We work a lot with bespoke furniture, one of items that are made exactly to our specifications, which can often be costly but is always an investment for our clients (read here how bespoke wardrobes are great for busy people) however we don’t very often spend this kind of money on an individual piece of stand alone furniture.
From the designers: This sculptural desk and chair set is not only intriguing but also quite clever in design. This desk has many functional compartments: three lower drawers that pivot toward the seated user; four smaller, irregularly shaped drawers; two compartments and a secret drawer, all disguised behind the carving above the desk top.
They are bespoke items and usually take four months to hand craft. I would love to be able to see how this beautiful piece looks and feels in the flesh. It can be made up in a variety of wood finishes and I am sure it would look just as stunning in most of them.
