The desk is really well made and pretty easy to put together. Be aware that the directions are English but this wasn't the writers first language! At one point the directions were wrong (the legs). They had the directions switched from one side to the other. You would figure it out if you follow the diagram carefully. Still, it was an easy fix and again the product looks great. Can't beat the price! Fast delivery too.
I needed a corner desk in my empty bedroom to put our computer on. My son told me bamboo is very strong building material so I chose this, and I am thrilled with my choice. The shelves are perfect for smaller baskets with supplies. The middle drawer is perfect for a supply of paper.
It is just a really cool, sturdy desk! I have had GREAT success with MANY purchases from Overstock.com this summer as I helped my three sons move into their own homes and worked on my own empty nest.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It looks just like the picture, and goes great with my medium oak furniture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a sturdy, attractive piece of furniture. Bamboo is very strong.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was very accurate.
This table is great. It has the characteristic bamboo markigs, so you can be sure it's sustainable & bamboo. It has a very wide drawer and fits wonderfully in the corner. Also has shelves below, but you don't have to attach those if you want more room underneath. I did attach them. I actually used this in my kitchen to place a microwave on and put the 2 recycle baskets underneath. Put it together by myself. Goes great w/the bamboo utensils and napkin holder I already had. : ) Love it, love the earth friendliness!!!!!!!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Awesome!
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
We received this desk yesterday and like many reviewers had some difficulty with the directions but in about 1.5 hrs we had this assembled. Fits great in a corner, gives a lot of space to the room while providing a functional workspace. A few dings on some areas but nothing you would notice unless you were giving a very close eye. Like any office furniture that comes in pieces to assemble it is not perfect but if you are looking for an affordable, space saving desk this is a good one.
Purchased a similar desk from another company but had to return it because the side wall and dowels were split, even in the box. Ended up paying about *** more for this desk but 'boy' was it money well spent compared to the piece of junk I had previously become familiar with, This proved to be a great buy. Follow assembly instructions as written and do not tighten any screws or bolts until all are in place. An easy process that should take about an hour in total. The end result is a super sturdy, nice looking addition to my condo bedroom. I had also purchased an upholstered chair from Overstock that was the perfect compliment as opposed to the office chair style of seating.
The desk looks exactly as it does in the picture. The materials were a little cheaper than expected, but you get what you pay for. The only problem I had was the condition the box showed up in... the box had a large rip/tear down the side when it arrived. The tear was so big that I was surprised the desk wasn't damaged. Other than that, I like the desk.
My husband and I were amazed at how sturdy and well-built this desk is for the money. It is simple and good looking and has a nice little drawer and storage area underneath. The bamboo is very hard and pretty with a nice grain. It fits perfectly into the corner and provides a good deal of storage space without taking up much room. The price was fantastic for a piece of furniture of quality this high. I do recommend it. It is a great little desk!

Is this desk solid bamboo? Or veneers over particle board? I ask because I've seen the same desk on another website and a reviewer there complains that it's really particle board w/ bamboo veneers. Particle board emits a chemical smell that I can't have in the house because of a family member with severe allergies, so I thought I would ask.ab2013 on May 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I believe it is solid bamboo, and there was never a chemical smell. I'm sitting at it right now, and it looks like solid bamboo to me. I've been very happy with this desk...it's the only desk in the house, and I sit at it every day while working on my computer.draesmith on May 14, 2013
Hi ab2013, sorry for the delayed response. Overall the desk is made of bamboo. However the inside drawer panel and the back of the desk are made of engineered wood. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
