The Tangletree Desk and The Leaning Shelves of Gateshead

Posted on September 26, 2012 by Sam Mills

Much liking a new design by Jeremy Pearce, named - somewhat tongue-in-cheek, The Leaning Shelves of Gateshead (which is where the company’s workshops are located) Steve Storey, Design Director of Tangletree Interiors designed a desk to compliment it and ordered one for his showroom in Rutherford Street.


While making Steve's desk (in walnut) Newcastle Furniture made an identical one for their own showroom in oak and, as it was well received, added it to their range of freestanding furniture.


A simple and elegant piece with tapered and angled legs that reference furniture designs of the 60s, this desk also works very well as a bedroom dressing table. As a desk, the simple cable management arrangement allows wiring to reach the desktop via a route behind the wide shallow drawer in a tidy fashion.

The desk and leaning shelves are available in maple, oak, walnut and a selection of paint finishes.  See the online shop pages on Newcastle Furniture’s web site for more information and dimensions.
