    • 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 Henning 56w 24d 30h Desk:

    I was initially very hesitant to purchase this desk based on many of the concerning comments described in prior reviews. However, when I saw the desk in person at one of the Room & Board stores, I was won over and decided to take a chance.

    I did not regret that decision. The construction is impeccable, and I have had no issues with the drawers or splinters or smells or anything of the like. Although this may be a reflection of consistency in production or bias in only people with negative reviews posting or changes in manufacturing since 2014, I was happy enough with my purchase that I thought it would be worthwhile to balance the reviews for this desk with at least one that was more recent and positive.

    Customer comments about Henning 56w 24d 30h Four-Drawer Desk:

    Laminate drawers are very high in VOC's. If you are sensitive to them AVOID THIS DESK. We have had to put the drawers on the porch in the hope that in a month or so they will finish out gassing -but the first 2 months have shown NO decrease in output. Really bad construction. Otherwise a great desk.

    Customer comments about Henning 56w 24d 30h Four-Drawer Desk:

    All my furniture has come from room and board, this is the first time that something was poorly constructed. I found particle board in the construction even though I paid for solid walnut. The dovetails at the drawers were badly assembled. The top stains easily, other furniture I have can easily handle a drink spill. The drawers were not sanded properly, splinters and chips were apparent. This would be a nice desk if it was finished properly and they used a honey wax similar to other Room and Board Products.

    Customer comments about Henning 56w 24d 30h Four-Drawer Desk:

    This desk is solidly constructed and it looks quite fashionable. The drawers operate well. I have only one complaint after having used this desk for a couple months. I use a macbook with rubber pads on the bottom. Whenever i slide the laptop on the desk surface, streaks appear on the table where the rubber pads contacted the desk surface. I'm not sure how to remove them -- rubbing them or using water does not seem to work.

      Perfect size, quality construction, gorgeous walnut etc.. This was a big splurge for me and I am so happy I purchased it. I am in medical school and spend most of my time studying at this very desk. The walnut grain lifts my spirits while sweating over microanatomy late into the night. I highly recommend this to students or anyone who spends a large amount of time at their desks.

        This desk is well made. The drawers are dovetail joined which means they were built to last. Maybe the other reviewer got a lemon, but mine is great not a shoddy piece at all. I love my new desk in walnut.

          Customer comments about Henning 56w 24d 30h Four-Drawer Desk:

          Saw this at the DC store. This is not a flimsy or cheap desk like the other reviewer said. I didn't buy it, but I had to jump in here because I was surprised how nice it was after reading the review and then going to see if myself. It's a tad too small for me but if it was bigger I would be buying this desk. Very solid feel and looks great in person.

              Came with a wobbly leg and unseated drawer. Also, it is not solid walnut throughout despite what the description suggests.

              Looks good, though.

              I'd rather be charged more and end up with a quality product. Hopefully, my example is an exception.
