Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms, Dickens desks, bankers desks, roll top desks, Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers, small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces, some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
As we continue to unleash the architectural function, form and styles of the most common desk variations produced, let’s examine the designs of the following writing desks: Bible Box, Rolltop, Desk and Bench, Desk on a Chest, Desk on a Frame, Moore Desks, Cubicle, Davenport, Escritoire, Fall Front Desk, Partners Desk and Chinese Altar Table.
