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.
The glass top is thick and great quality. However, the rest of the desk is very light (as in weight) wood. Not a very sturdy piece. It actually says in the instructions "do not use to support weight". Also, the holes for one of the crews was off a bit, so I had to snap off a dowel in order for the screw to fit. The look of the desk is as pictured. I really like the style, but again I was expecting a bit more sturdy piece of furniture.

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.
The entired back brace was broken, so we drilled the pieces together. In addition, the glass top was broken (corner broken off). It may have been due to shipping, but it is definitely a cheap manufactured item.
Once assembled this desk looks very rich. When I opened the box I was worried because the wood pieces are so lightweight that it seemed flimsy. After putting it together which was super simple, it looks sturdy and expensive. The glass top is really thick and beautiful. The distressed wood is not as distressed looking nor as grey as I thought it looked in the picture. It is more of a warm dark brown with a slight grey undertone. The difference of the color from the picture is the only reason I didnt rate this product as excellent. The total package after I put it together and put it in my home office looks super expensive and I have received many compliments on it. I love it and would recommend it to others.
Hi gdrummond, we were able to verify this information with our support team. The height from the floor to the underneath section of the glass top is 29.6”. The height from the floor to the bottom of the wood rail running side to side is 28.25”. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 7, 2014
I dont know the exact height but I it is the perfect height for use with a kitchen chair.wisconsinkelli on Feb 13, 2014
From the floor to the underside frame is 27 3/8. From the floor to the underside glass 29 5/8. Hope this helps.dmandgm on Feb 16, 2014
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
