Customer comments about Ellis 66x22 Double File Drawer Desk:

My office is at one end of a long semi-formal living room. This desk has the right combination of casual elegance to fit in. It sits behind an R&B sofa, so it doubles as a desk and sofa table with a lamp.

The desk is sturdy & functional. The drawers are a little sticky, but we're hoping they break in. All in all, a great purchase.

Quality concern

Pros

  • Great design

Cons

  • Poor quality

Best Uses

  • Smaller Offices

Customer comments about Ellis 56x22 Desk:

The design and size was just what I was looking for. The delivery was white glove. However, the following day we tried to move the desk into position 3 feet from where it was delivered when the top came completely off the base. Looking closely at the construction the wrong hardware was used in Assembly. The screws holding the top to the base penetrated less than 1/8th inch. I called R&B and they handled it like professionals. Picked up the desk the following week and immediately credited my account. I hope they spoke to the manufacturer so improvements are made to the construction.

    This desk is ideal for a small office or space within a larger room. It has a small footprint but big style and presence. I call it the little "pencil box on sticks" desk. It combines great form with practical function.

    As always, R & B delivery and customer service are the best I know. They are always prompt, efficient, courteous and respectful of my home and my time.

      Replaced a nice antique table that was out-of-place in decor. Integral file drawer is nice feature - just had to eliminate some unneeded files. Solid feel and enough table top for computer monitor and writing surface. Intend to move printer to a closet somewhere in the future. Would like more drawer space, but don't see how to do it (a clever tray in the keyboard pull-out might help). Appreciate the USA maker, too.

          Customer comments about Ellis 56x22 Single File Drawer Desk:

          It amazes me what some people complain about: size, colour, storage ... Ellis is gorgeous wood, clean lines, perfect size (dimensions are listed on the site so you know ahead of time what you're buying). I ordered my Ellis in walnut, along with 3 Pisa shelves in cherry to outfit my home office. I requested warm tones and someone viewed the pieces together in the warehouse and chose 3 Pisa that match perfectly, and the rich tone of Ellis is a beautiful contrast. The keyboard shelf is what it is, functional, hidden beautifully by the front panel, open at the back for cords, sturdy when pulled out for use, definitely large enough for my 17" laptop to reside comfortably beneath the desktop. The top surface is spacious, for a monitor, desktop file, letter trays, lamp, and still writing space. The file drawer keeps my papers contained, and the smaller drawer has plenty of space for all the things I need close-at-hand. Ellis is finished all the way around so I float it in the room with its back to the door. Perfect for my small office. Speaking to the heirloom quality/look, my mother said it reminds her of her father's desk. I'm already scouting R&B for more accents to further beautify my home.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Room and Board Delivery always goes above and beyond. I have a house full of R&B and with each order I receive a delivery date of my choice, a call-ahead a couple days before to cement the short delivery window, and a call from the driver shortly before they arrive. Shoes are removed without question, and pieces are placed exactly where I want them, unwrapped, assembled, perfect. Exchanges, on the rare occasion something isn't quite right with a piece, are no-hassle, easy, convenient (I was allowed to keep my custom sofa with a minor flaw while a new one was made for me, and they were switched out on the same day).

          Customer comments about Ellis 56x22 Desk:

          The desk looks great. The cherry finish is rich and unlike most desks, it is small and elegant and does not take over the room. It is perfect for a small home office, for laptop users.

          However, the drawers are hard to open, and when you pull you often pull the entire desk. The middle drawer is a pull out keyboard shelf, rather than a drawer. Given the size of the desk, it is not really designed for a desktop computer, so I am not sure why there is need for a keyboard shelf. I use it as a regular drawer.

              I liked the look of this desk online and like it even more now it is in my house. I wanted a desk for my bedroom that didn't scream "desk". This is a beautiful piece of furniture that is elegant in design. I like the fact it only has limited storage because it doesn't overpower the space it's in like most desks do. I love the cherry and am so glad I chose it.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Customer service worked with me to have the delivery be scheduled around some upcoming surgery. The delivery men were fantastic; very careful bring the furniture in and because they knew I couldn't lift anything made sure that the pieces I purchased were put just where I wanted them.

                Customer comments about Ellis 56x22 Desk:

                Lovely desk, but two drawbacks that took away one star. First, one of the clips in the drop down keyboard tray bent after first use, and had to be carefully straightened. It was not aligned properly. Second, and most distressing, it lacks a hole for computer cables. As is, the monitor and power cables dangle across the top of the desk and down the side, ruining an otherwise clean design. I may have to drill my own hole, which is causing my wife some stress. As this is obviously designed for home office user, with a keyboard tray, it is odd that it does not accommodate cables.

                    A:

                    There is wire management in the back of the center drawer. It is possible to place the power strip inside the drawer if needed, keeping in mind the safety concerns of placement in a wood piece of furniture. You may also use Horizontal Cord Management on the outside of the back of the desk as an organization option.

                  Q:

                  Is the back finished? Can it be?

                  Is there an option for a "modesty panel?

                    We do not offer any customizing options for our Ellis Collection. However, all these desks would have finished backs.

                  Q:

                  Hi, I will not use a keyboard. Is it possible to replace the center keyboard drawer with a regular drawer for pens etc?
                  Thank you.

                    The face of the small drawer on the Ellis desk flips down for a keyboard, but you don’t have to use it as a keyboard drawer. It pulls out just like a regular pen/pencil drawer.

                  Q:

                  What does this mean: "Wire Management - 6w 2h; bottom center of pull-out work surface"

                  Does "drop down drawer front" mean that the drawer does not pull out?

                    The wire management on our Ellis collection desk is an opening that is used to fit wires for electronics through the back of the piece. In the 56x22 single file drawer, the wire management is located in the back of the pull down drawer at the center towards the bottom of the drawer. The drawer does pull out while also allowing the drawer front to drop down.
