A Carlton House desk is a specific antique desk form within the more general bureau gradin form. This form of desk is supposed to have been 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. Drawings of this type of desk were presented by Hepplewhite in his noted design book, the Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide, and by Thomas Sheraton in his own book of designs, The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing Book, thus ensuring its popularity.
