Care

Care for Wood Top Products

CLEANING WOOD

  • For everyday cleaning, apply a small amount of warm water to a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth. The cloth should be slightly damp.
  • Gently wipe the surface in the direction of the grain to remove any surface dust.
  • Wipe dry immediately with a new, clean, lint-free microfiber cloth in the direction of the grain until the surface is completely dry.

POLISHING WOOD

  • Several times a year the top may be polished with wax-free furniture polish to clean, restore, and protect the surface. Frequent polishing is not recommended.
  • Use a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth and wipe in the direction of the grain.

SPOT CLEANING MARKS ON WOOD

  • Immediately wipe any liquids from the surface with a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth.

HANDLING AND CARE FOR WOOD

  • Use a clean, soft cloth to wipe all spills immediately to prevent water rings and stains. Do not allow spills to dry.
  • Avoid extreme heat, cold, or humidity variances.
  • Prolonged sunlight may affect the wood finish.
  • Protect wood surfaces from pens and sharp objects.
  • While wood is durable and easily cleaned, avoid using hard bristle brushes which may scratch the surface.
  • Avoid sliding objects over the surface to prevent scratching.
  • The use of coasters is recommended to prevent stains from liquids.

Care for Laminate Top Products

You can clean any laminate tabletop using a soft cloth with mild soap and warm water. Be sure to wipe the surface dry after.

FSC-Certified Wood

Our makers hand cut, plane, join and sand the wood tops, all sourced within 25 miles of the West Michigan workshop where each desk is made.

Easy-Care Laminate

Our laminate tops are certified GREENGUARD Gold® and tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals. They resist stains and moisture for easy wear and care.

Solid Steel

Each base is cut by hand from full lengths of premium, hot-rolled solid steel sourced from the Great Lakes region. It’s welded and ground by hand for an ultra-smooth touch, even over seams. A powder-coated finish enhances durability and resistance to chips and scratches.

Modern heirlooms in the making.

Crafted to last by makers who care.

Welcome to the woodshop.

Hand selected and cut, each length of wood is FSC certified and sourced within 25 miles of our makers’ West Michigan workshop. Most of the wood they use grew up around here, just like they did. Sourcing locally helps reduce fossil fuels and greenhouse gases while paying homage to the land they love. Roughly half of their wood would get discarded in a conventional woodshop, but here it’s recovered to make something new. Plank construction ensures long-lasting durability.

Makers in love with the Midwest.

Our artisans work in a small shop just off the shores of Lake Michigan. They hold a deep respect for nature, which inspires their work every day. Each step of the process involves a human touch, and nothing goes out the door if we’re not convinced it’s right.

Celebrating the slow furniture movement.

Quality over quickness. Sustainability over speed. This is furniture that’s made to last and feel good in your space. Building these pieces is a process, and it’s picky: not any old materials will do, and every step is watched by a human eye. Less waste, better living. It’s our way of being deliberate and investing in the concept of home.

Made the way you want it.

One size fits all just isn’t a thing here. Choose a solid wood or laminate top, then pick your base, made of solid steel and welded into your choice of five silhouettes. As beautiful as it is durable, this desk works double time as a dining room table when the workday wraps up. It’s furniture you’ll love having in your home thanks to its sculptural profile and rich material build.

Extremely satisfied

The tapered leg I chose for my Elements Desk has been fantastic- it provides stability and adds a stylish touch to the overall design. The assembly process was straightforward, with clear instructions and well-organized packaging. I am genuinely pleased with my purchase and look forward to enjoying my new desk for many years!

What an amazing desk

Ordered this desk on pre order and finally received it today. Wasn’t sure if the wait would be worth since my shipment was delayed a few times. However, it definitely was! The desk looks and feels amazing. It’s a sturdy and great looking piece. There’s always a chance of getting a damaged item in shipping but Haworth did a fantastic job at packaging. Love the solid wood feel and look! Definitely worth the price for me. I got the Ambrosia Maple btw

Doesn’t appear to be walnut. Color way off. Arrived damaged in multiple areas.

Doesn’t appear to be walnut. Color way off from walnut. Arrived damaged in multiple areas. Not sure if it is damage from shipping alone, seems like the manufacturing is rough in several areas.
