    • 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.
    • Base: steel See full material details
    • Finish: powder-coat
    • Color: silver
    • Material Description: Steel is exceptionally durable and eco-friendly thanks to its ability to be made from recycled material and then recycled again at the end of the products life. Artisans hand-craft the steel using innovative technology and age-old techniques to shape the steel into pieces of almost any shape and size.

    Customer comments about Float® 60w 30d 27-47h Desk:

    Great desk as it adjusts up and down. It's not as fluid as I would like (takes a bit of effort to make it go up and down.) Love the finish and it's very solid.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Great delivery men - on time and so nice. The desk was not assembled correctly upon delivery, so the guys took it apart and fixed it so I didn't have to call and make an appointment to have someone else come out.

    The table easily moves up and down, even with 2 heavy computer monitors on top. It's so nice to be able to shift between sitting and standing during the work day. But .... within 2 weeks, the cherry tabletop already had very distinctive discoloration marks between the areas covered by my computer equipment and those that were not. TWO WEEKS and it already looks bad! And the desk does not get any direct sun. I talked with a furniture refinisher and he said cherry is notorious for this. Just a warning. I wish I had known before I ordered the cherry wood.

        I use this as my main desk/working space. There is plenty of room for my desktop iMac plus books and papers. We mounted a keyboard tray which means I can adjust the desk height according to what is comfortable from a viewing perspective while I can adjust the keyboard separately for maximum comfort. The desk height is easily adjusted and I do so several times a day as I switch between standing and sitting. So glad I purchased this desk.

          Customer comments about Float® 60w 30d 27-47h Desk:

          LOVE this desk. After sitting at my desk (in a Herman Miller aeron chair) for 8+ hours a day 5 days a week, I had the worst neck and shoulder pain. Someone recommended a height-adjustable desk and I knew that Room and Board would have something to suit my style. I was right. This desk is SO easy to use (seconds to go from sitting to standing and vice versa) and with very little effort involved. Highly recommend if you have back or neck trouble or just need to get up out of your seat but can't walk away from your work.

          Service and delivery comments:

          There was a slight snafu with delivery (came with the wrong color base on first attempt but they left the desk for me to use until the correct ensemble was delivered soon thereafter) but Room and Board customer service was stellar in resolving the issue.

            This is a very nice floating desk. It moves up or down quickly and smoothly. I don't load it much (I use it with a laptop), but it seems like it could handle a lot more.

            It's expensive, but I'd rather spend my money on ergonomic furniture than I would on back surgery.

            Service and delivery comments:

            My delivery experience couldn't be beat. The team arrived a few minutes earlier than the expected time window, and they had assembled the desk before they arrived. It took them around 5 minutes to finish.

              Beautiful desk. I got the walnut top with white legs, and just love the way it looks. Since I'm at my desk 8+ hours a day, it's great that I get to enjoy this beautiful walnut top. I now also have the keyboard tray by Humanscale which allows me to use the whole desk.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Great service and delivery. I had to modify my order (going from a silver to white legs) and they took care of it right away in my initial order process. The delivery was smooth too. Probably took less than 15 minutes, and came right on time.

                    I ordered this desk months ago, but I still haven't gotten a delivery of a working desk. The first time it was supposed to be delivered, I received a call the day before to tell me that they had just discovered that the desk was warped, so it wasn't going to be delivered with the rest of my items.

                    The second time, a couple weeks later, the delivery service called me at 7 am to tell me the desk was being delivered, but it turned out to be the wrong day. Then, when the delivery guys came out on the right day, the desk didn't actually move up or down at all. After trying to get it to work for a while, they left me with a broken desk and told me that they would schedule a person to come out to service the desk; the first available date was two weeks out. Two weeks later, the service person came and determined that he needed to order a new base entirely.

                    For how much this desk is, I don't think it's too much to ask to get a desk that actually moves up and down. It's been months and I still haven't gotten a desk that works.

                    Customer comments about Float® 60w 30d 27-47h Desk:

                    This is a very nice sit / stand desk that seems to work quite well for the intended purpose. However, it's quite expensive and frankly seems a bit over-priced. I purchased this with the sliver base and solid Walnut top in the 48x30 size for my home office. It fits my large 30" monitor, and 2 bookshelf speakers on it just fine, along with my keyboard and trackpad. There is still a bit of room to each side of my keyboard for other items such as a cup of coffee, misc. papers, etc.

                    The mechanism to raise and lower the desk requires no electricity and seems sturdy and it's also surprisingly easy to use. The negative to not having an electric motor is that it has no presets. So, you have to get used to manually setting it to your preferred height. For standing, this is typically around your bellie button area. With a bit of practice and time, this should become like second nature.

                    I bought this desk because I wanted a solid Walnut top (which is difficult to find) instead of MDF, and this one from Room & Board was the only one I could find that comes in that configuration. That said, you can probably spend half as much sourcing a set of sit/stand legs and then cutting and finishing a wood top yourself, or hiring a woodworker to make one for you. In my case, I was not willing to go through all that.

                    As others have mentioned, there are pre-drilled holes on the bottom of the wood top. I think this is because it is also used on other Room & Board pieces. This is a bit annoying and I feel like if I'm paying this much money, those holes should really not be there-an annoyance for sure, but not a deal killer.

                    This desk really gives the room an open feel because the middle underside is completely open. All of the hardware mechanism is tucked up high near where the top surface is mounted. This means that all of your cables will be seen and the desk does not include any sort of cable management at all. Being a stand desk, you need to have long enough cables for it to be able to go up too.

                    In all, this is quite a functional desk that is of very good quality especially with a sold wood top. I also like the different choices of available base metal colors as well. But it's priced quite high.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Very good delivery in every respect. The elevator in the building was down at the time of delivery and while they delivery guys mentioned it, they did not complain.
