French Styled Louis Desks

French 19th Century Louis XV Style Bureau Plat 100x100 French Styled Louis DesksThere’s literally hundreds of different desks available in today’s market. So which one will you choose? If you are like me, you are grown past the stage of throw away furniture that features composites and plastics, and are opting for quality furniture. Once you see antiques, you will never go back, because they are built to last.

Most antiques are hand crafted, than the modern day practices with mass production. French Louis Desks are the most glamorous choice out there in comparison to most other desks. They often feature rich wood veneers, and sometimes the rare desks feature a number of rich exotic woods an outstanding detailed look.

The finest ormolu fixtures grace french Louis desks outlining their delicate shape. Roll-top desks (bureau à cylindre) and (fauteuil de bureau) feature a sense of privacy for the interior decorator at heart which is opting for a show room atmosphere. Most french desks can come with detailed interior compartments, and lockable drawers. Leather lined writing surfaces are another feature you will only find on antiques, as today’s market doesn’t take the time in the details that you will find in antiques. Some of the most elegant and rare french desks can be found with custom marble tops.  Check out some luxurious examples below
