Even after maple is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New maple ranges in color from cream to gold and will beautifully deepen in gold tones over time.
  • Secondary Material: stainless steel See full material details
  • Material Description: Our stainless steel is domestically sourced from 60% recycled material. It is highly resistant to corrosion and has a brushed texture to ensure wear marks will blend in over time.

    Customer comments about Basis 50w 22d 30h Desk:

    I work from home as a product and branding design consultant and this is the perfect desk! I ended up going with the 50" in walnut. Initially I was aesthetically drawn to purchase the Grove console and use as a desk however, when I looked around the showroom I realized that the Basis desk is much more practical for my needs since it has a larger surface area and extended drawer/shelf area. I'm absolutely thrilled with this purchase, I'm not sure how I was working from home without it the past year! I still think the Grove console can be used as a desk but it just wasn't practical for me as a I often use a wacom tablet and require a great deal of surface area. It also fits perfectly in my living room.

      Customer comments about Basis 36w 22d 30h Desk:

      I use this desk for my desktop computer, and office work space. I chose it and love it for the sliding drawer the conceals the wireless mouse and keyboard. I like that the drawer goes flat and can use it as functional desk space. It was shockingly difficult to find a minimalist, well designed desk with this feature. However, the surface of the desk appears to have "pits." They don't actually feel like pits, and are possibly tiny color swirls in the wood. The sales associates told me this is a natural feature of the woods, and may be present on replacements. They might not be visible on darker finishes. I've learned to love the desk with it's minor imperfections and don't truly notice them anymore.

              I really liked the looks of this desk, and it was the perfect size. However, within days of delivery, the drawer started to be difficult to open and close, and then almost completely froze. I checked it out, and the bottom of the drawer is made of particle board, which probably expands in the humid East Coast summer. The furniture repair man that came to take a look said that the drawer was so tight that he didn't even want to try to adjust the glides for fear of not being able to put things back together again. Bottom line: great design, but they cheaped out during manufacturing. I am returning the desk.

              Room and Board's service and delivery is excellent.
