A good desk is hard to find. I’m always in search of the perfect one for my projects. My wish list includes:
• something that is modern and airy
• has one drawer (since there is so little actual paper to store these days)
• looks great from every angle, so it can be floated in a room
• works well standing behind a sofa or anchored against a wall
I designed the Yorke desk for Ferrell + Mittman to fulfill all these wishes. From this design, they beautifully crafted a timeless piece.
As pictured below, the top is rosewood and the base is walnut, hand-made and hand-finished in North Carolina. With the Yorke’s design, there are almost infinite options of wood species, sizes, and finishes available. I can imagine this piece in anything from light cerused oak to walnut burl, anything you can envision. I am also looking forward to seeing it “grow up to be a dining table” soon. The Yorke desk is exactly what I’ve been seeking.
Elle Decor‘s September Issue and Dering Hall agree.
The Yorke Desk is also currently featured in Dering Hall’s, 11 Well-Organized Home Offices.
