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 ordered a gorgeous pinch bowl for a girlfriends 40th and it arrived as promised; beautiful wrapped with a lovely personalised note and information on the piece and who made it. Everything was of such high quality and elegantly put together….my friend absolutely loved it and really appreciated the effort I had gone to. I didn't tell her it wasn’t quite all done by me!
