So for my study shall I buy:

1) a corner desk so that I can look across my room with my back to the window, but things will fall off the open side?
2) a curvy desk with one straight side that will look good, but things will fall off the curve, and it is not very big?
3) a short desk with a backboard so that I can sit with my back to the window and have two sides things won't fall off, but it's not very big?
4) a long, plain rectangular desk with one-and-a-half the desk area of 2 or 3 but which requires me to sit facing the wall?

All are nice plain wooden tables with sensible legs in good condition, and cheap enough for the price differences not to matter.

(I'd do this as a poll but this is a free account and I don't feel like upgrading right now.)

You don't want to look out the window?

I'd go for 4 but set it up with the short end against the wall e.g.

Wall
-------------------- 
    |    |         |
Y   |    |         W
o   |    |         i
u   |    |         n
    |    |         d
    |    |         o
    |____|         w
                   |


Otherwise you'll only find yourself craning around whenever you hear a noise out the window

4 is too big to set the short end against the wall, and in fact not having to decide whether to face the room or the window is a plus for this option.

I don't like looking out of the window anyway, so I'd probably go for the big desk.

I'd go for bigger is better. And I'd much rather face the window than the room. That's why my office is set up the way that it is.

Biggest possible desk, put nice picture on the wall. You can look out of the window intermittently (anyway, it's only onto the street, isn't it?).

How about the big desk and a mirror on the wall?

I'd say 4. You can always add some shelves to the wall then for even more storage at arms reach.
