Back to School Series: Secretary Desks Can Store Your Stuff

Secretary desks come in a huge range of sizes and styles - and one place to see some of that range is Laurel Crown Furniture.

Leaman Place Furniture sells Amish handcrafted furniture - including a number of secretary desks.

And this is one of 22 secretary desks from Selva, headquartered in Italy.

Pierre Deux has this Louis XV secretary desk. (Please don't ask me what Louis XV furniture is; I'm taking their word for it!)

And this Louis XV secretaire comes from Brigitte Forestier, based in the Loire Valley.

For those who like painted furniture, Patina has some nice secretary desks.

Jeri - Thanks for posting these! Perfect timing as I'm in the market for desks right now.

I read your site every day, thanks again. Your dependability is soothing!

Glad to help, Nancy. Of course, you can also find secretary desks at places like West Elm - but they aren't as interesting, and I don't figure anyone needs my help to find those!

And I'm delighted to hear you're a daily reader!

I work for Laurel Crown Furniture and happened to stumble upon your blog today. Thank you for showing our secretary desks on your blog. We're glad you found them to be useful.

If any of your readers are interested in our secretaries perhaps we could offer them a humble discount (5%-10%) just let us know.

Laurence, "artisan furniture handmade by expert craftspeople," and people rave about your service - what's not to like? Thank you for your kind offer of the discount.

I just realized you're not too far away from me - and I'm in the market for nightstands. Maybe I'll be in touch in a while, myself!
