Carlton House Desks were designed in the 18th Century by George Hepplewhite for the Prince Of Wales, who later became George IV, named after Carlton House which was the residence of the Prince Of Wales.

Carlton House desks or writing tables are designed with small drawers and slopes which form a “U” shape around the user, as opposed to other desks. There are drawings of this type of desk in Hepplewhite’s famous design book “The cabinet maker and upholsterers guide”
