Risom Desk

Risom Desk

Just a reminder that some of the spring sales are ending tomorrow. And, if you have some money to spend, you can save some money by spending a little time perusing the items on sale… such as the petite Risom Desk, originally designed in 1968 by Jens Risom for his home in New Canaan, Connecticut. Meant more for use as a writing surface than a computer station, it suits a simpler lifestyle with just one drawer with a removable walnut tray for desk supplies. Perhaps the pared down storage will encourage you to tailor your office supplies down to only the most necessary?

reg. $1,485.00 sale: $1,262.25

Dimensions: 42″w x 28″h x 22″d
Made in U.S.A.
Materials: Solid North American walnut; black leather with Crypton® protective finish.

This small-space solution “is really a writing surface,” says Risom. “Let’s just call it a ‘desk’ in quotations.” Crafted of solid American walnut and black leather, “it’s a handsome piece of decoration at which you sit, at which you study, at which you read books… if people do that any more.” -DWR
