Finding a space for our antique school desks

The use of antique school desks either as useable pieces of furniture or decorative items doesn’t have to be restricted to a child’s bedroom or playroom. While most of our antique school desks are super cute, sweet and stylish all at the same time, the antique desks and chairs found in our collection can also be used to create or consolidate a cutting edge scheme elsewhere within your home. In the dining room, our larger vintage and antique school desks can double as a compact but cosy and creative dining table.

You can embrace the old school vibe in the lounge, too, with some of our desks sporting shorter legs and able to work successfully as quirky and utterly on-trend shabby chic coffee tables. Those looking to go more industrial with their look won’t be disappointed to hear that our old school desks range features a number of raw and rugged items that would complement the exposed brickwork and bare metals that are synonymous with this style.

In addition to choosing from a range of styles to pay homage to your own interior design look, some of our old school desks come complete with handy features that make life easier, even in the modern day. Among our listings you may find a pair of vintage French single school desks. These desks not only look great and function well as lamp tables, their height can be adjusted for ultimate convenience and comfort. This extremely versatile item delivers the practicality that every family home needs, with kids and adults alike able to enjoy this vintage wonder for work or play.
