Working from home is on the rise — it’s a win-win situation for employers and employees. Telecommuting ends the daily grind of commuting, but it also eliminates your company desk and office space. Setting up a functional and aesthetically pleasing home office can be challenging. However, furnishing your new work place with a unique desk can add unparalleled character, as well as organized storage to your home office.
Why not choose a desk that will make you feel as if you’re sailing the high seas while you’re working from home? Treat yourself to a splendid reproduction of an antique captain’s or navy desk and you might feel akin to a seafaring officer reporting for duty.

Sturdy construction, abundant drawer space and a solid brass kick bar are reminiscent of a captain’s desk of old. A faux-leather inset embellishes a spacious working desk surface.
