For the Desk Set
Finding the perfect pastime partner.
A DESK MAY APPEAR to be just a tabletop resting on a set of legs, but look closer and you’ll see a world of history represented in its design. It was the desk, after all, that supported the reading, writing and calculations of the earliest generations of schoolchildren. These functional pieces of furniture have been carried into battles and sailed the seven seas and one of them is, unequivocally, the single most important piece of furniture in the Oval Office. At their core, though, desks are personal spaces — the ultimate spot to pen a love note, plan a party or compose a letter.
