The simplicity of the design, richness of the materials, and functionality of the piece made me want to give this one two thumbs up.

3D Visualization

From the looks of the photo I think the desk is veneered in rosewood, and its drawers and pulls had chrome plating for decoration. Here is my 3D model of the desk.

I added some context: wooden paneling for walls, rich parquetry flooring, a chrome lamp, and a framed photo.

The photo, by the way, is one I took of the inside of the lobby of the Chrysler Building in New York.

Get the Look

I couldn’t find the desk above from Canonbury Antiques, but they do have this other stunning Art Deco Vintage Desk in Rosewood for sale as of this writing.

The rosewood is just gorgeous, and the simple design is enhanced by the black ebonized trim. The half-star inlay on top is a lovely touch. There is a French Art Deco feel to this desk, with the gentle curve of the legs. Love it!

    • Happy New Year to you, too, Krissie! Hope this year will be a great one.

      Yes, let’s study! πŸ˜‰ Being this old doesn’t mean we can now stop studying. Seems like the old brain here no longer has any sponge-like quality, though!

    Takahiro Y – I have no idea how long it takes to creat a thing like this. I bet it takes longer than a click. Looking forward to your works! ζ˜Žγ‘γΎγ—γ¦γŠγ‚γ§γ¨γ†γ”γ–γ„γΎγ™οΌ

    Michael W – I need to show this to my daughter. She’s been playing with Google’s Sketchup for a while. She started off creating simple houses, then started playing more with odd shaped windows for her houses. A couple days ago she designed in it what she calls her personal crest in 3D.

    Amazing work.

    Jeff M – I’m so glad you made it +Beverly Claire Kaiya ! I’m glad you also include the looks and sounds so complex…
