Feather Falls, an executive desk design by Kelly Maxwell Designs that utilizes ethically sourced natural wood. Its design was inspired by the natural shape of the Bastogne walnut wood slab used as its desktop. This type of walnut was first discovered by Luther Burbank, a plant breeder, in the 1890s. The Bastogne walnut is a hybrid species from crossbreeding California’s Claro and England’s naturalized walnut varieties.
This stunning Bastogne walnut wood slab serves as the focal point for the executive desk design. The live edge desktop features an infinity waterfall fold, which creates a sleek and functional design. The base cabinets are equally impressive, with an English walnut frame, mortise, and tenon mitered corners. The panels feature Claro walnut tree (feathers) crotch sequence, all cuts from the same tree. Enhanced by traditional wood joinery, this minimalist design includes mortise and tenon, pen and peg, and simple wood hinges. A natural hard wax finish protects the wood surfaces, ensuring durability and highlighting natural wood beauty.
The Feather Fall executive desk boasts push-to-open technology for the base cabinet drawers and door, complemented by a pen drawer carved from a Bastogne walnut wood slab. A sleek desktop organizer conceals a computer monitor that smoothly lifts from the base cabinet via a remote control or app. The desk has a discreet desktop cabinet, which provides electrical outlets, standard and C-USB ports, and extra storage space. The monitor cabinet has space for a small printer or extra storage.
