Castilian Spanish Bureau Bookcase

This a stunning piece of furniture packed full of character and splendidly practical with a versatile range of uses and location in your home. Crafted in the style of Spanish Castilian furniture the bureau has an exterior of a multitude of carved wood panels giving it a striking aesthetical appeal. 


The traditional bureau is now commonly used as a place of working casually on a laptop or tablet, as well as the original use for scribing letters and other literature. This could be the perfect companion as more of us are working from home, but need to utilise our living areas economically. The drop down writing flap has a spacious surface and consists of a mechanism where two support arms create a solid platform to work on or.  There are a series of cubby holes inside the bureau, where you can store your mail, additional paperwork and stationery. It has a drawer and a double-doored cupboard underneath with a central shelf, perfect for storing files and essential items. The top of the bureau consists of another cupboard area, where two curvilinear doors open to reveal a central shelf and base for more storage of books, crockery and other 'hidden away' items.

This bureau has been lovingly restored by meticulously removing the original darker finish and then applying a clear lacquer to add both protection and durability. The varnish also accentuates the beautiful colouring and patterning of the wood as well as highlighting the fine craftsmanship of this bureau. The unit is also finished with rustic hinges and bar pegs, to close the doors to further add to the style and design.

Full of  Castilian distinctiveness, this piece is sure to be a talking point when family and friends come round and would stand proudly in any modern or more classical surroundings.

Due to the unique and vaired nature of the furniture we work with each of our stores carries individual, one-off pieces. This means that you are getting a piece of furniture like no other, but it also means we can't just take one off the shelf and ship to you from a convenient central warehouse location. We work with specialist furniture couriers to get furniture to you in the most cost-effective, reliable manner possible, however as a small charity we are unable to absorb these costs into our day-to-day running costs. A breakdown of the shipping costs is included below.

All of our items are be available to collect during normal business hours, free of charge, from the specific store location indicated on the product, and checkout pages.
