Antique Library Tables or Boardroom Tables were a real statement piece in a large Victorian Library or office, they usually have leather tops and stand on turned legs with castors. The Library was where businessmen or the gentleman of the house would keep his books, paperwork and also where business was conducted. As this was conducted around the Library table, it was very often a luxury item of furniture and made to impress, so would have been very well built in quality solid woods such as Mahogany, Oak or sometimes in more rare timbers such as Rosewood. They can be very useful if you need plenty of leg room, as they stand on legs with no drawers down either side like the traditional pedestal desk so you have lots of room under the working surface. As they also quite often stand on castors, they can be easily moved around a room. The Library table can come as the smaller single lather top writing table but also as a partners design, with finished frieze drawers on either side, enabling two people to work on them at the same time.
