Natural Hardwood Desks
We're passionate about forest conservation and 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 Forest. Our cherry and walnut woods are sustainably harvested from forests in the midwest and mid-Atlantic regions, where both species grow in abundance. For centuries, Vermont made furniture has been a symbol of high-quality craftsmanship and long-lasting value. Our craftspeople are building pieces that will serve your family long after the craftsman's gone. We call that a legacy.
We know how meaningful your handcrafted furniture will be as you sit down to build YOUR legacy. We'll make sure it arrives to your home office in perfect order. Your satisfaction means everything to us. Our sales and design consultants are sitting at their own beautifully crafted desks ready to help you get exactly what you're looking for, please call us.
Stains and Finishes
The swatches below represent 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 shows the wood and finish options available for that desk model. Click on the "Order Samples" tab to have wood samples sent to your home.
Styles and Designs
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 & Catalina Desk as well as secretary desks, campaign desks and library desks. Narrow your selection by shopping for Shaker Style Desks or Desks by Copeland Furniture.
