Functional elegance and graceful lines never go out of date, and this writing desk is a good example. It has a style that will look well in either a traditional or contemporary setting. It can be used for working with pen and paper, as we still do on ocassion, or with a laptop. And now, with wireless, one does not need to drill holes for a computer! Indeed, it will probably witness many more cycles of style and technology in years to come, and be in use for all of them.

There is a good sized pencil drawer below the spacious writing surface, and three drawers and many cubbies above. At time of this writing, I have one of these (pictured) in my showroom, built several years ago. It is made from cherry boards that were a matched set, i.e., came from a single log and kept stacked together through all the milling and drying process. The result is a uniform color and grain, which has deepened into a gorgeous rich patina over the years. I would enjoy seeing it go to a good home!

Dimensions are 40" wide x 30" deep x 42" high. Priced very resonably at $3,900.
