A Carlton House desk is a specific antique desk form within the more general bureau à gradin form. This form of desk was first designed in the 18th century for the Prince of Wales (who later became George IV) by George Hepplewhite. It is named after Carlton House, which was at the time the London residence of the Prince, and sometimes is also known as a Carlton House writing table.
