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”.
Mid-Century desk with funky chair.
Nothing like a family piece that can get handed down and used by future generations.
The desk is an authentic a mid-century modern Danish desk I inherited from my grandpa. I donated my old computer chair as it was too wide for my new desk causing me to always hit my knees against the edge of the desk. I waited for the Herman Miller sale last November and got a white Eames Molded Plastic Chair. Not only does it fit perfectly under my desk, but it’s super comfy for my back. I also got a nice sheepskin cover from HomeGoods to drape over it during the winter.The three Star Wars posters are from ReStyleshop by handz on Etsy.
Workspace of Jay Fielden, editor in chief of Town & Country magazine. His family had to rebuilt their mid-century modern home after it was destroyed by fire.
Jesse Carrier described Mr. Fielden as “a frustrated set designer.” He went on: “When you look at his office, it’s like a backdrop for Ernest Hemingway.” Mr. Fielden found the antelope head at a local antiques store. The parsons desk was bought with the house, and survived the fire. The rug is new, from Ralph Lauren Home.

An iron lace confection in stately grounds. High Victorian decoration meets eames chairs. At the rear a modern extension of metal and glass, timber and marble. Mid century classics and sleek lines.
Great minimal midcentury desk.
