Natural Materials and Shapes in the Home Office

After spending the weekend exploring the nature surrounding us on the central California coast, we instantly became enamored with this wooden desk. Found in an amazing Park Slope, Brooklyn brownstone remodeled by Abelow Sherman architects, the desk is a solid piece of lumber that still features some of the rough edges and asymmetry you find when you hack up a nice tree.

Other than moving your office into an actual tree, this is a beautiful way to incorporate the wonders of the natural world into the digital realities of working in the 21st century. Extra brownie points if you can recreate this scene by using reclaimed wood rather than chopping down a living tree!

The rest of this Park Slope brownstone is absolutely stunning. You can check out the full gallery at Abelow Sherman's site.
