      this is my second slim desk. just deep enough to function well, not taking up too much space. the wide width gives a spacious feel and uncluttered look. i love the fact that it doesn't have drawers. accessible supplies, no danger of overfill. this desk in deep olive, almost black. gorgeous finish. works well w/any style furnishings you may have. love it!

      Simple and Sleek

      Verified Buyer

      Customer comments about Slim 36w 20d 30h Desk:

      I purchases this desk for my daughter's bedroom. It is simple and sleek which is exactly as I wanted. My only complaint is the desk does not sit flush on the floor. It's a bit shaky and I had to adjust myself with some furniture pads. Otherwise, I can recommend this piece.

      Great!

        Customer comments about Slim 50w 20d 30h Desk:

        I really love the Slim collection and this desk is great (and at a great price point). The navy powdercoat finish on mine gives a nice pop of color and wipes down easily when cleaning. The shelf under the desktop works great if you are a "stacker" like me. I'm able to arrange all of my careful piles of papers/books to have them easily available.

          Service was exceptional. I had to leave unexpectedly after I had confirmed the delivery with the driver and he was very professional in making sure the delivery went smoothly. This is my second desk, the first is used for a student's desk. The white finish shows more wear and tear. I still like the desk and ordered a second in the darker finish. I am happy with the purchase.

          • Writing desk

          Customer comments about Slim 36w 20d 30h Desk:

          We ordered this desk in white for three reasons:
          1) The nook where it sits is very tiny, so this was one of the only desks that would fit
          2) It has a separate open drawer area to store a keyboard
          3) The style was great & works well in a variety of spaces

          I would recommend buying it, but wanted to note that the top of the desk isn't completely level in all areas. When we put our laptop on it, the laptop sometimes feels like a restaurant table that needs to have the legs balanced, if that makes sense. It's slightly annoying, but overall works for our needs.

          Customer comments about Slim 50w 20d 30h Desk:

          Very well built and attractive. The slim lines make it appear light, but it is heavy and highly substantial in weight. It is a lovely desk and we ordered it in the Navy color; my only complaint is that it should have been made with built in plastic guards on the legs, like a Tolix chair. The legs are narrow and the delivery service attached round plastic pieces to the leg bottoms to protect the floors. These are inadequate because of the heft of the desk. They come off easily.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and the desk arrived in excellent condition.

          Powder Coat Scratches

          • Scratches

          Best Uses

          • Side table

          Customer comments about Slim 50w 20d 30h Desk:

          In the catalog and online this desk looked like it would suit my needs perfectly. I'm a visual designer and I work from home quite a bit. I chose to get the white powder coated desk, it appealed to me because it look industrial and seemed to be durable because it's made out of steel.

          My main complaints are that the powder coat is really thin and scratches and chips easily. Also when I type the desk surface moves my iMac due to the fact that the top of the desk is just thin metal. The vibrations carry throughout the metal. Also you can't use a mouse on the powder coated surface -- so I went to a trackpad.

          Overall the desk looks great in my tiny apartment. The two levels make more room for books or other materials. I expect some wear and tear on the piece and had a thought that eventually I could strip it down to just the raw steel, but then maybe I should have just got the steel one to begin with.

            This desk is exactly what my 13-year-old daughter needed: fun color, great design, perfect dimensions. We couldn't be happier. It's especially nice to have a non-wood surface in her bedroom.
