A little pricey
Kristen from Marietta, GA – Verified Buyer
I don't use the keyboard drawer instead I just put pens and other accessories in it. I thought it was too hard to maneuver the mouse in it and then having the drawer open made me too far away from my monitor. I ordered this and the return. This desk holds two monitors and a laptop docking station nicely (I'm a software developer so need lots of monitors) plus my keyboard and mouse. I like the kick panel because it keeps the wires hidden and I don't have to worry about my cats chewing them now. This desk works better on a hard surface because the return does not exactly meet up with the desk and there are no balances in the feet. I ordered the natural walnut and it is a litter darker than I thought from the pictures but I still like it. I'm not really sure I think the price is justified for what it is though. But it is hard to find nice looking contemporary office furniture without paying more. I will probably buy a matching bookshelf from BDI's semblance product so my home office matches.

Whilst this range is quite expensive I have to say it looks great. I purchased many items in the range and think the design is a great success. The glass top is a nice detail which also protects the surface!
Couldn't be happier

Fabulous. Very well made. Not the easiest thing to put together but exceptional when you're done! The second part (back portion) of the drawer is deep and even fits a second keyboard (storage spot). Very seamless look. Great transition desk too.
I Love This Desk!!
kyle from Kenmore, WA – Verified Buyer
This desk has exceeded my expectations! It is very well made, and is very easy to put together. I especially like the cable management panel, it completely conceals all my wires and cables seamlessly! I was worried that it wouldn't live up to the high price, but in the end it is totally worth it! Kyle P.

The product is just as described. The color of the desk is as is in the photo. It is extremely functional, no wires are visible. Assembly was extremely easy and the desk is beyond sturdy. The glass is finger print proof, but it does leave smudges at times, if your hand is even remotely sweaty.Bought this desk for two people to use, and it is working perfectly. Worth every penny.

This is the perfect desk for the minimalist who wants to hide all their cables! It really cleans up the look of an office. The matte glass adds a unique touch! Nice quality materials.
Great functional design
Tom from Ft Lauderdale – Verified Buyer
The simplicity of the design actually hides how really functional this desk is. All wires for chargers/printer cables etc. are hidden between the front and back panels. Even the drawer has 'wire' control features. Amazingly simple and totally functional.
slick and well engineered

William from Hockessin, DE – Verified Buyer
The desk is amazing, great quality and super well built. One thing they don't mention on the description of this desk is that the top is made of frosted black glass. It's awesome looking and a pleasant surprise!!
