I was pleasantly surprised when my purchase arrived in about 3 days. This desk has clean lines and a stylish design. The wood has a nice deep black matte finish with no imperfections. It was very easy to put together in about 20 minutes. Once assembled the piece feels firm with no "wobbling." The 2 drawers are fairly deep and slide in and out well enough, although they lack sliders. Overall, this desk is a great deal for the price and I highly recommend it.
I love this desk... The finish on it is really nice, shows fingerprints easily as it is like a sateen finish, but cleans easily too. It has a decent amount of desktop space and was almost too eaasy to assemble! My only complain is that it arrived broken! :( Not terrible, but underneath the right hand drawer the wood was completely snapped, I am sure because of the delivery guy... I desperatly needed the desk tho and did not have the time nor energy for dealing with a return, so just wood glued it back together and it does not seem to be much of a problem yet. Other than that, a great desk for the price
I bought this desk as a table for my kitchen to hold the computer and the DVR for our security cameras. It's compact, looks delicate and is surprisingly sturdy for the price. I'm using my island stool as a chair, so still need to work on that, but the desk itself is wonderful.
This desk is perfect....very nice quality, affordable, easy to assemble, beautiful and not too big. I am using it as a computer desk for my new iMac. I absolutely love it! I wanted a desk that looked more like a pretty writing table but could also hold my new, sleek computer. It is everything I was hoping it would be. I would highly recommend this desk.
I have been looking for a desk that would fit perfectly in my den and this was it. I also wanted a desk that would sit higher than normal because my husband is over 6' and he cannot get his legs under a normal desk, but this one is perfect. Not difficult to assemble if you remember to remove the desk drawers. Would hightly recommend this product. Very happy in Kansas City.
I just received my desk in four days and it is in perfect condition. It was packaged very well. It is a really good quality piece of furniture. The drawers and top are already assembled which I am very pleased with because it took fifteen minutes to put together. I changed out the knobs to give it a more elegant look. Great desk for smaller spaces, yet it is a good size! LOVE OVERSTOCK.COM!!!
I am not at all adept at assembling furniture, and had planned to enlist the aid of others - but this desk was easily assembled by me in less than 15 minutes! It's a perfect size for my small apartment and looks great - I couldn't be more pleased.
This desk is perfect for a home office. It looks nice and seems to be well made. Very easy to put together, just screw the legs in. My labtop and bookends and some pictures fit nicely..the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the strong smell, which does dissipate after about a week or so. Other than that a great deal on a nice desk.
the desk is elegant and will share a living room space with another just like it-I plan to buy another desk and put the two together for occasional use as a dining table for 4-6. In the meantime, it is a fine addition to my living area as a desk. I put a table protector on top of it so that I can also use it as a buffet, and have already placed hot entrees on it-next to a very small dining table for two. I also purchased your leather, high backed side chairs to use with this desk (set of two). They too are absolutely flawless, and were easy to put together. When money allows, I will be purchasing another set of two chairs to complete my plan. As always, your products arrived within days and were packed very nicely....
The left side drawer can't slide in, because it arrived broken. I didn't notice until after I'd put the desk together...since the drawers are last to go in. I'm in New York City and it's more trouble than it's worth to return a gigantic box (like the one the desk came in). The desk does the job I needed it for, but I can't use the left drawer. Would I buy it again? No. I'm sure there are other, more sturdy desks, I could have bought if I spent a little time looking.
This is my first purchase from Overstock and I was pleasantly surprised. I've been looking for a small, light-weight desk to use with my laptop. First of all, most of the desks I was finding were bigger, bulkier and heavier. Not what I wanted. The ones that were small and light-weight were cheaper in terms of materials and workmanship, but more expensive. I was happy to find what I was looking for and for the price that I wanted to pay (it was even on sale). The desk was super easy to assemble, as it included all the parts and instructions. It was packaged very well, as I didn't find any scratches. I got what I wanted!
I ordered this on Sunday afternoon and my desk arrived on Friday afternoon for the weekend in a box the UPS so kindly carried to my front porch -- an additional bonus saving me lugging and carrying things from the store. Drawers were already in place and all I needed to do was attach the four legs -- all done in fifteen minutes. Along with my O membership discount, this was such a wonderful way to shop right from my living room on the weekend -- and the desk was a perfect fit for my new home office.
Honestly, you can't go wrong. If your expectations are in line, you will be very happy. It assembles easily and looks great. I had to shave a little wood off a trim board on the underside of a drawer so it closed smoothly, but this was very minor. It's a great little desk for the money. Serves my needs very well.
I ordered this desk because I redecorated my smallest bedroom to an office for myself. My theme called for a small black desk, just big enough to hold my laptop and a few of my scottish terrier collectibles. My walls are gray, floors hardwood, black and white toile drapes, black bookcase and this desk. It was easy to put together, everything lined up and within 15 minutes it was done and in place. The two drawers are big enough to hold essentials and the top is big enough for a lamp (red of course), a lap top (red again) , a standing magazine and two little scotty figurines. My room is only 10x10 and this is an ideal sized desk. Very stylish and well made and so easy to put together. Highly recommend this desk.
