Modular Office Desks (Pottery Barn?)

gashopperAugust 10, 2009

Hi folks:

Following up on the "Don't make me buy Pottery Barn" thread, I am looking for decent quality modular office desks in a style that would fit a nice home w/ an older look to it (crown molding).

1) I don't want glass/metal desks that look too modern.

2) I want the pieces to fit into a small office as well as be easily moved through apartment doors (not too large to fit through a standard door and around hallway corners).

3) Modular, able to be expanded through the addition of various pieces (file cabinets, worksurfaces, etc.)

I really like the idea of the "Build Your Own - Bedford Home Office System Components" from Pottery Barn, as this set seems to meet the needs above. Also, I would think that the white version could be painted if any scratches occurred... However, I am worried that they're MDF and still pretty expensive:

Does anyone have any suggestions on alternative products or recommendations/warnings/comments about this product?

Thank you all ~ Garden Web is awesome! :)

I am also looking for something similar for my home office, and a friend recommended Ballard Designs. I haven't decided exactly what to get yet, but I'm leaning toward that instead of pottery barn's Bedford line for a couple of reasons. One, they have a much larger selection of pieces (and you can pick exactly which types of drawers you want for a desk set up, whereas pottery barn doesn't let you do that). Another reason is that theirs is solid wood and pottery barn is not. I don't remember for sure, but I think the prices are pretty similar, or maybe a bit cheaper at Ballard Designs. Check out their web site, they have a downloadable brochure with all the dimensions and it makes it a little easier to visualize. They have a 15% off online coupon from time to time and if you sign up for their emails, they let you know when.
