Eastman Secretary Desk - Standard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 309.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastman Secretary-PERFECT! Perfect piece for my small room. Very well made, with plenty of storage options. The lateral file fit all of the files from my 2-drawer rolling file and lots of spare room. Wood color matches other furniture nicely! Extremely pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastman secretary desk It is a sturdy heavy piece so you need 2 people to get it out of the box. There wasn’t a scratch on it because it was packaged so well. Very functional and lovely piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastman desk This has always been a wonderful desk but this is a new and improved version. I like the drawer layout for files and also the larger interior drawers. And now a plug for electronics or a small interior lamp. I had an older version but I love this one even more. Thank you Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Secretary Desk Desperate for office/storage in my new apartment which has limited space for such. The Eastman fills the bill exceptionally well. Lovely, stylish piece that I am very pleased with in spite of a couple of flaws. The dropdown is 32 inches from floor to desktop. Slightly too tall, I think. I am using a dining sidechair with a cushion which is working, but could use a higher seat for maximum comfort. It is a bit of a tight squeeze plugging in my computer charger and I cannot use the adapter on my cell phone, but the USB plug works well for charging it. I do like that I can plug a lamp in through the hole in the back which eliminates another unsightly black cord! There is the unfortunate paint odor, but I put 4 boxes of baking soda inside, which I hope will ameliorate that situation soon. It arrived in perfect condition, but I cleaned it up with mild disinfectant wipes. There were remnants of styrofoam and a powdery substance in the drawers, which I lined. All in all, a terrific amount of storage in an attractive, efficient, compact design. Just what I needed. You can count on Ballard Designs to curate beautiful, functional pieces like this. Truly a Stylish Steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect small desk I ordered the secretariat in black. It has bronze/gold knobs with grey interior. There is power source and two USB ports convently inside. I paid for the inside delivery with removal of all shipping material. They did not remove all the interior stuffing or remove the hanging rack bars from under the cabinet. There are three “worn” marks across the front but does not take away from the beauty. I love the size. I love the look.
