A 1930s Desk in the manner of Pierre Legrain

An Important 1930s French Teak Desk, attributed to Pierre Legrain. Of striking Cubist Design and constructed in solid Teak, this desk is outstanding in terms of visual design and quality craftsmanship. Legrain was a user of exotic timbers within his designs and this desk is unusually constructed in solid Teak with fitted drawers (also with solid Teak linings). The Frieze has three deep and overstated mouldings which are fitted with concealed drawers and blind cupboards below. The whole desk rests upon recessed blocks, giving a 'floating' look. The strong cubist nature of the piece, along with it's original 'chocolate' colour on wide grained timber are all nods towards Legrain.

I have a passion for interior furnishings spanning the centuries from the C17th to the present day and I believe that they can combine to create modern interiors with flair and individuality. Using core principals of simplicity, style, elegance and quirky fun, I source furnishings to blend with and bring soul to a lifeless modern interior or take the stuffiness out of a more traditional furnishings scheme.

Clients are welcome to visit my large showroom at Gilsthwaite Lane, Kirkhammerton, York YO26 8DS.  Open Monday-Saturday, 9.30am-3pm. Other times by appointment.
