Like the whole of the Weatherford Collection, the Ellesmere Writing Desk keeps pretty as the top priority! The desk is large enough to function as a home office station and scaled such that it can work in a smaller room or in a master bedroom suite. With moldings and framed elements on the approach side as well as the ends, the desk is suitable to face into the room or toward a window. It includes a drop-down center drawer front for easy keyboard access, and a cord exit/grommet in the top for keeping electrical cords organized.
Inspired by the casual surroundings of the American farmhouse, Kincaid’s Weatherford collection blends timeless simple style with exceptional craftsmanship. Weatherford is a Kincaid original and is made from solid New Zealand Pine. It takes a number of design and construction techniques from the early wood workers. One example is the uneven board lay-up that shows off the individual pieces of solid wood that make up each part of the furniture. This highlights the solid wood furniture construction and becomes part of the two Weatherford finishes. The two finishes are:
- Cornsilk – a lighter, almost white color reminiscent of a time-worn painted fence
- Heather – a gray-brown blend inspired by weathered barns
Weatherford combines the best of modern furniture features with the authentic benefits of solid wood in an heirloom-quality construction. Notable features include the Kincaid Soft-Close drawer system. Kincaid also utilizes the best of the old-world construction techniques such as English Dovetails, mortise and tenon construction, floating tops and panels, full dust proofing, and multi-step hand-rubbed finishes.
