$1,900

About

This lovely little Mid-Century Modern industrial desk is by renowned French designer Raymond Loewy and manufactured by Brunswick of Chicago in the 1950s. A collectors piece that would work great in an office, kids room, home office or any design-aficionado room. Signed underneath with Brunswick stamp. This quality utilitarian desk features an exposed metal frame with a right side X-shaped leg, original Formica top, a center pull out drawer and a storage cabinet on the left side with two pull out drawers, one being a lockable file drawer (needs to be rekeyed). This 1950s industrial steel desk by Raymond Loewy for Brunswick of Chicago would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: H 28.5" x W 48" x D 30" CONDITION: Good vintage condition with moderate wear appropriate to age and use. This desk does not have the optional back panel perforated metal screen or the key for the lockable cabinets, however the lock can be rekeyed upon request. Ready for immediate use.
