The City Desk by Susana Martinez Juxtaposes Natural and Industrial

The City Desk by Susana Martinez is the sort of piece that you certainly would not want to push up against a wall. This workstation has been designed to sit someplace in the middle of a room, providing its very own privacy partition and a beautiful two-faced design.

Ideally, one might approach this furnishing from the rear so that its gorgeous wooden panel is in full view. This expansive piece seems to have been sliced from the core of a very old tree trunk, maintaining uneven edges and exposing its natural wood grain patterns and varying timber tones.

But counterbalancing this organic feature of the City Desk is an industrial opposite side. This an extruded writing surface of lacquered metal, supported by a frames and enhanced with a shelf, a cubby and a built-in floor lamp. Stats for Bark-Backed Escritoires Trending: Older & Mild
