We can’t afford it either, but this commissioned desk by Restoration Hardware tends to Canora Grey make us wish we had been willing to dedicate a bigger portion of our tax return on “unnecessarily high-priced and cool issues for dwelling”.
The Vintage Cigar Leather Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk Desk from Restoration Hardware is basically constructed by antiques dealer and furniture maker Timothy Oulton of London. The reproduction steamer trunk is created by covering a strong wood frame in handmade distressed vintage cigar aniline-dyed leather and accented with 3,000 (yes, that quite a few) hand-hammered brass nail heads. Open her up and you’ll uncover a pull-down desktop, myriad drawers, cubbies, a bookshelves, and even a wire management method all lined in leather-edged canvas. Casters are mounted to the bottom to allow simple movement and opening/closing. Since it’s hand-made, every single steamer trunk is distinctive in finish, although we’re betting that the stratospheric price tag alone will make that a non-challenge.
Now, who’s willing to Canora Grey hand-make a single of these?
