Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! I got this about a month ago and I absolutely love it. We downsized and I had sold my huge desk and didn't know what I would do. This works absolutely fine for me and I love everything about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful furniture I bought this a month ago and I am just so happy with this purchase! The workmanship is beautiful, the piece is sturdy and fits perfectly in the area I needed it for. It also offered me more storage as I just downsized to a new place.

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.

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 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.
Date published: 2017-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice piece, thoughtfully designed. This is just what I needed to get myself organized. Love the color! The bottom drawer holds all my files and I'm so happy they finally have a real home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed, well made piece of furniture I was pleasantly surprised to have a power outlet strip incorporated into the desk. Can also charge a Fitbit, cellphone, ebook, etc. It's perfect for a small space and is a great organizational tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This desk is amazing! I was a little hesitant to purchase this type of item on line. I couldn't be happier! It is just perfect. The desk is made extremely well. I just love the file drawer! It is worth every penny spent. Please don't wait. And Ballard is great to deal with. The delivery was flawless. The gentlemen were so nice and placed it exactly where I wanted it. Wish I could give this experience 10 stars!!

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.
Date published: 2017-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well constructed This desk is wonderful. The wood is thick and the drawers slide out easily. The bottom drawer is roomy and the small drawers on inside are great for pencils and desk essentials. The metal rods that hold the fold down lid are strong and move beautifully. I couldn't be happier. And the price is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this secretary's desk. Beautiful piece of furniture, extremely well made. Wanted it for a corner in my bedroom and it fits perfectly, not too large. However it has abundant storage and is perfect to organize all the little things I like to keep in my desk. Including the bottom drawer which hold quite a large quantity of files. When it's all closed up it looks like a lovely piece of furniture and not clunky piece of office equipment. A little too well packed, so it was a challenge to unpack the desk. But it arrived in perfect condition, despite the heavy rains.

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 Beautiful & practical desk We ordered this in the rubbed black finish for our living room. It is the perfect size and has a lot of storage space and room for file folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I love my new secretary desk. I had a very small and challenging space for my personal office and this desk is perfect for the space. It is beautiful, sturdy, well-made and functional. The only inconvenience is that when the desk lid is in the open position, accessing the contents of the drawers is tricky. But, I have figured it out, made it work and I am really happy with my purchase.

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 Great writing desk I love this desk ~ I bought it in the oak, and it looks great. The only downfall is that the drop front creaks a little when it's open if inconsistent pressure is applied, but a laptop computer is heavy enough to alleviate the problem for the most part. As well, an adjustable chair is necessary, as a standard-height chair is too low. That all said, I'm still very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect secretary I bought the smaller secretary for an apartment. It is a perfect compact space with the bottom being a file cabinet. The craftsmanship is beautiful; I ordered the brown worm wood because it went with my furniture but the other colors looked nice as well. My only opinion of a design flaw is that I wish the top small drawers were maybe at the top so I could stand an address book, etc to one side. They are in the middle of the space. But, that is a minor thought and I would still give it 5 stars! It was delivered in perfect condition and I didn't think there was excess packing material like other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and function in a compact piece I converted my home office into a closet/dressing room/laundry and needed something to discreetly contain my laptop, office files and supplies in the master bedroom. This secretary is the perfect piece. It is a quality made piece of furniture that doesn't scream "office furniture", and even though it is compact, it has plenty of drawers for all my stuff. It was delivered very quickly and the packing was outstanding.
