Flexible options for office desks

Office Desk

With the increase in hybrid and flexible working, it has never been more important to have an office desk that can adapt easily to suit its space and purpose.  Home office space often has to double up as a workstation, homework space and even a craft or hobby area. In the workplace, different teams might be using the same room on varying days, calling for simplicity and flexibility.

Our trestle desk solution is designed specifically for flexibility. The original design has been adapted in lots of different ways for various customers and its versatility makes it hugely popular.

How to Create a Versatile Trestle Desk

Thanks to our sophisticated CAD/CAM technology, in-house design expertise and well-equipped CNC workshop we have perfected the manufacturing process for wooden trestle legs.

We can make the legs in different wood combinations and finishes to suit any interior style. The design itself is elegant and contemporary. The legs work brilliantly with a glass top which shows off the shape and tone of the wood to great effect.

Once you’ve chosen your style, we’ll talk to you about how you plan to use the desk and the space available. Our experience in making trestle legs means we can quickly calculate the leg dimensions depending on the size and shape of the desk and whether it is a standard or corner desk.

We can calculate the correct dimensions for almost any kind of desktop and for new tops and glass tops we can advise the exact size to order.

Other uses for the trestle concept

Our wooden trestles have become one of our bestsellers because they are versatile and look so stylish when paired with a glass top. They are more than a desk to work at and many customers see them as a style statement, whether at home or in the office.
