This versatile standing desk fulfills a variety of needs. The client wanted a desk where he could comfortably sit or stand to read or write. The solution was a standing desk with a matching stool and an adjustable surface. It is made of walnut, with stunning laurel burl and ebony inlay.
For writing, the desktop lies flat with a 42” wide surface that grows 16” when 2 drop leaves are extended. A center drawer, with pencil tray, provides storage for writing tools and stationery.
For reading, the tabletop’s center panel can be raised to a comfortable angle of choice for a book or tablet. A second lift releases the panel to return to its flat position. Bookshelves on either side accommodate large books and binders. The desk’s 42” height is ergonomically tailored to the client’s 6’ height.
This desk is proud to reside in a beautiful Washington DC office that overlooks the capitol.
