Harriet Rising Top Desk is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, practical This desk works perfectly for me. I love the style, the drawers, the versatility of working standing or seated and especially that it's a stand-up desk that doesn't look like a stand-up desk. Waited a long time to 'add to cart' and am so glad I finally did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Home office desk Beautiful desk. Great size. Love that you can hide your laptop in the desk when not in use. Only con, if any, when lifting and lowering the desk area there’s a loud noise made by the joints of desk. Otherwise, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Functional desk I am thrilled with this desk! I was updating my office/studio space and wanted to find a desk that would allow me to stand while working and was changing my look from dark wood to painted white. So glad that I found this desk on Ballard! I love the ease of lifting the standing platform to work standing up and the fact that I can sit down to work if I desire. The painted wood, desk design and hardware are quality products. The two pullout drawers provide ample space for basic desk needs (pencils, pens, paperclips, etc.). The only (and it is a tiny "only") thing I have noticed is that when the rising top is down all the way, it doesn't sit completely flush with the two "stationary" sections of desk top. We're talking less than 1/8" but still, it isn't completely flush so if you're working on a project that spans the middle rising section and either of the sides, it will not be completely flat. Otherwise, I have nothing but good things to say about the Harriet Rising Top Desk and I look forward to using it for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Desk I love this desk. The color is beautiful and the style is just right. Not too traditional and not too modern. The desk is ample size, plenty of rooms for computers, papers, a large monitor, etc. I thought I would raise it more, but I often forget! But it is easy to raise and adjustable based on what level you need. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Technology Readiness This is a great fit for me. It was selected by my amazing interior designer after researching many options. It is a great size, beautiful off-white, and has some draw space “minimalist.” My only dismay (hence my rating) is that there isn’t any holes for cables nor a power source connection. This is a technology age! We will need to engineer for the need to safely run the cables underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A beautiful and functional desk Its a beautiful and functional desk. I wanted a standing desk, but I also wanted something that looked attractive unlike the electrical and steel standing desks. I was so happy to find this. The wood and finish are beautiful as is the design and little details of the desk. The 2 drawers are a good size. The middle desk riser is very spacious and is a nice option when needing a break from sitting. There are multiple levels for the desk to rise, so it's easy to find the right height for you. The desk riser feels a little clunky when you are pulling it up, almost stiff. But I believe the mechanism is very strong and sturdy. Assembly was easy, as you just have to put the legs together. Overall, 'Im very pleased with the purchase and looking to add to the collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs holes for electronic cords & a power source Beautiful desk. Well constructed but Im giving it a 3 star because it desperately need holes for electronic cords & a power source for devices. I havent figured out how to keep the desk clutter free of cords. Lamp, phone charger, computer cords, etc. It would be the ideal desk if you could plug in all electonics inside of the lift desk to hide all of these necessities. It provides excellent storage and plenty of room to neatly store cords inside. I also do not like that you have to open the lift desk all the way up in order for it to close.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected for the price 3.5* Sure, this is an attractive desk and it functions - but the paint came chipped all around the edge! It wouldn't bother me if it was cheaper but it already came in pieces and needed assembly which isn't typically the case with other companies selling comparable items at this pricepoint. As long as you don't need the desk to be uniform white, it's great though.
