Antique Desk and Chair Set

Once upon a time there was a sweet little desk. She lived at The Broadmoor Hotel. She enjoyed the high life as presidents, dignitaries, famous musicians and businessmen sat and enjoyed the view of the Rocky Mountains...

Just kidding! Kind of. This desk WAS a part of the furnishings of the historic hotel. I can only imagine the faces she has seen!

The top had cigar burns and some decent wear-and-tear...

I paired her with a cute harp-backed chair.
