Mid-Century Nelson-Inspired Laura Desk by Phloem Studio

Inspired by the lines of Shaker writing desks and the mid-century classic Swag desk by George Nelson, Ben Klebba of Phloem Studio designed the Laura Desk. The made-to-order desk has beautiful clean lines and handmade craftsmanship you won’t find with most companies.

Built in your choice of the finest hardwoods, the design features three open cubbies to organize your papers, as well as two drawers that have fun shapes carved out of them to hold your various office supplies. There are even two cord ports hidden in the cubbies so you can hide your unsightly cords away.
