I have a large master bedroom, and I wanted to put a desk in it because my husband likes to retreat there to work. But I didn't want it to look like we have an office in our bedroom. This sturdy desk was the perfect solution. It's small and has a great transitional style that works in our cottage style home. I use it as a nightstand/small bedroom desk. Slim and small but still offers the functionality of a desk/table when he needs it. The color is a deep chocolate with the wood grain coming through - definitely a nice wood. It's not a flat melamine coated piece. Very stylish and I can tell we will use it in various rooms for many years.. Great price for this piece!
This desk is just what I was looking for. I wanted to downsize to something smaller but that also had plenty of storage in the drawers. It comes almost fully assembled, all I had to do was screw the legs on which only took about 10 minutes. It also has a very rich espresso color that looks great.
I love this desk. I am sitting at the desk as I write this review. I love this desk. Fits so perfect in my bedroom. Just the right size for what I need. I can sit here and read, work on my lap top. A nice change from sitting at my home office desk. Just to sit and enjoy not working and in the comfort of my bedroom. The color is perfect with the other furniture. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

I like this desk for its look and its function-- in the past, when I have had larger desks, I've shoved things aside and cluttered the surface. With a space this size, not so. It fits perfectly in my small dorm room, and the top surface strikes a nice balance between letting you feel the grain of the wood and having a smooth, easy writing surface. My only complaints are the drawers, which don't slide on tracks and feel a bit flimsy, and the 40-pound support limit, which I can easily exceed with an iMac and a few books. I'm not too worried about it though-- the desk feels sturdy under much more weight than that. Assembly was quick, simple, and convinced me of how well-constructed the product really is.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Mine seems to have a bit more red in it, but that could be the light in my room.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality and sturdy, but the drawers feel a little flimsy.

It's an "okay desk," but with all the high reviews on Amazon and Overstock, I perhaps had built it up too much. It's a lot smaller/flimsier than expected. It's also not made of real wood (maybe the legs?). Assembly is easy, but it's a simple desk, what is there to assemble? It's made of a somewhat durable wood composite called Medium-density fibreboard (MDF). The color is not completely even, but it's one of the nicer qualities of it. From afar it looks okay (even nice) but on closer examination you can see the quality. As many reviewers have mentioned, the drawers are weak! It might as well have faux drawer covers. I would return this desk and try my luck on craigslist for a much higher-quality desk for similar or lower cost, but OVERSTOCK makes it impossible to return ANYTHING.
This desk is perfect for my laptop computer, a small notebook, pen holder, and coffee mug. Too small to hold too much clutter and big enough for my writing work. Style and finish are really good for the price. The two drawers are just the right size to hideaway a couple of things.
I recently retired and gave away my huge office bookcase/desk combo. I wanted a small but stury desk for my laptop and just general office stuff. This is perfect. I was very impressed with the quality and finish of the wood given the price! Simply to assemble, the two front drawers are big enough for all the stuff you need at hand. My biggest concern was that it would be too short to sit comfortably if I wanted to cross my legs. Turned out to be perfect height for me, about 25" clearance to the bottom of the drawers. Great value desk for a home office or nook.
First, the packaging: This desk came so lovingly packed in styrofoam, I felt as I was opening it that it was some object of great value. Yes, there was a lot of styrofoam dust but I kept my vacuum cleaner nearby and vacuumed as I worked. I appreciated the care that the manufacturer expended on behalf of this humble little desk. It made me feel that the same care had been expended during the manufacturing process.
Second, putting it together: I can barely scotch tape things together, even simple DIY projects are beyond me. This desk was so easy to put together, I did it completely on my own in less than 30 minutes. The hardest part of this project was carrying it up the stairs.
Third, the product: A nice basic simple unobtrusive desk. It's not high style but it does the job it needs to do and acts as a good canvas for stuff to be put on top of it (especially orchids). Really affordable and a very good value, especially with the free shipping.
Very happy with the whole experience of this.

does this desk have a cherry/red appearance in person? It seems that way from the photo - at least on my monitor it does.ryno6000 on Mar 23, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us ryno6000. No, there is not any cherry color to this item. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 24, 2014
I don't think it has much in the way of a cherry/red hue at all. It goes well next to my walnut cupboards.neen59 on Jun 21, 2014
Slight redness in bright lighting. In dim light it's brown. From afar definitely brown.Crystal on Oct 15, 2014
The description says black, but the pictures are more of a brown expresso color--which is more accurate?wisconsin22 on Jan 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us wisconsin22. This desk is espresso so it's a dark brown. We apologize for the confusion we might have caused. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 8, 2014
Definitely a good espresso. It goes well with my other espresso furniture. Definitely not black.ch8967 on Jan 22, 2014
Definitely not black. It's a deep brown.neen59 on Jun 21, 2014
This desk comes in 3 colors (white, black, espresso). You may be confusing it with the black one. The color of this particular product is brown (with red undertones in bright light) but from afar definitely brown.Crystal on Oct 15, 2014
Hello sdbbjb, We apologize for the delay in answering your question. We can now confirm that this item does not have metal glides. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 11, 2013
No metal glides. That is the one negative about this piece; however, I intend to be careful with it.cin303 on Aug 5, 2013
No, but the drawers still move in and out smoothly.ch8967 on Nov 12, 2013
The glide is plastic, and while it worked well when it worked, mine has snapped and no glue will hold it together (i've tried crazy glue, gorilla glue, etc). I've inquired about obtaining a replacement plastic hook for the glide system, awaiting response.clg8 on Jan 12, 2014
