Archibald Writing Bureau


A small spaces desk, home bar or make-up hutch

Designed + Made by So Watt

The Archibald Writing Bureau is the ideal piece to invest in now and take with you through every house move enduring those ever changing cabinets landscapes. A focused study desk in a small nook becomes a makeup hutch and shoe storage for the bedroom or a bookshelf and bar in the living area.

The Archibald has custom steel pin hinges through the side, supported by gas struts to hold the writing door open or closed. Adjustable shelves and cable cut outs in the back panel and corner of each shelf help to neatly manage cords. The Archibald is made from high grade Birch Plywood and finished with a low VOC natural water based durable finish in colours specially formulated by So Watt.

Our pieces are hand made to order. Custom sizes and finishes are available.
