Laurier Desk in Black/Williams
Laurier Desk is smart, luxurious and designed to work.
Available in three sizes, even the small one, at 60" long x 30" deep, provides a generous worktop – to say nothing of the large one. Computer in the middle, plenty of room on the sides for notebooks, a lamp, piled up papers, and back-burner projects alike.
Each outside pedestal provides one file drawer, one common drawer, and one slim drawer, along with an elongated slim drawer between the pedestals. The drawers are flush-fit, and the drawer faces are satisfyingly plain. With an exterior depth of only 3", the benefits of the slim drawers cannot be overstated. Things don't pile up, because they can't. Tablets, cables, pens, notebooks, disk drives – squared away and easy to find.
Both file drawers are fit with solid quality full extension hardware, so the drawer pulls out of the cabinet completely, making the files more accessible. Files run perpendicular to the face of the drawer. Seated at the desk, you could easily look over, facing the labels on the front of the files, and leaf through. Files hang on steel rods which can be setup for legal or letter.
The face-frame around all of the drawers is trimmed in 1/4" applied bead moulding. It ads an element of polish and a subtle shadow line to catch the eye. The base moulding runs tight to the floor, which keeps the look clean, and helps with dust too.
The Laurier Desk strikes a note of robust formality. Finished on all four sides, as well as the interior, it's ideal facing out into a room, and looks great up against the wall too. Construction is frame and panel, with the panels trimmed in a not-too-heavy, not-too-slight, ogee profile, bolection moulding.
A desk can be as well used as any piece of furniture in the house. A lot of us sped a lot of time working. Our work is important to us. A desk is a tool, it has to work well. It doesn't have to be beautiful, but it certainly can be. And what a difference it makes.

Full Extension File Drawer
The lower outside drawers on our Laurier Desk are both file drawers. We use solid quality, full extension hardware, so the drawer pulls out of the cabinet completely, making the files more accessible. Files run perpendicular to the face of the drawer, which is ideal for leafing through when seated at the desk. Files hang on steel rods which can be setup for legal or letter.
We're experienced with a variety of two-tone finish techniques. This style, we call "Wear Marks". Once the cabinet is painted we'll wear back the paint to expose the bare wood, and then layer on some stain to tone down the white of the exposed wood. It's a by-hand process that involves sand paper and scouring pads, depending on the precise effect. We'll then clear-coat with one sealer and two lacquer applications, which provide a uniform texture and reflective value. We can dial marks up or down, or avoid them all together.
