Hand crafted for us by a small workshop in England, this writing table/desk embodies the quality and appearance buyers of bespoke English furniture have come to expect over the last 300 years. From the gold-tooled leather to the rich, hand-rubbed finish with subtle distressing, this handsome table would be a stunning addition to any home.
Can be special-ordered in 60" x 36" size, or any size in between that and stock size.
Crossed Sabre Leg Writing Table
A three piece, tan leather surface with tooling and gilding is the starting point for this 3 part pedestal desk in walnut burl. Classic touches abound in the appearance and construction of this handsome desk. A nod to modern desk use includes a locking file drawer while antiquity is addressed with the applied moulding on the sides.
Walnut Pedestal Desk
This Regency style writing table/desk with a tooled saddle leather top and beaded edge has three functioning drawers on one side and three false drawers on the other. Supported by turned, fluted legs on brass casters, this desk is beautifully proportioned and styled in such a way as to bridge several design styles.
Also available in 60” x 36” size

Made for us in England, this table is styled after the William IV period and features a three piece black leather top with gold tooling. Five generous drawers offer ample storage while giving the table a substantial appearance. Supported on turned legs, it offers a handsome profile.
Mahogany Writing Table
This Georgian styled desk with raised panel sides and three piece leather top with gilded tooling is generously sized without being overly dramatic. At 60” by 36”, there is enough surface area to spread out without eating up too much valuable real estate in the room. Swathed in a beautiful flame mahogany, its clean lines bridge the gap between traditional and modern with aplomb.
Mahogany Pedestal Desk
This pedestal desk features a modesty panel as well as two file drawers and 3 piece parchment and green, tooled leather. A center inset gives the normally boxy desk design a clear break from the norm and provides visual interest. It also can be ordered in Mahogany or Walnut Burl.
Yew wood Modesty Panel Desk
This is a custom made, English Yew wood partners writing table/desk with two recessed panel drawers each side. The three piece, gold tooled leather is a dark taupe with a parchment-like finish. Rounded corners and gently curved cabriole legs are finishing details to a classic style writing table.

Mahogany Writing Table with Inlay
This two drawer walnut writing table/desk is made for us by our English cabinetmaker. Using time-honored techniques, this table is created in just the same fashion as it would have been 200 years ago. The leather top has a mottled surface with gold tooling and bordered by a frame of walnut burl. The burl is continued on the drawer fronts where it is framed by a cross banding of straight-grain walnut.
Walnut Writing Table
Created for us by an English cabinetmaker with whom we have been associated for over thirty years, this walnut writing table/desk has classic lines that would blend well in a modern setting. It has a saddle tan leather top with gold tooling, three functional drawers on one side and three false drawers on the other, each in walnut burl with straight walnut banding. The gently tapered legs terminate in brass toecaps and casters.
60" Walnut Writing Table
This classic English style desk features a file drawer in the left-hand pedestal--a modern convenience not found in an antique desk. The three piece, gold tooled tan leather and tulipwood crossbanding set this desk apart from many of today's modern, cookie cutter desks. The applied moulding on the sides and back of each pedestal, as well as the pull-out slides further differentiate this fine desk from the rest of the herd.
