What is a Secretary Desk?

Despite its name, a secretary desk is more commonly found in homes than in businesses. The secretary desk's fundamental design consists of a set of drawers topped by a fold-out desk, with a set of shelves or a hutch sitting on top. The basic design is fairly old; preserved antique examples from the 1500s and maybe earlier imply that the desk was commonly used at the period. Many people keep a secretary desk at home to use as a small workplace or a family organizing area. Modern offices tend to use a different styled desk design with more room to spread out and slightly less private storage, but many people keep a secretary desk at home to use as a small workplace or as a family organizing area.
