1. Vintage Drexel Profile walnut roll top desk by John Van Koert, made in 1955. This is a cool piece that is small enough to fit in tight spaces, yet still functional for use. The roll top allows you to hide away things you don't want out in the open. It's in good condition, and the roll top and drawer work well. There is definitely some cosmetic wear, but nothing too noticeable. 34.25" wide, 26" deep, 34" high, 25.25" high writing surface. $950.

2. Egon Ostergaard cylinder roll top Secretary teak desk, made in Sweden, circa 1960s. This is a versatile piece with three large lower drawers, a slide out writing surface, and cubbyholes and small drawers that hide behind a locking roll top. The look is very much Danish modern with solid teak and teak veneer, tapered legs and recessed wood pulls. All drawers and roll top work well, the key operates both the locks on the roll top and the top drawer. Stamped on the bottom "Made in Sweden" and the original label is still attached to the bottom as well. 35.5" wide, 18.5" deep, 38.5" high. The pull out writing desk is 28.5" high and when it is extended the overall depth is 27.25". $1095.

3. George Nelson for Herman Miller roll top desk, designed in 1953 as part of the Action Office 1 (AO1) furniture line. The primary ideas behind the AO1 furniture line were the physical and psychological needs of office workers. The desk features a polished aluminium base, laminated plastic sides, oak wood tambour rolling door and angled oak veneer writing surface. It has deep storage in the back that can be accessed with the door open all the way, and two multi-compartment sliding drawers in the front. It is in good vintage condition with minor wear appropriate for age. 54" wide, 30" deep, 34" high. $2750.

4. Vintage walnut executive desk with a large working surface and lots of drawer space. There are four drawers on one side and two on the other, including one very deep file drawer. The drawers have beautiful sculpted wood pulls, and they open and close very smoothly on metal glides. This attractive desk is unlabeled, but it looks similar to those by Jens Risom. It is heavy and very sturdy, and the lack of center drawer leaves a lot of leg space. It has lovely walnut grain to the wood and has the warm honey color of teak. 61.25" wide, 31.25" deep, 29" high on the desktop, 29.75" high at the ends. $1250.

5. Striking desk designed by Milo Baughman in the early 1950s for the Drexel Perspective collection. It features a file drawer with built in wood dividers on the left of the knee hole and two drawers to the right. There are cubbies behind the two sliders which feature copper finger pulls. The Perspective line was made with exotic and beautiful Mindoro wood imported from the Philippines. The writing surface is tan vinyl. The back is finished so it looks great from every angle. 56" wide, 31.25" deep, 34.75" high, 29.5" high writing surface. $2495.

6. Mid century walnut and brass executive desk, possibly by Harry Lunstead but we can't confirm. It's a nice piece, quite large and pretty heavy. It's very open, with just 2 small drawers for pens and other small items. It's very sturdy and in good condition overall, with some expected wear to the top including fading. 74" wide, 35.75" deep, 29.25" high. $795.

7. Rosewood desk by Peter Lovig Nielsen and Jens Quistgaard, made in Denmark. It has an innovative design with a hinged top that flips down, expanding the work surface to accommodate another person on the other side in a partner desk style. There are four smoothly working drawers with interesting wood handles on one side, and plenty of small storage spaces on both sides of the desk. This particular desk was made in 1970 and has recently had some refinish and restoration work done. It still has some patina and is not perfect but it is gorgeous and quite a statement piece. Lovig Dansk Design and 1970 stamps on the underside. 63.75" wide, 28.75" deep, 29" high, 34.25" high at the back, when the top piece is flipped over it is 38" deep. $2895.

8. Mid-century rosewood desk that can also double as a narrow dining table for a small space. It has a rosewood base with white laminate trim and chrome legs. The rosewood grain is beautiful both on the base and the tabletop. It has some patina and wear from use over the years, including some veneer chips on the side of the top. It used to be height adjustable but has been fixed at desk/dining table height. 55" wide, 27.5" deep, 30.5" high. $995.
