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.

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!

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!

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.

I was skeptical before buying the desk, hoping it would be similar to the photos and be sterdy. It looks even better in person and was incredibly easy to assemble. If you're wavering on whether or not to purchase this desk, do it, you'll love it!
This desk was so striking I had to have it. I love the idea of open shelves, and I love the symmetry of the desk. It is heavy and sturdy and my partner said it was easy to assemble. I can't say how well it holds up over the years as I've only had it a week. I can say it is very pretty and I receive compliments when people visit.
This desk is a convincing "solid wood" facsimile but as others have pointed out, it is not wood but a pressed veneer. The only thing I'd add is the surface has a faux-rough woodgrain so it isn't a perfectly smooth desk for writing.
When assembling the desk, not all of the screw holes lined up. We tried switching the shelves because we thought they might side-specific, but that wasn't the case. We had to re-drill some of the holes, which was a huge inconvenience. We didn't think it was worth it to go through the process of packaging the desk, sending it back, and waiting for a new desk. I would think for the price, the quality would be much better.
We purchased the desk and bookshelf together and are happy with the style and function of both pieces. The only negative is that the wood top is not real, distressed wood like the description suggests, but it's a heavily processed pressed wood veneer with a "distressed" look. Overall, it's a great size and shape, and is sturdy and functional, and a great alternative to Restoration Hardware, etc. at a can't-beat price.

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+.mishkla on Feb 26, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello mishkla, I'm sorry that is incorrect. This is made of fiber board. I will have that corrected. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 13, 2014

It is fiberboard with laminate.jhugh2907 on Feb 11, 2014
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.kschwehm on Feb 17, 2014
Its laminate. I accidentally broke a bottom board and the laminate pulled up from the fiberboard.jhugh2907 on Feb 17, 2014

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!havencat on Jan 21, 2014
Very secure, I wold consider mounting a monitor arm.balarie on Jan 25, 2014
The legs are bolted and screwed to the table top, so once together it will not go anywhere!erinc24 on Feb 4, 2014
Hello twsta, other customers have reviewed that the desk is textured on the top. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 2, 2014
I would not purchase as a writing desk, unless, you put down a writing pad as the top is somewhat textured.balarie on Jan 25, 2014
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.erinc24 on Feb 4, 2014

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.jgibea on Dec 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello jgibea, Thank you for your inquiry! The overhang will be 1- 1 ½ inches. I hope this helps. Happy shopping! overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 2, 2013
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.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 28, 2013
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.lcollette22 on Jun 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
