Best Manufacturer of Wood Desks

Many people want to find a stylish wood desk that is of a very high quality but won't break the bank.  Maybe you're one of those folks who have ordered a desk that did not fit this description and you know the disappointment that can come with buying a desk, waiting for it to be shipped to you, and having it arrive--only to find out that it is of incredibly low quality.  Thinking you are buying a nice desk that will last you for 10 years and then finding out it will need to be replaced within a year or two is one of the most frustrating experiences one can face in buying a desk.

We're here to help!  We have years of experience in this particular industry, and we know which manufacturers are good to deal with, which offer great customer service, and, most importantly, who produces a high quality product that will last for years to come.  Without further ado, here is our list of the top 3 manufacturers of wood desks (remember, there are higher end manufacturers, but this list includes only those we deem "affordable"):

1. Bestar - Bestar gets our top spot for several reasons.  First, they are dependable: they offer consistent  and responsive customer service, they keep their desks in stock, and they manufacture their own products.  The fact that they manufacture it themselves means they can control the quality very well and that they can keep things in stock--no waiting for items to ship over from Asia.  This is a HUGE positive.  Second, when you order a Bestar desk you know what you are going to get.  It is a high quality piece of furniture that is well made and will last.  To prove it, Bestar offers a 10 year warranty on every desk they make, and they do the "extras", like putting quality edging on every desk and coating every surface with melamine to protect against burning and scratching.  Third, they are desk specialists.  Many manufacturers cast a wide net and manufacture many products, but that sometimes makes them specialists in none of those products.  Bestar only makes office furniture, so they know what they are doing.  As the Managing Partner of this company, I bought a Bestar desk a couple years ago for my primary desk, and I have been very pleased with the quality.

2. Ergo Office - Ergo Office gets second place because they offer a wide variety of products in a wide array of price ranges, and they specialize in unique, modern, attractive units.  They also offer great quality, and of the many Ergo Office desks we have sold, we have never had any complaint about the quality.  They offer very nice designs and very nice quality.  They are a bit less affordable than Bestar, and they do not manufacture their desks in the states so at times there are waits on their units while they are shipped from overseas.  But if you want a high quality piece and are willing to wait a bit if yours is not available, Ergo Office desks are a great way to go.

3. Ameriwood - Ameriwood desks might not be as high in the quality department as the others above them in this list, but they are certainly tops in affordability.  They do an excellent job of keeping costs down and offer a very nice product our customers have been very pleased with for a very affordable price. If you need a nice wood desk that will go easy on your bank account, Ameriwood is a great option.  They also offer good customer service and when things occasionally get damaged they are helpful in taking care of those issues.

We could give you a list of companies to avoid, but that would be a bad idea here!  :)  If you have questions, you can always contact us and ask.  We can be reached at 888-335-4609 or at  We exist to serve people, and though this business provides my living personally, I wouldn't do it if I didn't feel like I could help people out and serve them in some way that made an impact.  So it's a joy to take your e-mails or calls and try to help out.
