AR­CHI­TECT Rob Mills (pic­tured with Belle in­te­rior de­sign edi­tor Lucy Mccabe) says, “You can buy a be­spoke desk made by one of the world’s lead­ing fur­ni­ture com­pa­nies, one that’s hand­crafted by a lo­cal sup­plier, or de­sign a desk to fit with the ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior of your home.

“In my case, we built a new home and de­signed ev­ery­thing in a holis­tic way – we hand-picked the fur­ni­ture to suit the func­tion and style of the house and our life­style.

“We en­vis­age our study as a place of learn­ing for our chil­dren. Our desk was de­signed by us and hand­crafted by An­drew Lowe (sold through Hub) as a unique, mul­ti­pur­pose piece. The place­ment of the legs al­lows three peo­ple to sit side-by-side and so we line up as a family with our lap­tops and books. And we love to en­ter­tain, so the desk was cre­ated in the same pro­por­tion and style as our din­ing ta­ble – we put the desk in the din­ing room and can gather 18 peo­ple to­gether.” rob­
