Gustavian Writing Desk
Handcrafted Wooden Writing Desk and Dressing Table
Made exclusively for French Bedroom.
Influenced by French culture and tradition, King Gustav III founded the Gustavian furniture style by amalgamating Swedish ideals with French neoclassicism.
Characterised by its mild distemper and chamfered edge, the Gustavian Dressing table reflects the craftmanship of traditional French designs whilst representing the way we live today. Long, fluted and tapered legs hold up the traditionally symmetrical body of this dressing table that is both stylish and functional.
This dressing table can also be used as a writing desk. Four A4 sized drawers are adorned with bow-design gold metal drawer pulls and surround the larger middle drawer which has a functional lock and key - and a decorative tassle - providing you with a safe space to store valuables or locking away work during the weekend, so you can double up the function of dressing table and writing desk. The hand-carved, panelled drawers feature horizontal fluting – a traditional element of Gustavian furniture design. The drawers are fitted with wooden stoppers to provide an ease of opening.
The finishing touches are what make this dressing table traditionally Gustavian. Hand-carved beading surrounds the underside of the chamfered edge, leaving no detail spared to create the perfect piece.
In traditional Gustavian style, this dressing table has been crafted from solid ash wood and finished with a mild and light distemper; over time the ash wood will weather to develop a rich patina that only the authenticity of time can evoke.
