The unit is made well and is well designed. It is somewhat difficult to mount on the wall and does require 2 people. When received, the front panel (the fold down leg) was broken at the hinge on one side even though it was well packed. The damage was probably from shipping; I don't think it was packed that way. I was able to easily contact Overstock.com, once they understood the problem, they arranged for a replacement panel to be sent. It took about 2 weeks to arrive, but easily installed and fixed the problem. My wife is very happy with this desk.

Read a few of the reviews. This desk is going to come to you broken. I don't think the manufacturer stores it very well. When I received it a corner had been smashed in, a handle was broken off and the lip of the slide out component was broken off completely. A hinge was also torn away from the body of the desk. It looks good but it's a gamble to get this in one piece. Even if you do, the quality is fair but not great. A lot of cheap materials were used and the stain is uneven. HOWEVER: Overstock customer service is excellent and even if you do run into some trouble they will help you with an immediate return or replacement. They were courteous and fast-acting for my trouble with the desk. Also FYI: the name for this desk is the Wyatt Writing Desk w/ Pull Out by safavieh furniture

Great desk for a small room. My daughter loves it. Not easy to hang! Measurement have to be exact. Smells like new stain but nothing out of the norm as stated in some of the reviews. Smell seems to have gone away already.

This is the fourth desk I have bought from O and it is the best. The desk is solid wood, well made, sturdy, and super easy to construct. The color is slightly darker than pictured. The desk drawer is not as sturdy as the desk. It is small and does not slide well, but I knew that from the photo. Not sure why they call it a "3-drawer Writing Desk". It has 1 drawer. The overall quality and craftsmanship, desktop space, and value of this piece make up for the drawer.

I am very pleased with this desk. I was a little apprehensive at first because of the size, the secretary style and because it is hard to tell the exact color online. The size is actually listed incorrectly. This desk is not 67 inches high. It is only 50 inches high which I was happy about. The style is different for me. I have never had a secretary style desk before. When the door/desk is open, it measures 42 iches from the back to where you are seated in front. Luckily we have an open area for the desk. If you have a small area it may not work for you. It took a little getting used to, and we make an effort not to lean on it ( just in case) but after a few days we love it. It makes for better posture as well. The color is beautiful. We were most apprehensive about that but It matches perfectly to our entertainment center that we were trying to match from the picture online. It's listed as dark walnut. It can even be called espresso. The assembly took my husband ( alone.... because I hate that kind of thing ) about 2 1/2 -3 hours. It was worth it. It is such a gorgeous piece of furniture and so sturdy. I looked in many stores and online for days before purchasing this item. Anything comparable to this piece cost more than double the price and shipping was ridiculous. I am extremely pleased and would recommend this piece.

Arrived damaged, very flimsy construction. Overstock helpful and arranged pick up of item for full refund.

This desks are solid. They look great hanging on the wall. We bought two and they have replaced a big desk in a small room. The room looks spacious. If you're looking for quality and space saving design, I'd recommend them. I would suggest going to the local home improvement store and buy some lag screws to install in the studs of your wall. The screws provided seemed a little less than adequate for the weight of the desk... not to mention I have a flare up of the "Tim the Tool Man" Syndrome on occasion, so it might be over-kill.

Looks good and works great! There was a little damage to the upper right corner of the wood in delivery..but I did not want to pack it up and send it back...it is really heavy. You definitely need 2 people to hang it!! But I love it!

For real ladies and gents, I love this desk itís so awesome. I love the way it opens to create a table like surface and its opens up to such a sweet writting desk. Itís nice and high I think I need to look for a relatively tall chair to accommodate it. I have long legs though so this is perfect for me. The sole reason I got this desk was to move my computer and random things off of my art desk to its always free for creation. Now I write in my room and no longer have to clean my art desk before I work. Perfect compact bad*** looking desk; look out for insane sometimes inappropriate comic book cruel world!!!!

This is a great idea. Very functional. Good quality. Well built. Heavy duty. The one down side -- an it's a big one, given that we've had it installed for months now and it has not dissapated -- is the odor. I've heard about formaldahyde in furniture, but this is ridiculous! This thing STINKS. It just smells bad and it's not going away. I leave it open to air out when I think of it, but still ... Love the item. Hate the smell. (Only noticable when open.) I would be five stars except for the smell. I've never had this problem with an item before ... ever.

I am very satisfied with this purchase. I purchased for a home office where the desk would be the primary piece of furniture sitting in the center of the room. While not a hefty executive desk, this piece looks great from all angles and is certainly well suited to be either put against a wall (as pictured) or sat in the center of a room (as I have it in my home office). Construction was very straightforward and not difficult. It took us about 3 hours to put together, but we did pretty casually and made a few mistakes along the way. Directions were good and no parts were missing. Everything arrived undamaged and construction is solid. Finish colors are a walnut and true-to-picture. I liken this to a desk you would purchase at a mid-level home interior/furnishings store already assembled. Such a desk would cost at least $800 delivered assembled. Looking forward to selling it for a profit when (and if) we every move! We assembled with an electric drill but could be done with hand tools. Rubber mallet is not necessary - we used a hammer covered with fabric to cushion when we needed to.

This Murphy desk is very well-built, sturdy, and attractive. The only issues we had were the directions not being as clear as they should have been (why did they give us 4 plastic anchors when we only needed 2?), and the two 2" screws for the top back of the unit were not long enough to go into the studs. We had to use 3" screws instead. That all being said, we are thrilled with the desk!

It's a tall standing desk. Good looking, good design. It's easy to assemble. Do be aware, the pullout part of the desk surface will not be flush with the other section of the desk. It's about a quarter inch difference.

Excellent workmanship and worth more than the price asked. Measure everything when hanging it and it should come out good. Its already assembled you just have to put it on the wall.

Very solid piece. All wood - no MDF. Coffee color is perfect - compliments existing walnut in room quite well. Easy assembly. Shipping was timely and it was well packaged. Looked like a fork from a lift pierced the box, but upon opening, I could see how the packaging saved it. Reason only a good rating for style? The legs are round/tapered - hard to tell from the picture - thought they were square tapered. Well worth the $***plus change.

This convertible Desk is awesome. Strong sturdy high quality wood. Needed to add extra holes since the ones it has did not match up to wall studs. My son loved his desk.

I really do like this desk. Folds up nicely, so it's out of the way. The color is a rich walnut with gold toned hardware. The shelves however, could use a few more holes on the inside for the shelf pins. That would give you more choices of the distance between shelves. I had someone install, which was a little tricky to mount on the wall. A good deal for the price. TP

A case of what you can't see online... the finish on this piece is pretty poor, although from a distance, the form is interesting. It is also really too high to use as a desk unless you use a stool instead of a desk chair. Buy for decorative use only.
