Midcentury Mahogany Desk and Bookcase by La Permanente Mobili Cantù, 1950s

$12,401.68per set


Amazing and unique design for this Italian office set of the 1950s, composed by the executive Desk with its Bookcase, both attributed to La Permanente Mobili Cantù. The structures of both items are in mahogany veneer, finished with brass details. The side compartments of the Desk are lockable and opening the doors reveal three amazing bent plywood drawers for each ones and, under the desk top on the right side, there is surprising retractable shelf probably created to house the old fashioned phone model. Instead the Bookcase offers plenty of storage space with three removable centre shelves, two tall cabinets equipped with clothes hanger rods already prepared to implement three shelves each ones, in addition to the three lower cabinets, left and right ones lockable, even them equipped with internal shelves. Both items are in very good condition of the period as the images show, recently restored and now ready to use. Bookcase dimensions Height 63 in. (160 cm) Width 80.71 in. (205 cm) Depth 19.69 in. (50 cm) Executive desk dimensions Height 31.11 in. (79 cm) Width 72.05 in. (183 cm) Depth 28.75 in. (73 cm).
