Steampunk Luggage Bureaus
Richard's Desk by Restoration Hardware Contemporizes Victorian Look

By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) Dec 13, 11

If you had this one-of-a-kind Richard’s Desk inside your home office, not only would you be able to get your work done, but you’d have the most stylish work area ever.

Looking somewhere between a chest of drawers and a steampunk invention, Richard’s Desk was crafted by the fine folk at Restoration Hardware, who carefully aged the piece to give it that worn out, well-travelled look that’s not present in new furniture.

Those curious about Richard’s Desk’s peculiar name will be glad to know that Restoration Hardware provides a story detailing its origin. Apparently, the inspiration for this peculiar bureau was a canvas-clad steamer trunk which belonged to a man named Tom Richards, as identified by a brass plate mounted on the top of the trunk’s latch. It’s safe to assume Richards was a man of refined taste.
