Wooden Desks

WFH? Happily with a wood desk

Now so many of us are working from home, desks have come out of the shadows and one crafted from wood is often the star piece in contemporary living spaces. And we're all for it here at MADE.COM. Not only are they the perfect place to stash work-related bits and bobs, but they can also make you feel more productive and even inspired simply by adding some snaps and artwork. Our edit of wooden desks has everything from upright models and corner units to space-saving modular designs in solid ash, oak and more.

A classic material made modern

You may prefer a contemporary feel, but you can still make room for heritage materials in your modern home. And the benefits of wood lie in its ability to shapeshift to suit a variety of looks. Choose a wooden desk with a powder-coated metal frame to bring an Industrial touch to your WFH nook. If you've got a penchant for vintage vibes, a wooden desk with drawers, curves and a slatted front in an Art Deco design will hide files and stationery in style. Or, if you like keeping things traditional, go for a solid wooden desk for your home office.

Tuck away or display

Whatever your decor goals, every successful scheme needs storage, as well as somewhere to display your favourite possessions. With an artfully placed desk, you can achieve both at the same time. Look out for wide wooden desks with drawers and ample space up top for family snaps and a pot plant or two, or go for corner designs with room for files, books and artwork to give your space an uncluttered look. You could also place modular shelving in warm wood next to your table to store cutlery, glasses and cups.

Brighten up with clever lighting

When choosing your new wooden desk, consider how you'll light it. For close work like sewing and scrapbooking, an adjustable lamp will let you focus on the detail. To help divide the home office from chilled spaces, you could go for an overreach or upright floor lamp placed next to your desk, and group both onto a pretty rug. And if you're planning on showcasing the wood itself by choosing a matching chair, an overhead light will help emphasise the natural tones, creating a welcoming ambience.
