This desk is heavy and beautiful. My husband put it together and he said that the plastic pieces are flimsy. He said the bolts break easily with too much torque so be careful. This desk comes in two boxes and many pieces so be prepared to spend a few hours putting it together. I bought the mahogany finished desk and it is very beautiful.

I love this little desk....It is perfect as a corner vanity table. I added the Elton Chrome Wall Mirror (leaning against the walls across the back of the desk) and a mirrored vanity tray. There is even room for a small lighted mirror on one side and a set of acrylic drawers on the other to hold my makeup with plenty of working space left over. The shelves are useful for storing larger items in plastic bins. Overall, it was very easy to put together. I assembled the desk and chair by myself in under an hour, and the finished product is very sturdy. I've had this for over a year, and it still looks great. The drawer occasionally sticks, but a little adjusting has fixed that. I am very happy with this purchase. It is something that I use every day, and I would definitely buy it again.

I bought this desk for my daughter's room. It is very plain and black so it fits in the modern theme she has. The box was heavy, I barely got it into the house myself, but after unpacking was able to take it upstairs pretty easily piece by piece. It went together very easily, insert legs and two bolts for each leg. I did need a second person to help turn it over just to be safe. The desk is very sturdy and I'm happy with it. The drawers are a bit less level of quality. I can see these being damaged or falling apart in the future if the user isn't gentle. My 14 yr old isn't too rough on things so I believe this will last her for as long as she is still living with us. The finish makes me a little nervous, it has a slight gloss and will show scratches very easily. A previous reviewer mentioned the finish wore off easily. I'm going to purchase a piece of glass to sit atop the desk to save it from scratches caused by sliding books, lamps and such across the top. She can also put pictures and things under the glass top to personalize it. The pieces all have a common, single finish.. so no plastic piece to peel off the edge. For the cost of this desk I am very very happy. I needed something inexpensive, plain, black... but it needs to last for several years. I think this will fit the bill nicely. Cheap pressboard desks with the sticker/finish don't last and they look bad really quick... and this desk didn't cost that much more. I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you!!

The desk would be great for a college dorm. It is a plastic coating on a fiber board. It takes a bit of time to assemble and you need to pay very close attention to the pics in the directions. It is a compact unit and great for a small space. For the money, it's not ba bad purchase and it should last a couple of years.

Only good thing about this desk are the style and wood material. I would not have purchased if I knew what a nightmare it was to put together. I've assembled A LOT of furniture. Most of my furniture has required assembly. This by far has been the most difficult item I've ever had to assemble. Assembly has take 6 hours and still not complete bc now I have to reach out to Overstock to request more camlocks.The camlocks are made of some type of plastic hybrid material and I had 10 break during assembly. They dont provide extra. So with broken camlocks, there is zero chance of the piece not being wobbly.

I ordered this desk and hutch (pr so I thought--hutch is sold desperately) in white and they shipped me the desk only in brown. It was a horrible plastic laminate that was torn on the sides. I sent it back and was refunded.

urchased this desk because they stated it is made of wood. Well, upon arrival, It already had scratches on the black surface that showed what appeared to be a white or light grey plastic for a base. As we put the piece together, it seemed every time a surface was touched, it scratched off the black and showed the white color. I wanted to return the piece immediately but the return shipping prevented me from doing so. As it is, upon assemly-NEW OUT OF THE BOX- I had to use a cloth to cover the very, very low-quality and ugly desk. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

Great desk, lots of space since its L-shaped. Looks nice and sleek and it's easy to put together. (However, I didn't put together the keyboard slider since I have a laptop so I wouldn't know about the ease of putting that together.) The only thing I didn't like about putting it together was the size of the suction cups used to hold the glass to the frame. They seem too small and I had some trouble getting them to hold properly, and a couple still don't stick well. Don't really think it was worth quite that much since it doesn't have any drawers or storage space, but a rolling file or plastic storage is all you need. Doesn't hide all the wires from everything I have set-up (laptop, scanner/printer, speakers) though. Overall, I love it and would recommend it.

I bought this desk and May and was very impressed by it - it was easy to put together and looked really good - it even feels very sturdy. Unfortunately, the glide which holds the drawer up just broke - it is a plastic piece and I can't replace it through Overstock - so I'll have to figure out some other solution. In the meantime, I'll have to remove the drawer so that it doesn't break even more.

Bought this desk and the matching coffee table for our beach house sun room and they are perfect! They are transitional in design so go with our somewhat eclectic decor and they are so easy to keep clean - from sand and spills. The "wood" look is great as long as you don't expect it to look like high grade genuine wood - but the material is great for us (doesn't look like ticky tacky plastic). Most people think we paid much more than we did - as similar products are always for sale in shelter magazines. Would buy these again!

