Desks for Your Home Office

Navy desks. Travelers and seafarers of yore had to be resourceful in order to survive. Desks on board ships had to be cleared and stowed at a moments notice. Things had to be multi-functional.

In the case of our desks, the two supports could act as steps into the navigators bunk, or to mount a camel, whichever came first. The desktop, complete with drawers and brass bound, could act to stop musket bullets when under fire. Leather top, hand rubbed French finish, somewhat beat-up; proof of its many voyages and colorful history.

office desks

Captains desks. Captains made good use of notoriously cramped quarters in the ships stern section (deckhands were housed before the mast). The captainís desk was tailor made to offer maximum comfort and space in a minimal floor area. Drawers to house the crews papers, sealed sailing instructions, logbooks, charts, instruments and a pair of flintlock pistols. Brass corners to protect from damage when being moved around. Sturdy construction to withstand often violent shipís movements. Well-traveled. Sturdily made of cherry and maple. Leather inset top.

Travel desks. You want something solid. Lived in and comfortable. Warm and rich looking. Soft and easy to the touch as if waxed and polished by generations of housemaids. Drawers to hold documents and treasures. Brass campaign corners to survive damage during challenging moves across the country or even oceans. After all, our furniture is made to travel well.

Architects were once skilled draftsmen and graceful calligraphers, able to draw a crisp and perfect line on virgin drafting stock. They worked at a classic architects desks crafted of precious woods, with an adjustable work surface tilted to an individualized angle. Usually they would stand, lounge, and lean on the tall desk, discarding the chair or replacing it with a tall, narrow stool. In our day and age, we have done away with the standing desk. We hammer away at keyboards for days on end, slumped in a desk chair. Actually, a recent scientific study showed that working at a standing desk all day equals the exercise provided by a robust morning workout.
