        Customer comments about Portica L-Shaped Desk 72x36 with 60x24 Return:

        This is unbelievably gorgeous. The wood grain is beautiful., My cabinet maker friend scoffed at the price until he saw the wood quality and how the tops were matched for grain and cut. The corner arrangement opens up so much useful space. The sleek lines prevent this big desk from overwhelming the space. I have my printer, scanner, appt book on return. Computer in corner, and a full desk for actual work!

        Service and delivery comments:

        The delivery reviews are true. Exceptional service. Advance notifications, on time, like clockwork. I had two deliveries so I was able to see two teams. The desk assy was professional. No pre -drilled holes, they aligned, leveled the return and desktop, THEN drilled. Perfect fit and finish.

        Service: after first delivery, i wiped desktop off and noticed a small area that felt rougher. It was not cosmetic, the sheen was the same, the color the same, it just felt grainier. I didn't request an exchange, since it wasn't cosmetically visible, but wanted to know if it could be a problem. They insisted on replacing. And if you can believe it, the second tops (they replaced both since they are matched), were even more beautiful grain than the first!!

          Looks great and sleek in my home office. Plenty of work space for laptop and paperwork.. I got the maple top with charcoal finish. It is exactly what I wanted looks wise. Pledge doesn't work well on the top though. It shows finger prints and smudges pretty easily. Despite this I would still buy the desk all over again because it is exactly the look and size I wanted and although convenient pledge isn't great for quick cleaning, it looks beautiful and functions great.

          Always professional, quick, friendly.

            I absolutely Love this desk. I wanted to replace the large bankers desk I had in my home office. This desk is perfect. I bought the 2 pieces that fit perfectly in the space. The cherry wood is beautiful. I purchased a matching 3 drawer file cabinet that fits perfectly under one side of the desk. The space is great. I have room for 2 laptops and all my papers. I would recommend this desk to anyone who needs a desk for a small space.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The desk was delivered very quickly, before I expected it. The desk arrived in perfect condition.

              Walnut looks great. However, the wooden top is inconsistently wider and narrower in places than the steel frame upon which it sits. An aesthetic matter but the premium price point warrants demand for something being in the variance of not easily noticeable to the casual eye.

                -For those in Winnipeg, have your items shipped to a border town (e.g. Pembina ND) to save $$ on shipping charges.

                          The differences are in the finish and the tubing size. Finishes are: Pratt/powdercoat color, Portica/stainless steel & Parsons/natural (dark) steel. The Pratt and the Portica are made with 1.5” tubing, and the Parsons has 2” tubing.

                        Q:

                        I am interested in the Portica l-shaped desk with a white MDF top. Two questions:
                        1. What is the overall height of the desk from the top surface to the floor,
                        2. How is the return attached to the desk; what is the mechanism.

                        Thanks!

                          The Portica desk with MDF top measures 29 inches from the floor to the top of the desk. Metal straps on the return bolt to the frame of the desk. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact our Design Associates at 800-301-9720.

                        Do you get to choose which side of the desk is the return, or is there only one orientation?

                          The returns on all of our L-shaped desks, including Portica, can be placed on either the right or left. The delivery drivers will assemble the desk to your specifications in your home.

                        I am interesting in understanding more about the durability of the white mdf top. Is that just a painted finish? How is it done to insure that the finish doesn't scratch off with heavier use?

                          Our MDF tops are made from medium density fiberboard with a powder coat finish applied to the MDF. The powder coating significantly enhances the durability by creating a seamless and hard surface. The tops should be cared for like a wood top, using care when using sharp objects near the surface. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth, mild detergent and warm water will keep it looking great.
