    • Finish: oil-and-wax
    • Material Description: Cherry adds timeless warmth and character to your room. Even after cherry 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 cherry ranges in color from light brown with pink undertones to reddish brown and will beautifully darken to a deep, reddish brown over time.
    • Base: natural steel See full material details
    • Finish: lacquer
    • Material Description: Our natural steel is domestically sourced from 99% recycled raw materials and hand-selected for consistent color and texture. Hand-welding can create unique markings, as well as color change, due to the heating and shaping of the steel. Subtle variations in color, along with the individuality of each craftsmans work, ensure that no two pieces are alike.

LINEAR CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

LINEAR CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Learn how every part of our American-made Linear collection is created, from the materials and hardware to construction methods and finish details.
Benchmade Construction

Benchmade Construction

Each Linear piece is constructed one at a time by an expert artisan. The entire case is reinforced with time-tested joinery, built and assembled by hand and then hand sanded and finished before it comes to you as a fully assembled piece. Our commitment to benchmade construction ensures you receive furniture that's built to last a lifetime.

Solid Wood

Solid Wood

We source our solid woods within the U.S., which has some of the strictest forestry standards in the world. Every board is hand selected for color consistency and strategically placed to create a cohesive appearance. The natural markings of the wood make each Linear piece one of a kind. The Linear collection features solid wood tops, sides, doors, drawer fronts and bases (when a wood base is selected).

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Linear pieces have wood veneer interior panels, shelves, drawer boxes and bottom panels. The standard wood veneer back is unfinished, but you may customize Linear to include a finished back for an additional cost. A solid wood layer is applied to premium grade medium density fiberboard to create the wood veneer for Linear. This combination of materials increases structural integrity because it doesn’t expand or contract with seasonal humidity changes like solid wood. Our wood veneers are the best quality in the industry and CARB 2 compliant for low emissions.

Finish

Finish

A lacquer finish is applied to stained pieces and oil and wax finish is applied to natural wood pieces to showcase and protect the natural beauty of the material. Both finishes are applied by hand for a flawless, consistent appearance that is smooth to the touch.

Drawers and Glides

Drawers and Glides

Each drawer front is solid wood and perfectly aligned within the frame of the piece. The drawer boxes have Baltic birch plywood sides connected with dovetail joinery and a wood veneer bottom. Full-extension ball-bearing glides allow you to see the entire drawer when fully open and glide smoothly even when the drawer is filled to its 100-pound capacity. Drawers are hand sanded and waxed for a smooth, snag-free finish.

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

All doors and door frames are solid wood and precisely inset within the frame of the cabinet. Concealed, fully adjustable hinges open 110 degrees and give you the option to adjust the door alignment for perfect functionality through years of use. Interior latches keep doors securely closed. Shelves are wood veneer and rest on adjustable steel pins. The solid wood or steel knobs, pulls and bases are handcrafted exclusively for Room & Board.

      We have a small nook in the 2nd floor hallway where we put this piece to keep our bills and stationery organized. The quality shows and the cherry wood is beautiful. The drawer gliding system is good quality and the pull-out drawer shelf is practical. As for another Linear piece I ordered at the same time I found the doors' closing system too tight for the small door knobs.

      The doors stuck making them impossible to open with the little metal pulls not providing enough leverage, so I used plyers to squeeze the mechanism together and now I can open the doors.

      Needed a place to store my printer and modem. This is the perfect width to fit my space. And it matches the linear console I'm using for TV stand/more office storage.

      Customer comments about Linear 56h 26w Office Armoire with Steel Base:

      Nutshell: This is just not designed well to be a comfortable desk/writing surface, the pull-out tray moves and doesn't lock in place. Just think of it as a storage cabinet. If you are looking for a secretary - type piece, this is not it.

      I have a very small library and was trying to add a compact storage and work/writing/desk surface to the room for bill paying, working on laptop etc.

      Like other folks, it's a definite disadvantage to not see the item in person. The sales persons showed us the wine cabinet/bar as a comparison. When I saw the item for the first time in my house, it appeared boxy and short. It is way too deep. Think - very boxy chest of drawers. My husband said it's like an R2D2 / Star Wars droid.

