Desk Work

Virginia Wolf wrote from a board on her lap under a chestnut tree. Rudyard Kipling had his walnut chair lifted up on blocks so he could work comfortably at his French dining table. Jane Austen wrote her massive novel, "Pride and Prejudice", on pieces of ivory paper not more than two inches wide on a tiny 12-sided desk that wasn’t much bigger. Ernest Hemingway wrote his famous stories standing up. Amazingly each of them had their own style and true, they are famous for their works created from it, but doesn’t it make you wonder what they could have done if they had a proper desk and chair!  

Whether you are working on the next great novel, designing a website or simply surfing the web, you don’t have to go to the extreme lengths these authors did. With the inspiring warm oak desk from Oak Park (pictured below) and optional matching chair (got to have the chair— blocks not included), you can get creative or just piddle. We’ll leave the activities up to you but when it comes to home office desks, home desks or as a corner desk this one will fit the bill.

Oak Park Desk and Chair

Modern day conveniences, like the pull-out keyboard tray and side tower storage, enhance the timeless design of this solid oak duo and give you the perfect computer desk.

Take a seat and get crackin’ and let us know when you get your first manuscript acceptance letter. We also want to hear how you write…do you stand or sit, under a tree or at a desk.
