I always have a hard time finding good looking desk props that are clean, simple, and functional. I always run into the problem of only having the "what's in right now" option--well, I don't always want to use orange croc printed leather for a client--So, I have created my own. Problem solved. Oak or walnut footings with parchment or goatskin uppers. Perfection.
One cup for pencils, one tray for all the paperwork most of us never get to, and an ink blotter--you know for doodling and such.An addition to our armoire series coming soon to Duhon and Richardson, Plaster "antler" handles that will age and wear with time--the base will have an option of being leather wrapped or have a linen box-pleat skirt.
If it were up to me--I would have an entire house of dressers and armoires. Who says you have to have everything built-in? You pay all of this money to builders for labor and supplies to create closets and cabinetry, and you can't take them with you. WHO MADE UP THESE RULES?
