First time I see a Safavieh product of such poor quality. I ordered two desks, one was missing the screw which holds the drawer knob, so I had to go find one that would fit at Orchard Supply. Finish is very "raw", just a very thin coat of white paint with fingerprints all over... I am glad that the purpose of these desks was home staging, or else I think I would have returned them. They just don't look new and seem pretty cheap.

the desk was exactly what I wanted--extremely easy to assemble

The desk came quickly and was very securely packaged. Taking it out of the Styrofoam took longer than assembly! You just have to screw the legs on securely and you are all set. The desk is made of nice solid wood and looks good in my daughter's traditional bedroom.

I love the desk, it came in with minor damage, but that was due to the delivery people, the damage was so minor, that I decided to keep it and use a little wood glue. I did not want to have to wait for a replacement or end up having to dispose of it. I have purchased other items that have had to be replaced because of the "delivery people" they are too hard on handling merchandise. I have had many compliments on this desk and the size is perfect for what I was looking for.

This is a great little writing desk. My 13" laptop fits perfectly in the space between the top drawers and I have plenty of space to store all of my writing accessories and knick-knacks on the top shelf. Unfortunately, the top shelf is not wide enough to store binders or books. The entire top is one piece and each side of the desk has two legs attached to the side and you simply attach each side to the top. Three pieces total. It should take no time at all to put together. The drawers hold much more than I thought they would and they slide easily and smoothly without any struggle. They are not on a track, so I was surprised at how well they glide open and closed. Most of my issue, and I saw on other reviews that others have had the same problem, was that while the desk pieces were packed with plenty of styrofoam, their isn't enough of it for the desk to remain secure and in place in the box while in shipping. When I opened my box, the styrofoam had been torn up and was flying everywhere and sticking to EVERYTHING. Two of the drawers had come loose of the desk and were tumbling around in there. I was lucky enough to not end up with scratches all over my desk or crushed drawers. The knobs on the drawers were all a bit too loose, but that was easily solved with a few turns of a screwdriver.

This desk is a great product, I bought this for my wife and she is very pleased. However, unless you own tools and have the ability to ream out the holes for the screws you will need someone to help. Two out of four holes did not align with the nut inset. Other than that issue it is a good product.

I love the wood color of the desk. It is beautiful and fits perfectly in my living room as a writing desk. The table of the desk is higher than the previous desk I had in its place. The assembly was 10 minutes! It arrived so quickly to my home. Since it said assembly required, I didn't even open the box for almost 2 months thinking that it would take me 4 hours to assemble, so I was waiting for my son to visit so he could deal with all the small pieces. The joke was on me, because when I opened the box there were only 2 pieces that needed to be added to completely assemble the desk. It is now a beautiful new addition to my living room. I just wish the drawers worked better and that they were wider. I can only put the 8 x 11 1/2 papers in the middle drawer. My previous desk had wider drawers. I miss that.

I bought this desk as a gift for my daughter so I did not actually get to see it. She said it looked great and fit perfectly in the space alloted for it. She was very pleased to get it and thought it was well constructed. The desk arrived at her home in record time so I thank you for that.

Finish was sticky and uneven. Tried stripping it ourselves and had to take to a professional, which made it no bargain. Should have sent it back.

This desk is a good deal for the price. It is very easy to put together, all the parts lined up and with the top down you could pull two chairs up on either side and use it as a table. The top hinges seem sturdy, and this is going to work great for my small office.

Love my new write desk! It is the perfect size for what I was looking for.

I was really hoping the other review was an exception, but my hopes were crushed when the desk arrived. I was greeted with cracked wood and uneven paint while unpacking this desk. I love the design, but the flaws caused a prompt return!

The Triverton Oak Writing Desk is just the right size to go in our den. My husband wanted something to put his lap top on and a place to keep stamps, tape and to sort mail. We would buy it again. I feel we got a great deal on this desk.

This is a beautiful desk and now that we finally have a sound one we are very happy with it. The first desk we got arrived right on time, but one of the leg pieces was broken. After over a week of emailing back and forth with Overstock customer care, we finally got word that they will send us a replacement part, and told us to dispose of the broken part as we see fit. So we were quite surprised to get a whole new desk instead of the replacement part. The color is beautiful, putting it together was easy, it feels sturdy and looks well made. The drawers slide well, but there are no stoppers so if a child pulls on them they may slide all the way out and spill the contents on the floor. Other than that is is a great piece. (I gave the first desk to my dad and he made a new leg for it and is very happy with it.)

this is a rather nice desk, actually too large for the space, but will work. My only complaint is that the desk is 34" tall!!! I am sure that this fact is included in the description, but I failed to notice. The height became a problem when trying to pair with a chair. The one which I brought to the beach was too short and the one I bought was too tall!! Husband cut off legs works for now!

I was stunned when I opened the shipping box because what I saw was an ashen object and I wondered iF this is really the desk I ordered. After completely unpacked the Sshape and strength of the desk is as expected but the finish was more like fireplace ash color than the oak as I expected. In addition one drawer had two holes that had been drilled in error then filled with a plastic wood type filler Had I ordered a distressed appearing desk it would have been perfect. What I have will take considerable effort to bring it to an appearance I thought I was buying in the first place. Would I recommend this product to a friend. XXX NO!!

The desk is nice and sturdy. Easy to put together. Nice antique white color. Gores well with a parsons chair, sorta dresses up the living room some.

I watched this desk for over six months - only I was watching the combination cherry/honey oak. When there was a sale, I ordered it in a hurry and did not notice that the color in stock had changed to cherry (without the honey oak). As a result, I returned the desk, never taking it out of the box. However, I will note that I called the day following the purchase. I attempted to cancel the order immediately, but it had processed, Overstock.com customer service picked it back up for me, and provided a full refund. Amazon has the desk I wanted now, the combination cherry/honey oak, however, I do not feel as comfortable ordering from Amazon as I do Overstock. I have always had a good experience with Overstock.com, so really this review is more about them, than the desk. My husband informed me that this desk would be poorly made. He was apparently able to tell that without opening it, which is not fair, but he is usually right when it comes to furniture. I loved the style so much, however, that style was more important to me. It is stained pine wood, and rather light weight. I still think that it would make a great vanity table, and would be fine for someone who was gentle with it.

I bought this desk to serve as a vanity. It is perfect for that an has great storage options. However, the drawers tip downward to an unsatisfactory degree when pulled out. I am going to have my husband apply his woodworking skills to fix this as it really is annoying as is. That is why I would not recommend it to a friend at this time.

This was a disapointment the quailty was not up to the standards I expect from O. top left cornor was dented and repaired at factory poorly , the support arms for the desk top do not touch the desk top fold down so they really don't support it. leg had bad scratch. side please had seperated and we had to put it back together. the large draw was not nailed together properly and is seperated. drawers made poorlly really should return it have to call to find out how involved that would be now that I got it together..
