Desks/Workstations that look great for Macs

I was wondering if anybody knows of any good desks that suit a Mac setup!

I really am struggling and wondered what you guys are using

Cheers

all the good ones are mega expensive.. I had one made by a joiner.. you can choose the wood and have it bespoke to your room.

Get the wood from your local timber yard though as B&Q are silly money.

Have you checked out the 'Post Your Mac Setup' threads?

That's usually a good place to get inspiration.

Thanks for the help i'll check out both.

I was actually thinking of getting a joiner (one in the family) to build one for me to spec and exact measurement

Plus then at least i haven't got to mess about!

That desk at Overstock does come in white

In response to MatLane:

"Thats stunning, if they did it in white i would be having that one"

If you look down on the web page, the desk does come in white, as well as an "Espresso" color.

You can see the other colors under the image gallery on the page, and can select the different colors, under the "select options" tab on the right side of the page.

It is a nice looking desk, especially for some area where space is at a premium.
