This Amazing Antique Desk Is Filled with Hidden Compartments

King Charles Albert  (1798-1849) of Sardinia-Piedmont owned this spectacular writing desk , which is now up for auction by M.S. Rau in New Orleans. A mere $266,500 can get you behind the ultimate power desk for your office.

Antiques expert Bill Rau takes us on a tour of the desk and its many, many secret compartments. Hidden buttons open spring-loaded drawers, as well as a centerpiece that pops out of the top. And if that's not enough, there are even hidden compartments in the chair.

I wonder if Rau has actually discovered all of the secret compartments or if some remain yet undiscovered.

Desks, Dressers and Furniture with Secret Hidden Compartments

Hidden furniture compartments grant you extra peace of mind that your more precious belongings are granted extra protection from wandering hands, whether it be your passport, paperwork, or prized jewelry. Countryside Amish Furniture offers a disguised alcove or drawer in dozens of different desks, dressers, and miscellaneous pieces. What’s more, all furniture is made-to-order, meaning that you can choose the hardwood, stain, and whether to include a suite of offered features (including that secret compartment). 

Explore our hand-picked favorites for office desks and bedroom furniture that offer hidden compartments.

Desks With Hidden Compartments

Each of these desks incorporates a hidden compartment. While the specific location may vary, all disguise the secret drawer by hiding any seaming and excluding any handles. The result is a hidden alcove that offers peak discretion from prying eyes.


Oswin Computer Desk with Hutch - Give your office a touch of luxury with the exquisitely crafted Oswin Computer Desk. Executed with Mission-inspired restraint are visual details like dental inlays, raised panel doors, and an assortment of eye-catching hardware options. In addition to built-in two file cabinets, internally lit drawers, and dovetailed compartments for miscellaneous goods, this solid wood desk offers a centrally located secret compartment.


Akron Secretary Desk - A lithe alternative to the above, this secretary desk incorporates a lid that conceals the desk’s contents (including letter slots and cubbies). However, even passerbyers familiar with secretary desks won’t suspect that the top lifts to reveal a hidden compartment. Measuring 50"W x 22"D x 54"H, the beauty of this desk is no secret, thanks to its eye-catching panels and selection of beautiful hardware options.


Gardner Roll Top Desk - Professors aren’t the only ones in need of secret alcoves, as students may appreciate them, too. Ideal for youngsters and adults alike, this smaller desk delivers a generous number of features such as open base shelving for books, cubbies, and letter holders. Its smooth silhouette will accommodate both contemporary and traditional decor themes, making it a versatile piece that can continually be used as personal tastes evolve. Best yet, this desk’s pencil drawer is purposefully without a handle, making it the user’s hidden secret. 


M arana Roll Top Desk - The beauty of desks with hidden compartments is that they can be positioned almost anywhere. For instance, the Marana Roll Top Desk doesn’t position the secret compartment in the base, top, or body of the work surface. Instead, it is sandwiched by two other drawers, as shown in the photograph. Someone could search this desk for a full hour without finding your hidden passport, money, or valuables! However, there's more to this desk than its secret compartment; its generous range of features and design elements like ebony in-lays make this Arts and Crafts desk a valuable addition to any home office. 


Other examples of desks with hidden compartments:

  • Hermon Small Live Edge Roll Top
  • Walden L-Shaped Desk
  • Sebattus Roll Top Desk 

The above-mentioned desks represent a tiny fraction of what’s available at Countryside Amish Furniture. We suggest you browse our other solid wood designs, particularly those that allow you to easily seal (and lock) the contents such as roll top desks and secretary desks . Plus, for pieces that offer a full suite of features and a generous workspace, check out our bigger wooden desks .


Dressers & Bedroom Furniture With Hidden Compartments

The most common use of a secret compartment within a dresser is to hide jewelry and similarly precious personal items. Luckily, Amish woodworkers designed the below bedroom furniture all with hidden pockets to accommodate this particular need. 

sharp Don't let the name fool you; the Rita-3 Drawer Nightstand has the option of a fourth compartment hidden under a sliding top. But the felt-lined secret alcove isn't the only reason you'll love this furniture piece. The accent metalwork adds an industrial farmhouse flair to any contemporary bedroom, and its solid construction guarantees years of regular, dependable use. Measures 21 7/8"W x 19"D x 29 7/8"H. 


This chest is available to be bought individually or as part of a matching 18-piece bedroom set with multiple styles of beds, dressers, shelves, and accessories from which to choose; many of the coordinating bedroom furniture also includes secret compartments, such as the Charlemagne 4-Drawer Nightstand  and Charlemagne Vanity .

