    Customer comments about Basis 50x22 Desk:

    Desk functions well, however the drawer sags so when closed the drawer does not fit properly with the desk top - there is a gap in the middle. For the price, I was quite disappointed. On the puls side, work surface is large.

        Customer comments about Basis 50x22 Desk:

        This table/desk is the perfect size to accommodate my desktop computer, small lamp, and a writing surface. The drop-top drawer is designed to accommodate a keyboard and provides an opening at the back for a mouse cable. Lots of space left over in the drawer for other office-type needs, such as clips, post-its, etc. Love the look of the desk, which I have in walnut. You won't be disappointed.

          I have the walnut finish and i love the simplicity, functionality, design and comfort. the desk is solid hardwood and metal. Solid quality and great function. Obviously storage space has to come separately as the drawer space is just enough for the necessities.

          Service and delivery comments:

          delivery was easy to schedule and the product came quickly--other desks I was looking at would have taken several weeks longer for more $$.

                You might not appreciate the size of the drawers at first glance, but fully extended they double the work space which is a big benefit if you need to spread your work out. They are also great if you have to quickly remove the clutter and hide it away when you have to make the space presentable!

                      The main reason that this works for me is the size and the ability to have my laptop hide away in an instant so that the living room stays tidy. I really, really love the way the rich walnut wood adds warmth to my space.
