This impressive and beautiful desk and cabinet unit features a minimal, modern design. It was made by Hugh Acton of Birmingham, Mich. Hugh Acton is a modern renaissance man, nationally recognized as a furniture designer, artist, inventor, athlete and philosopher. His pieces are treasured by collectors and artists alike. There are two work surfaces, a bulletin board, multiple drawers, and lots of cabinet space. There are also areas to display awards, curios, pictures, etc. 

The footprint of the unit looks like a "T" with the base of the "T" being the main desk area. The main desk area measures 38" W x 90" L x 29 3/4" T and about 1 1/2" thick. On the left side are a supply drawer and a file drawer. The supply drawer is 13 1/2" W x 23" D x 3" T inside and the file drawer measures 13" W x 23" D x 10 3/4" T inside. There is also a 1/2" deep pencil tray centered under the main desk area, it has 5 sections: the large section is 19 1/2" L x 8 3/8" W, there are two sections measuring 9" x 2 3/4", and two sections measuring 10 1/4" x 2 3/4" - there is some overhead room beyond the 1/2" depth. Above and below the main desk area where it meets the cross of the "T" are four shelves measuring 16" W x 38" L. The heights of the shelves, working up from the bottom, are 20", 15 1/4", 11 3/4", and 15 3/4". 

To the right of the main desk area is a white topped work area that measures 59 3/4" L x 28" W x 28 1/2" T - it has four drawers measuring . Just above the work area is a bulletin board that measures 60" L x 26 1/4" T. The cabinet above is divided into two areas measuring 29" L x 14 3/4" D x 15 3/8" T - there are shelves and movable supports on both sides. 

Opposite the white work area, on the other side of the "T", is an area for cabinet storage and displaying knick-knacks. The bottom cabinet measures 21" L x 15" D x 22 7/8" on both sides inside. The top of the this cabinet is an open area for displaying your favorite items, it measures 44" L x 16" D x 25" T. Above that area is another cabinet, measuring 21" L x 15" D x 15 3/8" T on both sides inside. 

Overall, the footprint is 145 3/4" L (the top of the "T") and 90" W (the base of the "T"). 

There is some slight bowing of the main desk and some chipped wood and scratches as should be expected for a piece over 50 years old. Again, this is a vintage item that is worn but in good condition for its age as pictured.
