The Brontë writing desk was designed and made for a writer and historian who wanted an elegant, quiet space to pen her thoughts. The design pays homage to tables of the past – from Georgian drawing room furniture, to the timeless simplicity of the Shakers and the furniture of Jean Michel Frank from the 1920’s and‘30’s. Sometimes the right design is not all about the new, but rather taking an archetypal design and making it fresh through its proportions, choice of materials and thoughtful details. The rich dark walnut is set off by the teal coloured desktop lino and brushed brass key. The key was cast specially for the desk.
