20 Best Reclaimed Wood Desks & Salvaged Wood Work Desks

20 Best Reclaimed Wood Desks & Salvaged Wood Work Desks

A curated list of some of the best reclaimed wood desks & salvaged wood work desks for the home & office, handmade of all natural cedar, teak wood & more.

Reclaimed and salvaged wood furniture gives new life to old wood. In this very way, reclaimed and salvaged wood furniture and decor is not only aesthetically pleasing — containing a variety of natural wood knots and grains — but it’s also the sustainable alternative. If you’re new to reclaimed versus salvaged wood construction, the former is defined by using wood from old or obsolete homes, offices, barns, dwellings, etc., while the latter is defined by wood that has been rescued or repurposed from demolitions, lumber farms, or from driftwood found at the bottom of large bodies of water. Home and office desks made from reclaimed wood — in our opinion — are beautiful pieces of craftsmanship. If you’re truly interested in bringing one into your home, we recommend looking for quality pieces, hand-crafted from reclaimed pine or oak that features natural lacquers. We were able to find a hearty handful that fit the bill below.

Hand-Crafted, Lassi Global Bazaar Sculptural Reclaimed Wood Metal Desk, Constructed from Sculpted Reclaimed Fir Wood and Metal.
By: Kathy Kuo Home

Editor's Note

This is truly a one of a kind desk. This, almost art-worthy, desk is made with repurposed fir wood — and is sculpted into a series of steps, evoking a canyon-like or almost waterfall-esque look and feel. Asymmetrical and architectural, the reclaimed wood is supported by straight dark metal on the opposite side of the desk.
