Wood Top - Corner Desk Group Small is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Corner office furniture I found this very easy to put together. It looks great in my corner space. I love the dark brown color. My new home office is all set!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this Unit-With one Exception This a great unit (I purchased two filing cabinets and the corner desk top).I recommend it for what it does functionally, specifically- by making use of a corner. For those of you, like me, that have a room with windows on both sides, the PC is out of direct light and allows working all times of day. Also, the screen is not "in the window" which is a pet peeve of mine. My only complaint- or perhaps recommendation- is be CAREFUL. The laminate seems to chip easily. I can fix it with a little white wood putty, and it's a "working" desk so I anticipate wear and tear, but it disturbs me that within two weeks of set up, I have dings. Wah!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zinc top corner desk As other reviewers have commented, a bit difficult and unwieldy to assemble. Even with the zinc top, the pre-drilled holes don't line up perfectly. But the top looks really nice, and the file cabinets are of good quality. I opted for the plinth bases for extra height (based on other reviews), and glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great small desk Small desk that is great for laptop & 2nd monitor. Great quality and very simple to put together. Wish width of open area to sit was slightly wider, as sitting in chair and opening drawers is a bit tight, esp if chair has arms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Corner Desk Group The desk is great. The assembly not so much. The directions mention pre-drilled holes to connect the 3 top pieces. After a couple calls to customer service I was told The directions are incorrect and that the wood was soft enough for me to attach the brackets with a screwdriver. I did so without given any direction as to the spacing of said brackets. Fingers crossed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought it (again) This is the second of these desks I have ordered. I had one 8 years ago and loved it, but gave it to our son when he bought his first house. Fast forward, and now we are in a new, smaller home where I wanted to find a desk with plenty of storage to fit in a loft office space. I found myself disappointed by some of the “quality” furniture store products, and decided this desk was again one of my better options. Both times I purchased the desk in the black finish. This time the desk top surface appears to be more prone to scratches and scuff marks; nonetheless, it works well for my needs. It arrived quickly, packaged in more then enough cardboard and styrofoam to arrive without any damage, was simple to put together, and provides me the file storage I need in a small space. I do wish this desk design had a lower bookshelf exterior corner unit option that could fit an all-in-one printer on it. The open bookshelf design they offer can only be accessed from the front; if they turned the open side to the wider run of the cabinet it would work, but as it is with the opening on the narrow, front side of the unit, it does not fit a printer. Alas, I had to set my printer on the desk, which does take up some of my work space, but it’s the best option for now. It’s because of this, as well as the easily scuffed desk top surface, I give this 4 stars instead of 5. As an aside, I did visit the Atlanta Ballard Design store to look at the other finish options in person, thinking I might go with the white this time; however, the white finish seemed pretty beat up and I was worried in the long run this would not hold up well for me. I am not a fan of the brown stain either as it does not match some of my other wood furniture and I didn’t want a hodge lodge of furniture finishes clashing. So it was again the black finish I chose; black can always be touched up easily with a bit of black paint or even a black sharpie in a pinch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! Love it! But I could not install the corner top because the two side file cabinet tops did not come with the pre-drilled holes. I had to hire a handyman to come drill the holes and put it together for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great desk for my corner space! I love furniture from Ballard! This corner desk system fits well for the space I have. I already had a file cabinet, so I ordered the corner top and another side unit separately. There were no pre-drilled holes to attach the top to the side units like the directions said. But I had to be a little creative to get it to fit (my fault), so the brackets weren't needed right now. Also, the wood top has a strong smell which has taken a while to air out. No problems with the finish, its beautiful and I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent product Not difficult to put together. The instructions indicated to use the predrilled holes to attach the two side but there were no predrilled holes. I worked it out and drilled my own. Also the desk appears a bit low from my personal view. I’m sure it’s fine for most people. However we learned later that there is a plinth,a footing, that we ordered for $159. The whole deal is a little pricey but looks good and we’re glad we bought it. The drawers have smal(l finger pulls that make it hard to open and could have been better designed. I’m going to try to adjust the slide so it’s easier to open. That should take care of it. Ballard is easy to deal with and will

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice desk I like the desk overall, it works perfect in my space. The things I don't care too much for is the wood is a little soft and dents/scratches easy, the rails/glides on the drawers are not the greatest and for my situation the back of the desk/cabinets are not finished so when you have your desk facing out and not against a wall it doesn't look very good, but I found a solution that worked nicely for me. We added wainscoting to the "front" (actually the back) of the desk to make it look finished and it turned out fine. I do love that it's modular and you can make it how big or small you need it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality desk for small space The Original Home Office Corner Desk is very nice for my SMALL office. The quality is pretty good. I just think this desk is very expensive. I was unable to find anything else for my small room that wasn't flimsy. Overall pretty pleased with the desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart Look, Quality Construction I am quite pleased with my corner desk. I have been using it for several months now. In fact, I got a whole office full of Original Home Office Furniture in the dark gray with zinc tops, and I love the look. A couple of comments about the corner desk: Be aware that the angle of the desk means you are almost always sitting in the way of any drawer you are going to open. Minor inconvenience. Also, despite this desk being for a corner, I wanted it positioned in the middle of a wall. Unfortunately, the back of the desk, though painted, is not finished nicely. And finally, I was hoping the zinc top would be more durable than wood, but I am finding it scratches just as easily, and it arrived with a couple of dings. As for other reviewers' complaints about assembly, I had to hire someone to assemble it for me, so he had all the proper tools and was paid not to complain #ha#, but I do think he found assembly a bit challenging!