Early life and education

While the company developed its mahogany desks in collaboration with engineers in Nicaragua, all other products are sourced from makers with whom the company has formed distribution partnerships. Perch’s desks are priced between $750 and $1,250, depending on size.

Since its inception in 2015, Perch has gained recognition from publications such as Vanity Fair, Business Insider, Architectural Digest, and Forbes.
