The wood’s rich grain enhanced with a gray or brown wash gives our Livingston collection a naturally weathered look that accentuates its fine classic details. The Small Desk rests on a plinth base and is detailed with molding and fluting on the posts. Pair it with other modular components in the collection to create an office or work space that is both stylish and filled with functionality.

  • Finishes are hand-applied in multiple layers and are accentuated with dark pewter (Gray Wash) or antique bronze (Brown Wash) hardware.
  • Made of kiln-dried solid meranti wood and veneer.
  • Desk features two small drawers, one large drawer and one file drawer.
  • Bottom drawer can hold legal files and is equipped with heavy-duty side-mounted glides.
  • File glides can also be removed for regular drawer storage.
  • Features artisan-crafted details such as solid wood drawer boxes crafted with English dovetail joinery.
  • Modular units can be secured together using supplied hardware to provide the look and feel of custom cabinetry.
  • Adjustable levelers help with stability on uneven surfaces.
  • Imported.
