  • A great desk with poor paackaging

    This is an awesome design and easy to assemble, however the packaging leaves much to be desired. My desk came out of the box looking used, with scuffs on many edges of the desk top as well as a cracked center beam. The desk is functional, however I was very disappointed at the existing wear and tear this item had out of the box.

  • Perfect decorative but functional desk

    Love the style and idea of this desk. Its perfect for office use, personal décor and very appealing to the eye. The desk is perfect height in order to be comfortable while sitting and working on your computer or home work. It is very sturdy and will hold up to wear and tear for the price. Only complaint is that it took forever to put together due to holes not being aligned properly or holes being too big which caused parts to not work together well. It did come with a minor scratch on the desk drawer as well but only noticeable to me since I put it together. I would definitely recommend this product for the price. Its a good focal piece for any room you put it in.

  • Good for the value

    I bought two of these. For the first one, the top got scratched when I was putting it together. I assumed I had just been careless and was extra careful when putting the second one together. It got scratched anyway! However, my kids have been using them pretty heavily ever since and it's been holding up really good. A few scratches here and there but they are still up! I used wood glue when putting them together though!

  • Just what I was looking for

    I'm a 58 year old woman, and I put it together myself, HOWEVER, the drawer was broken and that was the last thing you put together and take the plastic off of. After working on the desk for 2 hours, I was not going to take apart and send back. I have called and was told they would try to get me another one (drawer). I would recommend this desk to everyone, really sturdy.

  • Perfect Fit

    This desk is actually going to be used as a bedroom entertainment center. Its size, height and cubby hole features make it a wonderful addition to the bedroom without the bulky look of a "traditional" entertainment center.
