What is the long counter/surface made from?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I'm pretty sure that is a modular office furniture system from Ballard designs. The counter has niches underneath where the drawer units fit and almost lock in. I have a very similar system form pottery barn.

It's a custom top made of maple and painted.

It is 132". We could not find the ready- made solution so I designed these work stations using standard drawer units topped with a custom work space top.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

One way to establish a shared zone is to focus it on an activity - like homework (the chalkboard above has a similar function). In this room, the shared space offers lots of storage, too - an extra bonus.
The Shabby Nest added this to Keep 'em All Happy: Great Shared Spaces
Shared spaces are not always bedrooms. In this study space, separate cabinets and drawers help to create individual workstations.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Ask Santa for a Craft Room
Here's a family workstation that would work well for crafting, homework or just surfing the net.
