A cherry wood desk is truly a furniture piece of immense beauty due to the properties possessed by cherry wood. Cherry wood, gotten from the cherry tree, has a very rich dark tone which lends a cherry desk its elegance. Additionally, cherry wood is a type of hard wood and these types of woods are known for their strength. If you have plenty of space or small space and want to fill it with practical, elegant furniture, a desk in cherry wood might suit you. Most cherry wood desks of this type also have matching furniture available to fill the whole room, from a hutch and filing cabinet to a solid wood bookshelf.
When you shop for a new cherry wood desk, you will likely come across a range of prices, and some might seem too good to be true. This is due to the existence of cherry wood veneer, which is much cheaper than solid wood but is also less durable. If you want the elegance and high shine of cherry wood on a budget, a veneer could be your best bet. If you prefer longer lasting furniture and do not mind spending more on it, a solid cherry wood desk is for you.
