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.
