Unfortunately, this is an antique. It actually used to be a flat grand piano and was converted to a desk.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Integrate floor-to-ceiling shelves. If your study will house plenty of books, try practical, built-in, floor-to-ceiling shelving, which feels true to the Victorian era. A library ladder also looks authentic and hints at a well-used book collection.

The shorter ladder might be better for the home; less intrusive, ostentatious.
