We really love our new desk.
Having moved our old desk to the spare room to work from home on, we ordered this to make a social hub to play music from at the centre of the home.
Joshua was really helpful with helping me with a bespoke order. I found his customer service support fantastic.

This table was cut slim for us and the large shelf that was left will be used later to replace the white cupboard just as soon as I find the right brackets.
This was a bespoke order. Paid a little extra.
The cut was clean and tidy, you wouldn't know it was in fact cut down.
Really happy with the quality too.
Looks smart and contemporary.
Delivery was fast and the desk was packed really well. Arrived safely.
Unfortunately FedEx split up the delivery items so we had to wait for the full order a day later, found that somewhat frustrating.


What size bench should I order to fit under my table?
For VERA and LUDWIG tables we would recommend getting a bench 25cm shorter than the table to give allowance for the leg spacing.

For ASPA and LEON tables we would recommend getting a bench at least 31cm shorter.

Can you make my order a custom size?
We can indeed make our items to your desired specifications. Custom sizing (cutting smaller) is available for an extra charge here. If you're wanting a larger item please get in contact with us.
Is it possible to get an uneven edge on my item?
An uneven edge is something we come across on some of our reclaimed boards, they give the edge of the table a unique curve and form. It's available on our customisation listing.
Can I request additional personalisation on my order?
Absolutely, for any personalisation or unique hardware you wish to include please send us a message at and we'll get back to you and work through your request.

Do you have any more pictures of the finishes?
We have pictures of all our finishes on our Supporting Materials page here.
Will my item differ from the pictures?
We try to show a full range of the different finishes in our gallery, please bear in mind that with our reclaimed items we often include and finesse marks and imperfections from the material's previous life, highlighting the uniqueness of each board. The different finishes are all applied to the same reclaimed solid wood boards but variations are a certainty.
What type of product do you use for the surface?
We use Fiddes Hardwax oil, a long lasting and durable finish to which we blend our own custom formulation of pigments and flow agents. Any top ups to the finish can be done with their clear matt oil.

Do the products require assembly?
Yes, most of the products require a really simple assembly, with hairpin items it's just a few screws (requiring a screwdriver) and scaffold items require an Allen key as well. We also have a guide to assembly here. Any issues please let us know!
How do I look after my item?
It shouldn't need much looking after! The surface is hard wearing, and can be cleaned with normal surface cleaners Touch ups to damaged areas can be made with a little Fiddes Hard Wax Matt Oil, and a sponge. Fiddes also sell a specific cleaner for their finishes called 'wood flooring refresher'.
Could the design vary from the one on the listing?
We reserve the right to update designs so that we may improve our products or adapt to the reclaimed materials we have at the time

We offer free delivery to mainland UK on everything that we manufacture. Though other pricing does apply to other locations. Shipment prices will come up during checkout before payment is taken. For delivery abroad please see our question further down 'Do you deliver to...'
