Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riser ─ 2 1/4-in Plinth Base for Credenza The packaging was superb! Not a scratch on the item. The paint job was flawless. The plinth is a needed item to dress up the credenza. It has worked out well for me.

Date published: 2021-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Icing On The Cake! The plinths really finish the cabinets nicely. Make them look more, well, complete. Bear in mind, though, that they raise the desktop (ultimately) by 2.5”, so if your desk chair is not height-adjustable, or you are particularly petite, they may not be appropriate for your purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DON'T SKIP THE RISERS Love my corner unit, provided earlier review on that item, but if you are contemplating the corner unit, don't forego the Plinth Base Set - without it, at least for me, the desk is too low. Plus the risers at style to the unit in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, looks and functionality I purchased the Small Corner Desk Group in rubbed black with plinths and zinc tops. I am extremely pleased with the quality, utility, construction and design of all components. The many pieces arrived without damage. I hired help to put it together, which took about 2 hrs for skilled people with tools. There were zero issues (or misdrilled holes). With a good desk chair (purchased elsewhere), my daily full-time use over the the last 3+ weeks indicates that my now-permanent work from home office is functional, attractive, comfortable - and perfect for my needs.
