Comments: Updating my review from April 15, 2014. I was contacted by R&B after posting my review of Apr 14 - they wanted to make me happy by offering a full refund, or a replacement desk, or a replacement top. As I did like the desk, I decided to keep the base and choose a different top. I went with a larger top - the standard 60x30 maple top (I'd previously purchased the 48 x 30 Solid Maple with Charcoal Stain). Again, the transaction was smooth, and I was amazed at the professionalism and follow-through of R&B Design Associate Sherri Klopfer. What an incredible asset R&B has in her as an employee! Now I can truly say that I LOVE my desk. There are holes on the bottom of the new desk top, but they are fewer in number than the old one. The maple desk top itself is beautiful, and unlike the charcoal stained top, seems durable and not so fragile. Thank you, Room & Board (and Humanscale)!!


In recent years floating-style furniture has emerged as an effective way to create the illusion of more space. In bathrooms, floating-style vanities free up floor space, creating the feeling of slightly more square footage. In more decorative spaces — such as living rooms, bedrooms and offices — floating shelves keep everyday items within arm's reach in a sleek, light and airy manner. By applying this same principle to a workspace, the same light, airy, space-saving illusion can be achieved to support multiple functions, including working from home.


A: Hello Corey, the 39.5 inches refers to the height of the assembled desk with shelving from top to bottom and does not include the space between the floor and bottom of the desk. The desk itself sits 14.25 inches from the base of the assembled item. The optimal height off the floor will depend on your personal preferences, but standard desk height for an adult between 5'8" and 5'10" is 28-30 inches. Thank you for shopping with us!

Comments: I've been looking for something like this for over three years and when I saw it at the Room and Board showroom, it was just a matter of time until I ordered my very own. The different sizes are fantastic. I got a 48" and a friend got the 60"..it really just depends on the size of your space and how much you need on your desk. For me, the smaller size was still a larger space than my previous desk. It is a BEAUTIFUL solid wood desktop and the desk itself has a modern look that also blends well in my more traditional decor. I got the steel grey legs. The best part though, is the absolute ease of raising and lowering the desk. It's simple to do, you can do it one handed and I move it several times in the course of my day. It's a lifesaver for my back and I couldn't be happier.

If the four walls of your home are a little closer together than you’d like, you’ll need a compact solution to incorporate an office workspace into your pad. Whether you’re routinely working from home or just need a place to set down a book, these 15 wall mounted desks are a super smart and ultra modern option. Storage space might be scant, so be sure to have some workspace organization tricks up your sleeve and seek creative solutions for extra space saving, like mounting floating shelves nearby. Plus most of these could be positioned at the proper height to make your very own standing desk.

With clean lines and an array of top and base options, this ergonomic and health-conscious desk complements any work environment.


Comments: Great desk; was excited to buy from R&B for the custom top. The Solid Maple with Charcoal Stain is pretty, but nicks EXTREMELY easily. I was completely surprised by the underside of the desk surface - there are a LOT of extra holes that go almost to the desktop itself (I understand the top is used for different pieces of furniture, but this is a bit much). Also, I expected the underside of the desk to look like the top, but it has jagged drill holes and knots. very disappointed in the desktop.

Yes, the backs are indeed open to the wall, which as in your situation we were happy to discover since we too had wall switches to contend with. To note, in order to place the desk at an appropriate height for our needs, we did have to partially cover our light switches. Otherwise, the desk would have been too high up, as the back of the topmost shelf does have an overhang that extends about 4 inches from beneath that top shelf. It works well for us, though! The sundries that ended up in those cubbies covers the partially covered switch and it's simple to reach in to access the switch. We are so pleased with the desk we ordered two so that both my husband and I can work in the same room at the same time!