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible system I admit it - I'm a serial furniture rearranger. I love this system. We have several pieces - in black - for our awkwardly shaped home office. We were able to come up with a great arrangement that works well in the space, and I love knowing I can move it around later if I want to! I shied away from five stars only because the edges of the black desktop have worn significantly. Otherwise, it's been sturdy and dependable, and still looking good after 5 years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Quality Desk for the Price I'd read the reviews posted on the corner desk w/two 1-cabinet credenzas and was a bit hesitant to purchase. However, my experience was very good. The order came quickly, was well packaged so as not to be damaged, is sturdy and was, overall, easy to put together (I am a 40-year old female and put this together myself). The desk is attractive and the grey shade looks very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good home office furniture I purchased several pieces from this collection in black. It looks really classy but the table top where the computer sits has already worn off a little bit from regular wear and tear. I also purchased the one drawer cabinet with shelves to put my computers (don't like closed ones) and it has gotten scratches easily from putting the computers in. Overall it's very nice, came packaged nicely, only one piece was slightly scratched but it was in the back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Notes on assembly I ordered the corner desk unit along with several other pieces from this collection. The color and materials appear to be good quality. If you order this unit, however, be aware of assembly issues. The corner desk top needs to be attached to the back leg support as well as the neighboring work surfaces. The screws included for these tasks are too short, so I used longer screws to get the job done. Also, the support leg for the back of the corner desk top is not particularly stable/sturdy, so I added extra support with 4 small metal L-brackets that I happened to have in my tool box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from L shape desk Although the quality is nice, putting it together was NOT easy. there are no pre drilled holes on the wooden tops, only the zinc top (which I didn't get) We had to get a drill and the dots on the inside of the desk were not in the right place for the drill holes. This is not for someone who is not handy. just so you know

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Design, But Impractical A co-worker and I ordered 2 of these desks with a 2 drawer file cabinet and 3 drawer cabinet, and the low corner hutch each in the Tuscan Brown color. They arrived in "okay" condition. One desktop was cracked and there were a couple of scratches. We kept the sets and negotiated a discount rather than go through the trouble of returning. That experience was easy and good! The desks themselves went together very easily, no troubles as other reviewers had stated and the overall quality is very nice. The real problem is with the function of the drawers and such. First, the desks are low. Like lillipution low. Other co-workers have dubbed our desks "mini-me's". This is not a problem, it just takes a bit of adjusting to the look and feel. There is a safety feature on the 2 drawer file cabinet that will not let both drawers open at the same time which is a good idea. However, the handles are placed very low on the drawers and are not at all finger friendly. This paired with the fact that one has to pull very hard on the drawer to get it open makes for sore fingers by the end of the day. Also, the drawers themselves are not as deep as the desktop leaving dead, unused space behind the drawers which could have been more drawer space. I cannot fathom the reasoning behind this element. You pull out a drawer expecting it to keep coming, but no. Finally, the low hutch. We got these thinking it would be the right height for comfortably viewing a computer monitor. Well, maybe, but not if you have Imac computers. The hutch paired with the stand of the Imac is a bit to high for maximum comfort. This is not their fault, but something I thought could be helpful to future buyers. In all, the desks are very nice, and a huge step up from what we had, but a couple of simple design adjustments could make them much, MUCH more user-friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Assembly Issues Like the other customer reviews I had assembly issues with the corner desk and the leg that attaches to it. The method for assembly is poor and frustrating. The screws are too short and the leg with the slightest movemement will fall off. I will be adding brackets to attach the leg. I would recommend that Ballard takes a serious look at updating the way the leg is attached. It does not work as is.
Date published: 2014-05-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stain wore off I purchased a corner desk with shelves in Tuscan brown. The main reason I purchased this one was the size, it's smaller than the other brands' desk combinations and I have limited space. The stain is pretty bad, the chair came already scratched and the desk, especially the corner part where you use the most got all scratched and the stain wore off within a matter of weeks. I had the handymen put it together, it definitely requires professional installation unless you're very handy and used to dealing with this kind of stuff. the screws that came with it often fell short so my handymen used supplemented a loot of those.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to Assemble As others have mentioned, because the tops lack pre-drilled holes, this furniture requires two people and a drill to connect the tops to the center corner piece. It is stunning to me that Ballard fails to mention this on the website nor is it referenced in any way in the assembly instructions provided. Very disappointing.
