Handmade writing desk and Cabinet Futari made in ash and pear wood
In this handmade writing desk nothing is compromised. We have used the finest european ash and pear, with details in ebony. The back piece of the cabinet is decorated with a handwoven silk fabric, designed to match the grain of the ash wood.
We designed the desk to be used by two people. Hence there is a space for computer work and storage on one side of the desk and there is two drawers. The side consoles are exchangeable so that the desk can be placed in any corner, leaving an open space for computer work on the side.
