Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about secretary desks and we’ve got loads of them.
In official terms — if you can call them that — secretary desks feature a base of drawers with a desk on top that can fold away behind a hinged door. A doored bookcase tops the desk. Often, simple hide-away desks are also called secretary desks. In any case, we’re finding them everywhere and they are quite convenient for small spaces.
