      Customer comments about Portica 60x30 L-Shaped Desk with 36x18 Return:

      Looks great and sleek in my home office. Plenty of work space for laptop and paperwork.. I got the maple top with charcoal finish. It is exactly what I wanted looks wise. Pledge doesn't work well on the top though. It shows finger prints and smudges pretty easily. Despite this I would still buy the desk all over again because it is exactly the look and size I wanted and although convenient pledge isn't great for quick cleaning, it looks beautiful and functions great.

      Always professional, quick, friendly.

        I absolutely Love this desk. I wanted to replace the large bankers desk I had in my home office. This desk is perfect. I bought the 2 pieces that fit perfectly in the space. The cherry wood is beautiful. I purchased a matching 3 drawer file cabinet that fits perfectly under one side of the desk. The space is great. I have room for 2 laptops and all my papers. I would recommend this desk to anyone who needs a desk for a small space.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The desk was delivered very quickly, before I expected it. The desk arrived in perfect condition.

          Customer comments about Portica 72x30 L-Shaped Desk with 36x18 Return:

          Walnut looks great. However, the wooden top is inconsistently wider and narrower in places than the steel frame upon which it sits. An aesthetic matter but the premium price point warrants demand for something being in the variance of not easily noticeable to the casual eye.

            -Great construction
            -nice packaging while shipping
            -Walnut finish is very nice...perhaps a bit lighter in colour than the images. Feels expensive (as it should).
            -Assembly (L-shaped desk) was very easy.

            Service and delivery comments:

            -For those in Winnipeg, have your items shipped to a border town (e.g. Pembina ND) to save $$ on shipping charges.

                    My Portica L shaped desk has helped transform my crowed bedroom/home office into a comfortable functional attractive space. I ordered with a frosted glass top and in combination with the stainless steel legs, the desk is light and helps give the illusion of taking up less space and making the room appear more open than a heavier finish would. The L shape is perfect for my computer, phone, printer, lamp and writing area. With room to spare. Great purchase

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    I was looking to combine my bedroom and home office in an attractive and uncluttered manner. I had just purchased the Copenhagen bedroom set in walnut with stainless steel, when my design associate suggested the Portica Desk with frosted glass. It looks perfect. Not too heavy and helps to open the whole room up. Delivery and assembly were as always, prompt, courteous and knowledgeable

                        I am interested in the Portica l-shaped desk with a white MDF top. Two questions:
                        1. What is the overall height of the desk from the top surface to the floor,
                        2. How is the return attached to the desk; what is the mechanism.

                          The returns on all of our L-shaped desks, including Portica, can be placed on either the right or left. The delivery drivers will assemble the desk to your specifications in your home.

                        I have a client who wants to put a small storage rolling file under this desk. What is the clearance from the floor to the bottom of the metal frame?

                        If later on a corner desk is not needed, can the smaller portion of the L desk be removed from the longer portion so as to use the longer portion as a 4 legged desk?

                          Yes. The two-legged return can be removed and the four-legged Portica desk used as a free-standing piece.

                        Q:

                        I am interesting in understanding more about the durability of the white mdf top. Is that just a painted finish? How is it done to insure that the finish doesn't scratch off with heavier use?

                          Our MDF tops are made from medium density fiberboard with a powder coat finish applied to the MDF. The powder coating significantly enhances the durability by creating a seamless and hard surface. The tops should be cared for like a wood top, using care when using sharp objects near the surface. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth, mild detergent and warm water will keep it looking great.

                          Yes, the Portica desk return can be attached to either side of the desk. You can specify which side when you schedule your delivery.

                        Q:

                        If the Portica table is 28 inches high, is that to the bottom of the metal base on which the top sits? Or is that the measurement to the table top? We are looking at ordering one with a frosted glass top.

                        Thank you!

                          The 28"h is to the top of the base and with a glass top the overall height would be 28 1/2"h.
