      Customer comments about Basis 50x22 Desk:

      I really love this desk. Like all Room and Board products the quality construction is impeccable. I have a small space in the guest bedroom that doubles as an office and this 36 x 22 fits perfectly. I have a large computer monitor on it I connect to my closed laptop for watching movies and working on the computer. I like the option of the pullout workspace and the clean lines. The drawer slides very nicely. I love the cherry finish I went with. I wish I could have gotten the desk slightly bigger so I could have room to write on it too but I didn't have the space. If you have the space and want a surface for laptop and writing, I'd err on the side of the bigger desk as this one is quite small. It would work great for a child's homework desk and also as a console table.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery was prompt and the workers were extremely helpful, courteous and likable. They helped me to get everything set up just right and it was in perfect condition. Customer service did a great job of setting me up with a delivery time and I loved hearing the Minnesotan accents of the drivers and customer service...made me feel like I was back home!

        Customer comments about Basis 50x22 Desk:

        The 36" desk in walnut is gorgeous and good for smaller spaces. It is definitely more visually striking and pleasing from the side, so consider that when ordering it for your space. $1200 may seem like a lot to spend on a small desk, but the build and finish are second to none and meant to last forever. Drawer pulls and hardware have a great feel to them.

        There's also sensible cable routing from the keyboard tray to under the desk in order to minimize cords hanging onto your knees.

          It's gorgeous and very well made. I'm very happy with this purchase.I'm a little on the short side... 5'3"... so it's a high for a desk without doing any modifications to it. I'll have to install a keyboard tray to stay ergo. I hate to do that since the desk is so beautiful, but it's a must-have accessory.[...]
