We just brought this desk into the 1stdibs showroom and think the impact it makes speaks for itself. The restorer, who just cleaned and French polished it, couldn’t contain his enthusiasm while working on the piece. He expressed his pleasure in polishing a piece like this that really brings the flamed birch out as well as the contrast between the fruitwood inlays against the rich rosewood background.
The desk is designed by one of Sweden's greatest “Grace Period” architect/designers – Carl Malmsten. The stamps and metal tags indicate it was produced by SMF. Read more about Carl Malmsten here.
