    Title: Danish Modern Model 68 Secretary Desk in Teak by Arne Wahl Iversen Vinde Møbelfabrik, Denmark, c. 1960's

    About: Introducing a freshly restored Model 68 secretary desk designed in the 1960s by the influential Arne Wahl Iversen for Vinde Møbelfabrik. Constructed from a mix of solid and veneered Burmese teak with exceptional old-growth woodgrains this aesthetically pleasing desk is captivating from every angel and features elegant details like the hand-carved solid teak handles and sloping inner drawer boxes.

    Born in Denmark in 1927 Iversen attended the Academy of Fine Arts, in the furniture making and design department, under the tutorship of the now iconic Kaare Klint. Throughout the 50's and 60's Iversen produced his furniture in many different factories around Denmark, but he is best known for his models designed and manufactured at Komfort and Vinde Møbelfabrik.

    In 1968 his bedroom no. 92 from Vinde Møbelfabrik was exhibited at the furniture fair in Geneva. It happened that Monaco's Prince Rainier and his wife, Grace Kelly were attending, spotting it at the show and immediately ordered one. With a Hollywood icon and a royal prince as fans, this contributed to his bedroom furniture becoming popular in the US market.

    Featuring a cleverly designed drop-down desk top, two large drawers (one of which includes functioning lock and key) and multiple cubbies and smaller drawers in the upper portion for easy organization this desk packs a ton of versatility in a small size. Ideal for apartments or those who are limited on space but unwilling to compromise on style and functionality. Make it yours today before it's gone forever.
