Bespoke Writing Desk
A bespoke writing desk in fumed English Oak and Sycamore, with curved back and shelf and single full width drawer and removable legs.
This desk was a commission for a client who knew they wanted a desk but were unsure of how they wanted it to be. Over a long period of time working at the client's pace, allowing them time to think at each stage, we drew up sketches along with various thoughts, ideas and suggestions, each of these sparking ideas and possibilities with the client. Eventually we finalised this simple and elegant writer's desk, with every part of the design and detailing thought through with the needs and desires of the client.
A charming timeless desk design with a nod to the traditional and classical, this desk is made from beautiful prime grade quarter sawn English Oak and fumed to give a rich dark brown with golden hues. A laminated curved surround nestles a simple shelf for extra surface and organisation and gives a slight sense of seclusion to aid concentration and focus. A discreet slot just under the shelf allows access for charger cables. A slim single draw with bright, contrasting creamy white English Sycamore and tactile carved oak pulls, runs full width and is deep enough to take up to A2 size pads of paper. The turned legs thread into the base and can be easily removed so that the whole desk can be transported easily. The structure and material dimensions have been care fully thought out to keep the desk as lightweight as possible whilst maintaining rigidity and strength, making it easy to occasionally transport and take with you to a writing retreat.
Listed here are the main species of timber that we use along with naturally derived treatments and finishes we use with them. The grain colour and tone can vary considerably even within the same species so these images are just for a guide, but we have tried to select a good representation of what is available.
