The Art Deco era co-incided with the discovery of and massive public interest in the new Egyptian tomb discoveries, which sparked a craze for all things Egyptian. Many design elements of the Egyptian style influenced and complemented the emergent Art Deco style, so it was natural that many Egyptian style motifs would be incorporated into everything from buildings to furniture and accessories. This new desk design are a new take on Ancient Egyptian furniture with an Art Deco sensibility about them. The overall shape uses typical Egyptian sloped sides, seen on everything from buildings to furniture, but we inverted the usual sloped shape, it looks still very typically Egyptian in style and fits in with the Cubist shapes of the Deco period. The black base colour gives it a dramatic look, with a decorative painting of the winged Goddess the dominant design, surrounded by heiroglyphs for a sophisticated overall look. The designs are painted on both outside base ends, but we could add further decoration to the inside faces as well, although they are seen less. The support bases can be made a bit narrower or wider, as can the top - as usual we can adapt the dimensions, designs and colours as required. The tops shown are limestone, the classic Egytian stone, or a dark granite, but could equally be another stone, wood, glass, Corian, laminate, etc.. The whole piece can be left newly painted or distressed as you prefer. Made to order, we don't disclose sizes or prices until we've agreed a spec with a customer.
The desk top offers plenty of work space, and depending on the depth you want this made to, it could even be used for sitters on both sides. We could also add shallow height drawers under the worktop if you want. The dimensions of such pieces, as they are made bespoke, can be changed to your preferred sizes. This would be shipped flat and would require minimal home assembly. Below is shown a dining table version of this desk, with a limestone top - more of these tables are shown in the tables section. We don't disclose dimensions, further details or prices until we've agreed a spec. with a customer.
