty French accessories.
Then we moved to our new house, and the desk fit perfectly in my daughter’s room. I knew I’d have to find a new one for myself.
My new office was much darker and the desk would be free standing in the center of the space, so instead of being concerned with only the front of the desk, I now needed to find something that looked great from all sides.
You can see the one I picked in my French country study, and I must say, it’s one of the most asked about items in my home.
That beautiful French desk is among the selections below, along with many other options, including one that looks like the antique desk my daughter now uses.
As shopping online has changed quite a bit in the past few years, there are some things I’d like to point out.
For one, I do my best to update this post periodically, but many of the vendors run out of stock quickly so you may find some broken links. Please know I do come back to change those links as often as I can. If you’re looking for something in particular, I may be able to help if you send me an email pointing it out.
I’ve tried my hardest to link only items most people would consider “affordable”, which for desks I define as under $1000 (with many in the $300-$500 range).
However, with stock so severely limited in recent months I’ve included some higher priced items. I promise you this is not a bait and switch tactic but rather an attempt to offer a selection of options to those who don’t mind spending a little more.
At this writing there are still plenty of items on the list that are priced in the low hundreds, but I do find it increasingly difficult to find these items available in stock. More than half do currently fit my definition of affordable.
Please enjoy looking through the choices selected below and if you find one you like, all you need to add is some pretty feminine accessories and you’ll be good to go. What a great way to be inspired to get your work done!
To get the look, click on the items below for direct links to the products. Where actual items were no longer available, I’ve provided similar options. If an item is out of stock but may be restocked, I left it on the list.
