 Vintage desk

The desks were mainly made in the middle of the last century from teak or rosewood veneer (also known as palisander). Rosewood is a protected wood type. This means that you can only buy vintage desks with this expressive durable wood type. Interested in a rosewood desk or do you want to know which type of wood suits you best? Read here all about the different types of wood used in Danish design. 

Scandinavian design desk

Many vintage design desks are made as freestanding desks, so that it can be a centerpiece in your living room or office. We sell a variety of genuine Scandinavian designs such as classic desks by Nanna Ditzel and Arne Vodder, but also from lesser known or unknown designers. A desk naturally needs a matching vintage office chair. Find matching mid century modern office furniture chairs here.

Design table?

Desks are not only nice when you work a lot from home, but they also bring peace to your home. They offer a permanent place to put things in order, a place where you have the space and - unlike the dining table - you don't have to clean up before dinner time.
