I was having a conversation recently with my mother about reigning in the chaos in her office. She has a lovely early American desk, and she mentioned that she hadn’t tackled the project yet because she wasn’t keen on putting acrylic shelves or other items in her beautifully decorated room. 

I decided to help my mom find the best wood desktop organizer with drawers that she would be proud to have in her home, and during my search I found some other really great systems that would appeal to all different tastes and styles. 

I was only looking at wood style products here, there are plenty of other styles available but for this post I’m only focusing on the one. I was more concerned with quality than price, but I was pleased to find that I was able to find good quality and a reasonable price together in quite a few instances.

Take a look at my favorites below!

Vintage Rustic Wood Desktop Organizer with Compartments and Drawers


  • 6 compartments and 2 drawers
  • Dimensions are14.3” wide x 6” deep x 9.8” high.
  • Ideal For Post-It Notes, binder clips, paper clips, scissors, markers/highlighters/pens/pencils, tape, erasers, White Out, folders, notepads, etc.

This is the one my mother chose for her office filled with antiques. Although it’s not an antique, it has a nice vintage rustic look to it. She loved the multiple compartments of varying sizes, and the ability to put mail in the compartments. With so many compartments, the small drawers were all she needed for her basic desk supplies. 

In fact, she ended up loving this so much she got a second one for her kitchen!

It is available in the distressed wood finish, or there are two white washed finishes to choose from as well.

Wood and Metal Desktop Organizer with Drawers
  • Letter tray with 2 slide in metal drawers
  • Sliding drawer trays each hold a full ream of standard 8.5x11 paper
  • Dimensions are 14.25 inches wide by 8 inches high by 9.75 inches deep
  • Constructed of solid wood with a rustic finish and slide in wire metal drawers with label holders

My needs were a little different. Once I started looking, I realized I could really use something to organize my papers that were needing to be filed (it’s true, they do build up sometimes!).

I fell in love with this rustic but clean looking wood and metal desktop organizer, it looks great in my simple office, and removes the little bit of clutter that I did seem to have sitting around more often than not. 

I use the bottom drawer for 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper, and the top for papers waiting to be filed away. This looks great and does the trick!

Midnight Black Wood Tower Desktop Organizer with Drawers
  • Two small drawers and one large drawer
  • Open slot for paperwork
  • Smooth black matte finish
  • Large in/out letter tray on top
  • Brushed metal handles, faux leather top, and frosted glass windows
  • 12.3 x 10.8 x 10.75 inches

To be honest, this was a very close second for both my mother and me, strictly because of the incredible functionality of this unit!

This comes in a wide variety of wood tones, so if you like the functionality but don’t want midnight black, click through to Amazon below and you’ll see all of the different options that are available.

This is a really good looking piece as well with the brushed metal handles, the faux leather top, and the frosted glass windows on the drawers. 

If you have a little extra space, you can’t get better functionality than this!

Cherry Brown Wooden Desktop Organizer with Drawers and Compartments
  • Decorative vintage style desktop organizer
  • Slide-out drawers and other spaces to stash all of your essentials
  • Made of sturdy & solid wood base material with a classic cherry brown finish 
  • Has soft non-slip rubber gripper pads on the bottom
  • Dimensions are 12"w x 8"d x 5.5"h
  • Comes fully assembled, simply unbox and go

This is a very popular product on Amazon, and for good reason. As you can see in the picture, there is a place for everything in this organizer.

It’s nice looking in a more traditional cherry brown color, and although it’s not very large compared to other offerings, it still has plenty of nooks for all of your office needs. The price is very affordable for the amount of functionality you get.

It also features anti-slip rubber adhesive pads so it stays firmly in place on your desktop.

This is a really good choice for the price.

Bamboo Wood Monitor Stand and Organizer with Drawers
  • Designed with a threading hole at the back for cables
  • Can be utilized as a printer stand, monitor riser, or laptop stand
  • Has four drawers and a large compartment, providing generous storage space for pens, notepads, paper clips, and more
  • Ergonomic design ensures that your computer screen is positioned at an optimal viewing height
  • Crafted from high-quality bamboo
  • Simple installation instructions provided along with a video guide

Lastly, for those of you who don’t have room on your desktop for both your computer and your organizer separately, this will do the trick for you!

This is a great looking bamboo wood monitor stand, with nice sized drawers and some small compartment spaces built in. 

Your keyboard and mouse, or a laptop, can slide under, or that area can be used for paper and journal storage as well. For years I used more of a table than a desk for my work, and this would have been very helpful to get my computer up and out of the way.
