Ideal for pastel painting. Originally designed for world-famous pastelist Urania Christy Tarbet, this desk is the answer for the pastel painter who seeks convenience and organization. What looks like an unobtrusive hutch or TV console when not in use, blooms like a lotus into a variety of pastel storage trays and much needed workspace and storage area.
Urania's Desk is designed for the pastelist, however it makes a perfect companion for the oil painter and watercolorist as well. Features two 26" x 18" x 1-1/2" pivoting drawers which each hold a variety of art supplies including pastel sticks or paint tubes. The attached fold-out easel handles canvases up to 36" in height and can be adjusted to all sorts of positions, including a forward tilt. It is mounted to the back of the desk and will slide out-of-sight for storage. Includes two large stainless steel canisters with space available for an two additional canisters.
The entire piece of quality studio furniture is handcrafted from solid oak, sanded, then hand rubbed with oil for a beautiful natural finish.
Note - Use the doors open to support weight of swinging drawers.
