Investing in a Antique Desk?
Antique desks and antique 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. Although not guaranteed to increase in value over the longer term they are generally holding their value compared to many other investment avenues. You also have the advantage of having a beautiful piece of well made furniture gracing your office or study.

If you are furnishing business premises with impressive antique furniture it has the added advantage of promoting a sense confidence, centuries of tradition and financial security, even if you set up in business yesterday!

During the last 30 or so years good quality large mahogany and oak desks have been very popular and sought after. Desks in good condition, and not over restored, will always return the seller a substantial price after years of use and enjoyment.

Antique Desk Chairs & Antique Library Chairs
If you already have an antique desk or antique writing table it makes good sense to compliment it an antique desk chair or library chair. Choosing a chair in the right period or in a similar wood or similar style is also worth considering to give your office a well planned and more harmonious feel. We have a good selection of quality antique desk chairs in a range of styles; Victorian chairs, Edwardian and Georgian chairs; antique armchairs, larger size antique desk chairs, library chairs in a range of sizes woods and styles to suit your desk or table.

Our antique library chairs also offer a great value investment for you home study, library or office. If you are looking to purchase antique desk chair or antique library chair we are sure you will be pleased with our collection.

If you like the desk or table but would prefer another writing leather we can arrange for a replacement in any colour and style you would like. If you are not sure which type of desk is best for you why not check our advice on choosing?

If you are furnishing your home office and don't have room for a large antique desk why not consider an antique library table or partners writing table. These are a good alternative to the antique desk if you are looking for something that is perhaps more versatile and portable. A partners writing table will often have 2 or 3 drawers each side giving good storage for paperwork and desk paraphernalia. They will often be easily movable too, if needed, with castors to roll them in and out of a work space when not being used.
They are often easier to place in the home or study, look beautiful and are very generous on working surface area. 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 décor 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.

The larger partners Library tables look very elegant and offer very generous on working surfaces. Traditionally partners library tables would be used in offices, as a desk or in addition to the desk, for meetings and additional 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 or occasional table as well as desk.

Not enough room for a desk?
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.

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?
