I am looking for a desk 8' x 2' x 29" tall. Can this be a one piece wood? Where can I buy? also selves same length?
Beautiful work and a smart use of a small space.

Hi there, Was there a particular kind of look you were after? You may have some luck looking at what is available on the inmod.com or dwr.com or yliving.com websites. Also, if you are after a vintage piece, craigslist.org can be a great resource.

Hope that helps!

Hi, would you be able to refer me to the company that did the leather desk-top or give me some guidance on type and grade of leather? Gorgeous outcome!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Check your ergonomics. Pay attention to how you feel after logging a few hours at your desk at home. If you have any pain or soreness, it's time to check the ergonomics of your setup.• Your chair height should be adjusted so that your feet can be flat on the ground.• Align your screen with your sight line to avoid eye strain and shoulder stiffness. If you have a laptop, consider putting it on a stand to adjust the height.• Check the lumbar support of your chair. Add a pillow or get a new chair if you have been experiencing lower back pain.• Invest in a few cushy pads to keep your wrists elevated as you type and use the mouse, especially if you spend a lot of time at the computer.
5. Mix modern function with Victorian details. With our reliance on modern technology and equipment, the traditional freestanding desk in the middle of the room may be a little impractical. Cables trailing across the floor are unsightly and dangerous, so situating desks around the room's perimeter has become more popular. Here, fitted units and the use of dark wood and leather loosely imply Victorian style in a very modern aesthetic.
5. Working in white in Illinois. Textured wallpaper provides a nice sense of contrast in this mostly white office, transitioning between the built-ins and the dark desktop.