      Also please note we ordered the "Shell" stain / non-stock color (which was supposed to look beachy) but it had a very pink hue to it.

      Ours pull-out tray had damage and like the other reviewers, the knobs chipped in 1 day and are not very easy to pull.

      We are unfortunately returning simply due to the aesthetics and design function of the piece.

      Room and Board has been wonderful. Though they really do need to get some of these pieces visible somehow and definitely should at LEAST show on their website how this piece looks when opened. We do have to pay a restock fee since it was a custom order.

      Customer comments about Linear 56h 26w Office Armoire with Steel Base:

      There's a reason R&B doesn't show this piece open - it's not very functional. That said, here's what I did:
      1) Remove the bottom closure hardware for the doors. You still have a pair at the top, and you gain a clear space for your laptop.
      2) Get some better hinges. These open only 110 degrees. Hardwaresource.com has some Blum hinges that open to 170 degrees. Big improvement!
      3) Didn't need a 17" deep shelf on top. I cut it in half lengthwise and now have 2 adjustable shelves for books.
      4) Knobs definitely need to be changed out. I had trouble opening the R&B-supplied set.
      5) Had to lay down plastic on equipment areas because the rubber feet on bottom leave black marks. They clean up, though, with Mr.Clean sponge.
      6)There was a chip on the finish of the metal base. I had to buy some not-quite matching paint to disguise it.
      I didn't notice any problem with odors. And the piece holds quite a lot if you know how to trick it out and are handy with some tools. I'd also like to put a magnet strip along the side to hold containers for office supplies, and make a space for paper management. So, I would recommend this to a friend with reservations. Be creative!

        Customer comments about Linear 56h 26w Office Armoire with Steel Base:

        I purchased this piece without seeing an example, but was told that it closely resembled other pieces on display from the "Linear" line. (I was told by my sales representative that the Denver showroom is half of the size of others and that they couldn't stock the full R&B catalogue.)

        One disappointment with the piece is with the hardware- although well built and sturdy, the standard kitchen cabinet hinges and (oddly colored) door clasps detract significantly from the over-all aesthetic of the piece when the monitor doors are open and suggest a "cheaper" construction than the material (walnut) of the casework deserves. The hardware is also unfortunately located- the clasps, located at the top and bottom of the doors, sit directly, intrusively on the monitor shelf.

        Another disappointment is with the powerful chemical odor of the finish.

        Despite these two concerns, the piece is otherwise nicely made and attractive.

        Customer comments about Linear 56h 26w Office Armoire with Steel Base:

        Used as an office / computer armoire stashed away in a corner of the dining room. Fits a large-ish, wide-format monitor (22"), router and compact scanner on the upper shelf with a horizontal desktop PC on the lower shelf. Pull-out tray is great for keyboard / mouse / writing. Smaller drawer works well for stashing miscellany and larger drawer fits a reasonable number of hanging files.

        The piece looks great and works extremely well as a discreet home office for a professional who frequently needs to log-in to the office after work a few hours each week.

        The walnut is gorgeous but scratches quite easily (thanks to the toddlers).

        Could earn five stars with a lower price, sturdier finish and some additional cable-management and other PC-related storage configuration options (eg. a roll-out compartment for a printer).

        I live in a studio apartment and this product was a great solution to my space limitations and need for storage. The pull out work shelf is perfect for use with a laptop computer, which can be tucked away when not in use. This is a quality piece of furniture that will last for a long time. The design has a nice retro-modern feel and is constructed from beautiful solid wood, not particle board, which is harder to come by these days. The only drawback is because the wood has an stain and oil coating, it is more easily scratched, so be careful if you place items on it that could scratch it.

            We bought two of these two years ago to use as desks for our two boys. They coordinate well with the Riley collection although the finish is slightly different. The nice thing is that this piece doesn't take up a lot of room and you can open it up to pull out the work space, or close it to hide all the mess Kids' desks are messy and I love that the clutter is hidden. THe finish is holding up great-- hides scratches. We have the cherry color. Love them!

We encourage you to return or exchange items in a timely manner because damage or wear will result in an adjustment to your final refund.
