Helen Desk & Cecil Chair

$1,440 $1,920
Keyboard Tray or Drawer:


Included in this bundle, our clutter-free Helen Desk and classic Windsor style Cecil Chair.

Select desk size, and specify keyboard tray or standard drawer. 

Our Helen Desk is made from solid, knot-free pine. Finished here in Antique Cherry, the apron is morticed into the legs and secured with oversize pegs – a practical, and somewhat ornamental, design detail. Underside rails on either end of the tabletop are curiously tactile without being fussy. Ideal for the home office or family room computer, select keyboard tray or four-corner dovetail drawer. 

The Cecil Chair is a classic Windsor continuous back, hand made in Quebec. Solid wood throughout, the leg assembly and back spindles are maple, the hoop is steam-bent ash, and the seat is pine. Rake-and-splay legs are affixed to the seat mechanically, and glued. The top of the legs form though-tenons, which slot into tapered mortices in the seat. Finally, glued wedges are hammered into the top of the legs from above, locking them into place. It's an elegant technique and a proven, resilient joint. The four visible leg-tops in the surface of the seat are a nice touch.
