Since you already use the dining room table as a workspace, why not skip the desk entirely and add closed cabinets to store your office stuff? If you have enough storage with a place for everything, you can put your office stuff away when you're having a dinner party and leave it out the rest of the time. Ideally, you want the room to look like just a dining room when you have guests and just an office when you're working there, and I think that's hard to accomplish when you've got both a desk and a dining room table in the room.
