Secretary desks have a particularly classy and elegant appeal. In the past, they have often been ornate pieces of furniture that can dominate a room, featuring cabinet space or display space, as well as a writing surface. Contemporary secretary desks can be similarly dramatic, or slightly smaller.

Secretary desks often have a number of small compartments in a cabinet above the writing surface. Some of these are particularly small, meant to hold pens, or a checkbook; others can be large enough to hold books. In some cases, there are open cabinets or cabinets with glass doors which can be used to display small treasures.
