Needing, Wanting, Loving: A Writing Desk

I've been inhabiting my new studio apartment for almost 5 months now, and still haven't done too much in the way of decorating.  I did finally decide on my shade and curtain materials and purchased a small bistro table and chairs.  The chairs I plan to recover in a small printed fabric, and I'm toying with the idea of making a skirt for my table.  I told myself I wasn't going to go so "feminine" this decorating go-round, but I can't help it-- old lady decorating vibes are my favorite.  The one element I'm still trying to figure out is a makeshift desk of sorts.  Since I'm limited on space, a fold-down secretary that could also provide storage sounds appealing:

Or, a desk that also functions as a bedside table could be nice: 

Or, just a small desk set aside to create a little nook would work fine for me:

One of my favorite living room vignettes below:  Black desk + lucite chair + brass Vaughan lamp, and a Marilyn Minter photograph for good measure- designed by the fab Lilly Bunn:

 I need a space to work on my laptop because lying in bed with it just makes me fall asleep! Tackling this desk situation is next on my decor to-do list.  Below are a few small desks I adore.
