Our Executive Desk design follows in the tradition of executive office desks going back over a century. The design was based on the Partners Desk, originally introduced in England in the 1800’s to accommodate banking partners so they could sit opposite each other and work. What is unique about our desk then?
Firstly, the simple, uncluttered lines of the design amplify the beautiful hardwoods from which they are handmade (see below). Secondly, dedication to honestly adhering to the finest construction methods used in solid hardwood furniture. The side and back walls are built using panel in frame construction. This allows for the panel to move within the frame as ambient humidity changes – essential when building with solid hardwood. The drawer box sides are joined with through dovetail joints, while the drawer front is attached to the box sides with sliding dovetail joints. The whole is a pleasing acknowledgement of the art of the master craftsman.
Cupboards can be added at the front of this executive office desk opposite the drawers. However, in today’s paperless offices these are not often required. If you would like them, please contact us for a quote.
Materials and Fittings:
Zambezi Teak, formerly known as Rhodesian teak, is our timber of choice for the Executive Desk. Though very hard to work because of its density, it is a stunning and attractive hardwood. A desk built of Zambezi teak will last for generations. Also available is African Mahogany and African Bloodwood (kiaat).
The drop handles are imported solid brass handles. The drawers slide on Danish stainless steel roller bearing slides, the best available.
