L' Escritoire Secretary Desk
Hand-carved solid hardwood antique replica is a quality investment in European style & sophistication
Eight cubbies and seventeen drawers—including five secret ones— define this distinctive, solid hardwood secretary that’s a rich blend of French and English period style in a difficult-to-find warm finish. Requiring more than six days to exquisitely hand-carve, it rises on claw-and-ball Chippendale legs towards a yard-wide desktop boasting rope detail and hand-carving on three sides. Quality solid hardwood, authentic metal pulls and a bevy of hidden details make this stunning piece an heirloom for generations to come.

Quality and craftsmenship is horrible It looks very good, on the picture but in reality quality is poor, stain is not completely appliqued, screws are coming thru the joins,some kind of glue all over the desk. October 17, 2014
The product reach my expectations. Nice Product. Smooth Transaction. Excellent shipping April 14, 2014
I love the look of this desk! I'm very happy with my new desk. I bought it as a Christmas present for myself and was very excited when I opened the box. It is a very sturdy piece of furniture and it arrived without any scratches. All I had to do was put the legs on which was very easy. My nieces had fun finding the 5 hidden drawers. The desk fits in beautifully with all my antique furniture and is large enough to do simple crafts on. January 3, 2014
great quality table Highly recommend! I was looking for a small desk for myself in our bed room with traditional style furniture. This table is absolutely best addition. The color is the same as on the picture, they did a good job there. Arrived in one box. Very very easy to put together. My husband usually do things like that but this time he wasn't home and it took 10 min for me to get it together. The only thing to know is it is heavy. Good quality and beautiful color, just use sliders or someone's help to move it. Excellent costumers service too! Answered all my questions, very helpful. Overall I wish every purchase on-line is as pleasant and easy as this one. THANK YOU!!! October 27, 2013
Desk & Framed Paintings We were very surprise of the quality of our desk. Everything was about this show piece exceeded our expectation. We can't wait for the additional furniture/items to arrive. We also ordered three (3) paintings as well which were excellent! We'll be back! September 12, 2013
Beautiful, but... This desk is a story of pros and cons. Perhaps it's best to review by listing them. Pros: Excellent packaging. Despite some box dings in shipping, all parts were intact. Excellent aesthetic design. It's just a beautiful piece. Excellent parts fit. All drawers fit without being too loose or tight. Cubbies and hidden compartments. A pleasant surprise! Cons: The holes for the bolts weren't deep enough. I had to use a drill to deepen them. The wood is not a superior grade. Think kit furniture. The stain was incompletely applied. A furniture touchup pen is needed. Despite three bolts each, the leg joins are a structural weak point. DO NOT drag on carpet. Lift to move. As the stain is light and the wood is a little soft, I am going to get a piece of Lexan cut to fit the writing surface. I would still recommend this desk, but buyer beware - this is not a $2,000 piece of furniture. At its regular price I would rate it as average value. It was a good value at the sale price though.

Very pleased with this desk! I received this desk after a long wait from the time that I ordered it, however it was worth the wait, it is a beautiful and well made piece of furniture. I love it. September 18, 2012
Looks better in the catalogue I was very excited about buying this desk. However, I found out when I received it that it was really quite useless as a secretary desk--the cubbyholes and drawers are too odd-sized for envelopes, bills, or anything one wants to do at a desk. It is very top heavy and when I lifted one side slightly to straighten out a wrinkle in the rug, to my shock and amazement, one of the legs broke off . If you buy this desk, make sure you have four strong people around to lift it all straight up in case you need to smooth out any rugs. September 5, 2012
