This is a surprisingly solid little table and a great value for the price. Assembly was a breeze. It looks great just the way it is, but I added a small pull to the drawer which was easy to do. (Just make sure you drill from the front to avoid any visible chipping.)
I think "glossy" is a bit of an exaggeration. The finish is very smooth with some definite sheen to it, but it is my no means lacquered or real glossy, so just be aware. It is very sturdy and nice. It would be great to add some gold hardware to the drawer. Price is great for this piece. I have seen lesser quality priced much higher.
It came in two days, and it took my husband about 30 minutes to put it together. It almost "snapped" together, so comparatively easy was it to assemble. It's the right size for functioning as an almost-desk in our vacation rental where the guest needs to pick his own spot to locate his work. The drawer is already built-in, does not require assembly.
This is a solid design piece and great value for the very reasonable price. The legs are easy to attach. I have also bought the desk in this series. I would recommend having a piece of glass cut for the top as it marks easily and also because the look is more high end.
This is a really terrific piece - exactly as advertised. It was shipped promptly and was VERY well packed. There were 4 legs, 1 table top (with drawer already in place). This only required inserting legs into the top and tightening the legs with 2 screws per leg. EASY!!! No drill needed, no special tools needed (a small wrench was included). I had it put together in about 10 minutesIt's really a lovely piece and I'm very pleased with it. Right now I have it behind a couch but I can see endless other uses for it. In other words, it's a VERY versatile piece, with its clean lines. I'm even considering getting a second one 'cause the price, quality and construction are so terrific!
This table works well as a secondary surface in my office (not as the main desk). It's a tight space, so the scale of this piece is just right. The quality is not amazing (drawer doesn't glide out smoothly), but good enough, and it's sturdy. Also be aware that the finish is NOT glossy / high-gloss, as advertised, just a very bright white. Overall, I like this table and would recommend it to a friend.
This table is a cheap imitation of the Parsons Desk. My table was missing one of the holes to put the screw through, so I ended up with one wobbly leg (I decided it wasn't worth it to waste time returning it). I only kept it for a year and then got rid of it. Definitely not sturdy enough to use as a desk, but OK if you need a cheap entry table.
I love this table. It assembled very easily by just attaching the four legs. It works great as a console/sofa table but could also be used as a small desk/writing table if necessary. I am very pleased with the glossy finish and I would definitely recommend this table.
