There was a Scottish furniture designer/maker in the earlier half of the twentieth century named Edward Barnsely; I refer to his designs frequently for inspiration. His furniture is fairly classic in form and has helped to ground and resolve some of my crazier ideas. This writing desk is a nod to Edward Barnsely. It has been used daily for years and will be for years to come, which is a cool feeling for me.
