Seek wisdom and grace in green design. Sleek and elegant, the untamed beauty of solid oak or mango wood combines with clean, modern lines to create our Palmer Desk Collection. Our designers fashioned this collection with elements of the Bauhaus era in mind, where minimalist form underlines everyday function. Indonesian artisans handcraft each piece, bringing artistry and unique character to hand-planed, hand-sanded wood. Let our Palmer Desk Collection be an endless source of inspiration, where knowledge thrives and modern flair abounds.
The Natural Oak Desk is handcrafted of solid oak wood that is grown and harvested in the United States in strict adherence to international environmental treaties. Timber is hand-planed and hand-sanded to bring out the natural beauty of every piece.
The Bali Brown Desk is made of solid mango wood. Mango is indigenous to Indonesia and has an eco-friendly story; timber is harvested only when trees reach maturity and can no longer grow commercially saleable fruit. The wood is hand-planed to achieve a textured surface and then finished with coat after coat of cherry stain to achieve a warm and rich patina.
Each plank is hand-planed and hand-sanded, then coated with several layers of glaze and light stains to reproduce a naturally weathered finish.
Artisans apply a matte lacquer topcoat to each piece for extra protection.
Parsons-style bases are made out of solid iron and powder-coated.
Two open shelves below the desktop offer storage areas.
Fully finished, the desk can be displayed with the open shelves on the left or right side.
These pieces are constructed with mortise and tenon assembly, which is one of the best ways to secure two pieces of wood that connects at a “t.” The end of one piece is fashioned into a round or rectangular shape (tenon), which is designed to fit into the same size hole on the other end (mortise).
Due to the nature of the multi-layered finish that is hand-applied by our craftspeople, each piece will have slightly different shading and grain patterns and will vary from piece to piece. Some small splits may occur, but will only add to the character.
Knots and joint lines are a natural property and add interest but without affecting performance.
All natural wood will display movement from season to season because of changes in temperature and humidity.
