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 hide away desk clutter and to keep your stationery 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.
