far away if the monitor is at a comfortable distance.

The keyboard could be closer to the lap.
The monitor is 24" from my eyeballs.

That makes just about as much sense
as asking for a "Louis XIV miter saw station". Conjures up flashbacks
of David Marks' cherry-with-book-matched-koa-doors shop cabinet, but
at least the design of that was (mostly) functional.

But - if you had Louis XIV furniture in a room, where you also wanted a
computer, would you want to put it on something from Office Max? The
miter box is a bad parallel,
maybe I'm better off not knowing who David Marks is, and I'd never make
a bookmatched door shop cabinet. Obviously, with furniture in living
quarters you care about style. Or do you feel that the furniture style
is dictated by the computer no matter where it is placed? A miter box
would look OK temporarily in a Louis XIV room if you were repairing
something but the computer is there quasi-permanently. If the miter
box was there over a period of time I think you'd want to make it as
unobtrusive as possible.
With a Louis XIV miter box stand, of course.
