Bow Front Desks that are Awesome Meeting Spaces in your Office

A great option for a small or growing business in lieu of a conference room is a bow front desk for the office. If you are meeting a small number of people, the bow front desk works as a de facto conference table. Designed specifically for the purpose of meeting guests in your own office, it allows you to function as a full-sized business in limited office space.

Several years ago, I worked for a small but successful land surveying company. The boss had a bow front desk in his office, and it functioned exactly this way. If we had to have a party chief meeting, it was done across his bow front desk. If we met with clients, it was done there. Also, on those rain days where we did office work all days, we had our lunches at that desk. There was a lot of teambuilding and friendships struck up around that bow front desk.

I actually called him to ask him to see if he would send me a picture of his bow front desk for this writing. He explained that about five years ago a large engineering firm needed an office local to our area, so instead of starting from scratch they did their research and found he was a successful member of the field, and they made him an office that he couldn’t refuse, and they bought out and absorbed his company into theirs. He said that the only downside to the deal for him was that they leased a larger office space and furnished it with a company contracted supplier. He now has a large U shaped executive desk. We spoke for about ten minutes on the memories we had around his old bow front desk.

So, with this in mind, I thought I would highlight some excellent bow front desks for the start of 2023. Whether you’re in a small startup or in a multimillion-dollar office, this list will have options for you. So, let’s start with a standard bow front desk with drawers and see how much these desks can grow.

Bow Front Desk with Drawers

Groupe Lacasse brings us a fresh bow front desk from their Concept 400E series of office furniture. A standard rectangular “pedestal” desk with two sets of drawers is a solid workstation for many office workers and measures 72”W x 42”D x 29”H. The bow front of the desk makes small meetings more intimate and involved. Constructed of laminate and steel that carries a manufacturer’s warranty of twenty-five years. The laminate finish is available in these options- Anthracite Grey, Authentik Elm, Borealis, Bourbon Cherry, Cherry, Classic Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Fossil, Frost, Hard Rock Maple, Hazelnut, Karoo, Mojave, Natural Cherry, Niagara, Roots, Sahara, Salta, Snow, Totem, Tuscany Walnut, and Willow Grey.

Next let’s look at a similar bow front desk with additional storage capacity.

From Cherryman’s Amber series of office furniture comes a bow front desk with additional storage in the form of a credenza with an overhead hutch. A solid option for anyone who likes the standard rectangular bow front desk but requires more storage near the desk. The main desk measures 71”W x 36”/41”D x 29”H, with the hutch measuring 71”W x 22.5”D x 29”H. This bow front desk has several customization options to allow you to make the perfect workstation, they include six options for drawers, seven keyboard tray options, and ten options for monitor arms. Construction materials include aluminum and melamine with finish options of Black Cherry, Park Walnut, Sienna Mahogany, and Valley Grey. Cherryman provides a ten-year warranty on their office furniture.

What if you need a little more desktop workspace? Let’s look at a bow front L shaped desk model.

When a little more desktop workspace is needed, you upgrade to an L shaped desk. Available in three different sizes with a choice for the return to be on either the left or right side. While most L shaped desks are reversible, this model is not due to the inside curve of the desktop. This bow front desk is available from our new partner Office Star Products from their Kenwood series of office furniture. Stacked with many options for customization including desk drawers, power outlets, keyboard trays, monitor arms, and under desk drawers. Constructed of veneer and wood that is available to be finished in these two finishes- Kenwood Mahogany and Light Cherry. Backed by a three-year manufacturer’s warranty.

But what if you need more desktop workspace from your bow front desk?

Customization includes options drawers, desk chairs, keyboard trays, power modules, and monitor arms.

What if you need a U shaped bow front desk with more storage capacity?

U Shaped Bow Front Desk with Hutch

Finally, what if you need even more storage than a hutch can provide for your U shaped bow front desk? I have a great answer…

U Shaped Bow Front Desk with Storage

Bow Front U Shaped Desk With Storage

Starting Price- $3,345.00

We now look to Harmony Collection and their PL Laminate series of office furniture for this massive bow front U shaped desk with ample storage. With three size options to choose from, this is a bow front desk that is really going to need extra square footage to properly sit in. Construction materials include aluminum, fabric, glass, and laminate which is backed by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. Storage includes a hutch for overhead storage and a two-drawer lateral file cabinet with a storage cabinet top with aluminum framed glass doors. The white frosted glass doors can make for an excellent contrast against the finish options which are Aspen, Cherry, Espresso, Mahogany, Modern Walnut, and Newport Gray. As far as customization goes, there is a wealth of options to choose from. You can switch out the drawers for another configuration. You can add a desk chair, keyboard tray, task light, and monitor arms. If you need a U shaped desk with a large amount of storage, why not go ahead and spring for a bow front desk?

Bow Front desks are so versatile, and can handle all your office needs while also functioning as an informal meeting area or perhaps your primary one. As we settle into 2023 a change in the office just may be what the doctor ordered, and perhaps a bow front desk can be the prescription to a lot of your current office issues. I know I had a great two years working for a small business with a boss who utilized one for all his business needs. I’ve seen the advantages and have enjoyed the benefits of an informal meeting space that a bow front desk provides. If you think that a new bow front desk can benefit you in the same way, then call us today to order at (888) 967-1492.
