Tables dedicated to writing add a special touch to the living area. Here's how to choose the most suitable one

Extendable desks and consoles are more than just tables, often equipped with drawers and storage compartments. Beyond functionality, in fact, with their presence in the living room they immediately refer to an atmosphere of elegance of yesteryear, when people used to write thank-you cards for an invitation to dinner or a gift received. Today these habits are replaced by faster and more immediate communications, but we have not stopped wanting to put impromptu ideas and thoughts on paper, sort out the agenda and correspondence. That’s why writing tables and consoles are (still) here to stay and add a chic touch to the living room.

Vanity writing desk

Among the writing tables in the Bontempi Casa catalog, the Vanity model stands out for its design that recalls the style of the 1920s, but reinterpreted in a more modern and minimalist way. The top, available in SuperMarble or melamine, is equipped with a practical and elegant card holder structure and a drawer to keep everything in order. All the functional and decorative elements can be built by choosing the finishes in different colors to make the desk an even more personal space.

Taylor desk

A decidedly original proposal is the Taylor desk, characterized by a top covered in leather available in different colors to choose from, according to your own style of furniture. While the classic brick, mud or dark brown lend themselves to a more formal elegance, the bright red or indigo make it suitable for more modern styles. The design of its lacquered steel structure perfectly matches the versatile Boss stool, that can be completed with a comfortable padded cushion.

Artistico console table

Do you prefer wooden desks? The Artistico table by Bontempi Casa is also here for this. One of the most iconic and loved models in the catalog, with its characteristic cross-legged structure, in the extendable console version it lends itself perfectly to being used as a writing table. The sturdy top is available in lacquered or veneered wood and can create a continuity or contrast effect with the finish of the lacquered steel legs.

Extendable console table Mago

Among the modern extendable console tables, however, Mago has a steel structure with square shapes that makes it a true design classic and easily lends itself to being combined with different types of chairs, from colored ones to those with more important shapes. An essential model like Eva, for example, emphasizes its minimal chic style and creates a writing area with a discreet and modern elegance.

With their refined, modern and functional designs, Bontempi Casa writing desks and consoles are suitable for different locations and style interpretations: you just have to find the right model to give that extra touch to your living room.
