The Kjaer desk pictured is a combination of Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras and Tasmanian Blackwood for the leg base. The design is heavily inspired by the famous Danish designer, Bodil Kjær, whose desk design was featured in two James Bond films and a number of BBC election broadcasts. Some writers have claimed the desk design to be the most iconic desk of the 20th century - a sentiment we at Ambrose definitely agree with. Currently, antique Bodil Kjaer desks sell for as much as $50,000.00 and can reach even higher amounts depending on the timber used for the drawer casing (typically African Wenge, Brazilian Rosewood, American Walnut or an Oak of some sort).
The idea for our version was to use Blackheart Sassafras in a way that didn't make it too overbearing, which is incredibly easy to do due to its extremely erratic feature. The desk's mitred corners allow for an eye-catching waterfall end feature, with the Blackheart Sassafras's dark heartwood flowing over each of the corners. This desk was originally designed for the Ambrose office, but is of course available in any combination of timbers or stains. Blackheart Sassafras is also available but is subject to a lengthy sourcing process due to the market rarity and variation available.
