Novelist's Desk

New York, USA

Designed as a one-of-a-kind desk for a Novelist’s sitting room within the world’s tallest residential tower in New York, USA.

The brief for the desk was to create a luxurious, sculptural, feminine and timeless design that reflects the contemporary architecture of New York.

The design includes data, power and USB sockets and ample storage for collections of pens, watches and correspondence stationery. Rare and highly figured English rippled sycamore from England, mirror-polished nickel and mother-of-pearl add a sense of history and glamour.

The desk has a personal monogram inscription and is named and dated, like all Silverlining furniture, with Sterling Silver hallmarks recording the year of manufacture.

It is not enough to create furniture that is functionally, aesthetically and emotionally pleasing - we also need to provide joy and excitement throughout the commissioning journey
