A perennial show-stopper for Hardwood Artisans since its origination, the Glasgow desk was inspired by the work of not the American, but the Scottish Arts and Crafts movement. In the 1880s and 90s, 30 years after William Morris had established his shop in London, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and four other artisans established what came to be known worldwide as the “Glasgow Style”. With its sinuous curves and more elaborate decorative motifs, the Glasgow Style distinguished itself from William Morris’s more restrained take on Arts and Crafts, yet maintained the exacting hand-made construction.
Hardwood Artisans’ homage to the Glasgow Style, the Glasgow Desk and an accompanying Glasgow Chair takes you back to the parlor culture of late-Victorian Scotland. Equally fitting in an office or multi-functional living room, this is one desk you’ll want to show off rather than hide away.
