We can bring two or three pieces (dependent on size) to you and set them up in situ to help you decide. If you would prefer a different colour writing leather we can replace it in any colour and style of tooling you would like, please ask for a quote If you are not sure which type of desk is best for you why not check our advice on choosing?
Antique Writing Tables
If your office has limited space and would not take a large antique desk why not consider a smaller antique library table? These are a good alternative to the antique desk if you are looking for something that is more versatile and portable in its uses. If needed they can be easily rolled into position due to having castors, therefore making them them very versatile and available to be used as a dining table, occasional table as well as desk.
The larger antique partners writing tables are often easier to place in the home or study than a large partners desk. They look very elegant and offer very generous on working surfaces. Traditionally antique writing tables would be used in the office, in addition to the antique desk, for office meetings and for additional storage and working space. Antique library tables or partners tables would often be found in solicitors or barristers chambers or libraries and typically offer drawers on both sides of the table.
We have a lovely selection of very good quality antique writing tables and library tables with attractive leather writing surfaces can be changed to suit your dÃ©cor or preference at a small extra cost. Please ask for a colour chart for our antique writing surfaces and a quote for replacement if you are interested in this option.
