Carter Writing Desk

Materials

Oak on top, because it’s the hardwood to end all hardwoods – for us at least. Oak means it’ll look good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two desks will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber. Plus, with oak, it comes with a real sense of heritage. In Carter, it’s combined with incredibly strong steel.

The finish: oak

Brushing, buffing, staining – they’re just three of the seven steps your desk’s tabletop will go through. They’re what make it look a bit rustic, without you having to use aged timber. Perfect for people who like the idea of vintage, but prefer things that are actually ‘brand new’. The last step is our timber treatment oil – IsoGuard®. Which, in a nutshell, makes oak easier to live with. Think of it as a bit of a defence barrier, but one that you can’t see, feel or would ever know was there.

The finish: steel

Carter’s legs are powder-coated and then baked at scorching temperatures so that you’re left with an almost matte black colour (there’s a tiny hint of bronze) that’s as tough as old boots. It’s a process that’s quicker than the traditional method of ‘quenching’, and far more robust than paint or lacquer.

Just so you know

This piece is made from natural timber, which will expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes in your piece are completely natural and to be expected. Just know that, in the very unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care of Carter

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your Carter writing desk, so that it stays looking as beautiful as the day you first brought it home.

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you and take away the packaging for recycling.

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then, free of charge.

But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out to your address for collection.
