A bureau can come in the form of a table normally used for office work, or as a chest of drawers with a suitable writing surface on top. A typical writing bureau features a folding writing surface. Alternatively, you can find roll top bureaus in which the top rolls into the bureau to reveal the writing surface.


The number of drawers and shelves can vary considerably. Add some old world charm to any given space, and work stylishly.
