Description Dimensions Condition
Rare mid-century modern Heywood Wakefield Prophecy desk. This desk seldom comes to market, in fact we have only ever had pieces from the "Prophecy" collection once in the entire history of Furnish Me Vintage. This desk is in outstanding original condition with no notable wear to the clean white Formica (laminate) top. Perhaps it is because Formica is virtually indestructible, and likely partly due to the care of a loving owner. Prophecy is distinguished by Heywood Wakefield's masterful mix of Art Deco elements and Modernism. The stacked legs surrounding the drawer column are reminiscent of the profile of the Empire State Building, an Art Deco icon. The desk is finished on all sides, allowing for flexibility in placement. The desk does not need to be relegated to a position along the wall. Functional as it is beautiful with a handsome floating second tier shelf wrapping the right side of the desk. Plenty of storage with through hearty, solid wood drawers. Matching chair pictured is original to the desk and sold separately.
