  • Sturdy and hip

    Needed a smaller desk for my new home , this offered functionality, and love the open shelves. I am using a mix of antique dynamite wooden crates alternately with woven grass storage baskets as file keepers. The look is great. Also, easy to assemble. Beware, this is no sissy piece of furniture. I'm sure it would win in a head on with a Smartcar.

  • Very strong desk

    My uncle put the desk togetere for me and after he finished I was stunned how beautiful this desk was. Very rustic looking, perfect as a desk or work bench I love it!! I may purchase the book shelf to match the desk. Again I ordered thsi product for my home in Bermuda. It wa shipped to my overseas shipper in New Jersy for the voyage to Bermuda. Again, the furniture box was intact, no rips or tears. Very well packaged and protected. Thank you overstock!

  • great desk

    This desk is a terrific bargain. It's solidly built and looks similar to others that cost more in stores. It seemed to be easy to assemble. Or at least that's what my boyfriend said.

  • Strong and Stylish Desk

    I'm a jewelry designer and recently remodeled my studio. I needed a strong work bench/desk but insisted on finding something stylish. This desk is perfect. The finish is gorgeous - urban contemporary with the grey wash wood and steel legs. Assembly went quick - I always use a drill to speed things along. Very heavy and sturdy - I move anvils around the surface and hammer frequently. It meets my needs and is flat out gorgeous!

  • Impressive Desk

    I'm so glad I like this desk! It would have been a bear to send back! It is a well made (high quality) desk and extremely heavy. You would easily pay a lot more money for this desk at another store ( Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel). I like how functional it is for both work and play. It gives ample room for my lap top computer and my hobbies (photography and scrapbooking). It has a retro, and yet vintage look, which fits in the decor of my office. My friend, who has assembled many things throughout his life, stated on easy the directions were to follow and simple to put together.

  • Sooo nice

    This is a substantial desk! It was so easy to put together. I dunno how long the wood will hold up to the elements, so I will be coaster-girl from now on. But it's a really nice desk.

  • Love This Desk!!

    I've had this desk for more than a year now and LOVE IT. It's gorgeous, looks like a much-spendier Restoration Hardware piece, and fits in with my industrial-rustic interior design. I have a few pieces from the Renate line, and all were simple to construct and very stable. I wasn't planning to spend quite as much for my "budget office," but I think the price was more than worth it for a look I couldn't find anywhere else anywhere near this price.

  • Exactly the look I wanted

    It arrived in about a week, and was a very heavy box (about 80 pounds.) However, I just dragged it into our foyer with the help of my 11 yr old son, and opened the box there, and carried the pieces into our family room where it was to reside. I put it together myself within 90 minutes, with the allen wrench that was included, and my own cordless screwdriver. It's very sturdy, well made, and exactly the look I wanted. I found seagrass baskets to fit the shelves at the Container Store. I matched it with an upholstered dining room chair from Target, which is the perfect height. I'm thrilled with the final result, and would make the same decision to buy it again. :)

  • LOVE this desk!!!!!

    The pricetag may be a little hefty but I'm so glad I splurged and got this desk! Before, I was using a cheap department store desk and a small corner table pushed next to each other so that I could fit my laptop, monitor and printer. Now I'm able to put my printer on one of the side shelves and I'm left with SO much space! I could spread out books to write a research paper, make/decorate a poster or do just about any other arts and crafts with the space this desk provides. This desk is very sturdy and looks absolutely stunning from all angles. I am only 5'0"/115lbs and i was easily able to put it together by myself in less than a half hour. My only complaints are minor, but worth mentioning. There was a small scratch on the left corner of mine, but due to the "reclaimed" look of the desk it's not very noticeable and actually doesn't bother me at all. Also, the wood has a sort of oily feel to it right out of the packaging that leaves a strange residue on clothes and hands--but washes right out. After assembling, I wiped down the entire desk twice with some multi-surface spray and now the oily residue is gone. Lastly, the desk is much darker than appears in the picture, but still looks fantastic. I plan to keep this desk for a VERY long time and I would definitely recommend it to a friend!

  • Can you please tell me the size of the shelves and the spacing between each? Thanks.

    • Hello ellenaschn, Each shelf is 14.5 inches wide, and there is roughly 11 inches of space between each shelf. Thanks for shopping with us.

    • I just bought baskets for my own, and they will take a basket that is 10inches wide, and no more than 10.5 inches high (11 inches will not allow it to slide out the front.) I do have two small wooden open file boxes that I have hanging files in, sitting on the bottom shelf. Unfortunately they are 11 inches tall (which fit between the shelves, but are too high to clear the metal support at the front of the shelf, in order to pull them out the front), so I have them sitting sideways on the bottom shelf and I pull them out from the inside, rather than from the front of the shelf. It's works perfectly fine for me, but that's pretty much the only way you can do hanging files with it.

  • Can someone explain to me why this desk is sold as "solid hardwood" and in Q&A jhugh2907 states that when a panel was broken it revealed that the panel is made of fiberboard and laminate? RH sells 60" x 30" for $700 and that one is real wood. So I wouldn't be thinking to buy a fake laminate and fiberboard for $500+.

    • Hello mishkla, I'm sorry that is incorrect. This is made of fiber board. I will have that corrected. Have a great day!

  • Are the wood panels solid wood, a fiberboard with laminate, etc?

    • It is fiberboard with laminate.

    • It seems to me that this is solid wood through and through - I have been so impressed with this desk. It is rock solid and huge. LOOOOOVE IT.

    • Its laminate. I accidentally broke a bottom board and the laminate pulled up from the fiberboard.

  • Is it possible to attach a keyboard tray underneath the desk? I would have to be able to screw it in...thank you!

    • Yes, I think so - the top is solid wood and very thick.

  • How secure is the table top to the legs? I need to mount a monitor arm to the desk. Do you know how it is attached?

    • The top is very secure!!!!! It is secured by screws. Its solid! I have monitors (2) and a printer on it. The top is solid and so are the legs. This desk is heavy too, which is an added plus for support!

    • Very secure, I wold consider mounting a monitor arm.

    • The legs are bolted and screwed to the table top, so once together it will not go anywhere!

  • How smooth is the top, in terms of writing etc?

    • Hello twsta, other customers have reviewed that the desk is textured on the top. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • I would not purchase as a writing desk, unless, you put down a writing pad as the top is somewhat textured.

    • This desk is not completely smooth on top and does have ridges around it as well. However easily fixed by using a notebook or something else to give yourself a smooth surface.

  • How thick is the table top? (I need to know clearance underneath, but I assume the first question is easier to answer.) Thank you!

    • Hello strixau, unfortunately the requested information is unavailable at this time. We are still working to receive this information and once it should become available we will notify you with an update. Sorry for the incontinence and thank you for shopping with us!

  • What is the distance from the back of the overhang to the metal, I will be putting a radiator under the desk against the wall and need to make sure there is room for the desk to be flush with the wall.

    • Hello jgibea, Thank you for your inquiry! The overhang will be 1- 1 inches. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!

  • Would it look okay and work to put 2 of these together in an L Shape?

    • Thank you for shopping with us juliomedina. It will work but you will have to take into account that you will have approximately 10 inches difference from a book shelf to have access between both spaces where you would sit so the two desks won't be flush. I hope this helps.

  • It's more of a comment than a question. I am very disappointed that I have been watching this desk for a very long time to see if it would go on sale only now to see the price has been raised? It was something like $479 I believe. If here IS any promotional percentage off of this to bring it back down to the original price, that just turns me off even more. I will not buy again.
