We've looked at pricey media options and more recently, inexpensive desk solutions. Even though there's retail options for every pocketbook, we've been more recently taken with the work of local artisans. In our own corner of Kansas City, we turn to the beautiful modern and mid-century stylings of Jerad Foster and Nate Adolf.

Although our budget doesn't always allow for an artisan made piece, it can easily be forgotten about as an option. In a world where you don't even have to venture to a store to purchase furniture (thank you internet), it can be a cinch to forget about all the options available to you.

Personally, we've spent countless hours looking for the right desks and media storage solutions for the different homes we've lived in over the years. Although we find joy in hunting through thrift stores, auctions and online options to find something that "will do for now," when you work with an artisan, pieces can be tailored to your specific space.

Check out the works above from Studiobuild in Kansas City and see how awesome the work of a skilled craftsman really can be (not to mention the beauty that they can bring to your home). This studio even has the customer in mind and has taken the fright out of having a custom piece built. They offer fixed rate packages that make things simple and hassle free. If the artisan near you doesn't offer such a convenience, don't be afraid to ask about such possibilities!
