Why Antique Desks?

It’s undeniable that desks are both a functional and a decorative aspect of contemporary workspaces. Whether you work from home, have a study or work in an office, your desk is the most visible thing people notice when they enter your room. Imagine the impact that a desk with a richly tooled leather top writing surface, brass handles, a carved frieze drawer, with a uniquely moulded edge, featuring lion heads, hand-carved from solid wood like walnut, oak, mahogany with inlaid rosewood or satinwood banding would make. You'll be the only one on your block or office complex to have a piece of antique furniture like this. You can't just go down to your local furniture store and find a desk like this just anywhere. The best antique desk is the one that makes you feel like a king or queen while writing your letter or memoirs. Besides, it’s where you’ll spend most of your work hours; you might as well turn it into a place that’ll give you joy with its ergonomic and aesthetic qualities.

How to Identify Original Antique Desks

Identifying original desk antiques can be a tricky process. We recommend you look out for nicks and cuts on the bottom, side, and back of the desk’s drawers and frames. The presence of these means the antique furniture was shaped with a plane or drawknife, which was popular then. You can also look at the dovetailing in the drawers. Irregular dovetailing, particularly with very narrow joints can also be a good indicator of a quality hand-carved antique original desk made by a highly skilled cabinet maker. Occasionally, these cabinet makers even hide secret compartments in their desks. It's up to you to find them!

Best Antique Desks in the Market

When it comes to choosing the best antique desks for sale, we always recommend you go for quality and durable desks made from woods like oak, walnut, mahogany. Forget about plywood--you won't find that here!

Antique Desks FAQ

01 How do you date an antique desk?

Examine the drawer's bottom, sides, and back for nicks or cuts; if the wood has nicks or cuts, it was most likely cut with a plane, spokeshave, or drawknife. A piece with straight saw marks is also likely to be old. If there are round or arc-shaped marks on the wood, it was cut with a circular saw, which was not widely used until around 1860.

02 Are old desks valuable?

The value of an antique writing desk varies greatly based on its condition, age, and quality. You might be able to do a quick antique furniture value lookup if you take the time to look it over, but a professional appraisal will always give you a much more accurate impression of your desk's value.

03 Where should I put my home office furniture?

One of the most typical places to install one is behind the sofa, but it can also be used in place of a console table beside a window or along a wall. If you're concerned about clutter, get a desk with built-in cabinets or construct storage and hide your office supplies and documents with beautiful baskets or boxes.

04 Should my desk face the wall?

Some people like to have their desk facing the wall because it reduces distractions by preventing them from looking out the window or watching people pass by. Depending on the size of your workspace, facing the wall may enclose you in a cramped, claustrophobic nook.

05 Should my antique desk be near the window?

Why working from a home office workstation with a window reduces productivity: The sun is brighter outside than on your computer screen (even on a cloudy day), making it more difficult to view the screen and creating eye strain and headaches. The view outside your window can be distracting, causing you to lose focus or daydream.
