Desk From Reclaimed wood - The Perfect Addition

It’s no secret the world has essentially changed overnight. For those who are working remotely, what used to be hour long commutes in and out the city each day have turned into a two minutes walk to the home office. Meetings are virtual now, and even those who never really embraced technology can lead a Zoom call with ease. So much has changed in our routines and workspace, and people are quickly realizing their home office needs a major upgrade. What’s the best way to achieve this goal? A desk from reclaimed wood.

Functionality at Its best

After just a few days of working from home, many people realize how inefficient their home office is.  Small monitors, old equipment, a printer that says it is almost out of black ink even when you just put in a new cartridge  – it’s all frustrating.  But, just like your bed in your bedroom (another great upgrade you can read more about here), your desk is at the center of it all in your office.

Like any room, there is no “one size fits all” answer.  Your home is unique, unlike any other out there.  Given the amount of time now spent at home in the office, your desk should be custom tailored to fit your exact needs. 

That’s where we come in.

An addition that's functional and beautiful

You're spending more time than ever in your home office. You deserve to love ever minute of your workday with a desk from reclaimed wood.

Out of the box options just can't cut it

With online shopping and big box office store retailers, there is an endless supply of cookie cutter desk options on the market.  Regardless of where you purchase one of these desks, you’ll quickly realize they all have similar issues.  Some more common problems are:

  1. Mass Produced Desks are Poorly Made. Unlike when a desk is made from reclaimed wood, a store bought desk is not made to last.  A “Wooden” desk is often made from many other synthetic materials instead of wood.  Press particle board covered with a thin wood veneer is generally best case scenario.  Why does this matter?  Desks made from pressed wood and particle board with faux finishes wear down quickly with regular use, and cannot be refinished.  A desk from reclaimed wood will last a lifetime.
  2. Self Assembly is Frustrating. Most store bought desks require assembly when you get them home.  Hundreds of tiny pieces and poorly written instructions are the norm, with most of the desks coming from overseas.  Missing parts are common, which often require a trip back to the store.  Worse yet, many times you have to wait for the missing parts to be shipped to you, causing a massive delay in your office set up.  Our desks from reclaimed wood are made to order for you, and set up in your office.
  3. Store Bought Desks are Not Functional. If you look past the quality and frustrating assembly, the fact of the matter is most. store bought desks are surprisingly not functional.  From drawers in odd places, to cubbies you don’t need, store bought options are just inefficient.  When you work with Wood with a Past, we custom design your desk to meet your exact needs so you know it will be the perfect fit for your space, and perform to your expectations.
