Antique Bargain Brocante of the Week ~ Antique French Writing Desk

Antique French EngravingThe antique writing desk for most of its time was a place of reflection, a space where one could pen long, heartfelt letters to a dear friend. Today we mostly use this type of antique furniture for laptops, quick meals, and as side tables.

In the case of this antique hand-carved desk, you can do all those things while sitting at a beautifully painted patina finish top, enjoying the history of the past and versatility of the present. What makes this lovely desk even sweeter is its Bargain Brocante price!

Antique of the Week ~ Antique Writing Desk

Antique French EngravingAntique writing tables make great occasional tables and desks for our laptops and will fit even in the smallest vignettes with ease!  The setting below looks handsome in its cozy space which has been layered with the lavish design textured patina of the Renaissance Revival style.  I really love the weathered fabric we sometimes find on antique chairs like these.  This is an ideal example of modern necessities combined with antique sensibilities ~ perfect for today’s Renaissance man or woman!
