Mid Century Modern Compartment Desk Faux Wood Laminate Chrome Aluminum


SKU 414-CSG-061 Category

Awesome mid-century modern compartment desk in faux wood laminate, chrome tube, and cast aluminum. This desk is in wonderful vintage condition. The laminate is perfect as is the painted aluminum feet; however, the chrome tube had quite a bit of rust which we have eliminated but you can still see a little pitting. It retains the original “hang tag” from when it was for sale new by Modern Living and the original slide-in calendar from 1967-68. Circa 1967.

What an incredible piece of furniture but try as we might we cannot determine its maker. It has attributes of the Action Office desk designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller. It also looks similar to a Compartment desk by Lane. And the materials used, and the leg style are almost surely Chromcraft. Plus, there is a hang tag with the name Modern Living. But we have yet been able to find one like it. No matter! It is fabulous and in extremely great original condition. The cabinet is made up of faux wood laminate with a full-length drawer in the front and a flip-up door on the back of the top surface that exposes a compartment for hanging file folders. On the underside of the flip-up door, which makes it the part facing you as you sit at the desk, is a slide-in plastic office helper consisting of a calendar dated 1967-68, a place to inventory the folders in the files below, and a to-do list plus more. The cabinet is supported by a pair of column legs of chromed steel tubes with cast aluminum faux woodgrain and painted black bi-pod legs or feet. A wonderful mid-century modern desk that will work perfectly with your laptop. You need to make it yours.
