Jacques Adnet style desk with 3 drawers

Brass frame, medal bronze decor. Leather wrapping with Hermès style saddle-stitching.


Icon of luxurious French modernism, Jacques Adnet was an Art Deco furniture designer, architect and interior designer.

During the 1950s he created leather-covered furniture with Hermès.


Saddle Stitching is a hand stitching technique commonly used among saddle makers.

It is not only used for saddle making, but also for handmade leather goods and luxury leather-covered furniture.

Hermès, the high-end French luxury goods manufacturer, is one of the only well-known brands to still employ the technique.
