Spotlight Ebony 48 Writing Desk is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a great small desk If you're looking for a simple modern and understated desk then it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and Efficient We needed desks for two of us to fit into a 10'x13' study. We decided on the 48" version instead of the 58" version to leave room for other furniture in the room. The desks are solid, space efficient, and right for our needs. We've chosen to arrange them in an L shape in the center of the room, rather than separately on different walls or back-to-back. But, they can be easily rearranged if we decide to make changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I purchased the black desk for my college age son's room. It is very nice and well made. I added a lucite top to protect it from scratching when he is working. I will be a great piece for his first apartment in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted. Solid and sturdy. I got this for my 15 year old's room to use to study. The desk is very well made. Solid and very, very sturdy. The pull out drawer can double as a keyboard tray and slides smoothly. The design is clean and modern enough to work well through high school, college and beyond. We are very happy with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gem! I needed a desk to fill a small space from which I will work from home. I wanted a desk with generous space on top but no heaviness in design. The Spotlight Ebony has exceeded my expectations. The desk top provides enough room for my desktop computer, and papers I'm working with. The draw is large and fits all writing instruments, extra paper, and any other supplies. And the Spotlight looks great. As a bonus, the crossed legs provide a nice spot for my yoga mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Desk! I started my search for a good, solid desk for when I started working from home full time. This was my favorite desk early on and nothing compared. It's sleek and stylish while being minimal but the storage drawer is awesome! I have enough room for my laptop, monitor, lamp and a few other items to make the desk feel personal on top while in the drawer can keep essentials like supplies, notebooks, and folders(plus my 14" laptop if I wanted to put it away for the weekend). It's a great one and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great desk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking sturdy desk! I bought this desk for my office which is fairly small and it fits perfectly. It looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This desk is a great fit for a small office area in our den. The "hidden" drawer with organizer keeps the desktop clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work desk! I chose this desk because I was looking for one with a drop-down front for a wireless keyboard since I work on a laptop. The drawer slides so smoothly, has generous storage space, and the drop-down front works like a charm. I also love that I have plenty of leg room under this classically designed desk. The only downfall was a small chip in the corner of the veneer that we didn't notice until we were assembling it. But since the closest store is 2 hours away, we just decided to live with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and sophisticated but also funcational I am so happy with this purchase and this desk. It is sophisticated and functional and creates a pretty spot in my home. The work space is wonderful and there is enough space for a large monitor, keyboard and laptop (as needed). I also have my router on the corner of the desk and do not feel crowded. I purchased the 48" desk and it is ideal for my space. In addition, the entire shopping experience was exceptional from my purchase in the store to delivery at my home. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and elegant desk. I love this desk. Besides looking modern and elegant, this desk has great space on top to be able to put a computer monitor and room for paperwork. Below the counter top there is nice hideaway drawer to keep your computer keyboard and mouse hidden. It also features a tray embedded in the pull out drawer to put office supplies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and modern! This desk looks great in my office. It's sleek and modern. It does show fingerprints and items like telephones (with plastic bottoms) mar the finish - to protect it, I had a glass top made. Crate & Barrel's service is unbelievable! I called them because there's a nick on the slat between the legs; I wanted to know if they could provide a replacement part. They were so polite and friendly. They apologized for the inconvenience and insisted upon delivering a new one. Wow! What a terrific store to do business with.I also ordered the filing cabinet which is well made, looks terrific, and holds a lot. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
