Friday, 9 December 2011


Price      Lets be honest - price is often a consideration.  Antique Desks offer fantastic value for money at the moment - in many instances they are now significantly cheaper than modern reproductions - see examples at
Quality   Fine antique furniture was made to last - substantial and robust, a well restored antique desk will last (another) life time

Investment?   Not necessarily - BUT - a quality antique desk will certainly retain a good proportion of its value better than a new piece of furniture.  If you choose carefully and choose a stylish piece (perhaps one that is also marked by a well known cabinet marker) then it will certainly be sought after by future generations

A Piece of History.   A fine antique desk will have been used by many people over its lifetime.  Just possibly it will also have traceable history to interesting users in the past. It may have markers that directly point to a specific period or maker.  It will certainly have character and style, and be unique

Style.    Whether you prefer Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Arts & Crafts or Art Deco.  Whether you prefer classic mahogany, mellow oak or figured rosewood or walnut, there will be a style to suit you and your home or office. See examples at

Practicality.  These pieces of furniture were made for working!  Historically people used them extensively whether at home for day to day correspondence or their workplace.  They are generally a thoroughly practical proposition for today's world of home working and computers

Size Matters!     Antique desks come in all shapes and sizes - from ladies small writing desks to full sized office partners desks - see examples at

Period Features.    A Georgian Desk for a Georgian House, a Victorian Desk for a Victorian house, an Edwardian desk for an Edwardian house - match your desk to your home and/or office in an authentic manner

"The Full Monty"    With care it is possible to find a full suite of antique office furniture that matches your fine antique desk.  Antique writing and library tables, antique bookcases, antique desk and library chairs, antique reading tables and stands - our clients have bought all these extra pieces to match their desk - see stock at

Finally.    Why buy a reproduction when you can have the real thing at a great price and  a desk that will last a lifetime !?!
