A book and a desk. Perfect together but unfortunately, this vintage industrial metal desk is on the endangered species list. Until now. We recreated this vintage postmaster desk to preserve the past in hope that the desk and book remain a staple of everyday life. If not for reading and writing at least for it’s shape and form. Made from industrial strength metal, this desk stands taller than six feet. It’s construction includes shelves with a multitude of cubby holes. Originally used to hold letters and mail for later distribution these cubbies can now hold your favorite collectables. Or used to hold a book or two. But the best feature of this desk is the attached swivel stool. No separate chair required as this stool swivels out for sitting or back in when not in use. You can’t ask for more than that.
Vintage Industrial Metal Desk
Desks were originally used in schools and offices for academic and professional activities. They were later used for domestic use at home for reading and writing. And more recently to hold the sacred computer. By definition a desk usually has one or more drawers, compartments or cubby holes to hold office supplies and papers. They are usually made of wood or metal and one side is usually open to accommodate a stool or chair. But with the advent of iPhones and iPads the need for a desk has vanquished. Most people like to sit on the sofa, bed or chair while they surf the internet or connect with friends through social media. All done in the palm of their hand. But I still like to use a desk now and then. It keeps me disciplined and gives me good posture!
