The desk is really well made and pretty easy to put together. Be aware that the directions are English but this wasn't the writers first language! At one point the directions were wrong (the legs). They had the directions switched from one side to the other. You would figure it out if you follow the diagram carefully. Still, it was an easy fix and again the product looks great. Can't beat the price! Fast delivery too.
I needed a corner desk in my empty bedroom to put our computer on. My son told me bamboo is very strong building material so I chose this, and I am thrilled with my choice. The shelves are perfect for smaller baskets with supplies. The middle drawer is perfect for a supply of paper.
It is just a really cool, sturdy desk! I have had GREAT success with MANY purchases from Overstock.com this summer as I helped my three sons move into their own homes and worked on my own empty nest.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It looks just like the picture, and goes great with my medium oak furniture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a sturdy, attractive piece of furniture. Bamboo is very strong.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was very accurate.
This table is great. It has the characteristic bamboo markigs, so you can be sure it's sustainable & bamboo. It has a very wide drawer and fits wonderfully in the corner. Also has shelves below, but you don't have to attach those if you want more room underneath. I did attach them. I actually used this in my kitchen to place a microwave on and put the 2 recycle baskets underneath. Put it together by myself. Goes great w/the bamboo utensils and napkin holder I already had. : ) Love it, love the earth friendliness!!!!!!!

I love my desk! It is just the right size for the corner of my at home office and allows me to free up space in the room. There was some varience in the wood coloring, noticing 3 different shades of color, but once put together not as noticable. All and all it was a great purchase!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little different
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality

The top of the desk is three layers of bamboo and came with a slight bow or warp. I figured like most layered wood, "plywood" products, this slight warp would flatten out when I assembled the desk. However, when I screwed the top down to the base, the top started cracking. It made loud pops like popcorn. This is the last step in assembling the desk so everything else was already screwed and glued together. Anyway, when I turned the desk over. there were several cracks in the top where the strips of bamboo had separated. One crack is wide enough to stick a piece of paper into. The rest of the structure is pretty good, so another finish than bamboo might be just fine.
Desk fits my computer & printer perfectly. Color is true to the picture and matches my furniture. Drawer is a plus to hold paper & pens. Took a while for me to assemble but it is solid and sturdy enough for my use. Only thing I didn't like was it went on sale a couple days after I ordered it.
We needed a new desk after we downsized homes and discovered that our existing desk wouldn't fit in our new space. This corner bamboo desk really fits our needs - not just b/c of its smaller size but it is sturdy, easy-to-assemble and tucks away quite nicely in a corner of our den. The surface is large enough to accommodate our large computer monitor and keyboard and the shelves come in handy for storing books and baskets of office supplies. The only disappointment was that Overstock cut the price about $40 on this item just two days after we received it.
I would like to also have a regular table desk to match this corner piece. Do you have any available?1kota on Nov 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is this desk solid bamboo? Or veneers over particle board? I ask because I've seen the same desk on another website and a reviewer there complains that it's really particle board w/ bamboo veneers. Particle board emits a chemical smell that I can't have in the house because of a family member with severe allergies, so I thought I would ask.ab2013 on May 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I believe it is solid bamboo, and there was never a chemical smell. I'm sitting at it right now, and it looks like solid bamboo to me. I've been very happy with this desk...it's the only desk in the house, and I sit at it every day while working on my computer.draesmith on May 14, 2013
Hi ab2013, sorry for the delayed response. Overall the desk is made of bamboo. However the inside drawer panel and the back of the desk are made of engineered wood. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
