Why we love this product

A gorgeous desk handcrafted from oak

Ideal for a home office or study, the Tambour Desk is a beautiful, handcrafted contemporary design. It has a modern, Danish feel yet it would comfortably sit in a traditionally styled space due to its minimalist, clean-lined style. As this piece is made to order, it can be made with or without a drawer. We recommend ordering it with a drawer to hideaway desk clutter and to keep your stationary organised. Its hidden panel reveals access for plugs or to be used as a secret compartment making it highly functional as well as stunning. It's the perfect desk to pen one's memoirs or crack on with daily business. 

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?!
