My New Favorite Purchase: A Vintage Rattan Desk

An old, rattan desk? YES PLEASE. When I say I’m in LOVE, I’m truly in love. Here’s the back story on this gem of a desk. I was in an antique shop in Norwalk and found the perfect rattan night table for one of the bedrooms on Martha’s Vineyard.

For those who are just following along, my parents are building a home on MV and gave me some creative control with the bedrooms! As I was purchasing the nightstand, I was telling the young girl that I wanted to find a rattan desk as well. A very nice man working at the antique center over heard our conversation and told me about a desk he remembered seeing at another antique store. He was nice enough to ask the owner of that shop to email photos so I could see the desk. The moment I saw the photo, I knew it had to be mine. So fast forward a week later, I drove to New Haven and picked it up! It’s currently staying at my house until the home on MV is complete. So, in the meantime, I’ve decided to make it feel ‘at home’. I have to admit, I don’t really want to see this pretty thing go …

P.S. I can’t wait to share photos of this desk at the new house, I have the perfect turquoise rattan chair to go with it. Until then, I’ll just have to enjoy it!
