Creating the Perfect Work From Home Office featuring Jennifer Callahan

     
Over the past year, we have all learned that working from home without a designated work station space, can leave you feeling drained and uninspired. Which is why we decided to assist Jennifer Callahan of Simply Spaced in creating her own personalized and minimal WFH setup.
       
Featuring our Teak wood Ciao + Reef Desk with Drawer Space, a natural leather Grasshopper dining chair, along with some matching Teak wood Ciao shelves, and along her designer, Dany of Spatial Solutions, we were able to create a one of a kind space that fit her LA home studio perfectly. 
 
   
"Dany suggested From the Source, known for their sustainably sourced hardwood furniture. I wanted the desk to be high quality, eco-friendly, and well-made and was happy to find out that they create small-batch, handcrafted furniture with reclaimed materials." - Jennifer Callahan

Be sure to check out Jennifer's full article My Minimal WFH Desk Setup on her lifestyle blog, Love Lulu.

Products We Love: The Perch Stool

 

Our most iconic piece to date, the Perch stool is organic and sleek, and features a solid Teak root seat. Each seat is hand carved and completely unique from one another due to the marbling in the grain of salvaged Teak root. Choose from a variety of frame materials, including iron with a clear powder coat or brushed stainless steel.

 

 

Hand Carved + Sustainably Sourced 


The sourcing of our teak root seats begins at the Indonesian Teak tree farms, which are run by the Indonesian government. They have created a program that allows the villagers to come in and dig up the Teak trees' roots so that they can create products and sell to help subsidize income for the community. They create items like our Teak root ball sculptures and Erosion bowls.

Over the years, we've been working with these villagers to create the perfect hand carved Teak root seat which has now become essential to our signature Perch stool, as well as essential to the village as a steady flow of income.
