From paper to furnishing, the Etienne writing desk started out simply as lines on a piece of paper. In building the Etienne writing desk we spared no detail and not a rushed step was taken. We know that a fabulous piece of furniture is not produced in one go. Our sketches of the Etienne show the first phase of its design with delicately appointed scroll feet and a soft curve in the desk, creating an elegant style. We decided to give the Etienne a French design, made of solid mango wood and added delicate iron handles. That makes this desk sturdy and beautifully styled especially for those seeking a more traditional feature.

Once we completed several drafts of the Etienne, they were sent off to India to get the first feedback on the manufacturing process. With our local team, we drafted and tweaked the design until we made sure we create the perfect piece for your home. Then, we sent off our final drafts to design the first model. To make sure everything is perfect, we visited our workshop in India, put the first model under the microscope and made some final changes. It then went into production and was hand-crafted with great care and is now available on our website.

Etienne makes a sophisticated addition in any room folding up for tighter spaces, while still providing ample storage. With plenty of available space above to rest portraits of friends and family and other desired decorum it has additional cabinets and drawers you can find when opening the lid. Our lovely secretaire allows you to be transported to a new realm by sitting with your favourite book or letting your thoughts run wild on paper.
