For generations, Vermont made furniture has been a symbol of high-quality craftsmanship and long-lasting value. Our craftsmen aren't just gluing together a few pieces of wood. They're building something that will probably last longer than themselves- something they can be proud of. We call that a legacy. Every time you sit down at your desk, you're building YOUR legacy. Let your desk be a part of that legacy. Let it inspire you every time you sit down to bring your visions to fruition.
Our solid wood desks are handcrafted in Vermont using real, North-American hardwoods. We source all our timber from sustainably managed forests right here in the USA. Much of our maple and oak woods come from Vermont's own green mountain forests. Our cherry and walnut woods are sustainably harvested from forests in the midwest and mid-Atlantic regions, where both species grow in abundance.
The thumbnails below represent (from left to right) natural cherry, walnut, maple, and oak woods with a clear, natural finish. If you are looking for a darker or lighter color, just use our drop down menus to apply a wood stain. You'll find many choices of stains from light ivory whitewashes to medium ambers to dark ebony and espresso stains. Each product page provides the wood and finish options available for that desk model. Click on the "Order Samples" tab to have wood samples sent to your home.
What's the difference between an executive desk and a writing desk?
We use the term "executive desk" to refer to an enclosed desk with deep drawer storage on both sides. The deep drawer storage gives you a place to file all your important documents. Executive desks are designed to maximize storage and workspace, allowing for better organization and increased productivity.
Writing desks are sleeker and simpler. They usually lack the concealing apron that you see on executive desks. Writing desks look almost like dining tables, and could be used as inspiration for such. They're great for the bedroom or living room as well. These desks are meant to bring out your inner creative. Whether you're trying to produce or relax, you don't need to be distracted by all the other noise in your life. Our modern, minimalist designs are engineered to help keep you in the zone.
You'll notice several of our best-selling desks are shaker style desks. Shaker furniture is easily recognized by the tapered profile of the legs and the sleek, simple designs. We also have more modern designs like the Copeland Kidney-Shaped Desk and the Catalina Desk.
Many of our customers call us because our designs inspired one of their own. They want different drawer pulls. They want a different arrangement of drawers for storage. Or maybe they just need the to tweak the dimensions a few inches.
We want you to get the office desk of your dreams. We'll work with you to make sure that you get exactly what you want.
