Re: Which Desk do you Like Best?

Well I'm torn.  Taking them as they are, I like #3 but in a larger size I love #6.

Re: Which Desk do you Like Best?

I'm actually looking for a new desk, and I like several so I just went to WM to look.  Maybe I'm using their website wrong - they don't seem to provide measurement details.  Also, the shipping on #6 looks to be $44.99 + $15.00 surcharge.  The desk itself is reduced from $299. to $249.

 

There is somethng about free shipping in a banner, but I'm no longer curious enough to try to find out whether the actual cost with tax is in the high 200's or the middle 300's.   I do have a desk that functions -  it's  ugly, but it's paid for!

For practical use, none of them. To me they're all about decor rather than function. None of these have keyboard trays or sufficient work space for me.

I like #6, it has a small footprint and it would actually work in my home.

Re: Which Desk do you Like Best?

I like desks & chairs w/wheels.  Easier to move around.

My secretary & comp desk has wheels as well as their chairs.

Right now I am looking for a printer desk w/wheels.  I have my eyes on this one....

None of them are really my style, but if I had to choose one, as is, I would choose #4. It's a little rustic/industrial, and I could probably make it work in my transitional/traditional decor.  I would replace the baskets with something more rustic. I would never choose the chair that's with it.

RE free shipping-

  • It looks like you can get free (regular) shipping, but they will tack on the $15 oversized fee.  I can't apply the coupon until I check out though, so I can't say for sure.  They are also on the rebates sites.

The details are there:
