Think back to the last time you bought a car, or even a bed. Did you enjoy a test drive, or wriggle around on the mattress in the shop, to check it wasn’t too firm? These are hard earned purchases after all, where you’ll spend vast swathes of your time, and we need to be sure they are ‘just so’.
But what about the desk at which you work? With millions of us suddenly catapulted into remote working, the chances are that you’ve hastily carved out an office at home. And, like the car your drive or the mattress where you lay your head, your desk is a vital investment. You’ll spend hours sitting at it every day, and making the right choice pays dividends.
At Forest to Home, we passionately believe that a desk is much more than a desk. It’s a place where dreams are born, where inspiration strikes and where life-changing decisions are made. Here, you’ll forge relationships and experience the highs and lows of working life. Your desk is where you’ll shape your future, and it has its own unique story to tell.
Given our strange new times, it’s little wonder that Forest to Home has seen a huge upsurge in orders for bespoke timber desks over the last few months. Unlike mass-produced furniture, our desks are timeless and will live on through generations. Each handcrafted piece is custom-made to be as unique as you are, without limitations.
Whether you need a desk to fit that awkward alcove or a style that wraps around the corner of a room, our Wiltshire workshop gives you complete freedom of design. From gently curving live edges, to desks with storage and dramatic expanses of ash or oak, this is completely customisable furniture.
And of course, it’s not just the shape and size that’s entirely flexible, it’s your choice of timber too. From honey-hued oak to pale ash, or a more attention-grabbing walnut, these are desks handcrafted to fit seamlessly into your lifestyle. We also offer a multitude of finishes, ranging from tinted oils to distinctive graphite shades – whatever your aesthetic, we have something to suit you.
We like to think of our bespoke timber desks as pieces of art, and these handcrafted creations ‘give back’ – both to the environment and to your wellbeing. Bringing elements of the natural world is widely believed to lower stress levels, in addition to improving our cognitive performance. And you can work with a clear conscience too. Unlike much of today’s fast-furniture, every inch of timber we use is from certified, sustainable sources. Our tree planting programme also ensures we give far more to the natural world than we take away.
So, next time you pull up a chair and sit down to work, take a minute to think about where you are and what desk would really suit your needs. More than a car or mattress, a bespoke desk is an enduring investment that will really stand the test of time. This is furniture without compromise, sculpted to look good and last.
If the time is right for you to invest in a timeless desk, why not give us a call or arrange to come and see us. Seeing is believing, after all.
