At L’Atelier Mata, we are passionate about designing desks that are more than just functional pieces of furniture. We firmly believe that a desk should inspire creativity and productivity. We strive to embody this ethos in every piece we create. That’s why we are proud to present our black walnut desk.
Crafted with the utmost attention to detail, this desk boasts a gorgeous black walnut slab for its desktop. The generous thickness of the wood exudes a sense of opulence and sophistication. The legs’ elegant tapering adds a touch of refinement and achieves a seamless aesthetic.
We understand that your workspace is where all the mental magic happens, and we believe that it should be a stunning and inspiring space that fuels your imagination. Our black walnut desk is not only beautiful but also practical, making it the perfect companion for your work environment.
100% Hardwood: Embrace the natural beauty and sustainability of solid wood with our exquisite furniture pieces. Not only does timber exude beauty, it’s also a living material that adds warmth and character to your home.
Artisanship: Each piece of furniture is built by hand at our atelier in France, using traditional techniques that ensure strength and longevity.
Repairability: We take pride in our commitment to sustainability and longevity. Our furniture is designed with repairability in mind, ensuring that it can be easily restored if needed. This means that you can enjoy your table for years to come, with the knowledge that it can be restored to its original beauty if necessary.
NO Composite Materials: We never use composite materials like MDF or chipboard in our designs, ensuring that our furniture is of the highest quality and durability. Our commitment to sustainability extends to our design process, with a focus on minimising emissions and maximising the reuse of offcuts.
Provenance: Our wood is FSC-certified, meaning that it comes from responsibly and sustainably managed forests that prioritise biodiversity, social responsibility, and economic benefit. When you choose our black walnut desk, you’re not just investing in style and quality – you’re also making a responsible choice for the environment.
Dusting: Use a soft, dry cloth to dust the surface of the table regularly to prevent dirt and dust build-up.
Cleaning: If the surface of the table needs to be cleaned, use a gentle cleaner designed for use on acrylic-coated surfaces. Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cloths as these can damage the finish on your dining table.
Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the colour of the furniture to fade over time. If possible, place the furniture away from windows or use curtains or blinds to block direct sunlight.
Moisture: Moisture can be problematic if left to linger on the tabletop. If any food or liquid gets split directly onto the surface, clean immediately.
Heat: Avoid placing hot objects, such as pots and pans, directly on the surface of the table. Use trivets or placemats to protect the surface from heat damage. When planning the location of your table, consider placing your table 1-2 meters away from a heat source such as a radiator or fireplace.
Handle With Care: Please be warned, these tables are very heavy. If you are planning to move your table, be sure to lift it rather than dragging it across the floor and make sure you have a few extra sets of hands to help. This will help to prevent scratches and other damage to the surface or floors.
Storage: If the table is going to be stored for an extended period of time, cover it with a clean, soft cloth to protect it from dust and scratches.
Shipping: Our black walnut desk comes with free delivery and installation.
Scheduling: Once your European walnut dining table build is complete, we will schedule a delivery time that is convenient for you.
Accessibility: Please ensure that the delivery location is easily accessible and that there is enough room for our delivery team to manoeuvre the table into the desired location. If there are any potential obstacles, such as stairs or tight turns, please let us know in advance so that we can prepare accordingly.
Installation: Our delivery team will be responsible for both delivering and installing your L’Atelier Mata table. They have been trained to handle heavyweight furniture with care and to ensure a safe and professional installation. The team will show you how to attach the base to the table top for future reference.
Inspection: Upon delivery and installation, please inspect the table to ensure that it meets your expectations and that there is no damage. If you notice any issues, please let us know.
Disposal of Packaging: Our delivery team will dispose of all packaging materials and clean up the area after installation is complete.
The Timber: Black Walnut Desk
American Black Walnut
We love the natural beauty of American black walnut (Juglans nigra). This timber has a warm, rich tone that ranges from medium to dark brown with subtle variations in colour. The sapwood, which is the lighter coloured outermost layer of the tree, can be creamy white or pale yellow, while the heartwood, which is the darker coloured innermost layer, can have a range of shades from reddish-brown to almost black.
American walnut has a straight, open grain pattern with occasional wavy and curly lines. It often features darker streaks and swirls, which add to its character and unique appearance. The grain may also contain knots and other natural imperfections, giving each piece of wood its own distinct personality.
We carefully source our American black walnut from the finest sustainable forests, ensuring that each of our Black Walnut Dining Tables is ethically and responsibly made. With its natural variations and unique character, no two pieces of American black walnut in our collection will be the same.
The Table Base
Flared Legs | Antique Brass
The flared legs on our black walnut desk are a great example of modern design. With a gradual narrowing towards the floor, the sleek tapering of these legs creates a sense of visual interest and intrigue.
Plated in antique brass, this finish is both striking and durable. The antique look also creates a lovely contrast with the rich black walnut slab used for the desktop, elevating the overall design.
The flared legs are expertly designed in-house to achieve a seamless aesthetic, complementing the black walnut desktop beautifully. Their unique shape also provides additional legroom, making this desk perfect for extended work sessions.
