Secretaries: On the market

Since, I have been rounding up desks for current design projects…I thought what better place than to share them here?

A few ideas for writing desks from classic to modern. What I find great about these pieces is their differences.

Desk Round Up

Top left is a French antique writing desk that I found on Ebay. A local Carpenter at the Little House of Nude furniture said he could make one to match. Below, the white Anne secretary desk from Ballard Designs, is ultra affordable and could be painted or fancied up with a new pair of knobs.

The middle column has by far the most bohemian feel. The top Flatiron desk from Restoration Hardware is a touch Spanish, one part modern and so minimal. Center stage, the new Hollywood desk from Room Service, is the epitome of retro modern cool. What I like most is the legs. To the bottom pic, a Lucite console table from Cb2 along with nesting tables could definitely double as a desk for a Guest Room anytime.

The last column is for all of you mid-century modern lovers. From the top Cb2’s Swoop Desk, Russell Pinch’s Walnut desk with a leather top, and lastly another fave by Room Service, the Palm Beach desk.

I must say the Russell Pinch desk really got my attention. After a visit to their website, I’ve been dreaming about their super fluffy comfy looking sofas pictured over there. Go have a look!

Tell me which one do you like best and why?

    Hello from Russia!
    Can I quote a post in your blog with the link to you?

    My favourite is the French style desk. It’s dark in colour and quite masculine looking in that the top where the two drawers are are square and then the bottom of the piece, the legs and the curved detail around the kneehole space – balances it out, and makes the whole piece actually appear quite pretty.
