Mid-Century Desk Reclaimed From New Scotland Yard HQ


A vintage, 1950s mahogany desk salvaged from the Metropolitan Police headquarters, New Scotland Yard, before it relocated.

The piece features a dark leatherette top and solid wood frame. The desk has a very interesting provenance and offers a functional and robust piece of furniture perfect for an office space.

The simple geometric structure is a fine example of furniture design produced during the mid-century period.
