Gainsborough Office Desk
Lovely piece of furntiture
Very happy with my new desk which certainly has the capacity to store all my files and paperwork! One niggle is that the standard label holders, to identify files were too high and catch when closing the drawers! Am searching for alternative labelling !

Poor Functionality but Looks Nice
The desk is nicely made
If your house is small you need to realise that this is a big desk!
Filing drawers are very poor. For a start they are only capable of taking A4 file folders. Most desks are wider drawers that take Foolscap size
Also there is very little room above the files once they are in position. This means lack of space to put name headers on the files and any standard headers put on just catch the top all the time when drawers are pulled out or pushed in - A modification is needed for this. The runners that the files rest on in one drawer are warped so the files won't rest on it properly
Also top drawers on each pedestal are very shallow
This desk matches the tall Gainsborough storage unit. The storage unit is excellent for storing files
Just need a 2 drawer filing cabinet to match the desk as the filing drawers are also not very capacious
Summary - looks very good - but lacks functional space

Good solid desk
The desk is really solid and well made. Very heavy! Difficult for one person to move on their own. Lots of draw space

Contemporary and stylish
I love this desk. I bought it for my study at home and am really pleased with it. It isn't cheap but it's very solidly built, looks great and always gets admiring comments. It is quite large but it comes in three parts and the excellent delivery men build it for you so it will fit through a normal size door.
