Product Description

Spotlight is our classic campaign desk, but with a contemporary, refined turn. Its crossed legs—stained crisp white—support a sleek tabletop with a slim, wide drawer that slides out to reveal smart storage and flips into a work surface. Designed by Mark Daniel, the desk drawer's left side is divided into organizational compartments for office supplies; the right is sized just right for a keyboard or laptop. The Spotlight White 48" Writing Desk is a Crate and Barrel exclusive.

Spotlight White 48 Writing Desk is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and functional I've had the desk for about a month now and love it. The drawer is a great size, allowing me to keep my keyboard and mouse tucked away and can pull the drawer out to use. Design is sleek and modern, looks great in my room. Only issue is that the drawer doesn't stay completely closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect desk! This desk was the perfect addition to my home office. Along with the Spotlight bookshelf, it is chic and functional. The pull down front door allows me to store my laptop and other much-needed items easily. The sleek design fits beautifully in the "my space" I've created for my work!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful desk, stains too easily I have had this desk for a few months, and already have noticed a significant amount of staining. I am not a particularly sloppy person either. I think C&B should consider surfacing the desk with a different finish since it seems to absorb anything with color. Besides that, its beautiful and very functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desk, clean and simple I bought this desk about three weeks ago, however we have had the larger ebony version for several years without any issues. Both desks are easy to clean and offer good storage. The larger version has three drawers and the smaller one has one drawer. Coming from a desk that had zero storage, this desk was great. Clean with a dry dust cloth and you shouldn't have issues. Like I said we have had the black one for 8 plus years and it only has minimal scratches and wear on it. What you would expect from any furniture you use daily. It is easy to touch up the scratches and wear marks when a furniture pen. I would highly recommend this desk or the ebony version. It fits very well in a contemporary/modern designed space.Also - there was an earlier review about assembly, these desks came completely assembled and when delivered where put right setup right where we asked the delivery team to put them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Color! Before purchasing the white spotlight desk I had owned the larger black version for several years. I was going for a different look and the smaller size and color did the trick. The white is more prone to chip on the edge but it's not that noticeable with a large desk calendar. The color and size really opened up my small study area. I love the simple style and the desk drawer is very functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our new desk!!! Spent a lot of time searching for a modern white desk. Saw the Spotlight desk @ our local store & the minute I sat down I knew it was the one! Very solid with good amount of leg & knee room. It is made very well, packed well, arrived safely without a single knick or scratch. Took an easy half hour to assemble. (Don't let the drawer slide out when you turn it over!!!). The pull out drawer is so sturdy & useful just what I needed for IPad & keyboard to store easily without all the clutter on the desk top. Now if they would make more matching bookcase options!!! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and Simple I just bought this desk and put it together myself. It looks great in my home office. My only complaint...I was told there would be assembly directions in the box, but there weren't any.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect desk I work from home and wanted to get away from my old big chunky desk. This desk is sturdy, sleek, and well made. The hidden drawers are perfect for "to do" work. The drawers slide out easily and are quiet. Chose white to give my office a modern update. Easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and classic We bought this desk for our first home as a married couple. The desk is sturdy, has clean lines, and makes our office bright, modern and welcoming. If you are looking for a desk that will look good and last for years, this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grounding Your Writing This is a beautifully designed and finished desk with a well positioned foot rest. The surface space is just write for a contemplative journaling or a more mundane note jotting. Add a vase with flowers and it becomes a spot for envisioning ideas. Be careful with the top, it does scratch rather easily.
