Why We Love It

Clever and compact, our exclusive Secretary Desk is a brilliant solution for small home offices and workspaces. Like a vintage desk from the early 20th century, the top lifts to reveal shelf space, two drawers and a pullout tray for an extra work surface that doubles perfectly as a keyboard tray. Simply close the lid for tidy cleanup when you're done. An incredible value, this smart option is ultra-functional and exceptionally stylish.

I really loved receiving this desk in the mail in spite of learning about the $50 savings I could have made if only I waited another week or two. The desk is perfect BUT there is no way to lock the pull out flat desk space in place so as I use the desk, it slowly creeps back into it's nesting area, leaving me with NO ROOM to do anything.

Great desk for small space

By 

from Nashville, TN

Pros

  • small size

Cons

  • unsteady

Best Uses

  • Guest bedroom

Comments about Secretary Desk:

This was the perfect desk for a very small space that only had a 30" clearance to the bathroom door. It met my expectations expect it isn't as "steady" as I would like it to be. Assembly was relatively easy, just make sure you follow the "A"- "D" places to line the legs up. I would recommend this for a guest bedroom that won't get used that often but I don't think I would want to use it everyday.

Awesome

By

Comments about Secretary Desk:

I love this desk! I live in a small space and it's perfect. My husband and I are trying to slowly upgrade all of our furniture to nice things. Right now it's a mix of hand-me-downs, stuff from childhood and just total junk. This desk was exciting first step!!! It's compact but when you open it you have plenty of room to work. It's awesome. I'm really so excited about this! Oh, the stool is neat too. And the desk was easy to put together.

Great desk but too tall

By 

from Evanston, IL, USA

Comments about Secretary Desk:

I needed a compact desk to work and write at in the nook off our living room. I immediately loved the style and sturdiness of this secretary desk when I spotted it! I also liked the sliding desktop.

I've had it now for a few months and am very happy with it overall. It appears exactly as pictured (the wood might be stained a bit darker), and it's perfectly simple, which suits my needs--two small drawers are great for storing writing utensils, envelopes, postage, etc. and the open fliptop creates a fairly deep ledge that's ideal for setting a cup of tea and other miscellaneous items.

The only problem is the height - it's SO tall! The sliding desktop comes almost to my chest (I'm a gal of average height, 5'5), so I have to lift my hands up to chest level to write or type on the desktop...this is not a comfortable ergonomic position to maintain for a long time. I even have a height-adjusting chair, and the highest setting still puts me short of the desk. So sadly, I'm now on the search for a tall chair I can use with this desk.

If you're a very tall person, or will be using this desk for short stretches at a time, I would highly recommend. If you're needing an everyday work desk, the height discomfort and lack of desk storage might be an issue for you.

The price is a little high IMO, but materials seem thick and sturdy and I expect it will last for quite a while.

Beautiful, Practical, Relatively Inexpensive for the Style

By 

from New York

Comments about Secretary Desk:

This is such an awesome desk. It has so many smart and hard-to-find features, while being much more beautiful than the typical, ugly, utilitarian work desk.

I already had a cheap but nice and functional desk and didn't especially need a new one, but when I saw the store model in person and learned that it was on sale, I ordered it immediately. Seeing it in person first definitely helped my decision, but the fact that it had great reviews also influenced my purchase.

Function: excellent for a small space. It's actually a little less wide than my previous one, so it takes up less floor space, while being smartly designed to actually hold more in and on it. The sliding function is great; I've been wanting something like that for a long time. I use this as a computer desk and it allows me to have my monitor (on the upper shelf), giant keyboard, mouse, and even tablet out at the same time without fighting for space. Or, you can slide it out while eating or writing in a notebook and still have room for everything. The drawers are so helpful, too. Keeps papers and other clutter at bay.

Form: I love the antique look, and it's sturdy and easy to put together. The only part I'm not a huge fan of are the legs, because they're very thick and the faux "distressed" paint job looks a bit silly. But on the other hand, the design and thickness are partially what make the desk so sturdy, and if it really bothered me I'd just paint them all black (now that it's set up it my space, I don't even notice it).

Overall it's beautiful and has made using my desk easier without breaking the bank.

P.S. tip for those who live in walk-up buildings: this is NOT that heavy, but you need to take it out of the box and carry it up in pieces. (It's wrapped well, so it's safe to do so.)

Great Deal on solid product

By

Comments about Secretary Desk:

It was a little taller than expected. I envisioned a laptop being able to be closed into the desk but the drawers are a bit wider than expected.

Needed to use a brown furniture marker on one small, for lack of a better term, "scratch".

It's a solid piece, and looks great!

Comments about Secretary Desk:

We needed a small desk, but one that would have plenty of room for a laptop and storage too, plus look stylish. We couldn't get happier with this desk. It fits in a bedroom perfectly, has plenty of desktop space, is absolutely beautiful and modern looking, and is sturdy and solid.
