The Franklin Writing Desk is a perfect mid-sized unit for the home office or living room settings where it can be used in place of a console table. Its large surface area is ideal for a monitor, laptop or tablet. This compact writing desk is a perfect fit for homes where office space is needed yet floor space is at a premium. The desk is large enough to spread out your work throughout the day, but provides enough storage to keep personal papers private. Tuck your work away each evening in its assorted drawers and slide your keyboard out of sight with the covered keyboard tray.
The middle drawer of the desk folds down to reveal a hidden pull-out keyboard drawer, so you can store your keyboard out of sight when not in use. The brushed-nickel knobs add an elegant look to the desk, and the numerous drawers allow you to store everything you need to get business done throughout the day.

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.

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.
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?
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.
