Americans are, indeed, spending more time at home—enjoying family pursuits, watching television or gaming, entertaining friends, and, from the looks of it, working.  Whether that work is family budgeting, telecommuting, or a new entrepreneurial endeavor, consumers are increasingly adding desks to their home offices, dens, family rooms or spare bedrooms.  And, many of those new purchases are from Sligh Furniture Company.  So the company that virtually began the home office revolution decades ago is still at the forefront with consumers and retailers, and unveiling two new desk introductions for the October 2009 High Point Market.


Emanating casual refinement thanks to classic European and American influences, the new Laredo leg desk (8050-1-LR) is a sumptuous series of curves and scale.  Carved S-shaped scroll legs rest on a gracefully arching stretcher.  The top is crafted from warm brown distressed leather adding to the Old World feeling and highlighting the lovely umber finished that is hand-waxed to a subtle sheen.  Mitered corners, antique pewter hardware and relaxed carvings complete the presentation. 

The Laredo desk has three drawers, the center one includes a drop-down front creating a keyboard tray with an ergonomic palm rest. 

Candlewood and Weathered Black

The popularity of smaller-scaled furnishings, whether for lofts, condominiums or homes, has given Sligh an entirely new dimension in which to showcase their outstanding quality and innovative thinking.  From their stunning successes in more moderately sized desks and accessories comes the new 8035 group in two hot finishes—Candlewood (8035-1-CA) and Weathered Black (8035-1-WB).

The 54”-wide pedestal desks include two letter/legal file drawers, two storage drawers, two pencil drawers and a fold-down center drawer with an ergonomic palm rest.  The light cherry Candlewood finish offers a casual, relaxed styling; the Weathered Black is the more dramatic cousin with it’s rubbed finish and Candlewood cherry top.  Both are perfectly suited for today’s comfortably furnished homes.
