    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut 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 walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.

    Customer comments about Ellis 56w 22d 30h Desk:

    I love mid century but could not afford a true mid century desk plus they don't work real well with keyboards, computers etc. I like the simple lines of this desk and that it is not too deep, perfect size.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent service and delivery. Right on time, that is rare.

      Customer comments about Ellis 56w 22d 30h Desk:

      I use this desk when I work from home and for everything one does in a home office. The desk is in the den/family room and fits perfectly in its appointed space. The style fits in really well with the eclectic look of the room.

      I love the wide center drawer. The desk feels sturdy and looks beautiful. It took me 3 months to find the perfect desk. I'm glad I didn't compromise with any of the previous models I considered.

        Customer comments about Ellis 66w 22d 30h Double File Drawer Desk:

        I live in an apartment and put this desk in the master bedroom to serve as a makeup vanity and home office with an all-in-one desktop computer. The 66" wide desk is definitely large enough for both of those uses. I keep my keyboard in the drawer and take it out when I need it. I got it in the gray finish and I like it even more in person than in the store (my floors are white oak with a very natural stain). I can't comments on the durability of the desk finish since I have only had it for a few weeks.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The delivery was quick and painless. They basically placed it in my bedroom, took the protective covers off and were done.

              My husband wanted his desk in the living room so he can enjoy the view onto the yard. I agreed providing we find the right desk. This one is ideal. Simple, good quality, beautiful wood (cherry), and a drop-down front on the center drawer so he can store his keyboard there, which is easier on his wrists than using the laptop keyboard. Very happy with this desk.

                This is a beautiful desk. I've had t for a couple of months now and am still thrilled with it. The only draw back is the two drawers are very very small. But I knew this going in and wanted adesk that didn't quite look like a desk. So I have a separate filng cabinet that has two drawers and that fits the bill.

                  Customer comments about Ellis 56x22 Desk:

                  I could not resist the clean timeless lines and the beautifully finished cherry wood even I would usually spend less $$ on a small desk.

                  It is so nice I make a constant effort to keep the desk uncluttered.

                  As others said it is a practical writing/reading desk and will work great for a laptop and/or monitor+keyboard+mouse.

                  I removed one * for a couple of small imperfections at the top that were not fully filled in and for the central drawer that needs to hide 1mm deper to be fully visually aligned. Small thing that I am lazy to bring up with R&B.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Order processing and white glove delivery were great. No complaints.

                  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.
