I believe it's this product at Resource Furniture: It indicates a desk surface of 42 1/2" x 40 3/4" "housed in a cabinet that is just 13 3/4 inches deep."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

On the same wall as the moving TV is a storage unit with doors that hides a drop-down desk. As with the closet next to the bed, a light is built into the piece, above a shelf where notes can be hung with magnets.
