Looks stylish and works very well for my home office.Read More
The desk is a little on the short side, so my office chair won't slide underneath. It's an easy fix, just bought myself furniture risers. Also, the middle drawer keyboard pull out doesn't work. I use my laptop on my desk so it's not an issue, but may be if your computer has a detached keyboard.Read More
The writing desk is perfect for my laptop & has enough room for my printer. Fits into the small space in my kitchen perfectly. The only drawback is the height. A standard chair does not allow enough leg room. Looking for a shorter chair that doesn't cost as much as the desk. Although I do not need the keyboard tray, it holds my paper & calendar with easy access. And it came with only the legs needing to be put on. Was easy & I would recommend it to anyone with a small a space or for a kids room.Read More
Easy to assemble, small size is perfect for space. Top split apart after assembly.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
The first desk had some damage but the second was in good condition and works well in our bedroom. The drawers do not work smoothly , that is the only flaw. Otherwise very nice.Read More
It's OK. Was kind of a pain to assemble. Pull out drawer rollers were jammed at an angle and would not budge. Had to unscrew and reassemble to get to pull-out. Also, very front left corner (one of the MOST noticeable corners) wood was damaged as in a gouge or chunk missing. This was not done in shipping (was very well packaged). It is stained over, so was manufactured with less than A grade wood. Surprised quality inspection did not catch this. Or, maybe they did....and that is why it's sold on Overstock at a low price?Read More
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.Read More
