Naturally stylish desks for every member of the family

14 August 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has affected our global community, and with schools unlikely to go back and businesses encouraging us to work remotely, parents and children alike are now more than ever ready to return to a new kind of normality. In the spirit of the back to school season, and in response to work-from-home arrangements, TREE has curated a selection of timeless, naturally stylish desks that will get everyone inspired to start afresh.

For your (growing) little one

Defined by its clever yet compact design, our Circa17 range plays with proportions and makes the most out of the smallest of spaces, with a size well suited to your growing child (or a petite but chic home office)! Perfect for those entering secondary school, our desk features a convenient drawer to store stationery along with compartments cleverly integrated underneath for books and other bits and bobs. Complete their study space with the Circa17 bookcase, with shelving in varied sizes and a drawer to store their belongings neatly and stylishly away. Indeed, there’s nothing childish about Circa17 – just a naturally stylish collection that’s sure to grow with your little one!

Our Circa17 collection is crafted from 100% solid wood, and is available in FSC-certified reclaimed teak, sustainably sourced American walnut and European oak.

For the teen

A desk that is sophisticated, timeless and a touch playful (like our Mr. Marius range) is perfect for teens who are ready to take on a world of responsibility but still embrace their youth. Crafted from sustainably sourced European oak, Mr. Marius features splayed legs and ivory-painted drawers that add a fun and fresh twist to traditional mid-century inspired design. Two compartments sit on its tabletop to keep stationery conveniently within reach, while three larger drawers are housed underneath to keep paperwork out the way.

For the grown-ups!

In need of an inspirational office for your continued work-from-home arrangement? We’ve got naturally stylish workspaces for the grown-ups, too! If you prefer a raw but rustic look, our Tuareg desk is right up your street. Its table top is beautifully crafted from reclaimed tropical hardwoods that create a spectrum of tonal browns, and reflect the various shades observed in the Sahara Desert – home of the relentless indigenous tribe, Tuareg. A slimline dark grey frame adds a cool contemporary contrast to the weathered wood, while open shelving underneath provides space to store all your work essentials away maintaining a clean and clutter-free setup. Complete the look with one of our natural lighting table lamps, which add plenty of warmth with their organic silhouettes whilst providing ample light as you work.

For those who gravitate towards a clean and pared-back look, our Oscar collection is for you. Defined by mixed-materials and an original minimalist design, Oscar features truly timeless designs that will remain relevant throughout the years. Each piece is crafted from sustainably sourced natural and black stained teak with cool black detailing, and features hand carved grooves that subtly add dimension and make each piece naturally unique. Our Oscar desk comes with slimline legs to ensure there’s plenty of legroom underneath to stay comfortably seated, but can also be paired with the collection’s rack or storage box should you require more storage space to keep books, documents and other office essentials.

Desk companions

A desk indeed sets the foundation to an inspirational workspace, but it’s also important to consider the accessories that sit above it too. A set of our petrified wood book ends will keep your literature upright whilst lending plenty of natural flair. Each piece has undergone a natural fossilisation process, transforming fallen lumber into stone over millions of years. The result is a beautiful petrified effect, with each piece preserving its earthy wood structure in an assortment of naturally occurring colours.

In a previous post, we’ve covered how foliage in a workspace can help boost productivity (read more about it here). Give your favourite greenery a naturally stylish base with our terracotta pinocchio vases, lovingly handcrafted in the Philippines. Available in tonal shades of light and dark grey, this glazed pot features adorable facial features (like Pinocchio’s characteristic nose) that is sure to give your desk top plenty of personality. It’s the perfect finishing touch to house your indoor foliage – and keep your spirits up as you focus on what’s at task!

We hope that these timeless, naturally stylish desks will help you and your loved ones feel inspired to start afresh during this new back to school/work season!
