The very definition of sleek sophistication, the Mortimer is a desk for those who subscribe to the ‘less is more’ aesthetic. With its impressively-streamlined silhouette, this desk promises to redefine your study, turning it from a tired and cluttered office into a luxury workstation where creativity and productivity can thrive.
Cable management and four frieze drawers ensure that the desk meets and exceeds all your practical requirements, while in the style category, it goes above and beyond. Majestic yet remaining light and uplifting, the Mortimer is a celebration of the unrivalled elegance of perfectly-executed minimalism.
A desk that would suit a variety of interiors, thanks to its smart simplicity, the Mortimer would nevertheless make the perfect centrepiece for a minimalist modern office space, accompanied by punches of colour in the form of lamps, small ornaments, or perhaps a metallic accent to complement the polished brass finish.
Seen here finished in the dusky hues of Macassar ebony, the Mortimer’s rich tones make it the perfect addition to a study, with accents in dark, sultry colours, such as crimson or emerald green. The gorgeous stripy grain of the Macassar ebony brings texture to the surface and a hint of the organic, complementing the table’s ultra-contemporary profile.
Like all DAVIDSON pieces, the Mortimer is available in a finish of your choosing, according to the preferred look of your room scheme. Our helpful team will be delighted to discuss and advise on options.
With a long, slender tabletop supported by a pedestal of two rectangular legs, the design of the Mortimer is simple and therein lies its power. It takes up the very minimum of visual space as its slim top and svelte pedestal allow plenty of light to pass through. This conveys an airy lightness of form that makes it the easiest of tables to integrate into an interior.
To round it all off, both legs have a polished brass inlay that matches that of the handles, a small but divine finishing touch.
The small rectangular handles are finished in a polished brass whose golden tones are the perfect complement to the deep Macassar ebony. As opposed to traditional drop handles, these flatter the contemporary mood of the rest of the table.
The handles are also available in nickel, or antiqued brass, or bronze, in either a polished or brushed finish. Opt for nickel for rooms with a cooler aesthetic and paler palettes, while the warmer tones of brass and bronze suit interiors with darker furnishings.
Cable access points allow for a neat and tidy workspace without any visible cables ruining the aesthetic experience. The cabling works by running down through the back of the pedestal, behind the drawers, to a floor-mounted power socket, or out through a small worm hole at the back of the desk.
The interior of the drawers is tinted to match the primary finish for a smooth and seamless integration with the desk's exterior.
