Customer comments about Linear 32h 83w Office Storage with Steel Base:

The fact that this unit was customizable brings it from 3 stars to 4. We had specific needs for a long but shallow storage cabinet behind a long couch for storing our everyday things out of sight. Room and Board made this possible by offering custom orders. The cherry is solid and heavy- however it appears that one side of the bottom of the unit is faded as compared to the rest. Cheapens the look. Disappointed. The doors are IMPOSSIBLE to open for two fold reasons. The first is that the wood handles are smooth rectangles, they are groove-less, and there is nothing to grip. The second reason the doors are impossible to open is that the catch mechanism is too tight. We had to pinch each mechanism with pliers until it became easier. Until then, I had to sit on the floor, with a foot braced against the unit, and two hands on the handle to pull the door open. It was impossible any other way. Truly unacceptable. HOWEVER...if you are looking for a piece which is CHILD PROOF this would actually be an awesome solution without having to ruin the look with plastic child locks. Store your non toxic valuables inside and they will be absolutely safe from your children until they are a good 12 years old (my 9 year old couldn't open it at all). Also, the additional shelves are faded looking, they look cheap and do not match the wood..they are MDF. I returned them. I invested in this unit because I could customize it to fit my space-for that I am grateful. Otherwise, I would not recommend this unit for this price. Surely there is something cheaper and just as solid which can be made with doors that OPEN and wood that is NOT faded.

Cons

Customer comments about Linear 32h 67w Office Storage with Steel Base:

I recommend this product for the uses mentioned. Very good quality. I also ordered a custom made glass top because I put it near the window and I put/water plants on it.
However, the handles on the door have to be reviewed. It is a design problem. There is nothing to grip so the doors are hard to open, so I leave them ajar.

      Customer comments about Linear 32h 83w Office Storage with Steel Base:

      I have been looking for quality office furniture for some time. I chose Room and Board because I could get solid wood and delivery to northern New Mexico. I had never seen Room and Board furniture before so I was a little worried about ordering furniture sight unseen.
      The service representatives I placed my order with were very helpful, making sure I understood what type of finish I was ordering. The delivery service - amazing (thanks Justin and I can't remember the other guy's name). You two braved a snow storm and below zero weather and a long drive from your previous stop to get here right on schedule. The furniture was in pristine shape when it got here.
      But more about the piece: I had a custom cabinet made (83wx32hx20d) and I could not be happier with the results. Just a word of caution - this piece is HEAVY. If you think you need to move it, I recommend going with several smaller pieces instead of 1 big piece.
      I chose the walnut finish. It is a light to medium stain that really shows the grain of the wood and that is exactly what I had hoped for. I paired it with a Parson's L shaped desk (glass top and black legs). Together these pieces line a wall and corner that has a large window view of the mesa.
      Thank you Room and Board.

        This is a wonderful piece of furniture. Not only is it beautiful, but it is practical as well. The drawers work well and have ample storage. The only small drawback is the grip on the pull handles on the cabinet doors. I sometimes have to use two hands to grip them well enough to open. Otherwise, I am totally happy with this product.

          Customer comments about Linear 32h 83w Office Storage with Steel Base:

          I bought the 63" piece in cherry with natural steel base & pulls. It is beyond gorgeous - more like a work of art. The craftsmanship is incredible. I'm sure this piece will last a lifetime.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I loved that R&B called me 2 days ahead of the delivery date to let me know the 2-hour time window - that allowed me to plan the rest of my day in advance. [@] did a great job! They aren't just delivery guys - they're true professionals who know a lot about the furniture. When they finished, every piece was placed perfectly; every bit of packaging was removed, and there wasn't a ding or smudge or any wall or surface. Best delivery I've ever experienced! This particular piece is very heavy and had to go up to the second floor. They had to remove the drawers and base to get it up the stairs, but they did so without making a single ding on any wall. My one very minor commment - the two cabinet doors are a bit hard to open, but it's no big deal to me.

                    It would certainly fit. The only thing to consider is whether or not the height of the TV would be comfortable for you. It is only a matter of personal comfort.
