About

This handsome Demilune desk was originally intended as a secretary's desk, used to greet visitors in a reception area. A version of this desk was used in the "House of the Future," part of the 1939 World's Fair. Realized in book-matched burled Carpathian elm with black lacquer accents throughout, this is truly a stunning example of streamlined Art Deco design in America at its finest. It features three lacquered shelves in front. In the back, where one is intended to sit, is a central slide drawer, as well as three side-hinged pull-out drawers on each side, all fitted with black painted bronze circular pulls. With its clean lines and luxurious materials, this show stopping piece would be a winning addition to practically any style of interior from Classic Art Deco to contemporary, especially in the middle of a room where it can be admired from all sides. Mint restored condition.
