I purchased this desk after reading the reviews and was still shocked and impressed by the good quality and sturdiness of the desk. It is real wood and pretty heavy. It took no more than 15-20 minutes to assemble and it fits great in my small room. The drawer provides a good amount of storage, and is conveniently organized into different compartments. The one negative about the quality is that the paint scratches easily - not a big problem as long as you are careful and aware of this.
This desk was what we were looking for to use as a computer desk for a small apartment. It was as described and easy to assemble; the top and drawer are 1 piece and the legs just had to be screwed on. The drawer slides easily and the finish was even. We had a piece of glass cut to protect the top from use. Unfortunately, the desk must have been dropped in transit and the back top corner was slightly damaged, but we didn't want the inconvenience of sending it back.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Sturdy and easy to assemble
I like this desk. It's just what you see on the website. And the best part was that the drawer was pre-assembled and already installed in the desk. I had read reviews of other desks where the assembly was going great until the new owner had to attach the drawer and then they were tearing their hair out getting the drawer in, so I was happy to not have to deal with that frustration with this particular desk. The only downside for us was that on the underside of the desk there were six places for screws to attach the base but only 5 of the screws fit in (maybe the last hole wasn't drilled correctly or was mis-aligned), so we just left it like that with a missing screw. Otherwise this desk is perfect.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was the same: black
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems like a good quality, relatively sturdy little writing desk. One of the screws did not fit into the pre-drilled holes so we didn't use it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
If you need a small desk for a small space, in a transitional style, this is a great desk. It is large enough for my laptop, docking station and 22" monitor and still has working space (notepad, beverage, etc.).
It is a dark black with a single pull-out drawer (there are two handles and styling that makes it appear to be two drawers) which contains fixed dividers--one large compartment in the center and two smaller areas on each side for a total of five compartments. The inside of the drawer is painted, not felt.
Assembly was easy and the desk feels strudy and very solid.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is true to the description/pictures on the site.

This desk rocks! It's perfect for limited space. Gives what you need to hold a laptop, lamp and a notebook. I was optimistic when I orderded and am thrilled to be typing this from my new home office space (the size of a doorway). Quality is good. It scrateches as much as a table I purchased from **** *** - also black laquered. Value is great. It's wood (not MDF or partical board) and the price point matches costs for building something on your own. It's a great find!
I purchased 2 of them last year. do not place any liquids (water, oil, etc) on the desk's top it will strip the finish. Use coasters! also do not move the desk too much i.e. moving from place to place or room to room....the left side of one of the desk snapped in half. There's no way to replace the split wood or leg. Wish the quality was better.
The desk looks good. But the construction is not good. I went through 3 deliveries hoping that the next one would be sturdy after assembly. Here is why they were not...Under the desktop, there are 2 wood brackets glued and screwed in place. The legs get attached to these brackets. The glue on these brackets dried out, and the screws are not long enough. So, these pieces are loose. So, when the desk is fully assembled, it is is wobbly. The solution, if you are so inclined, is to remove the brackets, sand off the dried out glue, and put a bead of a strong synthetic glue along the edge and screw them back in tight. Wait a day and then attach the legs. What a pain though.
We bought two of these and like it a lot...specially the pre divided drawer. It's good for small spaces....make sure you are not purchasing it for heavy duty use.
If you are going to use this desk for several hours every day then it might show wear and tear easily and soon.....because I realized the paint job though nice is cheap....for our use its good enough. Putting it together was not a problem.
The color is a matte finish so i immediately ordered a acrylic cut to size cover for the desk to protect the top surface. The desk drawer is actually one large drawer with some dividers built in. It is very functional. Super east to put together the drawer cam installed. It took all of 10 minutes with my handy drill. Looked for a long time to find a small scale functional desk and this was a great find.
