Modern desks reflect contemporary styles. Some are little more than writing surfaces with, perhaps, one drawer for the storage of writing materials. Others contain a number of drawers (sometimes accommodating hanging files), platforms designed to support typewriters or computer keyboards, and other elements that reflect modern work and home needs. See also bureau; secretary.
Many desk styles were produced in the 18th century. Small, portable "ladies’ desks" became popular in England. In France, where the habit of writing little notes became something of a social mania, the variety was remarkable. The cylinder top and rolltop were among the popular desks of the period; many featured ingenious mechanical devices. The cylinder top was a rigid, quarter-circle shutter covering the interior. The top could be slid back into the body of the desk while, at the same time, a writing surface might be drawn forward.
