The desk is nice and looks just as good and classic as the picture. It is nice to have a piece that can be discrete as a bookshelf when not in use. The issues I had with the piece was that it had one part broken when it arrived, but luckily was where a lip screwed into the top, so we were able to glue it on and did not affect functionality. the second was that it had a few small scratches upon arrival and when we were assembling, a small amount of the color came of on the edges; but all were small enough to correct with a stain pen, so we decided not to go through the hassle of returning. The last is that when swinging out the bottom to change into the "L" shaped desk, you have to hold the top or the whole piece moves. Again, it is a very nice piece and fits nicely in my formal living room as a "bookshelf" when I am not using it. I have it on a wall that is a side view when looking in the room. that is nice because the edge of the middle shelf hides my keyboard, mouse, and headset when not working.

I love my desk/ bookshelf. Great modern look and the solid wood feels and looks high quality .

I bought this desk in black for my small home office. I was looking for something that was light and airy but also solid since it's such a small room. This fit the bill in terms of size, style and function. I love how it folds in on itself - perfect since my office is tiny and when we have guests over, the futon will be pulled out and the desk can fold against the wall. Assembly was fairly easy - until the last step to assemble the swivel part. A couple of the screws were just a hair too long and poked through the top of the desk. I was able to hammer down the point and touch up with some furniture paint, but just something to be aware of - don't drill too deep! Also, the swivel took a few attempts before I was able to get the pieces to feel securely tightened. Once in place, I am happy with the final product.

It's not that I am displeased with it. I just expected it to be more for the money. I would recommend it for an accent piece but not anything that would be used daily.

Our home is small and I purchased 2 of these to use as a fold away office space. They are sofa tables when not using them as desks.

I really like the functionality of this desk. I have a small condo and the desk works perfect, it has a modern edge to it but functional. There was only one screw that made it difficult to put together, it was the main one too, but we got together!

I'm disappointed in this desk--I expected better quality for the price. The holes for the screws that hold the legs onto the tabletop were too large, which resulted in very wobbly legs (fortunately, we were able to tighten them up by using our own mollys). Also, the nails on the glides that go on the bottom of the unit are too long, which caused at least one of them to poke through the laminate. Additionally, we were missing two of the screws required for complete assembly. Finally, as one other review noted, the bookcase portion is MDF (or laminate over particle board), not genuine wood as the description might lead you to believe. Overall, I'd say the desk is a great concept, but the execution is sorely lacking. I would not buy this desk again, and I would not recommend it to a friend.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture and very easy to put together.

This does just what I wanted. I use it as a sewing table, b/c the storage underneath is perfect. I LOVE it and my boyfriend is totally jealous of it. He got a free table and offered it to me. I told him I was waiting to get this thing, showed him, and he was like, "yeah, it's way better." and it was when I got it too. I was able to put it together myself, although a couple parts were tricky. I didn't find the instructions difficult. It looks great, my only complaint is sometimes when I slide out the shelf, the stand piece slides a little too - and scrapes the hardwood. I'm getting a sanding block and some holders this weekend so this doesn't happen any more. Other than that, I love it. Please note, because it has to have a little leeway when you pivot the shelf, you can't put it flush in a corner. It has to have a little extra room.

We needed a small writing desk for a guest bedroom. We were able to find just the right size here. It fits the space perfectly and looks great. We were very pleased with the quality of the desk. It feels very solid. And it was easy to assemble.

This desk didn't come with any assembly instructions in the box and it isn't shown on the manufacturers site at all. Normally I'd be able to figure it out, but none of the holes are appropriate sizes for the screws and half the holes don't go all the way through. Style wise and finish I like it, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.

I always read the reviews before I buy something. And there's always that one person that has the most ridiculous horror story with assembling pieces and constantly getting wrong parts, over and over and over again, until it eventually just ends up a disassembled mess that they burn along with their dreams of ever having a workstation. I always laughed at these people. Disdainfully. You either have exceptionally bad luck or you're a moron that can't put a desk together. Karma. I got my desk. Step one: piece of cake. Next. Step two. I have had so much contact with Overstock, I have received so many pieces, each of them defective in it's own unique way. I finally was issued a partial refund if I just drilled my own holes, which I happily accepted. Step three. Another defective piece. "Oh, Overstock sent me plenty of replacement parts that I didn't even request," I cackled. Nope. All defective. I eventually disassembled Step Two with a heavy heart, packed up the pieces, and called to schedule a UPS pick up. Overstock has won. I have learned humility. Don't be a statistic. PS: and don't buy furniture at Overstock.

Love this desk with one exception. The upper area for printer is absolutely useless for most printers. It is too small to accommodate the AVERAGE PRINTER. It would only be good for the smallest minute printers. Would have rated excellent except for I can't use it as intended to house my printer..

Where to begin? The desk came right on time. When we opened it, we saw the directions were cryptic. This isn't our first rodeo with this type of furniture, so we were sure we'd be able to figure it out. Not only are the directions cryptic, but the pieces aren't labeled, which adds a whole other level of drama to this desk. They didn't include all the screws needed, so we had to take a trip to ******. The last set of directions is so crazy we nearly threw out the desk! It truly takes 3-4 people for the last step. Insane. I would NEVER buy this desk again. Ever ever ever.

Beautiful color. true to computer screen. holds my Mac laptop, with plenty of room. looks like a well cared for antique. Love it in my sitting area. would recommend, another great buy from Overstock. Keep the coupons coming!

Assembly took some time but was easy enough to figure out how to do it myself. Appearance is pretty good in comparison to price. The only thing I wish it had was more desktop space. But, other than that, I would highly recommend this product if you are looking for something to save space.

This is a good quality writing desk for a great price. It is not huge, but it fits perfectly where I have it. The is also ample storage space inside it. It also worked quiet well with my full-sized laptop sitting on it. I am thinking of buying another for my son's room.

Instructions were difficult to decipher, as the diagrams were poor copies and odd angles. Took nearly 2 hours to finish putting it together, but it looks great, and is perfect for an apartment spare room/home office because it swings back on itself like a decorative shelf. Love the dimensions and the color.

This desk is sturdy, and not overly big. Fit great with our guest bedroom furniture with trendy shelving for displaying decorative items if you are into that. Easy to put together.

Love these desks...they double as beside tables and are so pretty. They are made of solid wood....no flakeboard or colored cardboard!!
