Comments: What I love about this desk is that there is no drawer across the middle where my legs go! I am 5'7" with sort of long legs, and I really like to cross my legs and sometimes sit Kindergarten style in my desk chair. Almost every computer desk on the market has a keyboard drawer of some kind that just doesn't leave enough room for my legs (even when I don't cross them)! I'm not that tall for a woman, so I have no idea how taller men and women deal with this! The desk is also super solid. The whole desk is so well assembled it doesn't budge when you push on it from the front or side. Hopefully this will hold up as it ages over the years! And the wood and finish are just gorgeous! NOTE: I work full-time from my home office everyday, so I needed something comfortable and solid. I first saw this desk in a lighter finish in a kid's room in the R&B catalog, but rest assured, it is an adult sized desk! :)

Comments: Beautiful and functional. My daughter is incredibly proud of her room with its new gorgeous furniture. She works at her desk daily and enjoys having such a useful space in her own room where she has some peace and quiet in an otherwise busy household.

Comments: This do is big run I thought it would be, and same great R&B quality. Matches son's bed and bureau, which still look great after 7 years. Wish they still mad the hutch.

Comments: This is my 4th Sherwood piece. All are very nice. My only hesitation giving the desk (or any of the wax finish items I've purchased from Room & Board) a top rating is that I have concerns about their long-term durability given they share a house with my 3 and 6 year-old boys.

Comments: This desk is ideally sized. I'm not sure why it is in the kids section. It is by far the deepest of any of the desks and R&B.

Comments: My son is now doing his homework in his room. He has his own space and is able to concentrate better. We also got the hutch that goes on top which is nice for books and things.

- 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.
- Hardware: natural steel
- 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.
