Executive Desk


The African Touch Executive desk is built from solid African hardwood. A generous top (1800mm or 6 feet by 900mm or 3 feet) covers six deep, spacious drawers. A genuine leather insert gives a comfortable writing pad or work surface for a laptop computer. This solid hardwood executive desk is built with the finest joinery – through and sliding dovetail joints for the drawers and panel-in-frame construction for the sides and back. It comes in knock down form for ease of transport and installation. Please see ‘Description’ below for more information on this beautiful desk.

The Design:

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.

The drop handles are imported solid brass handles. The drawers slide on Danish stainless steel roller bearing slides, the best available.

Uses for the Executive Desk:

We have kept the price of this solid hardwood executive desk affordable so that offices can be fitted out with it to give companies a very prestigious working environment. It is also ideal for home offices or reception desks in hotels and lodges. For larger orders we offer good discounts. Bespoke office fittings to go with the Executive Desk can be accommodated.

Shipping and installation:

The Executive Desk is built as two drawer pedestals with a detachable desk top. This makes for easy packing and shipping. The desk is simple to assemble and instructions will be provided if required.

To protect your lacquered finish please place the desk away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month. Apply sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.

On the leather insert please use African Touch Leather Food (we carry stocks of Leather Food in our outlets should you require).

Please clean the leather with a damp cloth. Hide Food should always be applied using a lint free cloth, a natural or synthetic sponge using an even circular motion. Drying is temperature related but the cream generally dries in a couple of minutes after which it can be buffed with a polish brush or soft cloth. It will renovate and provide an elegant lustre.

We offer a 15 year warranty on your Executive Desk for any flaws in construction or material (except natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks etc.) Miss handling or inappropriate use of the product will invalidate the warranty.

We will supply you with our suggested care and maintenance guidelines to ensure life-long enjoyment of your furniture. However we cannot be held responsible for repairing / replacing this product if you don’t follow these guidelines.

We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.

The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
