The desk looks just like in the picture but the quality is not as good as I expected it to be, particularly after reading all the reviews. The wood feels light (hallow) and prefab although it's probably real wood. I think the finish makes it look like fake wood. The glass feels like good quality and it's nice and solid. The desk was easy to put together and it looks nice in our bedroom, although i probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd been able to see it first before ordering it.

OMG, this desk looks like it came from the Merchandize Mart in Chicago. It is heavy, and the aged wood look is STUNNING! Not to mention the fact that it was SUPER EASY to put together with one person! I didn't need any help, but then again, I am a handy-woman. The desk looks luxurious and expensive. I cannot wait to show it off. Working at the desk was motivating because it looks and feels so nice in my home office space. One of the best purchases for me in years.
This desk is drastically overpriced for the quality of the item. Reclaimed is code for careless finishing. The footings for the glass top are not level, glass top wobbles. The packaging was also low quality. Most of the styrafoam packing was broken into pieces by the time it arrived at home home. Fortunately this did not effect the desk.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Desk appears lighter in photos on Overstock.com.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a poorly constructed desk. The footings for the glass top are not level, glass top wobbles.
I purchased my desk quite some time ago. I cannot believe the negative comments this product is receiving! Mine is a very sturdy desk and a quality product. Nothing wobbles, shakes or disappoints. I am as thrilled with my desk as I was at the time I purchased it.
This is a great desk. I was surprised that it was shorter than I expected but I forgot to test out what the height would be with a measuring tape so that's my bad. Al-in-all, I'm pleased with the sturdiness of the product and it's easy assembly.
When our desk arrived, the back wooden piece was broken. Between Overstock and the manufacturer, we were able to get a replacement piece quickly (which is one reason I am very loyal to Overstock), but when the replacement piece arrived it was also broken. We were able to use wood glue and some extra nails to repair one of the broken pieces, and you can't tell looking at the desk that it has been patched up. I think the weight of the package overall (HEAVY glass - which is good!) may have been the culprit for the broken wood. We've gotten lots of compliments on this desk, it is light on the eyes, and has a subtle industrial look to it. Overall we are pleased, just wish it wasn't such a struggle to get it set up.
The frame is pine and look exactly as shown in the pictures. Brown and dusty. The quality is only ok since each piece of the frame is glued together and THEN assembled with screws. The glass is the only bit that was perfect. Overstock sent me two right sides -- so the holes did not line up. I called them and they were able to ship out the correct part which I received less than 2 weeks of the original delivery. Instead of sending me a left leg, they actually sent me BOTH legs (correctly) and said I can dispose of the original legs as I see fit. Great customer service on that part and I believe they would take care of you if there are other errors in your ordering. I would recommend it based on the customer service alone.
The top isn't secured to the desk. There are little rubber feet that sit between the glass and the wood frame of the desk. The glass is substantially heavy and ours hasn't budged since we assembled it.astello on Oct 29, 2013
