By far this desk is the best one I've bought. I do architectural drafting work from home and I have been looking for a desk the would be big enough to lay out full size drawings. I didn't necessarily want to buy a drafting table, but I wanted a desk that combined both function and style. The Mayline Eastwinds desk fulfills both. The Espresso finish fit in perfectly with the decor of my living room and looks like a piece of modern furniture. I am very satisfied with my new desk.
