Revive the long-lost art of letter writing or be prepared when inspiration strikes by choosing our ball-and-claw desk as the focal point of your home office. Our Chippendale writing table offers a sophisticated solution for any kind of space in need of a writing surface. Laurel Crown has been reproducing antique Chippendale furnishings for nearly 30 years. Yet, we still treat each antique reproduction as if it were our first project. Each ball-and-claw writing desk is crafted by hand to ensure authenticity down to the minutest detail.
Our ball-and-claw desk is as fashionable as it is functional. Whether placed in your bedroom, den, or living room, we guarantee that the Chippendale writing table will provide a reliable workspace for years to come. Each desk features sturdy cabriole legs that terminate to ball-and-claw feet for dramatic effect. To complement its sense of timelessness, we added three-dimensional rope detailing along the desktop and bottom. We build every ball-and-claw writing desk with Honduran mahogany because it was preferred by Thomas Chippendale himself. This species is revered for its dimensional stability, moderate rot resistance, and superior workability.
