The Memsahib's Desk


The Memsahib’s Desk has an uncanny resemblance to a writing desk my mother had when we lived on a Tea Garden in Assam – I seem to recollect this as being in the “Burra Bungalow” at the Hathikulli Tea Estate. She really loved it and would sit at it and write her notes, daily diary, and invitations for the many events we would have at home.
I also imagined her writing her letters to us when we were at boarding school in Darjeeling from this desk. This Desk a throwback to a classic design topped by a marble writing surface is a quintessential style and a classic in every sense of the word – timeless in its appeal and design. The Memsahib’s Desk is beautiful, and the perfect place to spend some time at – reading, writing, or working at something fun.

This Wisteria exclusive is elegantly hand-made to our specifications and design and has been a popular item in our collection for a few years. It’s timeless in style, beautiful, and practical. This fine furniture is made with attention to every detail and with you in mind. This Wisteria Classic Design is made with hand-picked materials and to exact technical standards. Each design has been tested and carefully crafted to the correct proportions. This makes every aspect of the design appear in perfect harmony and in perfect relation to other aspects of the design. At every opportunity, we put additional emphasis on craftsmanship, hand-made quality, and ensuring structural strength to withstand years of use. This is part of our Wisteria Satisfaction Guarantee for this Collection.

The marble top sits on a nicely crafted wooden base, with drawers with brass handles, and swan-like wooden legs. The desk is nicely proportioned to provide ample writing space and place for reference items and a small laptop, or tablet. Imported. Handling Fee is $100.
