Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Well Made Desk Beautiful desk. I cannot say enough good things about it. It's sturdy and heavy and a lot more roomy and practical than I anticipated. Strongly recommend. I didn't really need a new desk but saw it on the selling floor and fell in love with it. I work remotely for my job so it was a nice change for me and was able to get it on sale. I purchased the light washed oak color as a change from the usual dark brown and it is a refreshing change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bourdonnaise desk This is the second time that we've purchased this desk, this time for a second home (both desks in black). We've owned the other one for about five years and love the look, functionality and reasonable price. I have purchased several pieces from Ballard Designs and have had very positive experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A note on white glove delivery This is a beautiful Bourdonnais desk. We paid $100 for the white glove delivery. The desk comes unassembled--the legs must be bolted on and a back support bar attached. Prospective buyers should be aware that the white glove delivery does NOT involve assembly of the desk. While assembly is easy, it requires a minimum of two people to turn it over since it is very heavy. Had I known that white glove treatment did not involve assembly, I would have saved myself $100, since the four pieces individually are light enough for one person to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful desk, solidly constructed I ordered the Bourdonnais desk and file cabinet in Belgian Oak finish. While I was disappointed with the finish and some aspects of the file cabinet, the desk is beautiful. I didn't expect it to have such heft, but it's a substantial piece of furniture that looks great from every angle. Smooth, clear finish in the Belgian Oak, with no mismatched grains or off colored wood. I'm very happy with this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic & Elegant I searched for desks for at least 6 months before deciding to purchase this one. I love the colour and style of this desk and it is very elegant in my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not only a desk, but a beautiful piece of furniture! This desk was purchased for the office area in our home. It sits in an area that has an open plan design so it's visible upon entering the home. Because this desk is such a wonderful looking piece of furniture, I'm proud to have this be seen by anyone who visits. There is no doubt this is a sturdy, high quality desk that will stand the test of time with its classic design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, LOVE it! I bought the Belgium Oak version of this desk and I absolutely LOVE it! The finish is rich and trendy and adds a sophisticated touch to my home office. It seems very well made with nice, solid, wood components. I was originally a little reluctant to order it because of the price, but now that I have it I feel that it was well worth it! There was nothing else out there that had the style that this desk offers, so since my heart was set on this style I went for it - glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted in a desk We just moved and I finally have a very small room, 11x11, to call my own office. The open leg work doesn't take up space visually, so the desk does not overpower the room. I'm happy with the stained finish, the look and the size. The desk arrived within 2 weeks of my order date and I was a little nervous about assembling it alone (I call 911 if my husband picks up a screwdriver) but it only took about 10-15 minutes per leg. I did have to wait for my husband to help me turn the desk right side up and place it against the wall because it is a heavy piece. It looks awesome and I love it.
Date published: 2012-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and functional I've had my desk for about 3 weeks and am completely satisfied, the construction is solid and overall the piece is very heavy - don't expect to attach the legs or postion the desk without a helper. The Belgian Oak color is unique -exactly what I was going for as the other pieces I purchased are black. The contrast is striking. The desk top is a bit taller than my older desk so I'm adjusting to that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This desk is beautiful and good quality piece of furniture; very heavy/solid wood top. It makes a very nice addition to our home. Assembly was easy. Pay the extra for the in home delivery and to take the packaging away, if you can. The box is quite heavy and there is a lot of cardboard/packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desk! I bought this desk for my son. It is large enough to put his TV and computer stuff on it. He loves it and now my other son is putting in for one. It's well built and looks great in his room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality I'm incredibly pleased with this product. I bought the desk, the lateral file cabinet and two side tables. The quality is exceptional. It adds a 'richness' to my home office that was unexpected. Katie

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but VERY heavy We just rec'd 2 of these for our new home office. The desks are beautiful, but the top is VERY heavy. Getting it from our front door, up the stairs, and into the office was an ordeal. It assembles easily and is truly beautiful, but needs 2 strong people if you plan to move it very far from the delivery location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive heavy desk It’s a very nice heavy desk. I gave it 4 stars because the finish on the top of the desk is not perfectly smooth. It is rough towards the back. But we are happy with the size and weight of the desk. Looks nice in the office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase I received this desk about a week ago. The delivery crew was exceptional. They were supposed to just deliver it through the front door, but brought it into the room for me, helped my unbox it so that I could inspect all the pieces and were very, very pleasant and helpful. I love the desk. It is very sturdy (heavy!) and was a piece of cake to put together. Maybe it took 15 minutes. My one and only complaint is that I wish the keyboard drawer was wider. There is not enough room for a standard keyboard and a mouse (although it is plenty big and deep for the keyboard. Not a big deal, but it would be nice. I am taking the advice of others and ordering a glass top to preserve the top of the desk. I was quoted a price of $115 from a local glass shop. I would definitely recommend this desk!
Date published: 2012-04-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This desk has a great look and is well made. The desk has a large work surface. Based on other reviews I ordered a glass top to protect it from scratches. It is very solid and its elegant design offsets the fact that it is so sizeable. It is perfect for my Home Office. Note: It is very heavy and you will definitely need help to move the top and assemble the desk.
