I love this desk! It is more solid than I was expecting, seems to be made of all solid wood. To put it together all I had to do was screw on the 4 legs using the provided materials, The two drawers are larger than I thought also, and I can fit a few notebooks and other items in each. The finish is nice, painted wood. It doesn't have a reflective, glossy surface like some are hoping for, but it looks nice and I like it. I might put a clear coat over the desk surface to protect from stains, but otherwise it is so perfect!!
Even though the box was pretty beat up when it arrived, I was very pleased with the condition of the desk. The desk was very easy to put together and is very well made. It has plenty of room for my daughter to do her homework etc...It does mark easily, so I put some clear contact paper down on it to help.
I just got this desk and it is quite sturdy. I originally wanted the one from West elm, but couldn't spend that much for such a simple white desk. As for the finish...it's more of a satin finish and I would recommend getting a glass top for added protection. The drawers slide easily and provide enough storage. The price was right and I am very pleased with my purchase.
I read a lot of the reviews for this desk before purchase and was expecting a dull white but this desk was lovely as is when unwrapped. The drawers are perfect for pens, pencils, stationary and tape. I actually painted my desk bright pink and it looks incredible, but had i wanted white I would have been more than happy with the original finish. Anyone looking for a parsons desk will be happy with this.
I LOVE these desks. Actaully bought two based on another review I read. The are real wood! not veneer. I like them even better than the more expensive ***** table. They were a breeze to assemble and the packing was great. I purchased two...one for my computer and the other for general use. I have no problem with the small drawers. they fit scotch tape, pencils, check book, glasses case, stapler, paper..... I was really surprised by the quality and asthetic. I may get a very thin piece of glass for the top just to preserve the finish. The white is white white! The finish is very smooth and satiny. It is amazing in a pre-fab age to have a desk made of real wood. honestly!
My 16 year old daughter put it together herself. She wanted a simple desk with clean lines for her new room. It fits the bill perfectly. The only thing she would change, if she could, is that the drawers are not on rollers, so they are not as smooth as she thought they would be, but she doesn't plan on using them much. The desk is very attractive in her room and is heavier than expected, so it will hopefully last a long time.
I was looking at the West Elm Parsons desk for a while until I saw this one on Overstock. I love it. So perfect and easy to put together. I wish it was a little shinier like the West Elm one but it is fabulous nonetheless. I am so happy with all of my Overstock purchases!
This desk is very well constructed. It was easy to put together and it is very sturdy. I am very pleased with the quality of the desk and the price was excellent. I would def recommend this product to anyone thinking about buying it. There are similar desk out there but not at this price point!
So far we are very happy with this product. I am always wary of products that need assembly, but this was extremely easy to put together. The drawers were already assembled, so I just needed to attach the legs. The desk is a really nice size for a student - plenty of surface area for a computer, homework, etc. So far no nicks or scratches, but we will see with time.
Purchased this desk for home use. Great looking and simple to put together. Makes a great and roomy work suface for my laptop, lamp and accessories. Also purchased a SAFCO printer stand for my HP which fits neatly on the floor under the desk.
