I needed a new, smaller desk for my bedroom. After some research, I landed on the Renate Writing Desk. I'm always a little hesitant when buying furniture without being able to see it in person, but the other user reviews and pictures gave me confidence to pull the trigger. I'm glad I did. This is a beautiful desk that looks much more expensive then it's price. Instructions and were easy to follow and assembly was easy as well. Total setup time = 45 minutes.
I love the look of the desk from afar, but the texture of the top looks and feels cheap, particularly on the greyish model. It wasn't expensive, so I can't expect much. I have the Renate console table with the darker finish, and it's much more attractive. All in all, I'm satisfied.
Needed a desk for a small room in a corner for not much use through out the year. Basically it's a desk for when my college age daughter visits home from school and for me to put my sewing machine. Pros: Easy to put together. Very sturdy/heavy/decent quality furniture for knockdown. Beautiful gray wash wood. Great size for small places. All wood surfaces which is very nice. Cons: Would have loved a drawer, but knew that before I purchased it. Thought it was a little pricey for the knockdown furniture that it is. Overall, I like the desk. looks great and fits well in the room.
Great look, sturdy, nice space. The bolts all fit perfectly, not so much the screws that add stability - much harder to install, and we skipped a few because the holes didn't line up. Definitely need two people for assembly and give yourself 45 minutes.
This product came super fast, was well packaged and the instructions were clear. The hardware was nicely organized. It took about an hour of my time to assemble. The product is heavy / sturdy and looks great! I would highly recommend this product!
