This extremely handsome Colonial Pedestal Desk is designed and styled from the colonial era. It is hand crafted by skilled carpenters and features fluted carved columns. The top consists of three slim drawers and below there are a further six good sized drawers, three in each pedestal all with solid brass handles in either antiqued or shiny finish. The back has been paid just as much attention as the front having smart hand polished panels which match the panelled sides. The desk writing surface is a good quality leatherette which is easy to maintain and keep clean and is available in a number of colours, however you can also choose to have real leather (extra charge applies – please ask for details). There is a choice of four sizes or in a made to measure size of your own!

Desks can be custom made to different sizes plus you can alter the drawer configuration to suit, for example by converting 2 of the drawers into a file drawer to hold suspension files. More details about this service are under the bespoke section.

The kneehole width of the smaller desk sizes can be restrictive – the 122 cm model has a kneehole width of 42 cm (in the centre). This can be increased by decreasing the width of the pedestals, however this means smaller drawers! Please ask before ordering if dimensions are a concern.

“I ordered a Victorian style mahagony Telephone seat with shelf back in June. It was delivered this morning and is absolutely beautiful. I am very pleased with the workmanship and the colour scheme. It was well worth the wait. Andy and Isobel were both very helpful with the order from start to finish. Thank you soooo much. I will definitely order again from ADK furniture.”

“Delivery took a while but then you have to expect that as every item is hand carved to order. They are shipped with copious amounts of packing material which ensures there is no damage or marks whatsoever on the journey. Every item is exactly as described and look more impressive than the pictures when you have them in place. I will always check here before I want any items of furniture in the future because the service and quality is second to none. and well worth the wait. This furniture will last you a lifetime.”

“Absolutely wonderful. The sleigh bed and desk we ordered from ADK exactly what we had been looking for. The style was perfect, the u are both beautifully worked. The quality is superb. The bed is really solid and an once assembled feels like it will stand the test of time. The same for the desk. There was a 16 week lead time and ADK kept to this schedule even during the lockdown. So we completely happy with our experiences with ADK.”

“Just a note to say I received the bookcase yesterday and I am delighted with it. It matches the drinks cabinet that I got previously from you perfectly. Again many thanks. Regards.”

“Dear Isobel and Andy, Just to let you know that we have assembled the desk which was delivered on Monday. It is beautiful and well worth the wait. We are so pleased. They have done a superb job. Fantastic quality. Thank you for the great service.”

Revd Dr William M. Schweitzer, All Saints Presbyterian Church
“It has been a pleasure to work together with Andy to accomplish our goals for our Grade I listed church building. We needed a large pulpit, communion table and linking church chairs all with bespoke designs to be made in solid Honduran Mahogany but within a modest budget–a combination that other companies considered impossible. Well, AKD delivered exactly what we wanted: on time and on budget. They are the best kept secret in the UK furniture market.”
