Danish secretaries were the rage in the 1950's and 60's due to the high degree of functionality. Featuring large drawers on the bottom and smaller drawer on top, the idea was to allow people to expand their storage space with great design. Additional features included a pull out desktop for working or to be used as a dressing table given the hidden pull out mirror.
With the design flexibility, the secretary works as a desk, dressing table, dresser, entryway piece or dining room storage. This allows for a lifetime of use as the secretary can be moved around the house based on changing needs.
