Got some serious work to do that requires a serious looking desk? Well in that case, this Gainsborough desk, available from Mark and Spencer is worthy of some serious attention.
It's a high street design but it's got more than a touch of Art Deco about it, from the streamlined shape to the black leather panel that sits in the centre of the desk. Available made in a choice of wood or oak, it's a classic looking piece of furniture that should last you a long time: in fact, it's been given the Design Guild mark award, an award that marks excellence in furniture design.
The desk costs £799.
