Ok....this is making me mental. What are the wood and iron thingies to the right of the desk on the floor?

Those look like old jewelry boxes; you can see the keyholes in the front of them. They've been repurposed on their sides as a base for some installation art. The black pipes going into the desk are likely just artful ways of stabilizing the base (and tree branches stemming from it), similar to the way you'd anchor a big bookcase to wall studs. The branches come out at an angle, so they'd likely topple over otherwise. The old plumbing pipes were just a cool decorative touch. I'm not the designer, but that's what it looks like to me. Interesting use of random objects to make an artful statement if you ask me. :-)

what is the finish on the desk. I that is not the original colour from restoration hardware.

Dark Walnut by "Minwax"?

Can you please verify if this is the 62" or 80" desk? It appears to be the 62" but hard to tell for sure. Thank you!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to Decor From the Forest and Sea
Gather some handsome twigs and branches and displaying them by leaning on a wall. In the home office, these will provide a constant source of inspiration every time you look up from your work.
Becky Harris added this to Branches Bring Organic Forms Indoors
Big branches make these otherwise plain white corners anything but boring.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Bring a Little of Your Garden Inside for Fall
This room makes me want to sit down and look at a good coffee table book. Branches on either side of the desk add personality to a space that may have otherwise felt stiff and unfinished. I like branches for their naturally organic shapes and also because they're easy to find.
When the current owners moved in, the backyard was pretty overgrown. They used some of the trees that had to be pruned to bring a little of the outdoors into this office, another area of the "outhouse." The desk — which looks in keeping with the character of the wood throughout the main house — is from Restoration Hardware.

Samantha Schoech added this to Your Décor: Enchanted Forest
Use branches as sculpture. Hey, and they can double as hat racks!
Bring in nature. "The desk is from Restoration Hardware, and the branches are from a tree that had to be cut down in the backyard to accomodate a deck," says Tineke Triggs of Artistic Designs for Living. "We never like to cut trees down, so we thought keeping a portion of it in the office was a good reminder of the circle of life, nature and things worth living."
