dark-chocolate-coloured-walnut-desk Chocolate coloured walnut desk with a leather writing insert above a single drawer. This is a home office or study desk focused on luxury and elegance. From the tactile surfaces on the top, tapering down to the bottom of the gently curved legs.


There’s a brass handle detail cut into the centre of the drawer front.


The overall appearance is very simple but the finished desk is a very tactile luxury piece. The high quality goes throughout with the same high level of finish inside the drawer box.
