Customise Your Desktop Leather

Where possible, we try to salavage the original leather on a piece if it is beautiful, however this is not always possible where time has left to great a mark. We offer clients the opportunity to have a high quality custom desktop leather made to your exact specifications.Do you have a particular colour scheme you’re trying to work with? Simply provide us with a colour swatch and we will have one made to match. Options include matt or colour graduated, aged with patina or looking brand new and don’t forget to tell us what style of embossing you’d like for your borders and if you’d like them gilded as well.To discuss desktop options for this piece, please phoneor email us.
