Wright's next "Important Design" auction is being held next Tuesday, June 2. While perusing the online catalog, we kept noticing the desks that are included - it seems to be an especially interesting selection. Price estimates are what you would expect for vintage items from famed designers, making them outside our "home office" budget, but in terms of pure interest and inspiration these take the cake...

Shown above, from left to right:
1) Home Office Desk by George Nelson & Associates for Herman Miller, 1946, Estimate $5000 - 7000
2) Desk by Bodil Kjaer for E. Pedersen & Sons, 1959, Estimate $15000 - 20000
3) Pirelli Tower Desk by Gio Ponti, 1961, Estimate $7000 - 9000
4) Curved Compass Desk by Jean Prouve, 1960, Estimate $15000 - 20000
5) Crescent Desk by Vladimir Kagan, 1975, Estimate $7000 - 9000
