Compared to the bolder red colour of Mahogany desks, antique and vintage Walnut desks go a softer shade of Chestnut brown giving them a look of quiet quality. It complements fine details such as carvings, architectural elements and detailed Ormolu castings. Stylistically European Walnut Desks excelled in these finer luxury details more than Antique English Walnut desks which tended to appear humbler or traditional in form and finish. Just like Mahogany and Oak, all manner of desks from simple Writing desks to fancy Pedestal desks were created in Walnut and remain well designed and durable to this day. By the Art Deco Period Burr Walnut became all the rage and with their sleek sweeping lines Walnut desks became the symbol for Modernity and Style. Today our love for Walnut desks has not diminished meaning there are plenty of examples to choose from.
At LoveAntiques we have an impressive selection of Antique Walnut Desks for Sale as well as Vintage Walnut Desks as well.
