Love This Desk As Seen In French Elle Decor

I have a great house guest. It's the movie decorator Helen Britten in town working on a new James Franco movie, with Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. Part of her hunt and peck and find and get inspired process involves getting a stack of international interior design magazines, so I am having a ball flipping through them.

The latest issue on newsstands here in New Orleans of Elle Decoration France is the Winter issue

I have a client who asked me to create a desk for her using some heavy duty classical sculpture bases. Of course we don't have thousands of dollars to work with here. So I found some great pedestals from Ancient Sculpture Galley that will work perfectly.

The client talked about a glass top. But I think when I show her this desk in French Elle Decoration, she might go for a white top, which could be a remnant of white marble used for counter tops. A quick coat of white paint on the pedestals will complete the look.

The  beautiful desk belongs to Marie Victoire Poliakoff

Griffin pedestal from Ancient Sculpture Gallery - 30" tall 149. for one

Griffin pedestal from Ancient Sculpture Gallery - 32" tall - 159. for one

This one for 299. is meant to be used as a table base centered - Or use two as shown in the inspiration photo

This is NOT the look to go for!

But you can transform the elements into this!
