Last post I'd started showing what my buddy Kris and I did when we decorated her teenage son, Kieran's bedroom.
let's continue where we left off.
Kris and I placed a desk across from his bed.
We had visions of him working on his homework there.
I don't know if he ever did, 'cuz these days kids use laptops and sit just about anywhere when doing their work.
The rosewood desk and chair are Anglo Indian.
We found them in a local antique store.
Anglo Indian furniture is very often made from rosewood, which is native to India.
I tried to do some research for you guys on this style, but got bored and didn't finish.
From what I could gather, it's highly carved and turned and
made from rosewood!
So that's all I know,
and now you know it too!!!!!
We wanted to hang a shelf over the desk, to hold his trophies and memorabilia....
We found this one at auction.
It's called a whale back shelf and is American from the early 1800's.
The sides of this type of shelf are shaped, many of them resembling whales, giving it it's name.
I stole this image off the internet to explain this better, since I didn't take a better shot.
Since the boy was growing up, we gave him a desk lamp with a little more sophistication,
not that he gave a rat's behind.....
Kris and I did!!!!!
It was another Pottery Barn find,
here is a side by side of the bed and desk, so you can see how the room was coming together.....
the other corner of the room!!!!!
on that note.
