The bureau is a constructible settlement object and container in Fallout 4.


The bureau is a tall standing cabinet with ornately designed feet and mouldings. The upper half of the unit has four shelves and the lower section has 4 drawers, the bottom two stretch the length of the unit and the upper sit side by side, taking up half the width.

The upper shelves can be used to display objects and the player character is free to pick up items from it. As with all containers, the bureau can also be activated to store items directly inside it.


The bureau is located under Furniture → Containers in the workshop.
