I think this is a good idea as well. I really love the various lucite/acrylic boxes that Albrizzi designed:



My wife does something similar with her jewelry; rather than using a single all-encompassing jewelry box, she stacks vintage boxes to hold the various pieces. For instance, there is this Danese metal box with sliding cover and multiple compartments (actually intended as an ashtray), designed by Bruno Munari, in her dressing area:

I've always been attracted to boxed, and cased items. It gives an interesting dimension to something that otherwise might be slightly banal.

The old taxidermy glass bells are also quite interesting for enclosing certain collectable objects.

Good eye! They aren't matched and the revolver will never see the inside of a holster anyway -- Colt Police Positive Target Models in .32 Colt Police are to rare for wear.

I like my desks uncluttered, except for the piles of paper, and a plant or two.

Yes, I discovered that site a while ago. I like that eagle-design money clip, and some of the vintage goods are also nice. Also nice on a desk would be a piece of large coral on a wooden stand.

Don't you have a little cannon for your desk?


I wish I had a desk as classy as that (though mine was free )

Here is a picture of my desk a la Huntsman. The desk is a vintage Danish one. I will probably be changing my pen holder soon. I've yet to find a suitable desk pad.

I would take a picture of my desk to show you my desk accessories, but it's covered with crap. It always is. I love the dream of a large desk in my private library but all I have is my work desk. And it always has piles of papers all over it.

Do you guys actually do any work on these desks or are they for writing only?

Vintage Danish furniture offers high design for not a very high price.

Here is an unstaged photo of the desk in our bedroom; I snapped the desktop "as found" earlier today. All of the stuff on it is my wife's, as she uses this piece as her own casual desk. The desk that I use for business (where I'm currently sitting) is too messy to photograph at the moment.



Lamp and pencil cup are vintage. The other items are contemporary.
