Writing desks. There might be a temptation to believe that fancier is better, but in reality, the simpler more rustic touch can be more effective. Just take a look at our real hickory log writing desk option
, if you don’t believe us!
We will get to the design nuances shortly, but let’s focus on the refreshingly understated composition first. A smooth, level top sits above two useful drawers on this rustic desk
and that’s it folks! But what else do you really need? The drawers have been designed to elegantly house stationery and the top offers the perfect surface for either hand-writing or placing a laptop and getting down to some keen penmanship. Anything extra would have been unnecessary. We did, however, add in our unique flair with materials.
The difference real hickory makes
We know a lot of competitors get by very well with their veneer furniture pieces, but we have always been a solid wood furniture company. When it comes to making the ultimate writing desk for a rustic cabin, lodge or even a modern home though, we know how to go all-out. Who wants a veneered piece made to look rustic anyway?
Combining hickory wood and logs, we leave enough of the pieces unpeeled, to give you the authentic woodland look that you love, while also focusing on the smooth operation of the individual facets. The drawers, for example, all feature full extension glides, for seamless and silent use. To look at it, you’d be forgiven for assuming this desk is a heritage piece, with quirks of its own, but it works as a contemporary build should, without losing any genuine rustic charm. The balancing act was hard to get right nut we are the experts!
Choose your style
Let’s say that you love the look of this rustic writing desk
, but there are just a couple of small changes you’d make, if you could. Who says you can’t? We’ve built in a couple of choices for you:
Finish – Whether you love the natural hue of the hickory and simply want a clear lacquer or fancy something colored, such as our honey or vintage whiskey hues, we are happy to apply this for you, by hand, for the perfect finish. Protection can be beautiful too.
Solid Wood Desk top – We can either finish your top in our standard gorgeous way or, we can liquid glass-finish. This gives you a deep shine that begs you to reach out and touch it.
You can also choose to upgrade your drawers to dovetail construction and, if you’re feeling really fancy, you can add a matching rustic desk chair
too. This is actually a cost-effective idea, as it will let you enjoy free shipping on the chair itself and you can choose from a wealth of beautiful upholstery fabrics.
Built from solid hickory, using mortise and tenon construction, we know this log writing desk
is made to last, which is why we give you a 20-year warranty, with our compliments and our full confidence.
Who knows, in years to come, your grandkids might be writing their first novels on this very same rustic desk!
