19th Century French Louis Philippe Drop Leaf Mahogany Desk, also known as a writing table, is a great choice where space is at a premium, yet with the leaves provides a surprising amount of surface with the snap of a finger!  The exotic imported mahogany was so prized by French cabinetmakers during the period, that only the finest houses could afford it at the docks.  The relatively unadorned styling of the period is appealing to those who prefer tailored lines, yet the contours of the apron, drawer and cabriole legs lend a style flair that is truly beautiful.

Circa 1850s
