This desk is exactly what we needed to add our "office" space into a family room without takin up much space, and making the room feel office-like. It fits perfectly (measurements were right on); the color matches our furniture. Assembly was easy - my husband did it in less than an hour, taking his time, and he is a self-proclaimed NON expert at directions. The desk is solid and feels strong, not a wobble. It holds our IMAC with plenty of space for papers, and enough shelfs with baskets to access papers/things we need immediately. It sits next to a bookshelf were we keep other 'office" needs" and file boxes. If we needed a printer on the desk, it would fit, but with a wireless one, we are able to put that on a separate shelf and have plenty of room on the desk. Price was more than reasonable. We couldn't be more pleased.

We needed a small desk for my husband to work from home sometimes. We wanted to make an office space in the basement family room. This desk is perfect. It could not be easier to assemble, just the four legs. The desk arrived very quickly.

When I received this item it was scratched up terribly. My husband had to drill holes to make screws work, and he had to cut down drawer bottoms to fit slots that were not even. Took over 6 hours of fixing to get it together. I would not recommend this to any of my friends or family

Arrived in perfect condition, was easy to assemble, and looks very nice. We're using it in our open-concept, living-dining-kitchen area to provide space for our laptop so we can stay connected while staying close. The best thing is that while looking like a nice (living room worthy) piece of furniture, it's also a very generous size so it could be used for lots of different functions or shared by different family members.

My 19 year old uses the stand daily from an armchair in our family room. It's stable, functional and has proven durable. He has his 15" laptop on it with a mouse beside it. We took one of the retaining bars off the mouse tray for somfort (wasn't needed to retain the mouse) and he's been very happy with it.

I really wanted a value priced desk but learned after two faulty attempts with this particular product to avoid it completely. Overstock represented a level of professionalism that protected me as a customer and for that I am extremely grateful and recommend their services to family and friends with great enthusiasm. The main problem with this desk is that the construction of its individual parts are shoddy, leading to the common problem of stripped connector components that prevent the desk from correct and/or even functional assembly. The desk top is so shoddy that it easily gets nicked and bent during shipping even with a very through packing job. So after two failed attempts of assembly, I learned that this is an actual problem as this desk is unusable. The large Swedish company that manufactures similar styles has twice the quality of this piece for half the price, which really speaks volumes about the lack of integrity in this piece of furniture. My advice is to either spend the money on something made with more solid materials or look offline where you can probably find the value price for a more well constructed desk of the same aesthetic simplicity as this offer. I imagine shipping is tacked onto the price in order to create some type of profit margin as it truly has a null value given the impracticality (and for me impossibility of assembly) of these poorly made components.

It's a nice desk that fits well in a corner and provides good working space while being an efficient furniture piece. I dont expect this to necessarily last through the ages and become a family heirloom, but it'll definitely get the job done for the next few years.

I am a work-at-home mom. Since starting my "at-home" job about a year ago, I had been working with my laptop and office supplies on our dining room table because our other large desk is in a spare bedroom, away from the main living area of the house. I need to be near my four year old while I'm working during the day, so using that desk and room wasn't an option. Our house is about average size - 1500 square feet - and the layout makes it difficult to put the large desk anywhere else. Constantly having to move my stuff from one room to the other when we needed to use the dining room table was really becoming a hassle, not to mention how cluttered it looked with all my office supply stuff sitting everywhere. I cleared out a corner in our family room and this desk just works perfectly from all aspects! The color is a nice, rich black that fits perfectly with our country/primitive decor but could easily fit in with other styles as well. The quality is great - from what I can see it is nearly all solid wood. The size is perfect - I worried about having enough room for my laptop, notebooks, and other things that I need to work with all at the same time, but there is plenty of space. Having the drawer to stash all my stuff is awesome too! The drawer is larger than I was expecting and holds plenty of supplies. The desk and the chair are both very sturdy. I worried about this because of the price point, but I was pleasantly surprised! It arrived four days after I ordered it and It took my husband a little over an hour to assemble the desk and I believe the chair went together pretty quickly as well. All in all, one of the best furniture purchases I've made in awhile!

We needed a desk for our family room computer that my husband could be more comfortable at. This works great, and the phone books fit in the drawers. Nice lines and the finish seems sturdy so far. We could have ordered it elsewhere on line, but Overstock always ships things so fast that we got it here. And, it arrived in three days!

