Hooker Furniture European Renaissance II Executive Computer Desk Review – A gorgeous piece of furniture

Hooker Furniture is one of the premier makes of executive office desks, and this one, the European Renaissance II is one of the best they have to offer. This is a high-end executive desk that will last you a long, long time.

Since it is a high-end desk, you can expect supreme build quality and the best wood on this desk. The looks of it will grab attention from anyone that is a fan of antique designs.

But, with all that in mind, does it do enough for this high price? And, is it for everyone?

Let’s see.

Features and construction

Hooker Furniture European Renaissance II 73" Executive Computer Desk

Like we said, with this piece of high-end furniture you can expect a fantastic build quality, and in that department, Hooker Furniture delivers. The European Renaissance II uses a blend of Myrtle Burl veneers and cherry veneers. Cherry is strong wood and a nice looking one also, as it gives this desk kind of a mix of red-brown color. Myrtle Burl, on the other hand, has a blond color, and that makes these two work really great together.

Of course, this desk uses solid wood as well, and that gives it the weight. It weighs exactly 343 lbs, and that makes it a very serious executive desk that just screams confidence. It is one of the best desks that we have seen, and the build quality and gorgeous woods truly make your time spend behind this desk wonderful.

The desk has a total of 7 drawers, one drawer in the center with a drop-front for the keyboard, and 2 file drawers.

The 73-inch size of the desk gives you enormous space to work with. You can put multiple monitors on it, and still have space for your work accessories that find their place on the desk. But, that means that you must have a larger home office because the desk of this size won’t just fit everywhere.

Design

The design department is where this desk truly shines. It is just a fabulous desk that will make it very hard for you to get your eyes off it, especially if you are a fan of this kind of design. The Hooker Furniture European Renaissance II is, as its name says, designed to resemble the period of Renaissance in Europe in the 14th century, and it does that just brilliantly.

As we all know, the main characteristic of the Renaissance period is the people’s renewed interest in the classical style, and you can see that in this desk with the motifs around the corners of the desk and in the front. We especially liked the dark finish that the European Renaissance II has. The great idea is to pair it with an executive chair, like this one, the Serta Big & Tall Executive Chair.

Conclusion

The European Renaissance II from Hooker Furniture is a gorgeous executive desk, that is well made and has a big space for your work stuff. It is, however, on the pricier side. That makes it unavailable for most people, but if you can afford it, and have a room that is stylistically similar to this desk, then go ahead, you will not be disappointed. If you don’t have a room that is similar to this desk, design-wise, then you will not see the full potential of this desk, as it need a similar environment to fully shine.
