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.

Almost perfect

By 

from Arlington, TX

Comments about Secretary Desk:

The desk fit my needs perfectly. I needed it to look stylish and not look like a piece of office furniture since I wanted my home office to be in the living room vs a bedroom. It was easy to assemble and price was great on sale, even though there was a surcharge. Hate the surcharge and typically won't order due to those but the price was right. The only complaint is that the desk was damaged. The packaging was well done and not damaged which means that the desk was damaged before being boxed. We didn't see it until the assembly was done and now I don't want to take it apart to return it so I'm making a call to World Market. Frustrating!

Great Desk for a Small Space

By 

from US

Comments about Secretary Desk:

This desk is great, it fits in the small space I had but gives a lot of room to work with when using it as a desk. The multi-tier setup is perfect for an external monitor if you're working with a laptop on the main desk tier. The ability to pull out the work space for more room is wonderful, though like other reviewers have mentioned, there's no way to lock it (except jamming a small notebook or post-it pack or something), which can get a little annoying while working.

The secretary functionality is great too, since the room its in doubles as a guest room, and I can hide my work mess.

The main photo on the site actually has the legs on backwards, which I did initially when putting it together, but it was really easy to just swap it around when I realized the mistake. To make sure everything goes smoothly, just tighten the screws once all the pieces are in place or there's a chance things wont' fit.

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

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.
