Why we love this product

Handmade from graphite resin and British Horse Chestnut timber

This gorgeous desk box shows the beauty of British Horse Chestnut timber with its swirls that create a stunning smoky/milky pattern across the light coloured timber. It contrasts beautifully with the graphite resin as if the Chestnut is a sandy shore and the resin is a dark body of water. The box is lined with a luxurious goat suede to house all your desk clutter in your office or study. This desk box can also be used as a trinket box or a jewellery box and will look right at home in any contemporary or traditionally styled space. 

Bespoke variations are available such as the colour of the goat suede. Please get in touch if you would like to enquire about a bespoke version of this stunning display of British craftsmanship.
