Then you have desks which are also functional but which look great into the bargain – this is such a desk. Lots of storage, a huge writing area with a sumptuous decorative leather working surface and thr added advantage of being a tru partners desk – able to accomodate two people, one either side.

The cupboards and drawers are all fitted with locks and keys are provided – these are the original locks and keys, a rare find these days.
