Whether recreating the long-lost art of letter writing or working from home, the right desk can make all the difference in productivity or organization. Writing desks were first introduced in the 16th century. Since then, they’ve taken on many shapes and sizes to suit an array of spaces. At Laurel Crown, you can create your own custom desk by collaborating with our specialty design department. Our skilled craftsmen build antique reproductions from the Biedermeier, Chippendale, Colonial, French Provincial, Victorian, and other eras, but we can also mix and match motifs or embellishments from several periods to create a unique statement piece for your home. Contact us today to learn more about our custom home office desks.
Any custom writing desk in the Chippendale or Queen Anne styles will typically feature ball-and-claw feet, but a custom office desk built in the Federal, Sheraton, or Empire styles will usually include neoclassical motifs or distinct veneers for an elaborate appeal. If your custom secretary desk won’t be used as frequently, you can easily get away with elaborate and opulent ornamentation. Victorian-style custom home office desks look especially sophisticated with contrasting veneers. We proudly provide oak, pine, walnut, cherry, rosewood, and other stains, so you can match other woods within your home.
Design a custom desk today and enjoy a broad range of options:
- Specify the ideal dimensions to suit any unique space
- Take your design a step further by adding a custom finish or wash
- Option to build furniture “raw” without finishing for more modern appeal
