La Permanente Mobili di Cantu Desk

$22,000Asking Price

About

Incredible desk of mahogany and teakwood with brass legs and drawer-pulls. Gently curved top surface, fluted faces, and inset center drawer. Four drawers on either side, with contoured fronts and beautifully shaped, paneled backs. La Permanente Mobili di Cantu is a decades-old association representing the very best of Cantu's custom cabinet and furniture makers. Pieces were submitted to the organization and once accepted, the designs were no longer attributed to the makers; they were instead credited to and sold through the association, effectively elevating their status.
