This desk looks exactly like the WE parson desk for half the price. The only difference is that is not as glossy but it still looks great. There was a small dent on the top of the desk (during shipping) but barely noticeable. Very modern and simple.
This is a very pretty desk for half of what a chi-chi retailer is charging for something very similar. Well packed, delivered quickly. Unfortunately with ready-to-assemble pieces, there always has to be a flaw. With my desk, one corner's two screw holes were not drilled through as they should have been. I no longer own a drill, but will have to get one to attach the fourth leg.Otherwise, very nice. Hopefully, it won't wobble.
I had been eying a white parsons desk exactly like this one at a more expensive store. This one was about half the price, and shipping was practically free!We put the desk together in about 10 minutes. All you have to do is attach the legs with the bolts provided. It is very sturdy and nicely made. We've had it in our office for about two weeks, and so far no scratches or anything (and we use our mouse right on the desk without a mouse pad, as well as setting coffee cups, etc. directly on the desk). Honestly, it's perfect in almost every way.My only criticism of this desk is the size of the drawers. They are fairly long and wide, but are only 1" deep. So none of the drawer organizers I had from my old desk work with this one, and I need to go find new ones. The drawers are also not on runners, but I wasn't expecting that they would be.
This desk was extremely easy to assemble. Prior to purchasing, I was worried that my 6'2" fiancÚ wouldn't be able to use it, but the desk is actually larger than the image portrays. I agree with the others, that it is not as glossy as other Parsons type desks, but nothing some varnish wouldn't fix. I purchased the desk less than a month ago and under the stress of moving to a new place it did sustain a few chips in paint, but overall I would purchase this desk again.
I love this desk. It is very sturdy and very simple to put together. The color is true to the picture, a very bright white. The drawers slide pretty well. It looks just the the version at West Elm, but of course this one is made of wood. Very good buy for the price.
this is a great west elm parsons lookalike desk. extremely easy to assemble and a lot heavier than i anticipated. the only complaint i'd have is that it's not as glossy as it appears to be in the photo and it marks really easily. i use it as my sewing table and i placed a plastic mat down to prevent markings. i am loving the look for less!
What a great bang for your buck. Excellent construction, sturdy yet sleek. I'm using mine as a dressing table in my bedroom. If you have 10 minutes and a screwdriver you'll have a piece of furniture well worth the money you paid for it.
This is my first Overstock purchase and I'm satisfied (fast shipping, smart packaging, product true to photo). I've had my eye on this desk for the past 6 months... it was once sold out but I'm really happy to see it brought back. The construction was easy (just attach the 4 legs to the desk top), but the materials, not being solid real wood, made it a bit heavier than I expected.Overall, this is a great desk for the price, look, style and function. It's really close to the West Elm parsons desk, and I would say the only differences are totally minor (1. not as glossy finish; 2. about 1/4" shorter or less; and 3. the drawer depths are slightly less deep).I would definitely recommend it still since it's the same look for less than half the price. It looks great but I need to get over the fact that it's not as glossy!
This desk is great.t took only about 20 minutes to assemble. The wood is sturdy and thick. It is a great size for a child. I bought this for my 2nd grader and its perferct. Pretty durable glossy finish...looks exactly like the west elm desk, just wood, not laminate/melamine. Drawers are pretty shallow....useless except for pencils, etc. Overall, veryt good deal.
My desk arrived last night - shipping was quick and it came straight to my door on the 2nd floor of my building. It took me maybe 10 minutes to screw the legs into it, very easy to do with the provided allen wrench. It makes a great work desk for a computer, printer, etc. and doesn't take up too much space in my tiny apartment.
OK, I'm the first to admit that I am fussy.This desk looks fantastic. It is sturdy, has nice clean lines and is tall enough for a 6ft tall man to have his knees under the desk.It came very well packed and was easy to put to together.As previously stated, I am very fussy and I get this desk the full 5 stars! I love it! I am now kicking myself for not buying a second one for another room.
Thank you Overstock for bring this once SOLD OUT product back. I like so many others can't afford to spend upwards of $300+ for a simple clean desk. So I did some searching, and thanks to all the design blogs, found this! I put this desk together in 25 minutes, I would suggest having someone help you pick up and place in your office! HA! It was not easy to move by myself, AKWARD! LOLYou will love this desk, I know I DO!!!
I bough this desk about a year ago and it is still beautiful. It's enough space to have lots of medical books and a lamp, or just your laptop and music. I love the look of it!. The drawers a shallow, but they complement the look. It is sturdy and airy at the same time. By the way, it was very easy to put together.
I have been wanting a very similar desk from another store, but that desk was twice as much and I just couldn't bear to spend that much money. I have been waiting for this one to come back in stock for some time and once it did I jumped at the chance to purchase this desk for half of what the very similar one costs. Before it arrived I was a little worried that it would look like a very cheap version of the other one, but was extremely surprised once I put it together. First of all, putting it together was super simple, just attach the 4 legs and voila! The drawers were already assembled placed in their spot. The desk is beautiful and looks much more expensive than it really is. It really makes me whole room. The picture on this website does not do it justice, it much better looking in person. It is very sturdy and has a great amount of surface area to spread out projects etc. I Highly recommend it if you want great style at a super affordable price.
