The word “bureau” isn’t one that we tend to use these days. However, in the past, the word bureau was more commonly used than desk. The word originates from Latin – the word “burrus” which meant red. This was because bureaus during ancient times had a red fabric covering. Vintage bureaus are very popular today with all kinds of homeowners with a passion for beautiful aesthetics, style and quality paired with functionality.
