Cherry is a rich and beautiful wood often used in both traditional and transitional furniture styles. Cherry lends itself especially well to french country, Victorian and Queen Ann style furniture, although almost any style piece can be made in a cherry wood and be enriched because of the beauty of the wood grain. Cherry is often also inlaid with other wood, especially along the top of the desk, to create interesting and intricate pieces of furniture. When you are buying a cherry desk, you should be aware that it will usually be more costly than a wood or pine desk because it carries more of a premium as far as wood species. You should also carefully consider the features and options you are looking for when making your purchase, to ensure your investment in a wise one.
