Hudgens’ Desk

Mappa burl veneers, maple, ebony, brass, leather, gold leaf, aniline dyes;
72"l x 30"w x 42"h

I designed this piece with DC interior designer Sally Gresham. There was a lot of careful handwork involved in the shimmering veneer, the gilded carvings, the ebony string inlay, and the brass and maple lyre-shaped legs. And there was engineering too: we designed and fabricated a special brass mechanism to support the desk surface at different angles. In all, this was a tremendously satisfying work.
