I swooped this up in a second I was so excited. It looks just like a Crate and Barrel desk I have been lusting over for my redecorating project for a few months but this is so much cheaper. Great find.

Everything about this transaction was great. Product was well packed. You could see great concern ensuring the desk was not damaged in shipping. Assembly was well documented. Desk is rich in color, is sturdy in design and exactly what we were hoping for. The drawer has well thought out cubicles. Many similar desks make cubes too small for anything but paper clips. This desk has variable sizes in the drawer that make it quite useful. The glass top is thick and really adds class to the desk. I love it and would purchase again in a second.

This desk is perfect. Simple, really practical and elegant. The price was amazing and the quality great. The storage spaces are great, using no additional place, causing no discomfort. Finally I have a useful and comfortable desk to work on that also looks elegant and stylish. Thanks.
All the reviews about this desk are true. It's sturdy, well built and assembly was a breeze. It took me only 20 minutes to put the whole thing together. I love the cubby storage areas on the slide out desk tray. It keeps my desk clean and minimal. I was worried at first that the glass may not hold the weight of my 27" iMac but the tempered glass does it's job. My only complaint would be that the slide out keyboard tray, while very smooth in operation, is almost TOO smooth. Sometimes it slides in and out when I'm typing. Would be nice if there was a way to lock it into place when slid out. Other than that, you can't beat the price of this. My friend pointed out that it looks exactly like his desk he bought at Crate & Barrel a few years ago for MUCH more.

It arrived in two boxes which were very well packed. The glass top was in one which was very heavy and arrived in great shape. The other box was the wooden parts. It was very easy to put together, but best of all it looks great. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

This is a beautiful desk and a great value for the price. It looks similar to a Crate and Barrel desk that was easily double the cost. Assembly was quick and easy because the keyboard tray and sliding mechanism were already attached to the top piece of the desk. It looks very modern and expensive.
The description says this table has at least some MDF "wood" in it. It is light (without the glass) and if it has much, I can't tell. It seems to be predominately solid rubber tree. I bought to use as the desktop for home hobby recording and it worked out great. The keyboard sits on top with plenty of room to spare for monitors and clutter.
Had no issues putting this desk together.The pull out tray has a flat area in the front which can accommodate a keyboard and a mouse with mousepad. Behind the flat area on the pull out tray are storage areas: Large | Large | 3 small vertical ones | 1 medium | 1 medium. My large storage bins are holding my usb and noise canceling headsets. The medium size trays hold pens well, and the small ones would work for paperclips, etc. Love the look of the desk. Its simple yet stylish and provides functionality. I enjoy being able to tuck stuff away and not have a cluttered desktop.
My only complaints about the desk are:
1. I did not have a mousepad originally and after a few hours of use I noticed wear marks starting to form on the pull out tray. Make sure you invest in a mousepad.
2. The pull out tray catches pulling it out and putting it back in. Perhaps this is a safety feature but I find it a bit annoying. You must lift the tray a bit while pushing/pulling the tray to get it over the hump.
Nice solid glass-top desk. Easy to assemble. Front pull-out can store a nice amount of supplies, however tends to move a bit when using the keyboard. I might need to try weighting it down when using it. Otherwise, another fine purchase from Overstock.
I bought a black leather chair. Is the brown in this wood dark enough that I can get away with a black leather chair? Or will it look odd?chicago83 on Sep 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I have a black leather chair, purchased from Overstock as well, and it looks great with the desk.icode4food on Sep 24, 2013
It might as well be black. It is very dark.ajayjohn on Oct 2, 2013
How much space / clearance is between the pull out tray and the glass top? Also what is the length and depth of the flat top of the pullout tray (not including the storage spaces)? I'm looking to see if I can fit a music keyboard on the tray - the keyboard is about 40x5x13 inches (the 40in length by 5in height and 13in deep).

Thank you for shopping with us tony456. The sliding shelf dimensions are: 41.5 inches wide x 17.625 inches deep x 2.25 inches height. Have a great day.

The clearance is roughly 2.25". It fits a keyboard and mouse on top of a mousepad just fine.icode4food on Sep 24, 2013
Is there a lip on the front edge of the pull out shelf where your wrists would go if you kept a keyboard on top of that drawer as pictured?zozosiglet on Feb 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the item is as pictured with a raised lip at the edge of the pull out tray. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 11, 2013
Based on the item I received the "lip" is as flat as the tray. I had no problems putting my keyboard and mouse on the pull-out tray. The lip only extends downwards so it is easy to pull the tray out. It doesn't interfere with my wrists when typing.jeunesse on Apr 9, 2013
