Description

This incredibly stunning desk is a case study in elegant Danish design and cabinetry. The design takes cues from celebrated Danish designer Ole Wanscher and his work for master cabinet maker AJ Iversen in the late 1940s. It features classical elements in the handles but is thoroughly modern in it's outlook and form.

The desk is crafted from highly figured walnut with lavish rosewood detailing. The desk top is especially memorable for its four-way book matched burl walnut detailing which showcases the level of craftsmanship found throughout the piece. A suite of drawers offer generous storage and are all crafted with dovetail joints to the front and rear. It's finished on both sides with inset storage and display to the rear.

This is the perfect desk for either the work or home office. Enjoy Danish design at its finest.