I have a small home office that needed a small desk to save some space. For the price, this desk is great. It's pretty heavy when shipped, and it looked like the shipping truck did a few roll-overs considering how banged up the box was- but the desk itself was undamaged. I was surprised how sturdy and solid this desk was, as I was expecting cheap wood and plastic. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

I think this is a great space-saving craft table. It's counter-height, so one could either stand at the table while working, or sit on a counter height stool. It has many nooks and crannies on all sides that make it easy to stash craft projects and almost forces you to be organized. My daughter and I both have counter height stools on either side (that we can tuck up underneath the table when we're done) and love to sit across from each other making art or working on projects. It's mdf with a plastic feeling coating, and we haven't seen any signs of wear yet. Very happy with this purchase!

Saw that it rated well and liked the styling so I went ahead and ordered. However, I read after I ordered about the chipping problem. I tried to cancel but I was too late. I would have to send it back. I even bought a plastic mat for it at office store right from the beginning but yup...the top chips very easy and white specs where it chips are showing up. I am not even sure what caused the chipping. I think I set down my keys. It is a desktop for got sakes and it shouldn't chip from basic regular use. I would not recommend this product.

I had been looking for something to use as a makeup vanity in my bedroom. Most actual vanities were too decorative, expensive or cheap MDF. Found this desk on Overstock in the color I wanted. Perfect with the right height to go with my stool, enough upper surface to hold a lamp, lighted mirror and assorted cosmetic items. The middle drawer is spacious and allows me to keep extra items out of sight. I will probably use as a makeup vanity for a while but I know it will also work perfectly in the future as a regular desk. Love that it is wood and not 200lbs of MDF. I did find that the drawer was a little still to open and close after assembly with just the plastic and wood drawer glide system. Didn't have any beeswax but used a plain bar of bath soap and lubed the wood grooves of the rail that the drawer glide rides in. Worked even better than I expected and have not had to do another thing yet. Very good buy for an attractive little desk.

This is a well made desk and fairly easy to put together. I assembled it by myself in about 45 minutes. It was a little too big for the chosen area but due to its minimalist style I was able to pull it off. I would have given 5 stars except for the following. As with another review, my desk also had a chip on one corner, which I don't understand because this desk came well packed. The surface can get scratched easily and will show so I have to be extra careful. The plastic pad under the desk helps gliding the desk but will scratch wood floors. Overall, Iím very happy.

I was EXTREMELY disappointed with this purchase. I would not recomment it at all. All of the packaging clearly indicatest that this is a hollow core desk...however I did not see this on the description. I was expecting laminate. I realized when purchasing it that it would not be solid hardwoods, but for the price I paid....over $$$ for this desk I was expecting a very high quality laminate. The desk was also very complicated to put together....There are many many pieces. Handles on all drawers are plastic!! Also very cheap looking. Unfotunately for me I began assembling the product or I likely would have sent this ALL pack. I've gotten better quality & MUCH Cheaper furniture from ****** and/or ******!!!! The color is true to what is pictured and the desk looks exactly like shown....but the cardboard drawer bottoms, cardboard backing on the bookshelves means I've spent a substantial amount of money on something that will not hold up over the years!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

I really like this desk, I work from home and needed a desk that could hold my laptop with docking station, monitor small printer and various office supplies, while still looking good in my home. This desk does the trick. It is sturdy, stylish and has a lot of storage. For the price I could not have found anything better (trust me I looked for months!). The back of the desk and the hutch IS FINISHED, so you are not limited to a corner. The drawer handles are plastic, but you cannot tell from looking at it. Just wanted to mention the desk and hutch DO NOT have media holes for cables, so I had holes drilled on the back of the desk (it's a plywood type of board) and on my desktop for my computer monitor, then installed a cable plate to cover the hole and make hole look 'prettier'. Also, the corner piece does not have support other than being attached to the desk by the sides. I would buy this product again as I feel this was a bargain for the price. Some people expect hardwood or claim that this is not quality, but I disagree. I am one who does like 'higher-end' things and pays close attention to how things look and I can vouch for this desk that it looks way better than I expected it to for the price paid.

Love the shape and design of this desk, but very disappointed with the quality. Once I got it built ( the instructions were horrible to follow) it looked cheap.The draw pulls are a cheap plastic gray. I went out to Target to buy cabinet pulls and switched it out! I would recommend looking for a better quality desk if your paying this price point.

yes you have to assemble it. if you haven't flatpacked before this might take some time but it is doable.Shipping-took a week but i ordered it over a holiday weekend. Took me and the ups guy to get it inside. Had a few minor nicks on corners but nothing noticible. Material- it's a solid and heavy particle board. Each pannel is hollow, but feels sturdy. The exterior has a nice dark finish that doesn't seem like it will chip or crack with normal use. It's not wood, but it is good for what it is. also the little silver feet are a dense plastic. Disappointing at first but on carpet they sink in and are hardly visible, the plastic also makes them hard floor friendly i think. Construction-The adjustable shelves are nice and the bottom of the "L" can either be on the left or right. The back of the cabinet is finished as well so it doesn't need to be put against a wall. Drawers are deep but this width is a little bit short. I couldn't quite fit a file in the bottom drawer propperly. the elements seem wobbly at first but when it all comes together is very solid and could support the weight of a person. good desk, happy with purchase

clumsy, awkward to move, heavier than I expected, came with one of the black plastic support bars broken, only tilts slightly and does not hold position.
