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.
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.
The table is sleek, elegant, and is the perfect size for apartments/homes with limited space. It took us less than 15 minutes to assemble the piece. Unfortunately, a week after we've been using it, the wood beneath the right side drawer cracked! The only item we put on this desk was a laptop and we're sure that we assembled the desk with great care. For that I give this desk only 2 stars - it's not as durable as we hoped it would be.
We needed a desk for our family room computer that my husband could be more comfortable at. This works great, and the phone books fit in the drawers. Nice lines and the finish seems sturdy so far. We could have ordered it elsewhere on line, but Overstock always ships things so fast that we got it here. And, it arrived in three days!
This arrived exactly as pictured, was sturdy and very simple to assemble. It was functional within 5 minutes, we were very pleased. Drawers slide smoothly and was in prime condition, no dings or scratches to the finish during shipping.
I needed two desks, but I first bought one of these to see if I liked it. I just love it, and put the legs on the second one this morning, which even I could do, with the little wrench (or whatever it is) provided. All 16 holes on the two desks (2 screws for each leg) matched perfectly. The workmanship is flawless. They are good looking, lightweight tables. It's very good quality for this price range! Shipping was prompt, packaged well. With the Club O membership, I saved $12 on the second desk.
