Writers around the world have desks from which they work. Some antique secretary desk is a little more than a box that sits on a person’s knee supporting either a notepad or a laptop. In home office, writers want a room set aside for a single purpose: to write. Antique writing desks are a popular choice among writers. But they are also a popular choice for homeowners who want to add a sense of antiquity to the hall or study of their home.
The features of antique writing desks vary and are usually different by their size. The smaller patterns fit well in a hall and serve as furniture to admire, but not use. The larger ones serve specific functions. For example, some have cubbyholes at the top to sort mail. Others have similar compartments, but sports doors that close as each department works differently. Some are no bigger than a TV tray in size and function as an organizer for writers who want to lounge while they write.
Imagine, if you want, a home office that is only for writers in you. Now imagine that space is occupied with a piece of history where the written word was the only form of documentation. Its design, the shape of the top, the compartments that distinguish needed documents and supplies, leave an impact on the user who can inspire her writing. On the other hand, the same antique desk can leave the effect of fear, as the viewer takes a trip back to the era of the antique desk.
