Reader, ernesthon, submitted his desk. This is just beautiful mid-century example of an elegant, minimal workspace.
The desk was custom made with American Black Walnut in San Francisco. The chair is vintage teak from Norway. The table lamp is also vintage; I replaced the orignal paper shade with gold-interior black fabric. The other task lamp is from IKEA!
And a wonderful interpretation of what mid-century means to him:
I’ve only recently become enamored with this style, which is recently enjoying a resurgence in popularity both in decor and in architecture. To me, mid-century design represents the optimism of society during that era - the great expansion of the middle class and the realization of the “American Dream”.
