An extremely rare and exceptional Art Deco executive desk designed in 1984 by Pierre Paulin for Baker Furniture. The desk features gorgeous birdseye maple and a leather top writing surface. This desk was based on a desk designed for the office of President François Mitterand at the Palais de l’Élysée in 1983. The original Baker label is present. The desk is in very good original vintage condition.
