PALLADIO-INSPIRED WRITING DESKS


Gracious villas dot the countryside around Venice, Italy; the legacy of a Renaissance architect credited with shaping the world we live in today. Andrea Palladio’s genius began with a study of the details and forms of classic architecture. He then re-worked these timeless principles from the past in a way that met the needs of his more modern world.

Steve Vigar pays homage to the great Andrea Palladio with this unique writing desk. The top is a Palladio-inspired villa, which accommodates pens, pencils, paper and the other accoutrements of the literary life. Executed in beautiful hardwoods, the desk glows with the same internal harmony and balance that made Palladio one of history’s greatest architects.
