One Desk, Three Looks

One Desk, Three Looks

Have you heard of Graham & Green? I hadn’t until I stumbled upon their Odyssey writing desk and fell in love with it’s mid-century modern lines! I was instantly attracted to how easily this 1940’s inspired desk adapted to its surroundings, and took on a whole new feel. Whether it be set in a traditional or a modern interior, the versatility of this piece is effortless. I love the lines of this desk.

Here, the Odyssey desk is paired with a Kartell Victoria ghost chair designed by Phillipe Starck:


The Neoclassical style ghost chair is a modern classic, and I think these two make a dynamite couple!

And here, the desk is teamed up with an Art Deco inspired slipper chair, the Cleopatra:


Isn’t it amazing how different the feeling is with the introduction of colour and texture?

And last, the Odyssey desk is matched with a member of its family, the Odyssey chair.


Just to give you a better sense of the overall feel in this space, here is the lamp that is sitting on top of the desk.


This lamp is made from a reclaimed tap! Sure puts a different slant on the overall look and feel than at first glance doesn’t it?

Can you see how great classic pieces lend themselves to creating impact in all kinds of settings? A desk with such strong lines would make you think it can only work in one type of setting, but as these photos show, it can work anywhere. A collection of great pieces is always greater than the sum of its parts!

Do you have any great pieces working in unexpected settings?
