    Carlton House deskis a specific antiquedeskform within the more generalbureau à gradinform. This specific form is supposed to have been designed in 1790s for the Prince of Wales (who later becameGeorge IV) byGeorge Hepplewhite. It is named afterCarlton House, which was at the time theLondonresidence of the Prince of Wales. This kind of desk is sometimes also known as a Carlton House writing table.
     
    The desk is like a normal writing table but the small drawers above the surface form a "U" shape around the user instead of being merely set up in front of him as is usual in a typical bureau a gradin. Unlike other types of bureau a gradin the Carlton House desk usually offers no pigeonholes. There are usually small slopes over the two desktop drawers at the left and right ends of the "U" shape.
     
     
    Drawings of this type of desk were presented by Hepplewhite in his famous design book theCabinet Maker and Upholsterers Guideand byThomas Sheratonin his own famous book of designs,The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book, thus ensuring its popularity.
