Classic style in a desk

Tamara from Pacifica, CA– Verified Buyer

This Channing Desk is very attractive, used as a woman's writing desk, with its classic styling. The polished chrome legs, the clear acrylic knobs, the white lacquer finish -- together, it is a pretty combination! Can be used in understated interior, but we chose to use this in more of a glamorous setting -- Hollywood glam style!
