The floors look like oak. What species is the desk and bookcase from? They look very nice together. AM trying to match a species of wood floor with all of the beautiful dark oak trim, moldings and doors in my reno home and am having trouble knowing what will work best.

Desk - We are building a home with several built in desk areas. I do not want to use granite on all of them but my builder says the wood tops don't stand up. Please tell me what your experience has been with this desk. What is wood species? Stained with poly?

Wood desks are classic and any hardwood top will last you a very long time. Here's a link to one from 1450 made of Oak.
http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O131494/desk-cupboard-unknown/

562 years is a good long life for a desk, I think! Any hardwood desk top will stand up to normal use for a very long time (soft woods like Pine will not do as great). Some classics used on desks are Rosewood, Mahogany and Oak. The furniture building experts on here will know more species, I'm sure.

I think your instinct is correct, that granite topped desks everywhere may look dated and it's more a question of taste than longevity- granite desks feel a bit 90's to me, it'd have to be done very carefully to keep it fresh and current.

Granite will last 1000s of years, but do you plan to be around to use it then? What kind of heavy use do you plan for your desks? If it's normal desk stuff, wood will be fine and look very classic and beautiful.
