The Value of Caretta Workspace - Caretta Workspace

The Value of Caretta Workspace

February 6, 2017

At Caretta, we strive to design and manufacture the highest quality, most functional and attractive desks, tables, bookshelves, and other furniture available for office and home. We are designers, craftsmen, engineers, and creatives that are passionate about what we do. Our products feature the best American-grown solid cherry, walnut, and ash hardwoods that highlight the wood’s truly unique grain patterns. Our designs conceal cables and wires in cable trays and passageways that are cleverly hidden throughout our products. We have customers all over North America that rave about the beauty, quality, and functionality of their Caretta furniture. We also have a strong commitment to give back to our community and planet. We only use wood sourced from sustainably managed forests and eco-friendly finishes. Locally, we support many great programs to give back to the community in which we live and work.

As you shop around for a new desk or table, consider the following factors to ensure that you are getting the best quality desk!

Solid Hardwood

One of the most distinguishing aspects of a Caretta Workspace desk is the solid hardwood.  When you go to a furniture store and you see the fine wood furniture, it is almost expected that it is thin veneer covering some sort of manufactured mystery wood. Not here! Not only do we only use solid wood for our desk and table tops, much of it is over 2” thick, and all of it has been hand-selected for its unique grain patterns.

Our wood is harvested and milled just down the road in southern Ohio, where some of the finest hardwood trees on the planet grow. This is the same wood that is shipped to far-off places in Europe and Asia, but we happen to get the top of the stack!

The wood is also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which means the wood is taken from forests that are responsibly managed.

Integrated Power Supply and Cable Management System

Our cable and power management system is thoughtfully and purposely integrated into the design of our desks.  There is a large metal cable tray that is embedded onto the structure of the desk, so all of your wires are neatly hidden away. Attached to the cable tray, out of sight from the rest of the world, is a large surge suppressing power strip. The outlets are even positioned wide enough so plugs don’t interfere with each other.

Consider the competition. If there is cable management, it is most likely an afterthought. How are you supposed to wire everything through a 1” lamp grommet? Is a stick-on shelf really going to hold all of your wires? Is it safe to have power strips laying at your feet? You don’t have to answer these questions. Just get the Caretta desk!

American-Made Product

All of the products made by Caretta Workspace are all designed, manufactured and assembled in the United States from our headquarters in central Ohio. This is something that most desk and furniture companies outsource in order to keep profits up and costs low, but most of the time the quality of the product suffers because of that.

“Our furniture is a combination of the latest technology and handcrafted manufacturing techniques with precision machinery,” Larry Tracewell, Owner of Caretta Workspace, said. “America was built on the shoulders of craftsmanship and innovation. People take pride in working in designing, manufacturing and producing the highest quality product in the market.”

Caretta Workspace Gives Back

Our products are extremely durable and are meant to last a very long time, just like our namesake, the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, or better known in the scientific world as Caretta Caretta.

In honor of this beautiful animal, every time a customer buys a desk from Caretta Workspace, part of the cost is donated to the Save The Sea Turtle Fund at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. That donation helps to support conservation efforts all over the world. In 2016, Caretta Workspace’s our customers’ donation topped $10,000!
