The Desk as an Antique

Itís hard to believe that something that is as functional and practical as a desk wasnít thought of by inventors or at least thought important by inventors until the 1600s.  And then, they thought so little of them that they werenít really invented as much as repurposed from something these found more functional, a bureau.  The first desks created were actually bureaus with a sloping top to serve as a writing surface.  It wasnít until many people complained almost one hundred years later about sitting uncomfortably that the designs changed.
