Roll Top DeskWhen I was a kid I had a rolltop desk that I adored. It had been mom’s when she was a kid and is one of the only pieces of furniture that could be considered an heirloom in our family. (I’m pretty sure that desk is now in a storage unit in Florida with what’s left of mom’s possessions.) On a trip to my girlfriend’s aunt’s house in early 2001, I saw the exact same desk and emailed mom to tell her about it.
