The Contessa’s Desk


I have recently been inspired to try my creativity on repurposing furniture that would have been thrown away because it was no longer wanted or needed. Because of my Italian heritage, I am always drawn to the Old World style of decoration. This desk, which I’ve nicknamed The Contessa’s Desk, is my first attempt at re-creating a lost piece of furniture and to bring it back to life.


I wanted to create something that would remind you of something found in an old villa. If you use your imagination, you can imagine the Contessa sitting here and writing her correspondence while looking out onto the rolling hills and vineyards of her estate somewhere in the heart of Italy!
