After reading the somewhat mixed reviews, I ordered this desk with a healthy dose of skepticism. I was amazed when the box showed up in perfect condition. Expertly packaged, the entire carton was completely wrapped in heavy duty plastic, and all the edges and corners had been reinforced with additional cardboard.
My husband (who is very handy) assembled the desk by himself while I was out of the house so I can not speak about the degree of difficulty regarding assembly. He did say it took him a couple of hours and he had a handful of screws left over.
The desk looks absolutely gorgeous in our home office. Truth be told, it does not have the same weight and substance as a ready-built piece of furniture from a "real" furniture store, but it looks much better than the typical "assemble-it-yourself" furniture that I've purchased in the past.
I am extremely satisfied with this purchase.

Ordered this for my 14-year-old son's room, for a laptop and work desk. The 14-year-old completed the assembly by himself in a few hours, with only three steps he needed mom to lend a pair of hands. Based on that, I don't think assembly was difficult. My only critique is that the stickers that were used to label individual pieces were placed on the "good" side of the wood, so we (he) had to work quite a bit to remove the sticky residue without damaging the finish.
My main concern when shopping for a desk was size, dark color and that it have the requirements of drawers, keyboard shelf and specific place for tower. This met all of those. The desk is utilitarian, looks fine and does it job. Nothing special, but then again, it wasn't supposed to be. Good pricing.
I love the look of the desk. However, it was hard putting it together. took me and my fried 3 hours. They instruction were mostly picture, even when it came to the screws which were many. It lloks good. I recommnd using differnt handles. Once I put better brass handle it came alive.
Putting this product together was a disaster. Made outside the USA and the directions were very few. Following the pictures helped a little. Also the quality of the product is very inferior. One piece got completely shattered as I tried to hook it up. Can't even try to support it.
Oh well, you get what you pay for!
First desk came broken but customer service was great, they sent out a new one, took a little longer than I wanted but they did send me a ups return slip for the other one. It looks great and is good quality for the price.
What does it mean to have a "1-inch Softform top" - when I look of "Softform", it has nothing to do with furniture. I, too, am worried about the construction based on the reviews.stacy77 on Nov 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The reviews say the desk is difficult to put together with pieces missing, scratches, and poor instructions. Has anything been done to address this? It is a barrier to purchasing this desk that otherwise seems very appealing.laurencole24 on Aug 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
