Friends, I am officially obsessed with tables and desks. Remember our trip to the Midlands antique fair where I tried unsuccessfully to find myself a work table? Well since that trip, I have been dreaming about finding my desk. I know there are other more important things to think (and obsess) about I feel hampered and unsettled by the lack of a proper work space. The fates must be conspiring too because ever since that trip, I have come across various kinds of desks, none of which are exactly what I need or want. I feel a little like Goldilocks!
First there were these adorable Florentine nesting tables from the 50s….cute but not at all what I am looking for!
Then there was this desk, also from the 50s with a mirror. But this one was a little too small, there would’ve been too little work space.
Then there was this absolutely gorgeous carved flip up desk from the 19th century. Isn’t it just pretty? I was literally drooling when I saw it. Unfortunately practicality reared its head–this simply wouldn’t have enough work space for me. Believe me it was hard to walk away from this beauty! I might have another lead which I aim to follow up tonight. I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be the one. But if it doesn’t work out, maybe I should just go for this one..
This one is by Industrial Artifact, an etsy seller I just discovered. Their philosophy is to find old industrial artifacts or objects and give them new life by repurposing them. I love this philosophy. Its the same guiding principle behind my jewelry. And this table certainly fits my work requirements. So I wonder if this is actually the one.
What about you friends, any object related obsessions lately? I’d love to hear about them.
And if you have ideas where I can find my table, feel free to share them!
