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.

The desk arrived promptly. As others have noted, it is very heavy. It was easy to assemble and is a solid desk, perfect for my studio. There were several spots where the finish was scraped. I easily touched these up with my artist's fluid acrylic paint. The distressed finish was very forgiving. The size, style, and shelf configuration suits my need for a work space with storage perfectly.
I'm not sure there's a lot that I can say that hasn't been said already, but this desk is definitely good looking and the wood / wood composite is heavy & solid (I don't think it's actually solid wood just based on the feel).
The metal frames seem a tad on the light side when compared to the wood. It's reasonably easy to assemble although it will take a decent amount of time.
The one thing that I never considered, but that I would've liked to have known beforehand is that the desk top is not very smooth. This makes things like writing and even moving a computer mouse less than ideal on the desk w/out a mat or pad. I use a trackball anyways so it's not a big deal for me, but fyi for those who intend to use it that way.
I debated between two very different looking pieces, this one and http://gingkofurniture.com/shop/metro_desk/.
Design: The area space/depth of this overstock desk is great. I can easily fit my imac, printer, hard drives, accessories, mouse pad and still have it look minimal and clean.
Build: The quality is good in that it feels substantial/solid. It's quality is only so/so in that within the first hour I had the table it chipped. It was such a pain to carry and assemble that I'm going to live with this chip and just turn it to the wall. There are some other areas where the finish is starting to scratch off already (1/2 day of use). Luckily the look is a little shabby so it all blends, and I bought the warranty. But I don't think the quality is as fantastic as everyone else raves. But yes, it is indeed solid.
Delivery/assembly: The delivery man left this in my apartment building lobby and I (female, 30s) had to carry it up four flights of stairs. I had to open the box in the lobby and take it upstairs in pieces. The main top section is particularly heavy -- I was barely able to maneuver it myself. The assembly took about an hour. It's straightforward and just requires attention but it's not overly complex. I still am not sure where the included screws go, but other than that, the directions are clear.
Overall, it's good and i'm keeping it. But I am not as over the moon about it as some other reviewers.
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

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
