Eastman Secretary - Standard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 216.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I am so pleased with my desk. It is perfect for a small space. I am amazed how much it holds and the writing surface is roomy enough for my computer and bill paying! It is so well made - a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this desk! This desk is the perfect size for a corner in our family room to hold my laptop & other devices. I like that I can create a charging station in the desk through the grommet in the back & close the door to hide all the wires! The file drawer is wonderful at holding day to day files, especially the children's school papers, activity info & coupons. It's the perfect desk for light use. The construction is surprisingly solid for the price. It arrived well packaged. Lots of material to recycle. I am very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! We love our new secretary desk. Beautiful wood and craftmanship, sturdy, and very functional. And the best thing was that we didn't have to put any of it together ourselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact workstation that looks great I love this unit. I've had my eye on it for a long time. The children are grown and gone, so I recently bought the Eastman Secretary and placed it in one of their bedrooms, which functions as a guest suite now. It's a very functional unit, offers plenty of work and storage space and includes an interior power strip. For guests, it serves as a makeup/charging station and the drawers are deep enough to serve as dresser space. I love that I can close it to hide away papers or hair dryers. Clearly, its features, combined with its size, lend themselves to many uses. It's a fabulous and versatile unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely piece of furniture! I'd been looking for the perfect desk for a year, on the internet, in catalogs, and in furniture stores. I wanted to find something not too "desky" looking as my work station is in my bedroom. I finally found the Eastman Secretary on the web and immediately knew it was the one. This is a very well designed, well made piece and has made organizing my family and personal life so much easier and pleasurable. One of the requirements I had for a desk was that it not be too deep or wide, as I had a particular space for it. The Eastman takes up very little room, yet it has so much storage space! I love the small drawers inside for pencils, and stationary supplies, yet the interior is big enough for a small lamp. My computer fits perfectly with room to spare. The file drawer has been a real space saver, as I've been able to move all important files into it and eliminate an ugly file box. The two other drawers hold computer supplies and current works in progress, like picture projects and small art work. In all it has reduced my clutter significantly all the while standing as a beautiful piece of furniture. I will treasure it always and pass it on to my children someday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent piece This piece fits great in our living room. We house all our electronics inside and the drawers are good extra storage. Added benefit - if it's messy, you just close it up! Better that I imagined it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece. A lot of function packed into a well designed piece of furniture. I'd have liked a lower desk surface but a 24" (seat height) chair works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and High Quality We bought this for one of the bedrooms in our vacation home. It offers up the usefulness of a desk to hide away a laptop, papers, and files without looking like "work". The black finish is slightly worn to reveal a bit of the light/ white wood beneath which pairs nicely with any style. We purchased locally a reclaimed wood and iron piano stool to adjust to the height of our guests while using the desk which addresses the height issue other reviewers mentioned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our need I needed a desk for my High School daughter and we did not have much space in her room. This is perfect, she loves it and t will be a great piece in the future to decorate her home. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very well made, high quality and really useful very well designed and the wood is high quality (I ordered the Belgian oak) and it is full of useful drawers, file holders, and cubbies and fits into a Manhattan apartment hallway. I looked and looked and this is by far the best I found and it is very well priced. It also arrived quickly and the men who delivered were incredibly helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a wonderful addition to my home! Previosly, I had a fine old "roll-top" desk and, in planning a move from my home to an apartment, I realized I would need a desk more suitable for the new environment. I gave the "roll-top" desk to a neighbor, who restored it beautifully, and - when I received your product - I could not have been more pleased! Everyone who has seen it thinks it's great. Keep up the good work. God bless you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We use our cream colored secretary in a little nook of the eating area of our kitchen. It is a perfect desk for that area but can be closed to look neat when necessary. My only complaint is that it came with a TON of styrofoam which seemed a bit excessive. The piece was in perfect condition, however, so it may have been necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and functional I would recommend this to anyone, it is space saving without losing it's grandeur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I am really picky, but I couldn't find a single flaw in this lovely piece of furniture. I had searched for months for a desk like this with these dimensions due to space requirements. The Eastman secretary more than met my expectations - from wood finish to fittings and design. A++ Delivery was excellent as well. Great job Ballard!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty, functional & well built. I was looking for storage for desk/office/computer supplies plus a place to put hanging files - this desk met every requirement. Based upon the measurements provided it looked to fit perfectly in a nook in our family room so when I received an e-mail from BD alerting me to a sale I bought it immediately. It arrived very quickly, in excellent condition - yes, LOTS of packing material as mentioned in other reviews but worth it. For a compact piece it holds a great deal - everything I needed to store is in the desk and I still have space left. I didn't see this mentioned in other reviews but inside the desk were supplies to anchor it to a wall which was recommended on the pouch containing the supplies. It was an easy 15 minute job but it would be nice if this were mentioned in the product info. The filing drawer is on metal glides - perfect - and the rubbed cream color is true to the title. Completely happy with this purchase and feel it's an excellent value for the price paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect piece for kitchen files and paperwork. This secretary works in every way as a nice side piece in the breakfast nook. It is well built; all the bottom drawers open smoothly, and the mechanism that operates the drop desk portion looks like it will last. The cubby holes are convenient to reach with the desk open and the drawers are handy as well. Due to the heavy duty packing, it arrived without a scratch or ding anywhere. It was helpful to read the other comments since the color is definitely cream rather than white - so I knew what to expect. Very impressed with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for! My new Eastman Secretary is the perfect desk for a small space. It has loads of storage and fits in beautifully with my antiques. I am especially impressed with the quality of workmanship! A wonder piece at a great price! I'm thinking of buying one for my daughters room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I love this secretary. It is the perfect size for the space I needed it to fit. The quality is great and the color is as pictured for the old world brown. It was packaged wonderfully and all we did was take the box off and move it into the area. I actually use it as a vanity in my bathroom for storage and a place to put on my make-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little desk! it actually is a good sized desk for a bedroom or corner in a living room. fold down drawer allows for a computer to sit on top and for smaller papers and desk items to be located inside. Drawers under have room for paper and files (legal or letter). great find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Desk This is an excellent desk for a small space, and is surprisingly spacious and functional. Having recently stopped working I needed a desk at home, as I used to do all my personal business at work. This fits the bill perfectly, with plenty of room for supplies, files, etc. It is also attractive and of nice quality. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this desk!!! I ordered this desk in an effort to organize my files and bills in a location in my house that was centrally located and easily accessible with papers out of sight. This little desk fits great in any unused corner and is a beautiful piece of furniture. The configuration of the interior of the desk gives many choices for organizing. This desk also has the capacity to hold quite a bit of files and assorted paperwork. In fact I ended up with an extra empty drawer. It was shipped to me in perfect condition and was very fast to set up. The construction of the desk is impressive and the color I ordered was true to the catalog and website. I have ordered other furniture from Ballard and have always been 100% satisfied. Thank you for your superior products and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect desk This desk is perfect in everyway; size, fileing drawer, extra drawers for envelopes, paper, etc. and it closes to hide your mess if you are not done. The drawers open w/ a glide and you can not slam them. It is built very sturdy. Great quality.
