moreRARE, absolutely gorgeous Rosewood and chrome floating executive desk with leather handles. Attributed to George Nelson for Herman Miller but similar in style to desks by Knoll and notable Danish designers. This piece is a Mid Century masterpiece. The desk features a beautiful rosewood top and two black drawered units each with 4 rosewood front drawers, the 8 drawers have massive leather handles. This is all floating on a square, tubular, chrome frame. It was the only piece we were lucky enough to score from a true 1960's time capsule of an estate sale where 90% of the estate was Herman Miller and we were told by the owner's son that this desk was no exception. Although not tagged, whoever the manufacturer, this is a masterfully crafted, beautiful piece of furniture history.
The desk is in overall excellent vintage condition. The rosewood is beautiful and still rich in color with beautifully visible grain. The leather handles are solid but do show some age in the form of minor surface cracking but are completely usable for many more decades (see picture below). The tops of the floating boxes have some rather insignificant ripples in the wood, which are typically consistent with dry conditions, however there are no cracks or missing veneer and the waves can only really be seen when looking up close and under the desk top directly. **what appears to be inconsistency in the finish on the top is just a glare from lighting. less
