Gillows Style Writing Table
This style is named after Robert Gillow who was famous for founding a furniture making company that was known for its luxurious furnishings. He is also believed to be the first person to import mahogany to England. His firm was originally called Gillow of Lacashire and eventually merged with another company to be the famous Waring & Gillow. The writing table you see here today is a brand new, hand crafted reproduction. It was meticulously made by a third generation cabinet maker in England using techniques passed down for generations. This is a dying art and this writing table is undoubtedly an antique of tomorrow. Ever facet of its creation speaks of the quality that went into the desk. The turned and fluted legs, the hand cut dovetailed drawers, and even the solid brass hardware is English-made. His finish is a seven stage hand rubbed finish that leaves his furniture looking like an antique in perfect condition.
This writing table is made of satinwood. Satinwood is native to countries around the Indian ocean and has been used in high end furniture for centuries. It has a golden color and (as you can see in the pictures) the wood tends to have wavy patterns of light and dark that make the writing table very interesting to look at. Complementing this satinwood are rosewood inlay around the drawer fronts, sides, and back. The top writing surface is a beautiful black leather with gold tooling. Both drawers open and close easily on wooden runners and lock with included keys. The height from the floor the bottom of the writing desk is 23.75″. The back of the desk is fully finished and it would look great in the middle of a room.
