Finally! A Desk!

For a good week or so, I searched and searched for an ideal desk for my office. (which is still under major renovation) Something that wasn't $3,000, yet was very chic. A desk I had to have. Something I loved. I was having little luck and feeling increasingly anxious. While driving through an area of the city that sells exceptional vintage pieces, I came across the most beautiful white tulip table sitting outside of a great little shop. Since I was about 16, I have admired them; Even tore out magazine pics and ads that I loved, featuring different tulip tables. As my Mom pointed out, why do I need to search for a desk? Why not work at a table that I have always loved and found inspirational? I bought that beautiful table (for a fraction of the original) and it proudly stands in the center of my office, with a glistening crystal chandelier above it...I'm so excited about it! It's beautiful and my inspiration—even if the rest of the space is in chaos...

Now that I am settled with a "desk", I'm just wondering about chairs.I'm thinking of purchasing this one in black, but I'm not 100% certain. To coordinate the look, the two other gray desks could be paired with the white version of this chair. Do you have any suggestions? Something comfortable to sit on yet works well with this table? /image 01 link/image 02 link/ image 03 link/image 04 link/image 05 link/image 06 link/


  1. love the tulip table. seems u would like a chair with a back & wheels, are u open to patterns? let me see if i can find something...

  2. found these at allmodern but they may be way too high



    not sure if ur into banker's chairs, this one has padding ( mine at work is all wood & it's hard on the buttocks!)


    i thought this one looked good:


  3. Thanks so much Maureen! I love these chairs - beautiful designs / I think the second one is my favorite as the shape is so pretty!

  4. finally a desk! I like the tulip table with the wood top...and the pendant lights in the first photo...have fun working at your new desk

  5. What a cool idea!! I can't wait to see the after pics of your 'deskscape'. Ohhhh... I LOVE those tulip chairs and that Cherner armchair in the pics. That's beside the point, you are looking for a task chair. I, too, was trying to decide which task chair to choose. I was going back and forth between the Jake Chair at Room and Board or the Eames Management Chair (DWR). I went the latter. I was also considering the Emeco-Nine-0 chair that Maureen mentioned. And, love the Knoll chair she referenced. I think that is my fave for the tulip table, as well. Whatever you choose, I know it will be PERFECT.

  6. I can't wait to see ur cute office in all its magnificent glory! the sarah and mommy klassen have impeccable taste! tehehe
