If you are looking for a West Elm Parsons Collection for a fraction of the price this is it! I purchased it and are very happy with it. The only setback would be that the drawers are not in rollers. But this is a minor detail. Overall, Im happy with the purchase!

I was very excited to find this style of desk and in a color that I wanted. However I only had it for a couple of weeks when the paint finish started to chip. Now the top of the desk is covered in white specks and it looks horrible. The quality of the product is beyond questionable and I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this. You are better off investing in something that is a little more expensive but made to withstand actual wear and tear. It's a desk, so I'm not exactly using it to do much other than put on my make-up and general computer use. I'm disappointed that this turned out to a less than satisfactory product.
- Super easy to assemble
- Clean, subtle look
- Solid and sturdy
- Well packaged
- Drawers aren't on rollers and stick a little if you have heavy trinkets in them
I fell in love w/ the metal Parson's desk from WestElm some time back. I tried pretty hard, but I just couldn't convince myself to spend ***on a desk. I recently found this, and what an excellent alternative! Its has a simple, clean look to it. It's large enough for my computers and a notepad but doesn't dominate the room. Super easy to assemble. Would recommend; would buy again.
Couldn't be easier to assemble - simply bolt on the four legs and you're done. The desk looks great - however, after a month of normal use, the grey finish has chipped in a number of places. The chips are small and reveal the next layer of finish which is white. Good piece - just be careful or the finish will begin to chip away.
I was looking for a simple streamlined desk and when I came across this grey one, I had to get it! I liked it so much I ordered two to set side by side in a formal living room I wanted to turn into a work area. One of them came in with a deep paint scratch across the top of the table, but Overstock customer service was fast and sent me a new one free of charge.
The desks themselves are pretty sturdy and despite getting a scratched one initially, these have been holding up pretty well and have not suffered any scratches from use. These were pretty easy to put together. I love how these desks feel substantial and sleek at the same time. It has a finish to it that is not high gloss, but more of a matte finish so the solid grey color is not altered by how the light reflects off it. I didn't think it would be so difficult to find a simple desk that is affordable and in a color that desks usually don't come in...so I am thankful I found these on Overstock!
I bought this student desk and a similar sofa table. This desk worked out well. It's heavy, feels solid, does not slide, great color. It was much bigger (and deeper) than I'd expected from looking at the picture, but it looks beautiful. Would buy again.
