Why choose Georgian desks?

A Georgian desk is a worthy addition to any home. It will meet all your practical needs, and be stunning yet not distracting. Made from wonderful solid woods such as mahogany and walnut, Georgian desks are exquisitely built and come with a level of craftsmanship just not found in furniture designed and built today. As there was only very basic machinery available to the Georgians, a Georgian desk would have been crafted by hand, with love and care.

Some of the greatest novelists of our time would have sat at a Georgian desk, and would have been inspired by the other furnishings around them from the period. Jane Austen, Mary Shelley and Henry Fielding penned their internationally acclaimed works at a desk just like the ones available in this collection.

The Georgian period was an incredible age for the arts – and that included furniture design. Styles of Georgian desk can vary from the sturdy and sensible all the way to the very flamboyant and romantic. The popularity of romantic arts was seen in the works of poets more than anywhere else, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Wordsworth and John Keats finding fame during this era. Art and design was a very important aspect of Georgian life, and you will see that in our collection of Georgian desks. Working at a desk similar to some of these authors and poets will undoubtedly give you clarity and inspiration – if they could pen masterpieces on a desk like this, then you can too.
