200-Year-Old Table Transforms into an Ornate Mechanical Desk

desk1800s

This antique table design is totally unexpected! From My Modern Met:

This elegant folding desk is a unique piece—only four others of similar kind are known to have been made. An antique item, it transforms from a compact foldable table into an entire functional unit, complete with a built-in chair, writing desk, drawers and leaves. Currently owned by the Musée du Louvre in Paris, this model is the most luxurious of the four, with a rich masculine aesthetic that was typical of the Napoleonic era.
