We received this desk a couple of days ago and just got it together. While the finished product is very attractive and sturdy, putting it together was horrible. Firstly, you need a drill/driver for this to get it done in any time at all. Additionally, EVERY piece has to be assembled and you may have to do some things multiple times in order to get things to fit together. My advice, keep most things loose in order to get all the screws in the product, then tighten them down.
Overall, the product is really good looking and worth the money. Its large, and sturdy.
This desk looks fantastic and is large and sturdy once all the pieces are in place. However, the process assembling to that form can be quite challenging if you are not willing to take matters into your own hands. The support bars of the metal shell are not cut evenly, which results in the bottom beam sitting crooked. Beyond a minor eye sore, this knocks many of the pre-drilled holes out of alignment, especially in the bottom draw holder. I needed to drill some holes on my own and gave up on others that were not possible.
Bottom line, if you aren't comfortable brute forcing elements into place and drilling some of your own holes, stay away from this beautiful, yet poorly manufactured product.
Is the metal on the desk a matte silver or a shinny chrome? The other pieces in the collection look like shinny chrome but this looks more like a matte silver in the picture.abbygirl212 on May 28, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is the wood actually reclaimed or simulated to look reclaimed? If simulated to look reclaimed, is it real wood or ventured? If real wood, what type of wood?tricerped123 on Mar 30, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello tricerped123, thank you for your inquiry! The desk is not made out of wood. The top is made out of hollow core (MDF) with a paper foil top and pvc edge. It has the "look" of reclaimed-wood, but it's not wood. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!

I will need to attach a clamp to the top of the desk for my monitor arm. I need approximately 3 to 4" of unobstructed desktop for the monitor arm clamp. How close to the edge is the metal brackets on the underside of the desktop?hawkings on Feb 10, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
