Originally catering to artists and designers, Studio RTA started making office desks when the personal computer became a practical option in the late 1980s. Since then, they’ve continued to stay ahead of the curve with style and innovation and computer desks is probably what they do best. Artistic and affordable, their functional, trendsetting designs make their line of office desks one of my top picks. What you’ll really love, though, is how well they make good on their “no worry” promise, all at such great prices…….
Designer Office Desks
Studio RTA claims that their guiding principle is “Inspiring Creativity Through Design, Innovation, Quality and Value”. They definitely get top marks for design in my book. Their desks are imaginative and creative. Using glass, metal, laminate and wood, they consistently manage a contemporary look that gives practical features an innovate twist – like the “floating” CPU shelf and optional extra keyboard tray for L-shaped units.
Although Studio RTA desks are chosen by companies of all sizes, they really focus on designing for small home office use. Many models have space saving features – like a corner fitting design, built-in storage, or mobility (wheels) – that manage to be incredibly stylish while also making their desks work well for anyone with tight quarters. I especially like their mobile carts. They are some of the most sturdy and durable mobile workstation solutions available, factually supporting Studio RTA’s claim of “quality” without going overboard on price, here the discount is already built in!
Many “ready-to-assemble” office desks suffer if they have to be disassembled or moved after you get them set up. This can be a hassle for the home office user, who may take a desk through several moves. The Studio RTA models can be taken apart and put back together pretty easily, and without damage, due to the strength and rigidity of their metal to metal joints.
Studio RTA uses clearly written assembly instructions, excellent customer service and an unmatched 10-year, yes I said 10 year warranty to support their goal of having a “no worry” relationship with the end user. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the never-enjoyable task of assembly, as each Studio RTA desk is actually quite easy to put together. The easy-to-follow instructions are also available online if you happen to misplace the set included with your desk, and they provide a toll-free assembly help line with courteous people who are good at walking you through each step.
They claim special packaging to minimize shipping damage as a point of pride, and from what I’ve seen they’ve done a good job with it. Nothing is ever fool proof, though, and the next best thing to having everything arrive in perfect condition is their same-day parts shipping guarantee. They cover the shipping cost of replacing any damaged part and manage to get it delivered courteously and quickly.
Bottom line? Whether your first priority is style, ease of use, or just a practical solution for your home office, you’re likely to find what you need in the Studio RTA line of office desks. Take a look at a few of my favorite models and choose the one that’s right for you.
