The Jean-Michel Frank Desk

by Erin Ferucci
Celebrity Lifestyle Designer

Everyone needs a great desk. Hands down, this is my favorite desk of all time. This is the kind of desk you dream of owning.Known as the President Desk, it was designed in 1930 by my all time favorite designer, Jean-Michel Frank in Paris. (1895-1941) Frank was known for his minimalist style which is both elegant and functional.

Currently this exclusive desk is distributed by Ecart International, Paris. And is available through the trade only at Ralph Pucci . They have showrooms in New York and Los Angeles offering a wide range of fine quality Jean-Michel Frank designs, including his famous "club chair".

The desk comes in four finishes: black, brown, natural and wengee stain - all on oak.
I prefer the light oak (above). The desk is currently owned by Steven Speilberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen, to name a few. Clearly this desk has seen more than one million dollar idea cross it's smooth finish.
