Industrial Revolution. In the early 20th century, the emergence of steel making operations across Canada provided architects and designers with materials that transformed the building and structural options of the day. New modern factories, warehouses and bridges with wide spanning truss and beam systems ushered in a new age of construction design. Our Portland collection draws inspiration from the awe-inducing beauty and simplicity of these magnificent geometrically engineered structures. With custom high leg metal hardware, and careful blending of subtle curves and angular edges, the Portland embodies the essence of great design. Modern... Rustic... Timeless.
The Portland Writing Desk, by Handstone Furniture, is a striking modern design from Handstone that incorporates industry-leading build quality. This made in Canada piece includes custom fitted drawers with finished interiors and glued and inset triple ply drawer bottoms for maximum strength. The drawers also feature English dovetail construction and heavy duty ball bearing glides, while glued and dovetailed miter joints lend similarly robust durability to the rest of the desk.
The Portland Writing Desk comes in your choice of 42 wood stains available on Buxton Cherry, Solid Maple, Solid Oak, Brushwork Maple and Heritage Maple. This product features 38 different hardware options to suit any style and space.
Handstone Furniture builds custom-made, solid wood furniture to last for generations. It’s been that way since starting in 1999 as a one-man woodworking shop. Today Handstone remains a family-owned Canadian manufacturer that is rooted in an unwavering commitment to quality. All furniture continues to be constructed from kiln-dried cherry, maple and red oak hardwoods. Handstone continually invests in adding state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment for their facilities. The Handstone culture never forgets that there's only one thing equal to the precision and accuracy of modern manufacturing processes: the technique and attention to detail that comes from having a reverence for old-world craftsmanship. Handstone Furniture is different… with each piece entirely customized-to-order. It takes a little longer to build and have it delivered, but we think you’ll agree... the lasting beauty is worth it. The options are endless - the choice is yours.
