Who Made This Desk and Should I Paint It?

Good Questions

Q: I found this blonde mid-century desk at a thrift shop a few years ago. Its great lines immediately caught my eye, and I had to have it. The shutter style drawers and end legs are so unique. However, there are no markings on it to identify the maker, and I've never been able to find another one like it in any internet research. I'd love to learn more about it. Does anyone have an idea who could have made this? Unfortunately, the veneer finish is not in good condition, so I am probably going to paint it. I haven't decided what color. Any suggestions? Would love your feedback.
