Glass Office Desks


Pottery Barn Wright Desk
Believe it or not, I've already started shopping for furniture for our new house. With the furniture plan I've created on the floor plan, I know exactly what I need in the proper dimensions.
This weekend I stopped into one of my favorite stores for home furniture, DownEast Home & Clothing. Basically they take damaged and returned items from Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and similar stores. You can find really great things for a fraction of the cost. A lot of items are noticeably damaged, but a lot of them are not. I only had a few minutes to pop in. I wasn't looking for anything in particular (you never know when or where you will find something!), but I stumbled across this amazing glass table.

Beveled glass edge. Chrome trestle legs. Very sturdy and heavy.
The 36" x 60" top will be great for a large work area.


My first thought was that it would make a great desk in my office. I had been thinking I wanted a glass desk but I wasn't sure of the practicality of it (no drawers, files, etc.).
I noticed a small Williams Sonoma Home logo under the leg so I knew it was good quality. DownEast priced it retail for $800 and clearanced it for $150! Oh how I fretted over whether or not to get it! I didn't have my floor plans with me, so I couldn't remember how big the room was or what size the desk needed to be. Initially, I ended up not getting it.
Once I got home, I wanted to find it online to get a better look, so I googled "williams sonoma glass table" and the Mercer Dining Table came up. Retail price? $1550! And that doesn't include shipping! Of course I immediately decided to buy it - I called DownEast first thing Monday morning hoping and praying they still had it. Alas, they did!
I now own the Mercer Dining Table that I will use as my office desk. We'll have to keep it in storage until the house is done, but I'm glad I can at least check one item off my list.
