Cute desk for the price. Assembly was easy. Desk is heavy and very sturdy. I suggest buying some felt padding for the chair and desk legs so you don't scrape your floor.

Bought this desk in white for my 14 year old daughter. She needed a small desk for her room for homework and her laptop and this is perfect. Desk is really cute. As with the other reviews, putting it together is a task. My husband is a carpenter and the instructions were not good. Took him a while to get it together with a lot of swearing. Once done, it is cute though. My daughter is happy which at 14 is a challenge in itself. I would recommend the desk but just know you need to have some real patience to get the thing put together.
I needed a very small desk to fit in a corner of a multi-purpose room and this fit the bill. My husband and I have bought a not of 'assembly required' furniture in the last 3 years, so we didnt find this overly challenging to build. The chair was actually slightly harder to build than the desk! It is heavy when it arrives in the box, so you might want to enlist help if you need to carry it up stairs. The drawer doesn't slide super well, but that is a minor issue. I am satisfied with the purchse!
As the other reviewers said, this is not easy to put together because the instructions are poor. We found that one of the main problems was that the slides for the drawer are actually each two pieces...you need to take them apart...there is a little clip inside that allows you to do so. So there are actually four metal parts. You need to attach each of them separately. This is crucial to having the draw function properly. To make things even more confusing, the list of parts indicates that there is only one of metal piece...which makes no sense at all. But once it was complete, it's very cute and solid. I use it for a TV stand in my bedroom. The chair is very nice so I just use that as an extra. If you only need the desk part you can buy that separately and save quite a bit of money.
One of the side pieces of the desk arrived damaged. The exterior of the box was damaged, so it could have happened during shipping, but it should have been packaged better. Customer service was helpful getting a replacement part, but it took a while for the warehouse to track down the part. My bigger complaint is with the chair. Because of the ledge that is built in underneath the desk, the chair can't be pushed in all the way. If that's not a problem for you, then it's a nice chair that coordinates well. However, I found that the ETHAN HOME Salvador Saddle Back 18-inch Stool in Black worked much better. I wish I had saved my money and bought just the desk without the chair.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is average: the top of the desk scuffs up very easily, and the drawer doesn't align perfectly. It's definitely a good deal for the price, though.
By the time you finally get this thing together you will probably vow to never purchase another piece of furniture that needs to be assembled! I would rather put together a 1000 piece puzzle with a blindfold on! The picture instructions are HORRIBLE! All that being said; when you finally get it together it really is a nice piece. At tip for wives. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE WHEN YOUR HUSBAND ASSEMBLES THIS! It could save your marriage :)

I was so disappointed with this product especially because it was exactly what I was looking for! The directions were difficult to follow and read to start with! Parts were missing for the drawer so could not use the drawer! The chair top had no spot to attach to base! It was a mess! NOw I have a horrible looking desk that was suppose to be perfect!! I would not buy this product ever!!!!
