Michael Carson

How big are the desks? Can they hold two monitors?
Andrew Bratton

@Michael, they can… But it’s a tight fit. Often people will put their dresser next to their desk (they are the same height) to “extend” they’re desk space and make it work better.
Andrew Bratton

Also very dependent on your monitor size, two smaller monitors would fit just fine
Alexandra Marshall
