      I looked for a long time for the perfect table for my kitchen and couldn't find anything more perfect in terms of color, style and material in one piece than this table froom Room and Board. No other retailer had all of these. It is quality built and beautiful. I know my family will enjoy it for many, many years.

            Our entire office is Rm & Bd stone top parson table desks, maple roll under file cabinets, maple bookcases, maple lateral files, tall cabinets with file drawer bases with book case top. The maple top desks needed glass on top, so later orders changed to the stone. Our staff has great pride in their work areas because the furniture is so nice and shows we value their work environment.

              Customer comments about Parsons 60x30 29h Table:

              I purchased two Parsons tables. They appear to be of very good quality and a good value. I do not know how they will hold up over time, but they certainly look as though they will do so quite well.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I purchased two Parsons tables from the website, the first time I have purchased from Room and Board. The site was easy to use, the items arrived as scheduled, the delivery service was exemplary. Once delivered I realized that both the kind of wood I selected and the size of one of the tables I had specified was not going to work well in my space. I called Room and Board and was treated to a wonderful customer service experience. They had no qualms about exchanging what I had received for what I needed. Exchange delivery is scheduled for next week. This is not the experience I have had with other companies and I was very pleased and thankful for this level of customer service. It is often hard to tell what the actual piece will be like when ordering off a website, or even when seing the piece at a store and trying to imagine how it will work in your particular space. I rarely write reviews and when I do it is usually due to a dissapointment in service and/or quality. I am very glad that this time I felt compelled to take the time to write a review for expemplary customer service and product quality.

                          Yes, you can install an articulating keyboard tray onto the underside of a solid wood or MDF table top, that will allow the clearance for the steel apron base that runs along the perimeter of the desk.

                      • Q:

                        I'm thinking of buying the Parson's 72 x 30 with glass top to use as a home office desk. I like the size of the desk and the ability it will give me to spread out.

                        In the future, though, I may want to upgrade the top to a wooden one. Is this possible? That is, are there places in the metal frame that could receive the screws required to attach a wooden top to the frame?

                        I assume they are there on the tables with wooden tops, but since mine would be glass, I didn't know if they would be there on it as well.

                        Also, what exactly is involved in attaching the top to the frame?

                        Thanks!

                          You are correct. The steel tubing for the Parsons 54x18x29 console table is 2 inches square, so the clearance under the base is 27 inches.

                        Does the table base come in any other colors (i.e white)?

                          No, the Parsons table does not come in different base color options. However, our Pratt table collection is available in a white base and white top options.

                          MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard. The powdercoating on our MDF tops significantly enhances the durability by creating a seamless and hard surface. The powders do not contain any heavy metals, solvents, hazardous air pollutants, or VOCs, making it an environmentally friendly product. The care is similar to that of a wood top.

                          You can purchase the table tops by themselves from us - however we don't offer a mahogany top. Please call one of our Design Associates at 800-301-9720 they can share pricing on the various table tops with you.
