Hooker Telluride Writing DeskItem#: HN-HOOK898
You don't have to have a desk with a lot of bells and whistles to get things done - all you really need is the kind of streamlined space offered by the Hooker Telluride Writing Desk, a sweeping, unfettered desk with modern amenities and unusual style details.
This refined desk is crafted with sturdy hardwood solids and select cherry veneers over engineered wood, a design dedicated to resisting both moisture and expansion over time. Two side utility drawers are outfitted with removable dividers to help you organize office supplies, CDs, and small electronics. The center drop-front drawer can be used as-is or can be quickly transformed into a flat work space that supports a keyboard or laptop. All drawers feature strengthening English or French dovetailing, smooth full-extension steel glides, and sturdy plywood bottoms and sides.
The bold black paint finish features a heavy reddish-brown rub through that subtly highlights the desk's exaggerated curved legs and deep carving throughout. Along the outer side of the desktop, smooth leather panels are trimmed with rustic exposed nail heads. A lower stretcher is accented with a shaped centerpiece.
- Keyboard area: 27.12W x 19.12D x 2.37H inches

Construction of Hooker Furniture
Hooker Furniture chooses solid woods and select wood veneers over wood frames to construct their high-quality pieces. By using wood veneer, pieces can be given a decorative look that can't be achieved with the use of solid wood alone. The veneers add beautiful accents of color and design to the pieces, and are placed over engineered wood product for strength. All Hooker wood veneers are made from renewable resources and are located primarily on the flat surfaces of the furniture, such as the case tops and sides.
Each Hooker furniture piece is finished using up to 30 different steps, including 13 steps of hand-sanding and accenting. Physical distressing is done by hand. Pieces receive two to three coats of solid lacquer to create extra depth and add durability to the finish. Each case frame is assembled using strong mortise-and-tenon joints, which are then reinforced by mechanical fasteners and glue. On most designs, end panels extend to the floor to add strength and stability. Panel-style furniture features strong panel and frame construction to help avoid warping.
Your Hooker furniture features finished case interiors to eliminate unsightly "raw wood" and to help protect items you may store inside drawers or cabinets. Drawer parts are given a urethane or lacquer finish to create smooth action and durability. All drawers use dovetails, either English or French, for years of problem-free use. Drawer bottoms are constructed from plywood and attached to the plywood drawer sides via the use of hot glue and/or wood glue blocks. Most drawers are full width, depth, and height to provide the maximum amount of storage space.
