Your smart study space starts with our sleek and sturdy Chelsea Corner Desk. With a kiln-dried hardwood frame for durability and English dovetail joinery for stability, this desk is built to last. We finish it by hand in multiple steps to create a rich look that will never fade. You can even purchase an optional hutch for extra storage (hutch sold separately).


  • Expertly crafted from solid poplar wood, rubber wood, plywood, beech veneers and MDF (medium density fiberboard), an engineered wood that lends strength and ensures that the desk will endure over time.
  • Drawers are crafted with English dovetail joinery, ensuring the strength of the drawer.
  • Finished by hand in our Simply White, which is a flat white paint and our most true clean flat white finish.
  • GREENGUARD Gold Certified. Meets or exceeds stringent chemical emissions standards. Learn more.
