Large Eastman Secretary Desk is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 205.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I was hesitant to buy such a substantial piece of furniture online. So pleased with this purchase. I needed a desk in my bedroom but I'm messy and needed to close up the desk so I don't have to look at work when it's time for bed. This piece is heavy! I paid the extra to have it setup and it was worth every penny. They took away all the packaging too. I bought the spa color and it's exactly as shown in pictures. The part of the desk that flips down has strong brackets and it feels very secure. The power bar is very useful. The filing cabinet drawer is perfect. I'm very pleased and would recommend this desk to anyone that needs a secretary desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this piece of furniture. The black finish is great quality, though it does show dust easily. I measured our printer and paper shredder multiple times to ensure they would fit, and they do. This desk allows us to hide everything that makes the office look like an office, and now the piano is the focal point of the room. The mechanism for the desk surface is very sturdy, I have no concerns about it breaking or wearing out over time. I’m very happy I purchased this, it will last the rest of our lifetime for sure and is a piece of high enough quality to hand down to relatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and Function Work Together Beautifully Ample storage and well made piece of furniture. The file drawer can be set up with two rows, front to back, or one long row going sideways. We ordered two of these. On one of them, the drop-down door was warped and would not open. Ballard replaced the desk very quickly. The cabinet looks very nice when closed and is perfect for use in an area that is not a dedicated office. We ordered the cream color and it is true to what is pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desk ...with a few headaches This desk is perfect for my small home office! I was leery after reading some reviews,but have not had any issues or complaints with the furniture. One thing to be aware of: the inside shelves are taped to the bottom of the desk!! Did not discover this until after the movers had left. It was a hassle, but my son-in-law and grandson saved the day as I got nowhere with JB Hunt transport. Also no shelf clips were included. Ballard refunded the expense for the moving into my home and the shelf clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful home office! I love this desk! It fits perfectly in a nook in our living room. It’s my remote office and also has space for our household files. The power strip, cable holes and the back slide out make it easy to organize electronics. The leveling feet are brilliant that you access from inside the desk as opposed to lifting a corner. It came assembled! This is a well thought design and beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Eastman Secretary Desk I needed to set up a home office when I began working remotely; however, it needed to fit in with my decor and not scream “office.” I was hesitant at first to purchase this desk, but I’m glad that I did. It’s a beautiful, well-made piece of furniture. It holds all of my supplies, printer, and laptop, and I’m able to hide everything away at the end of the day. I will add that delivery was flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional piece I ordered the Old World Brown and I couldn’t be happier with. It is a heavy quality piece and I bought it to use as my “mini office” in my guest room. I use it all the time! It’s very functional, with built in power/USB, file cabinets, drawers. It’s perfect and you’d never know it is so versatile because it’s so beautiful. It has exceeded my expectations in every way, well worth the price tag. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this desk! Beautiful desk with great storage. The workspace is better if you work directly off a laptop than a monitor because inside space hides the top part of a reasonably sized monitor. Otherwise, it is a beautiful workstation that hides the clutter of a workspace and helps improve the work/life separation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Exactly the Ballard quality that I have come to love. Beautiful wood, sturdy construction. The built-in hanging file folder and slide out printing stand are a nice plus. Also like that it has leveling feet for the original (uneven) wood floors in our house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I needed a piece of furniture for an alcove in my entryway. I searched lots of places for some type of chest, never happy with what I saw. Then while scrolling through Ballard Design catalog, I saw the Eastman desk. I immediately knew this is what I want. I didn’t have a desk and now I have an attractive chest and a desk in one. I love that my printer fits and that it has a file drawer.
