Contemporary writing desk has a tendency to be somewhat traditional. Since they are most commonly manufactured in the first half of the 1900s. However, you can make a table with legs – especially those built during the Art Deco period. An aspect a little less traditional through several fairly simple techniques. If the table has a great value, consider replacing it instead of altering it, or using a non-destructive method of making it look more modern.
Reposition your legs on the desk with the most contemporary legs made of chrome steel or polished or brushed. In most cases, legged desks have legs that are screwed into the bottom corners of the desks. And that can be easily replaced with a different style of leg. Paint the countertop in a more contemporary color. Vibrant, bright colors like white, red and yellow can all add life to an old desk and make it look more contemporary. Match colors with other elements you have in your room.

Place contemporary decorative accessories on the top of the table, such as a steel vase, candle holders or other decorative objects. Stainless and brushed steel can work with a wide variety of different materials such as wood. And can add a contemporary touch to traditional pieces or more eclectic furniture and rooms. Place a contemporary decorative silk or fabric runner on the desk when not in use. The corridor should not be used as a blanket to cover the contents of the desk, but carefully mounts on the back.
