A small desk with a sloping lift lid hinged at the back which acts as the writing surface. Under the lid is a storage area for office papers and pens. To the rear of this compartment are eight small pigeon hole drawers. Down the sides are tiers of 4 drawers. The from of the desk is decorated with carved cabriole legs on button shaped feet. This desk or bureau was also known as Devonport Desk and some believe it was also originally designed for use on military campaigns hence it small compact size for use in a ships cabin. For a small desk there is certainly a lot of storage space! Option to have a leather insert on the lid.

It was well worth the wait. Andy and Isobel were both very helpful with the order from start to finish. Thank you soooo much. I will definitely order again from ADK furniture.”

They are shipped with copious amounts of packing material which ensures there is no damage or marks whatsoever on the journey. Every item is exactly as described and look more impressive than the pictures when you have them in place. I will always check here before I want any items of furniture in the future because the service and quality is second to none. and well worth the wait. This furniture will last you a lifetime.”
“Absolutely wonderful. The sleigh bed and desk we ordered from ADK exactly what we had been looking for. The style was perfect, the u are both beautifully worked. The quality is superb. The bed is really solid and an once assembled feels like it will stand the test of time. The same for the desk. There was a 16 week lead time and ADK kept to this schedule even during the lockdown. So we completely happy with our experiences with ADK.”

“Dear Isobel and Andy, Just to let you know that we have assembled the desk which was delivered on Monday. It is beautiful and well worth the wait. We are so pleased. They have done a superb job. Fantastic quality. Thank you for the great service.”
Revd Dr William M. Schweitzer, All Saints Presbyterian Church
“It has been a pleasure to work together with Andy to accomplish our goals for our Grade I listed church building. We needed a large pulpit, communion table and linking church chairs all with bespoke designs to be made in solid Honduran Mahogany but within a modest budget–a combination that other companies considered impossible. Well, AKD delivered exactly what we wanted: on time and on budget. They are the best kept secret in the UK furniture market.”
The size not quite right? Prefer a different carving style? Or maybe you have a bespoke build in mind but love this design as much as we do.
