Good Questions: What Do I Do With This?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

What does a modern Brooklynite do when she inherits an antique?

I just inherited this mahogany drop leaf desk from my grandmother. It's fully functional and brimming with sentimental value, since I loved exploring all its cubbies and drawers as a kid. Alas, it doesn't fit my adult style. My partner and I prefer sleek, modern lines. Is there anything I can do to help this piece of furniture blend in?...

Short-term and long-term solutions are welcome. I'd even consider refinishing it or putting new drawer pulls on it.

Thanks! Renate
