Office Desk: My Man is Talented!

CREATE, SPACESLauren CaronComment

It's time to celebrate! Jack finally finished a project in our new home!  The best part about it is that it's a new piece of furniture that has been designed and crafted all by himself!

Since, he loves the simple yet sophisticated lines of Danish furniture design, he pulled images and inspiration of vintage pieces and focused on his favorite attributes.  Such as the inset wooden handles, floating top and large side storage panels.  The materials also played a large role in the design, the wood is teak and the feet are brushed stainless steel.  In order to accommodate the modern necessities of modern computer work, he chose to modify some key elements. The greatest being that the computer tower is hidden behind the shelf/door on the left.

In addition to the design of the desk I thought it was important that the chair was both ergonomic and coordinated with the style of the desk.  We found the chair on Lexington Modern for a great price, shipping was also included.  To add a little bit of interest above the desk, I've hung his attractive artwork, the empty spot on the right has yet to find a fit. As for the other accessories I've pulled together an inspiration board to show how everything should come together once I have made all of the appropriate purchases. The idea is to keep the color palette clean and minimal in order to coordinate with the rest of the living room.  His desk as readers may not realize is one of the first things you see when you enter the apartment.  I must commend him for building a work station that is both handsome and productive!
