  • Much nicer than anticipated

    i wasn't expecting this nice of a desk. very solid, well made. took 5 minutes to assemble. came in two boxes. highly recommend. only slight issue was the fastening screw to the drawer knob did not fit, wasn't long enough. i had one that fit by chance. otherwise, 10 out of 10.

  • A great piece of furniture!

    I have been looking for a solid wood writing desk for months and just couldn't bear to par Pottery Barn prices. This desk is a beautiful piece, is perfectly described, assembled easily and half the price of anything comparable. I couldn't be more pleased

  • This desk is worth it.

    This desk was very easy to put together. All you had to do was screw on the legs and knob for the drawer. It came with the all the tools, so once you open box you don't have leave to get any other tools. I didn't need any assistance and it was done in less than 15 mins. The dark brown color is very rich. The drawer slides with ease. Its a great desk for a small workspace and very simple, sleek and modern.

  • couldn't be more pleased

    I was pleased to receive this table and all the positive reviews were very helpful in making my decision. Easy to assemble, great quality and very beautiful and sturdy. This won't be my last furniture purchase from Overstock.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very good
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Extremely happy with the strength and workmanship of the wood table
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
  • Geat Student Desk

    This desk was easy to assemble. It is sturdy, fits our minimal modern style, is functional (love the drawer), and has stood up to our teenage son's abuse for over a year. That is impressive because he is pretty rough on, well, everything. It is a bargain!

  • Very nice desk!

    Beautiful and well made desk. It was easy to put together...even for someone like myself who is mechanically challenged. I am very happy with the quality of the piece- it is quite a lot heavier than I expected which speaks to the high quality. I saw similar but not as nice desks for sale at places like Pottery Barn and Cost Plus for three times as much.

  • pretty nice

    This desk came mostly pre-constructed which is great because this Vilas company is INFAMOUS for how difficult and imperfect their furniture is. The one bad part is that the screw they supply that attaches the knob to the drawer is actually too long so the knob is loose. I had to put a different screw to make it fit well.

  • Good looking, sturdy desk.

    Was completely happy with the desk, it is attractive in its simple design and fits in with other types of furnishings. It had a little dent in the corner of the top of the desk (probably shipping damage), and slight damage to the inside of the drawer. Both these things did not destroy the look or functionality of the desk and I kept it rather than returning it.

  • Classy desk

    The desk arrived on time and in two boxes: one for the desk and one for the legs, which are quite long and made completely of wood. No veneers here. The desk was easy to put together and much taller than I expected, but the perfect height for working. The joins in the wood are beautifully done and the desk itself is well constructed and beautiful. This is definitely heirloom material and will likely outlast me. Simply beautiful and quite serviceable.


    fixnwrtr from Florissant, CO, Dec 10, 2014

  • Just what I needed

    It assembled easily (no grumbles from my husband) and it is the quintessential writing desk for my purposes. Sturdy and a rich, deep color, straight lines and simple in my eclectic office decor.

what material is the top of the table - it doesn"t look the same as the rest of the desk. lucos on Jul 10, 2013

Answer This Question

Hi lucos, this table has the same finish throughout the table including the top. It may look like that due to lighting. We try to represent the colors of our products accurately, but unfortunately due to the difference in monitor colors we cannot guarantee that the color will match exactly what you see on your screen. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 11, 2013
It's the same. It also will be a little susceptible to scratches, but a clear desk blotter solved that issue. samanthasenseo on Feb 6, 2014
