Rated 5 out of 5 by from Margaret Desk The desk is a solid workspace with enough room for two 27" monitors and a laptop. (It doesn't have a keyboard drawer, but that wouldn't be practical with the 2-drawer design.) The detailed drawer fronts, bright gold pulls and gold feet give it style. I looked at many many options and this desk is a great mix of style and function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but lovely It's a beautiful desk, but smaller than I realized. Of course I checked the measurements before buying, just didn't realize it was still on the small size. It's absolutely beautiful and perfect in my new home office - a lovely grey-blue.
