Good working desk

Eleazar from Tucson, AZ– Verified Buyer

I bought this to replace a larger desk. The workspace is decent but you have to watch your clutter. I wish the drawer had a shelf option rather than it being a filing cabinet. I have short legs and I find myself hitting the thin metal crossbar if I stretch my legs. I'm still happy with it.

Handsome desk

John from Seattle, WA– Verified Buyer

My desk arrived assembled. The desk size is perfect for my compact office room, and the adjustable stands make this desk sit on my uneven concrete floor nicely. It is well built and very sturdy, and the metal legs are big plus so I don’t have to worry about leaving a dent or the water mark on the legs when I clean the floor. This is my 4th piece Herman Miller furniture, and I enjoy looking at it everyday.
