Beautiful fumed oak with lovely, tactile leather to help you crunch numbers or write memos late into the night.

As with the matching Govan Desk Chair, this desk’s design is strong and masculine, adhering to the proud, construction past of the Glaswegian borough its named after.

Ideal for an office or study, this sophisticated piece is generous in size and ample in storage. The beautiful pair of pull out drawers will swallow up all desk clutter leaving you a clear and tidy work space on top. It also makes for a great thinking space, especially with a cheeky glass of whisky when needed.

David Watson is an advocate of local design and industry, seeking to support not only the design businesses but also local suppliers. Despite the continuing upwards trend in timber prices and the temptation to buy from abroad, chiefly America, the maker still commendably sources the majority of his materials from Scotland.

What our customers say...

I received my order of candles, some for myself and some for Christmas pressies.

Author has gone to the trouble of beautifully wrapping the ones I had for as gifts, which made giving them to my family such a joy! And I am thoroughly enjoying burning the ones I purchased for myself. I think Tranquil is my favourite and remind me of being in a very luxurious spa! Thank you Author! Can I order some more please?!
