I spend a substantial amount of my day on my desk, typing away to glory. Most of the time I also end up eating my meals on it! And binge-watching on Netflix as well. And I’m sure that’s the case with most of us, since working from home became the new norm, and our home offices became our new hang-out spots. But having a great desk is really important! Simply a ‘good’ desk won’t do either. A great desk helps us work comfortably and effectively. It puts us in the right mindset, helping us achieve our daily productivity goals and checkmark all the tasks on our to-do list! Not only should our desks be clean, but they should also sport an ergonomic and functional design! And good looks are an added bonus. And finding a desk that does all of the above can be a Herculean task. But worry not, I’ve found the perfect desk for you – the Croft Sit-Stand Desk!
Designer: Jamie Hoyle and Katherine Mathew of Koda Studios
Designed by Yorkshire-based furniture studio Koda, the Croft Sit-Stand Desk is a height-adjustable desk for home offices. The elegant and chic-looking desk was designed by the studio’s managing director Jamie Hoyle and creative director Katherine Mathew. The duo was inspired by traditional writing desks while designing the Croft Sit-Stand Desk, and they integrated a touch-screen console that enables users to change the desk’s height from seated to standing positions.
Built using American Black walnut, the desk was designed to be a sophisticated and sleek addition to home offices, functioning as a modern furniture piece that is the “perfect fusion of form and function”, equipped with angled drawers that offer sufficient storage and provide a unique geometric quality to the desk. Besides being exceptionally good-looking, the desk also offers ergonomic comfort and value.
“This walnut design is defined by statement bold lines and sleek angles. Boasting plenty of storage, the desk has a geometric profile with angled storage compartments that are perfect for keeping loose stationery and filing in place,” said Koda. “We draw inspiration for our custom furniture designs from the artistry of interior design and architecture,” added Hoyle.
