Elegant French Art Deco Desk and Chair


This lovely desk appears to be the design of Maurice Dufrenes, while the director of La Maitrise. The furniture was sold through Lafayette stores of Paris in the 1930s. The form is quite modern for the times, with tasteful stepped edges and tapering legs. A repeated floral carving appears on both front and rear of the desk, as well as the chair back. The scale is perfect for a medium sized office. The desk is larger than most letter writing varieties, yet slightly more petite than the larger executive scaled models. The desk and chair are in original condition with some areas that would benefit from refinishing. Expert refinishing can be provided at an additional cost.
