A Marvelous Table and it’s Hidden Compartments

11 September, 2015

The Author is positively enamored of this early 19th Century writing table, created by the workshop of Duncan Phyfe and found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Elaborate interior workings! Hidden panels! Unexpected drawers! Think of the organization opportunities, and what a handsome piece of furniture.

Readers might remember the Author’s admiration of Tejo Remy’s overly complicated, slightly jumbled Curious Chest of Drawers, as seen in Brooklyn, London and Stockholm. The Author thinks Remy’s drawers belong in the same place of her heart as the Phyfe work table.
