Super Base

I need a desk and it can't just be any desk. It has to be a "ME" desk. I have found said desk and I've been obsessing about it since I first laid eyes on it.

This Ram's Head dining table turned desk is the desk of my DREAMS!!
I squealed with delight the first time I saw this desk. I had no idea about the history, era or anything, I just knew deep, deep in my bones that I SHALL have this table as my desk, too.

I love the strength that this table exudes.. it's elegant.. it's luxe.. it's fab and totally and completely me.

I love it's artistry and glamour.
LOVE!

I have been searching high and low for this beautiful table/desk. I finally found one at a charming vintage store, Again and Again. You have to check out the site and if you're lucky enough to live in the Dallas area.. you can stop by the store and see all the fabulousness in person.

Upon eyeing that table, I sent an email immediately.. around 2am this morning. I couldn't even sleep knowing that the table is almost in reach. I was so anxious, I didn't even wait the my requisite of 24hrs before making phone contact. It was serious, Folks. I NEED this table/desk.

I spoke to the super sweet owner, Leslie, she was so patient and answered my millions of questions about the table and a few other furniture items in her store.

I also learned that she custom reupholsters, lacquers and remixes her awesome furniture finds per the clients request. Which is great because I also have my eye on two hooded chairs and two scroll benches.

Back to the Ram's Head table.. unfortunately it's out of my immediate plans to finally make that desk mine. Boo! Maybe the co-signer will agree to a payment plan or acquiesce to selling just the table bases without the glass. It may not amount to a huge discount but every little bit helps.

Leslie was also kind enough to suggest a few other vintage stores that are located on the East Coast... Circa Who (great store) and  C. Bell (LOVE this new discovery). While neither had a Ram's Head table, they both carry some really cool stuff.

So, the quest continues... I have hope of finding this table buried in the back of some non nondescript vintage shop for a few hundred dollars. Stranger things have happened.
