    Moshi moshi,

    As a part of my search for a new computer desk (or table) and computer chair I've come across a variety of kinds of desks, tables, and chairs.

    I'm curious what fellow members of TPU have.

    Could anybody post pictures (or links to pics) of what computer desk/table and/or computer chair they're using?

    Thanks!

    :D

    I had a chair kind of like that, it worked well.

    I'm considering (maybe) getting a desk like this:

    [​IMG]

    The space on the left for the computer and the space on the right for audio/music recording equipment. Though I'd like to be able to fit all of it within one (non-corner or non-V-shaped (etc.)) "straight" desk/table.

    Mine is custom-made so can't link to it. And yes, it isn't even close to looking as good as those above, so I won't bother with a picture.

    if you have an ikea near you, go check them out. cheap prices for nice desks.

    check out the jerker/fredrick (think jerker is discont) and the galant series. lots of addons for them.

    OMG! :eek: Straddle that computer! :p That'd certainly allow for long hours of uber-comfy gaming.

    I like that. My monitor's 2-feet wide... and I have approximately 5 to 5.5 feet space in width where I'll be placing the desk... I like the style in that though not sure if there'd be enough "breathing" room for much else open space on top of the desk (where the monitor goes).

    My drumset is in that corner in my music studio (where the computer's going). However, that would also be the ideal place for my computer, just as you have yours, and that computer desk you're using is the perfect desk that I'm looking for (it doesn't have to be wood). I do like the "minimalist" effect, uncluttered, plenty of open breathing room, it's ideal for recording gear too (like a mixer/soundboard and rackmount recording gear). To the left of your computer monitor, in your picture, is where I'm currently planning on putting my desk. To the left of the desk will be a closet door, so I don't think I could get away with rotating a V-shaped/corner desk in that spot. I prefer the v-shaped/corner desk, for recording gear, though might have to go with "one-side" type desk. I'll try to find my digital camera and take a picture of that part of the room so I can show what I'm talking about. It'd also be cool to get a desk that's "one-sided" but capable of expanding into a V-shaped/corner desk later on.

    Unfortunately their closest location is about 2 hours north of me, I'll have to stick to the local stores for the new chair and new desk.

    I can see that you have plenty of room for your set-up. I wasn't clear in what I'm looking for. Here's a more specific description of what I'll need on the desk:

    Center:
    24" monitor
    MIDI keyboard
    Computer keyboard

    Left:
    Belkin N52TE game pad
    Laptop (on laptop stand)
    Studio monitor speaker (left channel)
    Rack space (underneath, to fill with recording gear)

    Right:
    Mouse
    Mixer (16-channel)
    Studio monitor speaker (right channel)
    Rack space (underneath, to fill with recording gear)

    The computer (case/tower) can go underneath or off to the side. I wouldn't mind showcasing it. ;)

    I won't be filling in the rackmounting spaces just yet, that's easily another $10,000.

    I might not get the mixer right away (might just use an AD/DA with MADI right now), though would like to have the space available for these things as I upgrade later. It'll fit nicely within a 5.5' width.

    Here's a sample I found with a 24" monitor on a narrow desk:
    [​IMG]

    Here's another sample of 24" monitor on narrow desk:
    [​IMG]

    Here's a 24" monitor on a slightly wider desk:
    [​IMG]

    They fit perfect, though I'm looking for width (on left and right)... I'm wondering if I should just go absolutely basic.

    Now imagine putting this 16-channel mixer on one side of the desk:
    [​IMG]

    This is appropriate for my situation, especially with the rackmount space underneath (left and right sides), though I don't have as much width available:
    [​IMG]

    Here is one of the closer ones for what I'm looking for, though without reserved rack space:
    [​IMG]

    This might also be a closer one for what I'm needing, though maybe a little bit too narrow, it's lacking the rack space, though I like that laptop stand:

    the last one seems like it would fit your situation best

    Edit: in terms of space available at least

    Anybody know who might make this desk or where I can get one close to it?:
    [​IMG]

    My desk will also be in front of a window, actually... my 2 kitties will love having the desk there. :)

    ...Grace is doing her "look at me I'm seductive" pose. --->

    <--- Vai has realized that Grace is a vampire and there's nothing he can do about it...
    ...Grace sees Vai... and goes "nom nom nom". --->


    Okay, back to computer desks/tables/chairs... :p

    How do glass desks hold up?
    [​IMG]

    Here's a couple basic wide desks I found, though perhaps too basic?
    [​IMG]

    I'm curious if this would be good for my set-up:
    [​IMG]
    (Center = Monitor, MIDI keyboard, computer keyboard)
    (Left = Laptop on laptop stand, Belkin N52TE gamepad, studio monitor, recording rack gear underneath)
    (Right = Mixer, mouse, studio monitor, recording gear underneath)

    The mouse+gamepad would actually be on the right/left of the center piece.

    I don't know if the compartments on the underneath left/right fit rackmounts, though. hmmm.

    Actually I don't like that, lol... pieces are too... they're pieces. One solid wide desk would be nice. :)

    You could get a carpenter or joiner in to make a custom desk ? I certainly wanted that so it would taylor my needs.
