Influenced by the Architectural Style Guide, an Internet-based compendium of information about American architecture, the Tribeca Loft Cherry Single Pedestal Desk by Kathy Ireland combines modern style with soft and inviting touches. This desk provides both the style of a desk perfect for a typewriter, and the functionality of a desk perfect for the wired home office. The single pedestal provides for a row of drawers for your important documents and office supplies. The drawers have superior-level construction with ball bearing glides and strong joint connection that can accommodate 50-pound loads. Each drawer has a different function. The pencil drawer can be converted to a keyboard drawer for computers. On the top of the opposite side are two utility drawers, one with dividers for small office supplies like staplers. The bottom drawer opposite the pencil drawer is a vertical file for your important documents. The desk is made of cherry/elm wood solids, a combination of cherry and elm; and cherry veneers, a thin layer of cherry attached to a stronger "mixed" piece of wood for strength and durability.

To care for your furniture, wipe with a soft dry cloth. Microfiber cloths are recommended. To remove fingerprints and other residue, we advise that you use EcoLab's Endust. To reduce residual finish odors when new, lemon-scented Pledge by SC Johnson is recommended. Both Endust and lemon-scented Pledge could be found at local drug stores. We also advise that you spray these cleaning products onto the cloth that you will use to wipe the furniture. It is best not to spray the cleaner directly on the finish. Use coasters to protect the surface from liquids. If your furniture becomes scratched or marred, furniture touchup pencils, which come in a variety of colors, are available in most hardware stores and can be used to repair minor scratches. Avoid placing furniture directly near heat or air-conditioning outlets. Exposure to extreme temperature variations can damage any fine wood furniture, including variations caused by humidifiers, heat vents, and fireplaces.
