Is the Roll Top Desk Coming Back?

I can’t say that I’ve walked into too many offices that still sport the antique look of the roll top desk.  While this style may have been popular decades ago, today’s businesses seem to concentrate more on sleek and sophisticated.  In other words, there’s something about the roll top desk that doesn’t exactly fit in the description of contemporary office furniture.

However, it seems that the roll top desk may be making a comeback.  Some offices have found that this style of desk helps keep clutter to a minimum.  And, with our wired workplace, the roll top desk gives workers the ability to keep wires behind the scenes when not in use.  Additionally, roll top desks can fit in to just about any room in the office.  By simply rolling down the top of the desk, the piece of furniture becomes a part of the tasteful decor rather than an open display of clutter.

What do you think?  Are roll top desks on the verge of a major comeback, or should we keep them in the office graveyard?
