INSPIRATION: This is the baby brother to the Hull desk. The Mercer desk has functional details at every corner, including two drawers on the main side with an adjacent open storage space that has a power outlet for small electronics. On the backside of the desk is a very wide drawer great for magazines and to the right of that is a flip down panel that covers a large compartment. Within that space are six power outlets and plenty of extra room for bundled up electrical cables. There is also a discreet metal channel that is mounted to one of the legs that allows power to run from the floor and terminate within this space.
