Classic for sale: Merrow Associates desk

Merrow_desk

One of the more stylish places to do your work or web browsing is on this stunning Merrow Associates desk.

It’s being offered for sale right now by Da Silva Interiors in almost mint condition – which isn’t bad as piece of high-end British design (likely to be the work of Richard Young) is probably 35 – 40 years old.

A rosewood table with chrome-covered steel detail, a single draw, minimalist shape and the original glass cover to protect the top – all that will set you back around £3,500.

Incidentally, we are working on a small Merrow Associates side project right now – so if you have any knowledge, literature or indeed contact with anyone who was once part of the Guildford company (especially Richard Young, Percy Wyett, Peter Weeks or Peter Wyett) , we would love to hear from you.

    I am Percy Wyett’s son, Simon Wyett. My father was the managing director and founder of Merrow associates. Richard Young worked for G-plan and was for the first few years employed by My father and his co-director Peter Wyett (my uncle)as designer. Richard was then invited to the board as a director I think in 65.My father is still alive and lives with me in Corfu Greece. I will ask him for more details and try to give you a totaly accurate accont of the company history.
    I would like to contact the man Roy Lewis as I don’t remember him, also Richard Young never made teak furniture with Merrow associates it was all rosewood. and NONE of it was solid, all venered.
    I recall well that Arthor Jones was Foreman for all the time the company existed.
