Antique desks and writing tables can be a good investment for the future as long as you choose the best quality you can afford and take good care of your furniture.

Consider a Writing Table or Library Table
If your office has limited space why not consider a smaller antique writing table? These are a good alternative to the large desk if you are looking for something more versatile and portable. Many of the smaller tables are very attractive and can be used as occasional tables or even dressing tables.
The larger partners Library tables look very elegant and offer very generous on working surfaces. Traditionally partners lbrary tables would be used in offices, in addition to the desk, for meetings and additional storage and working space. These would often be found in solicitors or barristers chambers or libraries and typically offer drawers on both sides of the table. The lager sized library tables can be easily rolled into position as they have castors, therefore making them them very versatile. They can also be used as a dining table, occasional table as well as desk.
We have a lovely selection of very good quality writing and library tables with attractive leather writing surfaces which can be changed to suit your preference at a small extra cost. Please ask for a colour samples for our antique writing surfaces.
