This innovative desk by Peter Lovig Nielsen features a shelf that flips over creating a large, flat work surface. With storage compartments on either side, this piece is ideal as a shared desk for home or office. The four smooth sliding shallow drawers have sculpted circular pulls. Original brass hinges support the upper shelf. This mid century modern gem carries a maker’s mark on the underside reading “Lovig Dansk Designs Denmark.” The rear stretcher has been recreated in our workshop using a tropical hardwood called sapele. Sapele is a durable, sustainably harvested wood that closely resembles teak. A close up of the stretcher is pictured in the last photo. This rare collector’s item is in very good vintage condition with some darkening on the right side towards the rear. The writing surface measures 38 inches with the top flat.
