Vintage Bureau Desk “Sakura”

This stunningly beautiful bureau has been refurbished with a Japanese theme throughout, hence the name “Sakura”, meaning Cherry Blossom.

The front of the desk, which inspired the overall design, has a decoupaged piece of Japanese art, very aptly titled “Kumoi-Sakura”, (Kumoi Cherry Trees).  The complementary colour palette of pale greens, soft golds and contrasting matte black, lifts this piece from retro to contemporary, without ever detracting from its original design roots.

Inside, the bureau boasts a lovely dainty drawer, refurbished with a mother-of-pearl front, and 4 sections for your letters, documents, and other paperwork. 

The oriental theme continues, matching the main drawer frontage to the writing shelf design. A new lock, with two keys, has been fitted, to ensure you can keep everything neat and secure. The vintage-aged gold highlights, added to the wooden carvings, finish this bureau restyle off to absolute perfection.

This delightful desk would look stunning in a beautiful light and airy bedroom, or in a home office, where it will no doubt brighten your working day.  Given its smaller dimensions, it would also work wonderfully well, in the hallway for post, newspapers, keys and other household essentials.

This truly versatile piece that’s as decorative as it is practical. It is sheer “Kanpeki”.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

The communication from start to finish was fantastic. There was a slight error with postage but were quick to correct the error and were open and honest. They were completely transparent and professional.
