the workstead desk

by Grace Bonney

It’s been a while since I did our last desk and desk chair roundup, so I’ve had both on my mind lately. I’ve been filing away options here and there until I’ve built up enough and this beauty that popped into my inbox this weekend is definitely on the list. We’ve all been fans of Brooklyn-based design studio since we first got a peek inside their home, and I’ve been following all of their furniture launches ever since. Their newest desk is gorgeous, minimalist design made with American walnut. While I love the clean lines and warmth of the wood, I love the fact that there’s a built-in wooden filing cabinet even more. Filing cabinets are the bain of my existence most days because they seem to only come in pretty hideous color and style and options. But the idea of having a beautiful wooden one built right into the desk (that holds both letter and legal-sized folders) makes me incredibly happy. While handmade furniture like this will cost more than your typical Ikea desk, if you spend a lot of time in your office and would really like to invest in something that will last you a long time and be easy on the eyes, the Workstead desk is a fantastic option. I’m going to be compiling an update desk guide soon so stay tuned for that in the next month, but until then you can check out the Workstead desk online. xo, grace
