This is an exquisite writing desk and is comprised of teak with a fresh teak and Danish oil finish, curved sides holding a raised back shelf over the work surface, two spacious drawers under the work surface with recessed finger pulls, and fabulous straight round legs featuring wonderful knuckle details where the stretcher receives the legs. It’s a simple but quite stunning detail!! So, a fun story regarding this unique and likely one-of-a-kind piece… We spoke directly to the intriguing family that owned this beauty upon our obtaining it and they used to live in Bangkok, Thailand back in the 1960’s. He told us that his father had this writing desk and a few other pieces custom made while they lived there! It lived an incredible life with them, made a long journey to America, and now it is ready for new adventures with you and your wonderful family!! The woodgrain on the desk work surface is phenomenal and with an additional shelf and two drawers there’s plenty of space for your laptop, monitors, paperwork, and even a fabulous table lamp. Perfect in your study or den for smaller office supplies and stationery; keys, calling cards, and change; or as a catch-all in your entry! Have a newly appointed home office? This desk is just what you’ve been looking for. And it has a lovely all-over finish so it will float beautifully in any room. Its classic style will host almost any style desk chair and if you’re in need of one, we have several desk chairs listed here for sale that would pair nicely with this desk! Check them out!!
