Papiro modernist-style desk

Papiro Think office desks today and you'll instantly think of some cheap wooden flatpack creation from Ikea (or similar outlet). It's rare for anyone to spend big on a desk, even if they work from home regularly. But if you're an exception to the home-assembly rule, check out this amazing Papiro desk, designed by Augusto Mandeli and Walter Selva.

Originally introduced in 2004, the desk has the look and basic functionality of a modernist piece from 70 years previous - as well as looking a little like the desks Merrow Associates were producing in the 60s. There's a choice of polished wood finishes (oak in this case), a chrome base and two drawers.

It's priced at around £1,150. Not cheap, but a stylish addition to your home.
