LA shopportunity: crate & barrel regency desk floor sample

m21 just returned from a quick trip to the grove and of course, ducked into the crate & barrel store while there. they had all kinds of discontinued floor samples on sale, but the one that caught our eye was the "regency" desk- a favorite of m21's because of it's sophisticated deco/neo-classic french lines (love the aged brass sabots and recessed pulls), and it's dual versatility as both a decorative sideboard and a work area via a drop down desk surface, hidden as a drawer (it was our favorite non-upholstered piece in c & b's line, so of course they discontinued it). but since m21 loves it so much, he wanted to alert his readers to the opportunity to purchase the floor sample at a greatly reduced price- $519.00, reduced from around $1200.00, if we recall correctly. outside of fingerprints and smudges, it looked in great shape too...
not the most flattering picture- maybe that's why such a chic item is being discontinued. :-(

A very stylish piece. Actually reminds me of a similar set on a zebra print rug.
