Writing Desk

R 11,442.50
The Houtlander Writing Desk measures 75cm high, 140cm wide and 70cm deep. Slender in design yet sturdy in its stance. The dovetail jointed drawer shows an element of craft to this elegant writing desk.

It’s not for us to say where or how you should use our furniture. Clients who get what we’re trying to do with our clean, simple, slender, beautifully made designs, have repeatedly surprised us with the ways they’ve integrated them into different parts of their lives.

So when we say this is a “writing desk”, it’s not prescriptive, more a way of distinguishing it from the “office” desk that is more directly aimed at the work-from-homers with their laptops, monitors and charging cables. The differences are subtle: the writing desk is slightly deeper, and the legs are secured at an angle instead of being perpendicular.

Beyond that, this is a desk that will grace any space it is placed in, for whatever purpose. If you really want to “write a letter”, by hand, with a pen, it’s hard to imagine a better place to do so. There’s even a dovetail-jointed drawer for your stationery and your address book! But if you’re looking for a place to use a laptop or for the kids to do their homework, it fits those bills too.

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Paragraph: Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
