A handmade desk is something you appreciate beyond its function. Skilled craftsmanship and quality materials can be spotted by connoisseurs a mile away. When you work hard, you want beautiful things to tell the story of your hard work. A unique handmade desk tells even more stories, like the one behind its fabrication.
The Crawford Desk is one of those handmade desks designed to beautify a space. Created by self-taught design duo behind Hellman-Chang, 32 year-old designers Eric Chang and Daniel Hellman, the handmade desk speaks about the way it was imagined to act more than a piece of furniture and become a conversation-starter. It tells its own story.
Imagine you have this contemporary office setting that needs an eye-candy focal point. This is where the uniqueness of a handmade desk comes in. The Crawford Desk steals the show with a combination of sophisticated desk design and handmade tenacity: “The sleek angles of the Crawford Desk meet with Hellman-Chang’s coved surfaces. The top and side panels float off each other for lighter presence while creating intersecting lines with their negative space. The Crawford Desk features low-profile beveled drawer faces, and can be paired with optional pull-out keyboard tray, top grommets, and a privacy panel as add-ons.”
And if you feel like an executive desk is more your cup of tea, then the Xie Executive Desk is a sleek alternative for the office you have in mind. Scroll down to see the executive desk design and let us know which one you like best, we’d love to know.
“The Xie Executive Desk creates a dramatic yet elegant statement for the office. Arching coved surfaces carry Hellman-Chang’s theme on the front drawers and on the back to allow for placement in the middle of the room. A floating oriental top provides lightened balance to the ample side storage units and pencil drawers. Additional options include inset leather top, pull-out computer tower storage, keyboard tray, grommets, and privacy panel.”(Information and photos received by email)
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels. Like some of the others on this list, this armoire from Enchanted Home does away with the glass and replaces it with netting instead.
