Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 187 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product was poorly constructed. We brought the table home and assembled. The legs were not straight. We traveled back to the store and back home (50 miles each way) with a replacement only to find the legs would not attach correctly. We made another trip back to the store to return the table and end the ordeal. June 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eastman Secretary Love my secretary. Perfect for a small space. Can't find many similar products to fit into samll space. Wish it had included hanging file folder hardware, and cubbyhole drawers are a little shallow, but I should have anticipated that issue when I needed a narrow depth piece of furniture. Quality is excellent. It was my first Ballard purchase, and I have already ordered another piece. June 12, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Solid piece The piece is solid and seems to be durable. The color is not quite what it appeared to be in the catalog however. Also he height of the pull down desk top is a little higher than a normal desk level which might be a problem if you work at it a long time. The file drawer on the bottom of the unit does not flow easily so has to be pushed hard to close. June 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Desk! It's a great desk, better than expected! It even came all put together...worth the little bit extra in shipping. Love it! June 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this piece This secretary desk is beautiful, well-constructed and arrived in perfect condition. We needed something that wasn't too big for our kitchen and it fits the space perfectly. It's sturdy and we didn't have to put anything together- it arrived in 1 piece. I highly recommend! May 26, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth it I ordered this desk in brown to match my antique bedroom set and it arrived in black and gray even though the box was marked as brown. It looks out of place. The order took much longer to arrive than indicated. The actual desk surface area is crowded. Don't expect to get much more than a laptop on it. After less than a year of use, the bottom drawer will no longer stay shut, but constantly pops open. A lot of money was spent, but the quality just isn't there. This was my first and last order from Ballard. About the only good thing I can say is that the desk will fit nicely into a small space. May 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for being unintrusive! Love it! over packaged - but great once you fight out of the styrofoam sea. Good quality product. It the draws did not pull all the way out - I would have given it 5 stars May 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 19, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by As promised The secretary fit great in the scheme of our office and is versatile and holds more than we had hoped. I would recommend it as an additional piece if you need quality storage for a home office. May 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My wife loved it!! My wife was surprised and pleased with the Eastman desk for her use. The finish is excellent and looked good in the bedroom. She liked the quantity and design of the desk's storage May 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Piece The Eastman Secretary is well built, appropriately finished and is a nice edition to a guest bedroom or apartment/ condo. The drop down front is sturdy and will last. The drawers slide easily and fit well. It was packed and shipped to not arrive damaged. The shipping time was a little more lengthy than we had anticipated, but, the courier was also there when they called and delivered as asked. May 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The desk is very nice. I was very pleased when it arrived as it was fully assembled. That was a great surprise. The desk is well made and looks just like the one on the web. I especially like that you can close it up so that it always looks nice. May 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it!!! This desk is just right for what I wanted. Love the bottom drawer because I can put all our most necesary files and don't need an extra cabinet. And best of all we got it intact, not a scratch in it, perfect!!. May 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what we wanted This desk was perfect for what we were looking for. it fit perfectly into the smaller space we were looking to cover. This was the only one we saw of its kind through a lot of searching. The desk actually has a lot of room for such a small profile. It came with no issues looked great out of the box. Once thing I really like is that it has "feet that it rests on instead of the wood. this made it really easy to maneuver. If I had any minor complaint, it would be that the desk was a little higher than I wanted for the chair I'm pairing it with. April 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Piece This desk is exactly what I have been looking for. I wanted something that had a hanging file drawer which this does. Also I wanted an attractive secretary desk with this feature. This was impossible to find at any local stores. I was so pleased when I saw it at a friends home and she was pleased with it and the way it was shipped. I did not hesitate in ordering if for my self. I was impressed with how well it was packed when it arrived. April 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hide a computer Great piece of furniture! Very sophisticated and sturdy! March 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding! I was looking for a small desk to utilize in one corner of my family room. This desk fit the bill perfectly. I use it daily to check my email on my laptop. I have never ordered furniture online, but was very happy with the result! The delivery went smoothly. The desk was extremely well packaged - no damage at all. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This desk is very solid and has great storage. Everything about this desk is pleasing. It is well built and has an abundance of storage. The bottom file drawer is a great way to organize and have important papers close at hand. Thank you for such a solid and nice looking piece of furniture. I ordered the Grammercy chair and can't wait for it to arrive. March 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased I am very pleased with how well the desk is constructed - it is sturdy and beautiful. The drawers are the perfect size and they open and close easily. Extremely satisfied with this product. March 18, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by great desk If you are looking for a simple small desk with clean lines, this is the desk you've been looking for. It also has a lot of storage and ample room for your files. On top of that close the front and any mess or personal papers are out of sight! March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for a small desk. I really enjoy my new desk. It fits in the small space and I can keep everything on the desk. When company comes over, I just close the front. I also like the way it opens-slowly because of the piston arms on each side. It has class. March 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful piece of furniture! I love my desk but have found it to be too small to have surface for writing or using paper work and having the lap top also on the desk. It is very difficult to get into the drawers when one is working on the desk surface. It does fit perfectly into the small space that I wanted it to fit. I should have realized the difficulties for my use but am still glad that I purchased it. It is also higher than is convenient for a normal desk chair. I realize that 3 drawers would not have fit at a lower height but it is an inconvenience. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful and functional I would recommend this to anyone, it is space saving without losing it's grandeur. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This piece is both functional and beautiful in cream. I chose to put this in my bedroom for my personal items. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it serves me well. I'd recommend it to anyone for any living area of the house. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 stars I looked at the Eastman secretary for a long time before purchasing. I was nervous about buying a piece of furniture online, however I'm so glad that I did. It has great features and plenty of space for a laptop. It's the perfect desk for me to keep everything organized. I do think Ballard's shipping charges are excessive but I used a coupon so that I helped. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Secretary I am very happy with my recent purchase of this secretary desk. I work from home and was initially worried that this desk would be too small and not functional for my needs, but I love it! It has a great file drawer and little cubbies on the inside to keep my things organized. This ended up being the perfect size. I love the style and seems durable and good quality. The only thing is the rubbed cream is a little darker in person than in the picture. Still beautiful. March 16, 2011
