Despite the fact that the tabletop of the Maya Desk by James Melia is actually made of a synthetic material, it's lovely to see the way that it indents subtly in the manner of knotted wood. Gorgeous and rich ash, white oak and black walnut are the options for the assembly of the workstation's frame, whittling a winsome image that expresses the beauty of natural and artificial creations at once.

Tapering legs and a curving timber surface reference the organic rounding forms of the tree-derived material. A convenient drawer and two drop-down compartments have been worked into the Dare Studio escritoire for a nearly seamless treatment of the lumber. The sculptural Corian top is what brings a quirkiness to the impeccably crafted Maya Desk by James Melia.
