This is a great desk. I love the color and look in our living room. The directions are very user friendly; however it did take me about four hours to put is together. At one point you will need another person to help you push it together. Make sure you don't let any little ones pick up the pieces as there is just one extra of each screw and wood peices. You will only need a phillips screwdriver and a mallot to hammer a little to not ruin the wood. The last step will be to put the top of the desk on and there are alot of screws that have to line up. We did it one line at a time using a hammer to push them into place. Also there are little bolt things that you turn to lock in...pay attention to where the arrow is so you know the hole is open so you are not trying to push a screw into a closed bolt. Hope this is helpful. It is a great desk and VERY pretty. Also the surface does not scratch easily and is very easy to wipe clean. Make sure you measure your area as this desk is a little bigger than I thought it would be from the picture.
beautiful,solid desk - looks much more expensive than it was. It looks perfect in my room, my only complaint was they sent us the wrong size drawer inserts so we couldn't complete the desk until they recent the parts again.

The desk came in two heavy packing boxes and took a few hours to assemble. While all of the pieces were well labeled, the assembly instructions left a little to be desired. The overall quality of this item was good, and well worth the price paid.
I love this desk. I am proud to have it in my office. It was exactly the size I needed. Desk top 60 inches by 30 inches. It is sturdy and makes very nice look in an office designed for a female. I would have appreciated a little decoration on the front of the desk where guests to my office sit. Sitting behind this desk the drawers and pulls are nice. My husband and I have lots of experience assembling furniture, and I found this very easy to understand and to do. Buy it is my recommendation. You won't be sorry.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Desk quality was great except for the drawer bottoms. It turn out to be exactly like to picture, and assembly was normal for a piece of furniture as nice and heavy as this one is.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfectly accurate.
The material and quality are great, better than expected. It took me about 6 hours to assemble, so be ready for that. It was way easier to put together than comparable Ikea projects I've done, since all the parts are labelled.
The desk arrived in 2 large boxes. My husband built it with no problems. It's pretty big, so make sure you measure. The top piece corner was cracked and overstock sent a replacement piece right away. Great looking piece, would buy again.
I have been wanting to create a workspace that inspires me and when I saw this desk, I knew it was the one! It was very simple to put together (I did it mostly by myself... my hubby helped with some of the big pieces) and it looks GORGEOUS, professional, stylish and expensive. I love the large desk top, so I have room for all of my items and the 5 drawers are great for storage. Highly recommend!
I needed a large attractive sewing table for my bedroom, this was the perfect desk, very large and well priced. The assembly was overwhelming at first, since there were so many pieces, but it soon went together easily following excellent directions. The top is very heavy and I needed help carrying it upstairs and placing it on the desk base. I assembled it myself and I am 78 years old, so anyone could do it, My daughter did help with crawling under and finishing the assembly for me. I wanted a chair to match the desk that would change heights. At overstock I found the Office Star Delux White Wooden Bankers Chair that matches the desk perfectly and very well priced. I am very pleased with Overstock's quality, pricing and service.
****** THE POSITIVES:
I purchased this desk because of the size; storage; and style, and it did not disappoint! The desk itself is absolutely beautiful! I also love the size. For someone who has a desk top or even a laptop, this will be perfect! You can fit your computer, multiple papers, binders, and probably even a lamp on it all at the same time. Another good thing about this desk is the fact that it has five drawers (varying in size) so that you can better organize your things.
****** THE NEGATIVES:
If you look at the picture you can see that there is stain on the edges of the desk, the stain of my desk was sloppy at places (some of the stain was on more than the edges) but, for me, wasn't bad enough to return. Also, on one corner of the desk it looks like there were a few stain covered finger prints (they were pretty faint), that really bothered me but they weren't that noticeable and they were on the corner closet to the wall so I doubt someone would notice it. Lastly, the wood panels that were the bottom of the drawers weren't painted that well on most of them, however that can be fixed with drawer liners!
I would defiantly recommend this desk to anyone! For me the size and storage is key and it receives a 5/5 on both of those! I think that the negatives out weigh the positives and maybe (hopefully) I was the only one to encounter the problems stated above! Great price to especially if combined with a promo code!

Yes the back of the desk is finished so that you wouldn't have to have it against the wall if you didn't want to. By the way, all of the wood is covered by paint.try13 on Nov 10, 2013
My question is about MDF. I see in one review it's mentioned that the drawer is made by MDF. Again, is this made by some rubberwood, some MDF? What's the top of the desk made of? Solid wood (as one piece, not particles, not wood solid), veneer on MDF, or some other material? Thanks.telomere1 on Oct 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Hi hwdougherty, yes, the back of this desk is finished. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!overstockcustomercare1 on May 22, 2013
Both "wood" and "other" are listed under the materials section of the product details. This leads me to believe that there may be some MDF or furniture board as materials along with the rubberwood. Is the desk completely made of rubberwood? Can you please clear up the confusion? Thank you.kzip on Jan 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Rubberwood is considered a hardwood and is part of the maple family. It is very durable and rarely warps or cracks. It is hard to scratch with everyday things, such as kitchen utensils, fingernails, or pens and pencils.
