French Style Writing Desk

With over 300 hours of labor, this French Insprired Writing Desk was a journey of time, patience and fine detailed work. Our lovely client was inspired by a similar desk at The Lourve and wanted to emulate the fine work, and all the fine details that encapsulate this wonderful writing desk.

A rich warm timber was needed to enhance the soft design of the desk whilst blending in with the existing décor so Qld Maple was used for these beautiful qualities

The design of the desk evolved after extensive collaboration with the client and included such wonderful features such as;

handcrafted dovetailed drawers ,

Custom Brass beading , to highlight  the panels and brass  fretwork around the marble to embellish the design

Roll top curved timber panel door

Internal locking doors, to ensure individual compartments could be closed for privacy

The style was to emulate Louis XV opulent, yet discreet,

Marble top in keeping with the style....

Once the writing desk was made it was then hand  polished and rubbed back to a 60% gloss to enhance its patina


Designed and crafted by Bywater Design




Individual Locking compartments, perfect for writing and storing treasures.


Traditional Techniques blending with a timeless design


The icing on the cake.  Breccia Marble to enhance the curvaceous yet sleek design of the French writing desk