We bought this for our game room, mostly for our family computer to use for recreational or homework. It was easy to put together and serves it's purpose well. It is a great deal for the price. There is plenty of room for our Mac/mouse and a writing tablet too. You will enjoy this desk.

Pretty simple to put together; so says my husband. After almost a year the drawer fastners tend to loosen up frequently requiring them to be adjusted every couple of weeks. The finish on the front edge has been beaten off from a lot of use. Overall the desk has been a great additional to the family/office room. It has a very large work surface.

Its a small,simple desk meant for small spaces,and the black color makes it striking . Assembling it was a whole other story! Lame instructions which had NO written instruct,just pictures, and over 108 pcs of hardware,dowels,etc!!! Ridiculous....it took me hours...I felt like I was assembling the Space Shuttle! It put me in foul mood and affected the family! Once completed,(I also glued every dowel but the glue they provided ran out early so I went to the store for more)it looks fine and its sturdy.Don't try to short cut without using wood glue or it won't be as sturdy. The drawer doesn't pull out all the way which is weird..a little over halfway. The biggest issue I had was the drawer glides..as they need to be separated and proved difficult to manuver the clip to do so,and it wasnt clear how to do so. Once you master the glides,its just an investment of time. I would ONLY recommend it to those mechanically inclined and those with alot of patience....if so,you will do just fine!!

I am perfectly happy with the Highland 2-drawer white writing desk I purchased. I thought I would have a problem putting it together as I'm always a little apprehensive buying something that needs to be assembled. Lo and behold, to my surprise, I put it together all by myself. My friends and family could not believe I did it and, in about a half hour. The drawers came with the knobs already on them and all I had to do is screw in the legs. I am a happy camper!

I initially saw something similar at ****** but I didn't want to pay that much plus the color was not what I wanted. After searching the internet for a ladder wall desk, I saw this model on several other sites and Overstock had the best value. Plus, there was a detail picture of the dimensions and that made the decision to purchase much easier. The only addition I made was purchase a piece of wood at ****** that was exactly the same material and put on to to have seamless finish for my storage boxes. It fits perfectly in my family room and takes up miminal space width wise lengthwise it fills up what would have been a bare space. Another feature I liked were the two doors on each end. It was easy to put up and I am a 43 yr old female who put it up all by myself in the evening. It's fantastic!!!!!

I've had this desk for over a year and I still love it. I didn't have any trouble putting it together. Everything fit. The trick is definitely NOT screwing everything tight until it's all together. Also bought one of these for a family member. The glass top is nice & thick & the construction is sturdy. Did I mention I love this desk??

This is a great little desk. We needed a corner desk for our awkward shaped family room and this desk is perfect! My husband put it together in about half an hour with no issues. We get compliments on the desk all the time, it looks way more expensive than it was! The matching chair is REALLLY sturdy! I was really surprised how sturdy and solid the chair was. Overall we are really happy we got this black corner desk.

I ordered this desk because I wanted something that served as a nightstand and a laptop desk. It works great. The deep middle drawer is perfect for storing everything in. The desk is at the perfect height to put near a bed too. If you do use this desk, please note that most adjustable chairs will not fit nicely under it...you're better off sticking with a static chair. Assembly was a breeze. All I needed was an hour and a screwdriver. For the value, it was just what I wanted. It doesn't take up much space and serves a double function for me. This would be great for someone that needs a writing/typing surface in a family room or hallway.

It arrived in about a week, and was a very heavy box (about 80 pounds.) However, I just dragged it into our foyer with the help of my 11 yr old son, and opened the box there, and carried the pieces into our family room where it was to reside. I put it together myself within 90 minutes, with the allen wrench that was included, and my own cordless screwdriver. It's very sturdy, well made, and exactly the look I wanted. I found seagrass baskets to fit the shelves at the Container Store. I matched it with an upholstered dining room chair from Target, which is the perfect height. I'm thrilled with the final result, and would make the same decision to buy it again. :)

We purchased this desk as a birthday gift for my son and he loves it! Great looking desk and perfect size for a bedroom / office or family room. Overall great quality. Previous reviews indicated a bit of a challenge in putting the desk together but my husband didn't have any issues.
