This contemporary espresso desk is constructed of durable wood veneers and adds subtle sophistication to your home or office. The sleek, elegant construction of the legs and dark espresso finish make this piece stand out in many existing decors....more
The dimensions of the desk in the product details are not right. It is four inches longer and a bit more than four inches deeper bringing it to 59'' W, 27,5 D X 30 H. Fortunately, it worked out for our space. It is definitely a great looking piece. Although it was well packed when it came, we were disappointed to see a few nicks rigth in the front part. Overall, we are still happy with it and the price was reasonable.
This desk looks like it is from Crate and Barrel, and was VERY easy to set up -- it even came with it's own screwdriver and wrench. I would recommend getting a drill to make tightening easier, but overall I'm very pleased.
I bought this desk for my daughter who needed a desk with a large surface area that she could use for her large drawings and artwork. She loves it. It was shipped in excellent condition and had all the parts and instructions. It was easy to put together in a short period of time. I would definitely recommend this product.

This desk is really awful. When I took it out of the box, one of the side (support) pieces literally fell apart. I had to glue, clamp and screw it back together. The drawer was so out of line and so shaky that I had to glue it together, clamp it and screw it to the underside of the top with some angle irons. The side pieces wouldn't pull in close enough (that connecting/fastening hardware is hopeless), so I also had to glue, clamp and reinforce that with screws and angle irons. I bought this to use on stage for a theatre production, and I'll be lucky if it makes it until the end of the run. It was a complete waste of money and it wasted a lot of my time. Grrrrr.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was fine

How accurate was the on site description of the product? somewhat misleading, perhaps
When I saw two big boxes, I wondered if this was going to be one of those projects that would sit in my office forever....however, it was easy to assemble (and I have minimal manual dexterity!) and aesthetically pleasing. Overall, impressed for my first shot with overstock.com.
After reading other reviews I was a little apprehensive about purchasing this desk, but due to the style and the price (this desk goes for 300+ at other vendors) I decided to go ahead and purchase the desk.
Shipping and packaging - the shipping was quick, however there was damage to a corner (very minor) that was scraped in shipping - it was definitely not a manufacturing issue. In a nut shell the packaging is not sufficient enough to protect the weight of the desk, so the box breaks, and the corner protection gets loose and comes off in the box. I was able to touch up the corner with a paint marker and decided to keep it.
Assembly - the desk is simple to assemble if you follow the instructions. It took about 30 minutes to put together from start to finish. All tools and hardware are included, however I used an electric screwdriver. It is easy to see where people will have issues with the assembly: If you over-tighten the cam screws the cam nuts will not be able to lock onto the screw. Also, if you over-tighten the screws you can strip out the anchors in the wood, which would make everything loose. Basically, don't over-tighten anything and you will be fine. The plus with this desk is since there are no staples or nails used in the assembly everything can be removed easily for transportation.
Appearance / weight - personally, I believe this desk is beautiful. The finish is dark, but definitely not black. On a calibrated screen the color is darker than the actual product. I did not have any issues with nicks in the furniture, other than the corner that I mentioned above. The chemical smell went away in less than 24 hours. The feet could have been bigger on this unit, but it should be much of an issue to replace them if you ever need to. The desk does not move. I tried to shake it and knock it from the sides and it wouldn't budge. This is a heavy piece, which is a good thing!
Issues - this is purely personal, but I had to take the drawer off after a day. My seat sits up fairly high so my legs would hit the drawer. Other than that this desk is great. Especially for the price.
Needed a desk/craft table for my home office and this table works great. Large enough to hold my printer, laptop and files and still room on the other end to work on little projects and even set up my yarn swift and ball winder. LOVE IT
I REALLY like the style and construction of the desk
My only issue is with the drawer...it keeps falling apart. Because of the drawer's location, the chair seems to always bump it, which causes it to fall apart. We had to add a few extra screws to fix the problem

When writing on this desk surface on paper, does an impression get left into the desk wood surface? Some desktops I have found on the market are very soft wood.

How thick is the panel that goes halfway down the back of the desk? Would I be able to attach a cable organizer to it? Thanks.innominate227 on May 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello innominate227, the thickness of the back panel is .59”. I don’t think that it would be sturdy enough to attach a cable organizer to it. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 20, 2013
If the cable or not that heavy they may be okay. Just watch the weightsweetie1969 on Jun 25, 2013
I have 4 of these desks. I don't think its a good idea to attached to the privacy panel on the back of the desk, but we are going to try to install cable organizers under the desk and attach them directly from underneath up into the desk itself as the desktop is so thickcpalmer123 on Jul 1, 2013
