The Timeless Elegance of Secretary Desks

Antic / rustic

These are the closest to the original French Escritoire stylewhile maintaining its 18th century aura – baroque and lavish in appearance and crafted with passionate complexity.  Their outstanding properties:

  • Mainly solid wood construction
  • Elaborate carving and inlay with mainly decorative shapes
  • Paw legs with outwardly curved shape
  • Rich high gloss wood
  • Decorative metal handles, buttons, bolts and rivets

They integrate well in a like-minded environment – an ornate sofa, mirror, photo frame, and entertainment unit are a few examples.

Antique / rustic secretary desks are in spacious maisonette apartments or independent houses in the middle of one opulent culture.  If you’re in that league, you’ll pay for one of these pieces.


This style is characterized by Bas-relief hand carving and natural wood in glossy and semi-glossy shine.  The slanting top and roll top products belong to this traditional style.  They can belong to medium-sized apartments and independent houses.  Combine a traditional desk with a hard floor – preferably wood or vinyl, dry flowers, and sepia-colored pictures above the desk.

Mid century

This furniture era has that Scandinavian footprint of simple shapes, angular rather than curved, with no or minimal surface decoration and ornamentation and sloping legs.  The tradition has been in secretariats as functional and feature-rich style with calm elegance.  You will notice it for its simplicity.  Starting from the dark wood surfaces, this style successfully experiments with lighter tones, even white and ivory tones.  Medium-sized homes are best for this style.  Ceramic flower vases with white lilies, an upholstered sofa in white or pastel, flowing curtains made of light nets and an elegant chandelier – that is the idyllic imagery for the style of the mid-century.

Modern and contemporary

That is a independent American desk style that breaks away from European influence.  It’s cosmopolitan, bold, and liberal, and isn’t afraid to experiment with colors, shapes, shapes, and materials.  Modern and contemporary secretary desks spoil you with functional comfort and an eye-catching appearance.  A white wooden frame with a bright orange desk and black drawers or black powder-coated aluminum legs that support a white work surface with olive green drawers – “Hybrid” defines the American modern and contemporary style.

Whichever desk you buy, complement it with a deep-sunk black sofa and lounge chair.  We Americans love comfort after a day on the desk.


These desks are created to provide Maximum function value in a small space so that they fulfill their purpose within a limited mileage.  Light, informal, even casual, yet efficient, they adapt to any workspace – be it an office, home, or commercial facility.

The design orientation of Urban Desks is towards vertical vertical and horizontal surfaces with angles and sharp edges.  And they’re usually bright. They look attractive in a light and airy setting with pastel walls, planters, and a fireplace.
