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.

Absolutely thrilled with our desk. It's the perfect size, feels very sturdy and is beautiful too. I love the detail of the logo on the bottom of the protector feet. It also arrived much sooner than we were expecting. Would highly highly recommend!

I asked for a mod on the table to cut a slice off to make it into a monitor shelf and they were very obliging.

Unfortunately packaging on the corner was not quite good enough and there was courier damage on one of the corners and a tiny scratch on the Formica.

Contacted them and they were very apologetic - even though mostly FedEx's fault - gave me a part refund.

Very happy with the desk - massive improvement on my last one.

The wooden stand legs were separate from eBay.

Can you make my order a custom size?
We can indeed make our items to your desired specifications, as these desks are prefinished there is an extra charge for customisation here. Please add your desired dimensions to a note in the checkout page to personalise your order! Please note this will add a week or so to the dispatch.
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.

Does the desk require assembly?
Yes, with hairpin items it's really simple, it's just a few screws (requiring a screwdriver). 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'.

Is there any extra cost for delivery?
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...'
How long will it take to deliver my order?

Variations in time shown during checkout. As these are bespoke items made from scratch there is a chance of an additional wait for more complicated customisation requests.
