Made from macassar ebony, this elegant writing desk features marquetry of a wandering vine over a gold trellis. The marquetry work adorns the fronts of three dovetailed drawers. Two pullouts add convenient extra space when needed, and repeat the wandering vine theme.
I chose macassar ebony as the primary wood for its rich colors. Careful grain matching provides a symmetry in this piece that must be seen to be appreciated. Gentle curves down the side of each leg terminate in solid brass feet. It’s a luxurious piece that I am proud to have designed and made.
