Sauder is one of the leading producers of ready-to-assemble furniture and one of the top five furniture manufactures in the US. Sauder is a very popular brand, that makes a variety of furniture, including executive desks.
We have tested one great-looking and affordable executive desk, the Sauder Edge Watter Collection Executive Desk, which proves that even if you are on a smaller budget, you can still get a good executive desk, with both quality and good aesthetics. Since it is a fairly priced desk, don’t expect solid wood construction.
Let’s get into the review of this Sauder Executive Desk.
Features and Construction
It consists mainly of MDF and Particle Board so you can expect this to be a sturdy and stable desk. As we said before, don’t expect a solid wood construction for this price. This home office executive desk from Sauder is 65 1/8″ x 29 1/2″, which is an optimal size for an executive desk for all your must-have desk essentials ranging from your laptop and cup of coffee to your collection of notepads. It can also be used as a dual monitor desk.
It features a big drawer/shelf with a flip-down panel for your keyboard and mouse. Two upper file drawers with metal runners and safety stops are smaller to store office supplies like pens, stamps, staples…
The two lower drawers are larger and have letter-size hanging file frames so you can accommodate your files and documents so that you can keep your stuff well organized at every moment.
Desk-top has a grommet hole for electrical cord access, which allows for setting up your cables neatly, so you can get a cleaner workspace.
Sauder Edge Water Collection is an elegant executive desk with a minimalistic and simple design with an old and rustic feel. The amazing thing is that it comes in two colorways, so it will be easier for you to pick the one that will fit your surroundings.
This executive desk from Saunder is available in Chalked Chestnut and Estate Black finish, which is a little smaller desk than this one. The Estate Black finish will have you feeling more masculine and the Chalket Chestnut will cool your temper. We would go with the Chalked Chestnut one, as we think it will fit better in most home offices than the Estate Black, but that is just our opinion.
The assembly of this desk should take you a few hours to complete, but if you have someone that could give you a hand, that process will be quicker. The manufacturer will give you a detailed instruction manual that is very easy to understand so that shouldn’t be a problem; just take your time and be patient.
It is very spacious, has a couple of nice features and the looks of it are great. And another thing we should mention is the durability of this desk. Even for such an affordable executive desk, the level of durability is quite good and it should last you many, many years to come. We highly recommend this one!
