Desks… A Possession of Worth

In early America, only people of means owned desks. Desks expressed the individual style and personality of their owners. They also indicated wealth. As is the case today, desks were a multipurpose piece of furniture used for writing and book-keeping. They were used as file cabinets, book cases, safes and general catch-alls. As modern-day people of means, you can use our 18th-century replicas to house your computers, phones and facsimile machines. We offer custom-made desks or you can choose from the desks below.
