A writing bureau of this quality would undoubtedly come from Copenhagen. It would have been a central piece of furniture and certainly one of the more expensive pieces in a house. We are very much taken by the understated architectural statement the piece makes. Using a desk like this in modern interior offers height in a room but also creates warmth with its rich mahogany and fruitwood inlays.
Due to its clean lines this piece could be mixed with a great variety of other periods of furniture and artwork.
Quite a pleasant place to write a letter or set up your laptop!
