Don' t buy if you don' t tolerate VOC's

By Eclectic buyer

from Santa Monica, CA

Style Eclectic

Pros

  • Good Surface Area
  • Great design

Cons

  • Poor finish
  • Poor quality

Best Uses

  • Smaller Offices
  • Writing desk

Customer comments about Henning 56x24 Four-Drawer Desk:

Laminate drawers are very high in VOC's. If you are sensitive to them AVOID THIS DESK. We have had to put the drawers on the porch in the hope that in a month or so they will finish out gassing -but the first 2 months have shown NO decrease in output. Really bad construction. Otherwise a great desk.

Pros

  • Good Surface Area
  • Great design

Cons

  • Dovetails Badly Assembled
  • Non Durable Top
  • Particle Board
  • Plywood Drawers Have Chip
  • Poor finish
  • Poor quality

Best Uses

Customer comments about Henning 56x24 Four-Drawer Desk:

All my furniture has come from room and board, this is the first time that something was poorly constructed. I found particle board in the construction even though I paid for solid walnut. The dovetails at the drawers were badly assembled. The top stains easily, other furniture I have can easily handle a drink spill. The drawers were not sanded properly, splinters and chips were apparent. This would be a nice desk if it was finished properly and they used a honey wax similar to other Room and Board Products.

Great Desk (with one annoyance)

By William

from Chicago

Style Mid-century modern, Minimalist

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Drawers/doors function well
  • Great design
  • Quality construction

Cons

  • Poor finish

Best Uses

  • Homework
  • Writing desk

Customer comments about Henning 56x24 Four-Drawer Desk:

This desk is solidly constructed and it looks quite fashionable. The drawers operate well. I have only one complaint after having used this desk for a couple months. I use a macbook with rubber pads on the bottom. Whenever i slide the laptop on the desk surface, streaks appear on the table where the rubber pads contacted the desk surface. I'm not sure how to remove them -- rubbing them or using water does not seem to work.

    Perfect size, quality construction, gorgeous walnut etc.. This was a big splurge for me and I am so happy I purchased it. I am in medical school and spend most of my time studying at this very desk. The walnut grain lifts my spirits while sweating over microanatomy late into the night. I highly recommend this to students or anyone who spends a large amount of time at their desks.

      This desk is well made. The drawers are dovetail joined which means they were built to last. Maybe the other reviewer got a lemon, but mine is great not a shoddy piece at all. I love my new desk in walnut.

      Nice desk

      By DC shopper

      from DC

      Pros

      • Great design
      • Quality construction

      Cons

      • Too small

      Best Uses

        Customer comments about Henning 56x24 Four-Drawer Desk:

        Saw this at the DC store. This is not a flimsy or cheap desk like the other reviewer said. I didn't buy it, but I had to jump in here because I was surprised how nice it was after reading the review and then going to see if myself. It's a tad too small for me but if it was bigger I would be buying this desk. Very solid feel and looks great in person.

        not great

        By andy

        from San Francisco, CA

        Pros

          Cons

          • Drawers/doors stick
          • Poor quality

          Best Uses

            Customer comments about Henning 56x24 Four-Drawer Desk:

            Came with a wobbly leg and unseated drawer. Also, it is not solid walnut throughout despite what the description suggests.

            Looks good, though.

            I'd rather be charged more and end up with a quality product. Hopefully, my example is an exception.

              • DESIGN ASSOCIATE

                A:

                The thickness of the top on the Henning desk is ¾ of an inch. Note: Clamping something to the desk could damage the finish and possibly leave an indentation.

                A:

                Yes, the Henning desk has a natural oil-and-wax finish. Our Satin Wax is a great way to protect and preserve the wood. Satin Wax for Walnut will help revitalize the wood color, but the regular non-tinted can be used as well.

              1. Is this desk made of solid wood throughout? Or are the other materials?
