      Comments about Steelcase Currency Home Habitat Desk:

      The desk is very nice looking and sturdy! I even stood on it while putting up the blinds in my office. I am 240 lbs and it didn't budge, shake, or wobble at all. I just miss having a pen drawer and keyboard tray but I can remedy that with add ons later.

      Comments about Steelcase Currency Home Habitat Desk:

      Our company decided to go with a larger work surface than the Bivi for a small office build-out. While the Currency offers plenty of work space for engineers in a gorgeous package, it is severely lacking in practicality. For instance, it does not come with any pre-built cable management solutions: No holes, no hangers, nada. If you work only with a wireless device, then no muss. But, if you're a normal person, then you have wires and cords draping all over the clean lines of this desk and spilling onto the floor.

      The obvious solution is to offer the desk with pre-drilled holes, covers, and cable management solutions. Don't leave it to the customer to ask for it (because apparently the factory can do it for you--we weren't asked/didn't know), or leave it to the customer to do it themselves.

          After an extensive search I was lucky to stumble upon this desk. Compared to EVERYTHING else out there in a similar price range, this desk is unbeatable. Lovely build quality, and richness really add to my office. Look no further.

              Hello Paul,

              Yes, the Habitat desk can be break down into pieces, actually it ships disassembled, so the installers will install it on the place you desire.

              Same thing for the 4 and 5 shelf bookcase.
