Hand-crafted from fine mahogany, this intriguing Art Deco Period Modern Partner's Desk is the perfect choice for the home office!  Design offers copious storage accessible from both sides, and the original chromed pull knobs add what was considered at the time a "space-age" touch.

Art Deco design is a modern re-interpretation of classicism: pieces in this style are symmetrical, rectilinear and clean-lined. Art Deco furniture carving and ornament is relatively subdued; the look is pared-down and streamlined; wood is detailed with refined geometric shapes — spheres, trapezoids, chevrons. Works in the Art Deco style mainly achieve visual delight via their rich and exotic materials.

The term Art Deco is derived from the name of the 1925 Paris exhibition that brought the style to worldwide attention.

Circa 1930s
