The usual questions.
How long will it take to get my desk?
That depends on the desk. If you really need a desk now, you can order the desk you want and select the option to order a temporary top. We'll send the temporary top ASAP along with the base so you can get up and running in no time.
Otherwise, the Response Desk ships within days. Hardwood Slab desks a little longer. Slims, Evolves, and our other desks all are cut, crafted, finished, and packed per order - we make exactly what you want. That takes a little longer. Check out lead time page to see how long things are taking right now.
How is the desk finished?
We use a combination of traditional furniture finishes and modern furniture finishes. Combining artisan beauty with modern technology.
So, we hand wipe stains, we use traditional shellac to bring out the natural beauty of wood, and we seal it all with a protective, smooth, beautiful, low-VOC, water-based urethane finish (it's pretty awesome).
If that doesn't suite you, drop a line - we can finish your desk with Rubio Monocoat if you prefer a hand rubbed oil finish.
Which desk base should I choose?
This depends on the desk and you. A couple of the desks (The Evolve, E2, & Michelle) require an extended range desk base to give you a full range of heights. So when you order one of those - we don't give you the option - we automatically send you the extended range desk base.
Our other desks give you the option - you can choose the mid-range desk if those height ranges work for you. If you're a bit shorter or taller - definitely consider the extended range base to give you height flexibility. When in doubt, get the extended range for the added flexibility.
Other options are purely up to you. Finishes are personal taste (though our "humble" designer is happy to help you pick if you need help). The programmable controller is nice if you don't feel like holding down an up/down button.
If you still have questions, don't hesitate to ask. We're a small, personable company and are happy to help.