Abilene Chest of Drawers - At first glance, you’d think this mission-style dresser contained three rows of full-length drawers capped with a top row of half-width drawers. You’d be forgiven for not spotting the hidden felt-lined jewelry drawer due to its lack of a handle; laying flush with the body of the furniture, this secret compartment looks like an ordinary plank. Better yet, the Abilene Chest of Drawers can be sold as part of a greater bedroom set that offers other coordinating furniture pieces that also offer hidden compartments, such as the Abilene 3-Drawer Nightstand . 

This chest of drawers offers more than just its secret compartment. You’ll appreciate its sturdy construction with mortise & tenon joinery and dovetailed drawers, as well as the option to customize the design of the handles.

Vincennes 8-Drawer Low Dresser  - This bedroom chest has it all: an optional beveled mirror, full-extension drawers, and two secret compartments lined with felt hidden in the trim. Each element is executed with the superb craftsmanship for which the Amish are famous, enhanced with soft close undermount drawer slides, decorative feet, and more. As a bonus, you can buy it alongside multiple styles of coordinating beds, chests, sideboards, and blanket trunks.

Mount Juliet Split Jewelry Armoire - Your first thought when looking at this unique furniture piece may be how is it even possible to include a hidden compartment amongst all these drawers. The answer is found in the base, camouflaged as a panel positioned right above the legs. The two-toned Mount Juliet Jewelry Armoire will be built with your favorite hardwood and stain combinations, as well as your choice of velvet colors and style of handles.

Other examples of dressers and bedroom furniture with hidden compartments: 

  • Marseille Grand Mirror Dresser
  • Sarasota 1-Drawer Nightstand
  • Seneca Creek Lingerie Chest
  • Mandeville 3-Drawer Nightstand
  • Lunada 3-Drawer Nightstand
  • Glenmora 3-Drawer Nightstand
  • Altamonte Springs Dresser with Mirror

Keep in mind, the above is just a sampling of the many bedroom furniture pieces that include the option of hidden compartments. To explore additional designs, check out our Amish-made nightstands, solid wood lingerie chests, and wooden dressers.


Living Room & Dining Room Furniture With Hidden Compartments

Guests both invited and uninvited will no doubt step foot into your living room. Keep special belongings hidden with these ingenious furniture pieces that all incorporate secret compartments. 

Hillview 2-Door Curio - Eyes will immediately be drawn to the attractively displayed contents perched on the glass shelves in front of a mirrored back and illuminated with LED touch lighting. No one will suspect that the central molding above the bottom alcove contains a secret compartment.

Brisbane China Cabinet Hutch - This Queen Anne hutch offers glass display shelving, roomy soft-close drawers, and generous cabinets for various kinds of dishware. However, discreetly hidden below is a secret compartment without any hardware to indicate its true purpose. It’s easy to make this dining room piece reflective of your personal style by choosing the specific hardwood and stain, as well as the hardware and whether to include the hutch.

Tahoe 3-Door TV Stand - This Arts and Crafts living room stable provides more than mere good looks; it conceals your media collection behind sliding wood and smoked glass doors along with adjustable shelves. However, as you already suspected, there is more to this TV stand than meets the eye, as it provides two hidden drawers behind its right door.

Ridgecrest 3-Piece Media Wall Unit - Available in four different sizes, this comprehensive unit can satisfy all your living room’s storage needs. Open and glass-doored shelving for attractive displays? Check. Decoratively carved columns and detailed molding? Check. Two secret compartments hidden in the furniture’s sides? Check!

Secrets of an escritoire

In an early 19th century writing desk, also known as a secretary or escritoire, conservators have recently discovered long-forgotten secrets in hidden compartments which no one knew were there.

secret writing desk

As realms of personal privacy, such writing desks were often constructed with secret compartments. But in this case, recent conservation work uncovered further concealed spaces behind the ones that were already known.

The newly discovered compartments are hard to access. To get at them you have to

  • Open the middle door
  • Pull out a drawer
  • Press a device on the underside

2. On the other side, there is a unit with tiny drawers.

3. In the wooden casket, the conservators found two cardboard boxes containing delicate objects made of hair and a bead necklace.

4. The drawer unit contained further beads and two keys.

These items are probably not as old as the desk itself. The last family to own the writing desk bought it in the late 19th century. Even so, it seems that someone in the family had something to hide!

In 2022, the escritoire and its secrets will be on display in the new National Museum.
