This is a lovely desk I purchased to use for my kids' computer. I love the look, it was super easy to assemble. However, after I put it together and put our standard sized chair under it, did I notice that it has much less leg space between the underside of the desk and my chair. Typically, the center drawer on desks are narrower than the side drawers to allow for more leg room, but this one does not have that. Even for me, at 5'2" (and thin), it is an issue, and the tops of my legs touch the bottom of the drawer. For anyone taller, it would be a major problem and would make the desk a return. It's too bad, it's a great looking desk.
Other reviewers raved about how sturdy it is, but it is a little wobbly, even with the legs screwed in tightly.
I am delighted with this piece. Attaching the legs couldn't have been easier, and I didn't even need to break out the drill to make sure everything was secured. All the pre-drilled holes lined up perfectly, the drawers were completely flush with the desk and smooth, and in general the finish was perfect (except for some faint chips to the finish where the edges come together in the casing around the drawers, but it's not TOO noticeable). This is a very solid, beautiful piece, and while I'm not the biggest fan of the pulls, that's just a personal choice and I can easily get new ones that are the same size. Someone else mentioned that it's hard to fit your legs underneath the piece because there's not very much clearance, and as a 5'3" woman I had similar difficulty. Fortunately the chair I ended up using has a slightly lower seat, which took care of the problem (although now the desk surface is significantly higher to me). But all in all I'm very happy with this piece and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Received the desk with a deep scratch on top, called in for a replacement. Replacement desk has scratches on top too! how pathetic
i am done re ordering this desk. will ask for a partial payment refund, since i don't have any faith in this product anymore.
At first I was hesitant about purchasing a desk on-line, but after viewing the photo and reading the description decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did - the desk out weighed my expectations and is perfect for our office/guest room. The quality is much better than I expected for the price - the finish is nice and there were no scratches or defects - the drawers open and closely smoothly. We expected the desk to come in several pieces requiring some time to assemble - not the case - my husband was pleasantly surprised to find it came in one piece with the drawers already attached and all he had to do was add the legs and drawer pulls - assembly took no more than 15-20 minutes and the desk was ready to use. I have used it daily for the past week and love it. Delivery was fast and the package was received in excellent condition. Would highly recommend this product.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and workmanship of this desk. Dovetail joints in the two small drawers and solid wood construction throughout the piece. Even the drawer bottoms are real wood. NO PARTICLE BOARD or VENEER. Great quality for the price. Took 10 minutes to install the solid wood legs. Everything else came assembled.
Contrary to others reviews, this desk is beautiful, came with all it's pieces and no damage. When I inquired of the status of delivery I was told that these desks are "custom made" on demand. This is a SOLID wood desk and well worth the price. My only complaint is that my account continues to say "processing" even after the desk is sitting in my house. Overstock has to this date, never disappointed me with quality and service. I consider OS to be almost a "one stop shop".
I thought that the chair shown in the picture came with the desk. When I realized that it didn't, I tried to order the chair separate but had to order two and I did not want to do that. Other than that, it is fine.
