This desk was placed in the living area of the clients house and the corner of the desk was near the main walkway, so I made the legs curve inwards at the bottom to help protect toes. The drawer section on the top is removable to allow for the desk to be used as a table. Material is Ipil with Molave for the drawer fronts. Handles are Ebony.
