Dir Orsacchiotto Black Salon Reception Desk
Dir Orsacchiotto (“little bear” in Italian) is the smallest black salon reception desk on this list.
The measurements are only: 25″(W) x 42″(H) x 15.5″(D).
So Dir Orsacchiotto is absolutely ideal for a tight space.
At the same time, it has everything you need.
In fact, with two large cabinets, it has more storage space than many large desks I’ve reviewed here.
In addition to that, it has a keyboard slide-out tray and an extensive working area the back.
You won’t get any drawers, locking drawers, or shelves with Dir Orsacchiotto. It doesn’t have any leg room either.
But that’s the price you pay for a super-compact unit.
This modern black glossy salon reception desk looks very cute.
Its entire front surface is occupied by a large square tempered frosted glass panel. It’s illuminated with white LED lights.

The dimensions are: 39.4″(D) x 57″(W) x 42.1″(H). The length is actually measured along the curve. So the width of the desk is smaller than 57″.
Dir Janus is a sleek modern-style desk. It has a nice black glossy finish and two strings of LED lights running along the curved front both at the top and at the bottom.
The curved desk has a very long counter with a lot of space, where the clients can check out and make payments.

Pibbs 5031 Curved Reception Desk
Pibbs 5031 is another curved black salon reception desk on this list.
It’s a high quality, durable unit that is made in America.
The manufacturer promises that it will last for many years.
It looks very elegant with stainless steel legs, black laminate, and a geometric silver accent in the middle.
The measurements are 42″(H) X 23″(D) X 60″(W).
There is a long curved counter at the top for customer check-out.
However, unlike the Dir Janus desk, this unit doesn’t have a large counter on the back.
The working space for the receptionist is shaped like a pretty small semi-circle.
Under that semi circle, there are only two drawers and no other storage space. But Pibbs 5031 has a lot of room for the legs.
So, even though you can’t store too many things inside this desk, you’ll be able to sit there with comfort.
Another plus is that both drawers have a lock. All the units I’ve reviewed here only have either one lockable drawer or none at all.
Pibbs desk ships fully assembled, so you can install it right after it arrives.
LCL Beauty Black Salon Reception Desk
Even though it’s a very simple and budget-friendly unit, LCL black salon reception desk is a pretty large one.

This black salon reception desk looks sleek and elegant with a brushed steel front accent and black laminate finish.
The unit is made of MFD.
The laminate is very easy to clean.

Puresana Salon Reception Desk
Puresana is the simplest black salon reception desk on our list.
To be honest, it’s not precisely black. But it has a very dark brown color, almost black.
Since it’s a budget-friendly unit, it’s pretty simple and quite compact. So it’s great for a small area.
The dimensions are: 42″(H) x 48″(W) x 24″(D).
It doesn’t look like a luxury unit. It’s a plain square-shaped traditional-style desk.
So you won’t get any embellishments, like LED panels or strings of light. The finish is not glossy. There’s no marble counter or anything like that.
But it has everything a beauty salon receptionist needs.
There is a narrow counter for the customers to make payments at, and a wide working surface for the receptionist on the back.
Puresana desk even has a lot of storage space, including, a lockable drawer and a large storage cabinet, and a shelf with adjustable height.
You can stretch your legs under the shelf if you don’t attach it too low, which is a plus.
The desk doesn’t come pre-assembled, but you can select the assembly service option at the checkout for an extra fee.

How to choose a black salon reception desk
Your reception desk is extremely important for the overall look of your salon.
So it must match other furniture and decor.
This list has all kinds of units, from modern to Revival, to traditional budget desks.
Of course, if you have a high-end salon choose a sleek modern or a Revival piece. They would be a perfect fit for a luxury reception area.
If you don’t have too much space choose a compact or a curved desk.
You can install a curved unit in a corner and save a lot of space.
Ornate details, silver accents, LED lighting, and a frosted glass panel can really enhance the look of a desk.
These details make a great impression and are ideal for a high-end salon.
Storage and function
If you need a lot of storage then choose a unit that has several drawers, cabinets or shelves.
And if you are accepting cash then get a desk with a lockable drawer. It’s also useful for keeping personal belongings safe.
Your salon’s receptionist may also need a working space in the back and a keyboard slide-out tray, which most desk models already have.
Don’t underestimate the importance of a counter for your clients. It should be tall and wide enough for them to be able to comfortably check out and make payments.
Most desks come already assembled out of the box.
However, budget models may need assembly.
If you feel you can’t do it yourself then Amazon usually offers their expert assembly service for an additional fee.
A black salon reception desk always looks classy and elegant and can make a great entry point for your salon. I hope this list is useful for you and you can make your perfect choice.
