Most office furniture today falls in the RTA market, meaning ready to assemble, including all hardware and everything else you need. But, Legare makes FTA, Fun to Assemble, furniture. There is no hardware of any kind, a corner desk or any other piece of their furniture uses a patented locking design making assembly fun, fast and simple. You may worry about the pieces coming apart, but they won't, not until you take them apart, plus they are very strong. They are also reverse configured so that they can be assembled left or right handed, or what if you get a bad scratch on the surface? Just flip that piece over and assemble the other way.
Price can be a definite consideration and you will be able to find a wider selection of desks at higher price ranges. These more expensive pieces may often be made of solid wood rather than veneers, and have better hardware on drawers such as glides and handles. You can find perfectly good desks for less and they can offer the same features as more expensive desks, but they will have parts which may not be as durable or luxurious.
What's interesting is that the ultimate corner desk is found in offices all around the world today. As a matter of fact, offices purposely create corners for their desks. But they are not called corners, they are called cubicles or "cubbies". In these, the individual worker creates his own little home away from home to help him get through his work day. So maybe the corner is still a subtle form of punishment!
It seems like the classic punishment in school was getting sent to the corner. According to tradition, if you were sent to the corner you had to sit on a tall stool with a dunce cap on. Though I have to admit, even in the 1970's, I never saw one of these. If you were sent to the corner, there you had to stand. Many parents have used this punishment form also, standing with your nose in the corner. But lets face it, if you are sent to the corner today, it probably isn't empty. But has a corner desk in it with a nice computer, such as the latest iMac or PC. Yes, kids today love to sit in the corner.
