Why Choose A Secretary Desk

A secretary style desk is a great space saver. They are especially convenient for small rooms or apartment living. Secretaries are one of the most common antique desk styles, which have been reproduced for home use over the last hundred years evolving to keep up with technology.

The secretary desk, called a bureau in Europe, first appeared during the 17th century. Basically, a secretary is a tall piece of furniture containing a hinged desktop. The area concealed by the pull down top often has drawers and shelving for desk supplies. It is often topped with a bookcase, which may or may not be closed with doors. The bottom of the secretary will traditionally have drawers or a cabinet for additional storage.

A secretary is a classy way to conceal your desk if you need to place it in a high traffic area, such as a living room or foyer or if you need to place your desk in your bedroom. You just pull over a chair and pull down the drop desk and you are set to work.

Overall, consider a secretary desk if you are looking for a conceled work area or have limited space. Visit for more information and to see the large selection of secretary desks available.
