Antique Library Tables or Boardroom Tables were a real statement piece in a large 19th Century Victorian Library or office room. They will usually have leather tops and stand on turned legs with castors. The Library was where the gentleman of the house would keep his books, paperwork and also where business was conducted. Because this was conducted around antique library tables, they were classed as a luxury item of furniture and made to impress. They would have been very well built in high quality solid woods such as Mahogany, Oak or sometimes in more rare timbers such as Rosewood. As they stand on legs with no drawers down either side like the traditional pedestal desk, you have lots of leg room under the working surface. Because they also stand on castors, they can be easily moved around a room. The most sought after is in the partners design, with finished frieze drawers on either side, enabling two people to work on them at the same time.
