Here’s a nice example of furniture designed with a special use in mind.  A “rent table” is characterized by a drum top with seven (one for each day of the week) locking drawers in which a landlord could collect and file rents.   

This lovely piece is offered in the inventory of Chappell & McCullar in San Francisco--a beautiful and friendly shop worth visiting on your next trip to the Bay Area.  In the meantime, check out their website here.
