I was very nervous buying this desk as I hate buying things without seeing and feeling them in person first. I had a different desk from Pottery Barn and although it was nice, it was too big for my space and I thought it looked too masculine for what I was trying to achieve. This desk has the rustic artisan appeal, but is not too much wood, which I felt gave it a bit of a feminine flair. It goes nicely with my leather and metal desk chair that I found at Homegoods, my natural jute rug underneath it, and my hollowed tree stump garbage pail. It's the perfect size and I love the shelves for extra storage. I also love that it doesn't have a drawer for a keyboard because it would just collect junk anyway. I was so impressed when I opened the box, seeing that the wood is heavy and weathered, I was so excited to put it together, I didn't wait for my husband to come help me. It was easy to assemble, I did it myself in about a half hour, and although I'm usually pretty good with figuring things out, I'm certainly no Handy Manny. It really makes the look of the space! If you like the rustic/artisan look, but are concerned about quality, style, and/or durability, go for it! I don't think you'll find anything this great at a better price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate - and my monitor is callibrated. The color of the wood is just like in the photo of the desk top. People may think it looks lighter in the other images because of the lighting used to take the photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality, sturdy, rustic, artisan, simple, solid, heavy, incredible.

I typically don't buy furniture without seeing it first, but took a chance on this piece. I was thrilled when it arrived. It is everything I hoped and was less expensive than some comparable pieces I was looking at from some of the big named retail furniture stores which charge for delivery or shipping. You will not be disappointed with this piece!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Little darker than picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality, real wood construction.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The metal pieces look closer to back, was expecting a more silver color.
My husband says it was easy to put together. I love the look - very industrial artsy looking. And the open shelves are great for displaying small baskets or pottery. The desk is quite large, but not oversized. The wood is all fairly smooth and even with only one small flaw detected that is barely noticeable. Solid, great looking piece of furniture that looks great in my living room which I have converted to more of an office area with interesting chairs and artwork.

This is a nice piece overall~ It's very easy to set up, spacious, and looks very stylish; rustic but modern. If you want to add some comtemporary rustic feeling into your home office/bedroom, I think this desk would be the Right choice. It won't go wrong.
Some helpful tips: 1. the color of the wood actually is darker than the pic shows: What I mean here is the wood has redish brown tone in it. It's Not "Light brown" or "Tan" in the 1st pic! So If you'd like any light brown, greyish desk there, be aware of it ahead ! 2. The top surface kinda feels somehow "Rough". It has natual wooden lines in it. I understand that is how these rustic tables have been designed, so I don't really mind it. BUT for some ppl who like desks with very smooth surface, it MIGHT not the choice for you guys.
I like this item a lot, and hopefully my shopping experience will be a useful guide for those who are considering this piece~
Very nice desk. Came shipped via UPS at 88lbs in a flat box. Assembly took about an hour and only required an hex key (included). The wood is darker than appears on the photo and I was pleased about that as it makes a nice compliment to the room, Overall exactly what I was looking for.
I was nervous about buying this desk without first seeing it in person but have no regrets! The desk was delivered promptly and without issues--it included all of its parts and arrives undamaged. It was relatively easy to put together, although the holes of the desk frame and the shelves did not quite line up and I needed the assistance of my roommate when screwing in the shelves--essentially she had to push the frame in while I pulled the wood shelves out and only then did the holes align.
Now that the desk is all set up I am very pleased. The quality is excellent. As some other reviewers mentioned the top of the desk is rough--it does not catch on fabric but it does have ridges--I anticipate needing to use a writing pad and mouse pad with this desk. It may be worth mentioning that the desk is also very high--I raised my desk chair and arm rests as high as they will go and they still do not reach over the desktop, but align with it. This would not be an issue for most but I have carpal tunnel and need to have specific posture and wrist placement when typing and this may be an issue that I have to solve personally and that others with similar issues may want to consider either when purchasing the desk itself or a chair to go with it.
Ultimately, it is very stylish and of great quality for the price.
Bought this table for the extra bedroom for crafts, sewing and homework but I might just need to bring into my office because it is great.
Just enough contemporary rustic to match our eclectic home. Heavy, sturdy and a snap to put together - took my 15 year old daughter and I 20 minutes to put together. I had to empty the box of all the pieces on the porch - too heavy to carry upstairs in the box - but that is not a complaint - we love the table!
I really love the look of this desk with its rustic tabletop and more industrial legs. I wanted something with wood boards or planks, and the tabletop has just that. I also liked the size of the table, since I need space for books to be open for reference while I'm writing on my computer. So many desks sold here are smaller. It was easy to assemble. I did it on my own in about 45 minutes to an hour. I am pleased with this desk would highly recommend it if this is your style.
Can I fit a Computer Tower on one side of the desk, if I don't put in the middle shelf?rsladeasu on Sep 5, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

What is the width at the floor? Top looks like 60" but wondering if floor width requirements are less (ie. legs offset).whit1907 on Nov 9, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello whit1907, The 60 inch dimension will be the entire length of the desk. There is about 1 to 1.5 inches overhang of the desktop all the way around. The width at the bottom should be about 54 to 56 inches. Thank you for checking with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 12, 2013
