Colonial-style furniture has a deep-rooted history in America, one that stretches back to the early 17th century. Though many of the pieces produced throughout the American Colonial era were casual, country-style furnishings, some were much more symmetrical and traditional in form. Laurel Crown's antique drop front desk strikes the perfect balance between those distinct styles of the past, providing the perfect excuse to sit down and craft a handwritten letter or jot down all your noteworthy ideas. Each Colonial secretary desk is carved, sanded, and finished completely by hand.
Our talented craftsmen employ the finest plantation-grown Honduran mahogany to build every antique slant top desk we painstakingly reproduce. Beloved by furniture makers for the last several centuries, South American mahogany boasts a beautiful brown hue that tends to darken over time and a pleasing straight grain that looks especially magnificent when polished with our signature satin semi-gloss finish. The lid drops down to form a discreet writing space and reveals several small compartments, pigeon holes, and a prospect door for storing important paperwork.
What's more, our antique drop front desk can be customized:
- Add an antiqued, distressed, or white-washed finish
- Request a custom paint color to match your office décors
- Change the stain to match cherry, oak, walnut, or other wood tones
We can also reproduce an utterly unique antique reproduction for your home through photographs, dimensions, and other specifications. In fact, customizing your own antique slant top desk is simple and straightforward. Simply submit your project proposal online or contact us to get the design process started.
