A wooden work desk placed around the corner of rooms is called a wooden corner desk. The position of the desk and the placement of it is across the edge of the walls, they are mostly available in the classic ‘L’ and ‘C’ shape. The former is the most preferred shape.
The reason why this is the most popular piece of furniture across all homes and more so in smaller homes is that it is extremely space saving and uses the corners of the room very efficiently which otherwise may have got wasted. This is especially important in places where space is at premium and in a world where living space in cities is shrinking in space and more and more houses are built smaller in size than those that were available even a few years ago.
There is one more advantage of having this useful piece of furniture in the house and that is the corner desk because of its placement affords a lot of privacy to somebody who wants to work on it and also cuts away a lot of distraction and increases efficiency at work.
