Denmark, Early 1960s
Designed by Erling Torvits for Klim Møbelfabrik, this exquisite secretaire takes full advantage of its richly grained Brazilian rosewood. The case sits on slender tapered feet, with six large drawers at the bottom. A locking desktop folds down to reveal three storage spaces behind two sliding panels above three small drawers with bowtie fronts. To the right side is a bank of four additional drawers. Concealed along the secretaire’s upper edge, three slim drawers release with a hidden mechanism.
