    Customer comments about Parsons 60x30 29h Table:

    Our entire office is Rm & Bd stone top parson table desks, maple roll under file cabinets, maple bookcases, maple lateral files, tall cabinets with file drawer bases with book case top. The maple top desks needed glass on top, so later orders changed to the stone. Our staff has great pride in their work areas because the furniture is so nice and shows we value their work environment.

      Customer comments about Parsons 60x30 29h Table:

      I purchased two Parsons tables. They appear to be of very good quality and a good value. I do not know how they will hold up over time, but they certainly look as though they will do so quite well.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I purchased two Parsons tables from the website, the first time I have purchased from Room and Board. The site was easy to use, the items arrived as scheduled, the delivery service was exemplary. Once delivered I realized that both the kind of wood I selected and the size of one of the tables I had specified was not going to work well in my space. I called Room and Board and was treated to a wonderful customer service experience. They had no qualms about exchanging what I had received for what I needed. Exchange delivery is scheduled for next week. This is not the experience I have had with other companies and I was very pleased and thankful for this level of customer service. It is often hard to tell what the actual piece will be like when ordering off a website, or even when seing the piece at a store and trying to imagine how it will work in your particular space. I rarely write reviews and when I do it is usually due to a dissapointment in service and/or quality. I am very glad that this time I felt compelled to take the time to write a review for expemplary customer service and product quality.

                    We have a Parson's dining table, so got the Reclaimed wood Parsons desk. The reclaimed wood has holes in it, and black parts..all part of the charm, but something we'd rather have in the office not dining room. Love these because of their sturdiness and high quality construction.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Our delivery drivers were rockstars! They protected our hardwoods by covering the desk with a table as they slid it in, put felt pads on the bottom legs, and called 10 minutes before they arrived. Fantastic service.

                        Yes, you can install an articulating keyboard tray onto the underside of a solid wood or MDF table top, that will allow the clearance for the steel apron base that runs along the perimeter of the desk.

                    • Q:

                      I'm thinking of buying the Parson's 72 x 30 with glass top to use as a home office desk. I like the size of the desk and the ability it will give me to spread out.

                      In the future, though, I may want to upgrade the top to a wooden one. Is this possible? That is, are there places in the metal frame that could receive the screws required to attach a wooden top to the frame?

                      I assume they are there on the tables with wooden tops, but since mine would be glass, I didn't know if they would be there on it as well.

                      Also, what exactly is involved in attaching the top to the frame?

                      Thanks!

                        You are correct. The steel tubing for the Parsons 54x18x29 console table is 2 inches square, so the clearance under the base is 27 inches.

                        MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard. The powdercoating on our MDF tops significantly enhances the durability by creating a seamless and hard surface. The powders do not contain any heavy metals, solvents, hazardous air pollutants, or VOCs, making it an environmentally friendly product. The care is similar to that of a wood top.

                      Hi! I want to change the 60x30 maple top on the Parsons 60x30 Parsons Dining Table/Desk I already have -- so, I want to buy just the solid mahogany table top, pre-drilled to swap out my old maple top. What is the price and avail of just the top?

                      Thanks!

                        You can purchase the table tops by themselves from us - however we don't offer a mahogany top. Please call one of our Design Associates at 800-301-9720 they can share pricing on the various table tops with you.
