Louis XVI Style Desk by John Vesey

About the Item

"A status item in many of the best dressed rooms these days is at least one piece of furniture by John Vesey” wrote the newspaper fashion columnist Eugenia Sheppard in May 1968. Owned by tastemakers ranging from Nelson Rocke­feller to the Duchess of Windsor, Vesey’s chairs, sofas, tables, desks, and lamps, mostly crafted of metal, displayed clean lines and faultless proportions and were prominently featured in design publications and newspapers throughout the 1950s and ’60s. Today Vesey’s furniture is a cynosure among collectors of mid-twentieth-century design...." Modern Magazine 2011 This stunning three drawer stainless steel, brass and black tooled leather top Louis XVI style desk is an iconic piece of American furniture that will forever be in fashion.
