Thanks, the clients are very pleased with it.
The desk is about 30" deep the niche itself is about 5'6" in total depth The width is about 6', and on the right side there is an additional side nice for the printer that is about 30" x 30", this tucks around behind the white cabinet door you see on the right. And there is knee space below the desk.

A similar color is Pure White 7005 by Sherwin Williams. For the desk top, try a stain like Burnished Walnut 3119, also by SW.

May I know how wide the gap is separating the two shelves on the table where the frames are placed at? - Is it able to fit in a television? If it is, how wide has the television have to be?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use symmetry to enlarge small spaces. Don't stop the symmetry at the exterior or in larger rooms. Because a symmetrical layout is static and fixed, it can make even the smallest of spaces feel bigger. Arranging the cabinetry and shelving in a symmetrical manner can give a small desk area presence and gravitas.More Architect's Toolbox:Scale and ProportionBeautifully Layered Spaces
