    • Poor quality, service and product

      Where to begin... This unit arrives in 3 VERY heavy boxes, one of which was too heavy for two grown men to maneuver. And it is shipped freight, which means they will drop it off on the curb; the rest is up to you. When I chatted with OverStock sales, they told me that it would be delivered white glove, but this proved not to be true. Upgrading was apparently not an option. This was a very difficult situation to work through. Once I got the item open, I continued to be dissapointed. This is very clearly particle board, and not of any great quality. The finish was poor at best, with gauges in the "veneer" and terrible seams at the edges. To put it plainly, the appearance was very unattractive. The assembly process is not overly complicated, but holes did not line up. The drawers are well out of alignment and the lock mechanism is a joke. Most unfortunately, I had the particle board fail at two different locations, in spite of very careful assembly. The plain fact is that the unit is too big to return. It is together and will hold my computer up off of the floor. I will not be using the drawers at all, and look forward to buying or building something in a few years. And I will be avoiding any future Overstock purchases as well.

    • Decent Value

      The table tops are nice. Wasn't too hard to assemble. The finish on the rest of pieces is not very good even by MDF standards. The paper has rough edges around corners that you would expect from a $20 bookshelf from Walmart but not at this price. The package did arrive with a dented corner that has damaged the corner of one of the pieces.

    • Best Office Table I have seen

      Lookwise it is great. All of my guests asked me whats the brand and model number of the Desk. Pros - Ample Storage space, Locked Drawer space. U shaped desk. Perfect for home office. Best in its class. Cons - Needs atleast 4 hours professional assembly. Comes in 3 Boxes which weighs more than 400 lbs. So its little tricky to move unless u open each box and move parts separately.

    • Very pleased

      Nice piece of furniture. Definitely not a one man job assembling it. Took a good six hours to assemble it. End result is nice high quality desk though. Solid. Nice looking.

    • Desk is great, exactly as shown on screen

      For the price, this desk is awesome. After ordering received in less than a week. My husband and I put together over a weekend with not much troubles. Perfect size for our room. The only reason for not giving it an excellant, the wood does show very little bare wood along edges but nothing that can't be touched up. We were short a couple CA-99 plugs, these cover the screw holes, went on Bestar website to order, had them within a week and no charge.

    • Who knew....

      I began looking for desks as we were redoing our home office. We have a dedicated office, double door entrance, and it is nearly 10x10. Not a huge room, but because it is a designated office and not sharing space for anything else, I wanted to put a large desk in there. I always go to first...and I used to say, "if you can buy it at Costco, you can't get it anywhere else for less." I was wrong. I really loved the two tone color of this desk. Because I have a tray ceiling with ceiling fan that is made out of honey oak, in addition to honey oak floors, the light colored surface on this desk was just what I wanted. I first saw this on Costco's website, but it was called "Merrick." I found that odd because when I started searching online, I kept on seeing "Manhattan" as the name of this model. I called the manufacturer and was very pleased with her knowledge. She confirmed that Costco was selling the "Manhattan" and that they often buy lots of items and rename them, which they did in this case. Okay, so I knew that it was the same--now I just had to start doing some price comparison. Costco sold the desk for $***. Even though it was free shipping, there was tax. Bottom line, I got the same desk from Overstock for over $*** less than if I had purchased it at Costco. It arrived about 7-10 days from the day I ordered it. They called our house and set up a time/date that my husband would be home for the shipment. I already knew it was over 400 pounds and that it would be in the garage and I would probably build it slowly...piece by piece. Well, it was built in about a day and a half. I enjoyed putting it together, although my kitty-cat kept on trying to sneak pieces out of the room! Sneaky girl. Anyway, every time the instruction indicated two people, I would call my husband up and he would help me do whatever step I was on...and if it shows two people--trust me, YOU NEED two people, I don't care how strong and/or coordinated you may think you are....that's not relevant. There was a small hiccup near the end. Because there are a few options for the "bridge," there were no holes drilled for the support beam that connects to either side of the desk. So other than husband having to drill a few holes on either side for that, it was super easy to assembly. I did buy the pencil drawer that goes under the desk. I'm so glad I did....I ended up finding it on Office Depot for half the cost on Bestar's website. I found a lot of drawers that would fit that were 1" deep--but I really wanted the 2" deep drawer and it is perfect. There was a slight defect in one of the doors (#61)...almost as if water had gotten to it awhile back and the compressed wood was starting to separate. After I was finished, I contacted Bestar and they shipped out one immediately for no cost. Also, the area underneath the desk is HUGE. I have a little stand that I used to have my printer on under there. It fits PERFECT in the corner and you can't even see it and it is so far away from your legs you never bump into it (big area under there!). I have one of those metal in baskets that have about six slots and I have my extra ink cartridges, envelopes, a few cords for various devices. One thing to mention while you are building your desk. BE CAREFUL with the pieces. I don't know exactly what this is made out of but it does scratch. You have to be mindful of this and only set it down on blankets and such, but it will scratch. Why the company doesn't send a crayon stick with the desk is beyond me, but I asked for one when I requested the replacement door. Oddly enough, there must be a shortage because I got a crayon about the size of 1/6 of a regular sized crayon! But it was all I needed so I guess they know what they are doing. I am so glad I took a chance and ordered this desk....I absolutely love it and I couldn't imagine anything else in my office. Dawn

    • Recommend to get

      Beautiful desk & cabinetry. It is also very sturdy. Needed 2 people to put together and took several hours, but once finished, it was worth it.

    • 3D jigsaw puzzle

      If you love a challenge and have all day to put a 3D jigsaw puzzle together, this is the desk for you! It arrived in three enormous boxes with over 80 pieces, not including drawer guides, handles and hardware, all which had to be assembled. Two people who are both handy and have put many pieces of furniture together worked for an entire day to get this desk put together. Had the quality been better or the price much lower, it would be justified. The completed desk looks nice, but only has three drawers, one of them a filing drawer, and shelves in cabinets are not adjustable, so it is not the most functional either.

    Questions & Answers

    Get your product questions answered right here.
    • Can the desk be used without attaching the hutch? If so, would any holes show on top surface?

      • Hello jkukovica, to attach this you will lay it on top of the desk, if you do not put it on the desk there should be no visible holes. I hope this helps, have a good day!

    • The product details says "Assembly: Assembled", but the details says "Assembly required" and "Ships in 3 boxes". Is it assembled or not? How much assembly is required? What is the estimated time to assemble? Are each of the pieces (hutch, peninsula, and bridge) already assembled and just have to be connected together or do each of the pieces need to be assembled and also connected together?

      • Hello drjill1, this workstation makes any office feel complete! All of the pieces need to be assembled and the estimated assembly time is approximately 8 hours. I hope this information helps. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • How deep is the Hutch? I need to store binders in there.

      • Hello macheek, the hutch is 23 inches deep, so you will definitely be able to fit binders in it. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Can you please let me know the height from the floor to the top of the desk? What is the exact depth of the desk?

      • The height under the desk is 29 inches. The depth of the desk is 29.5 inches.

    • Is this unit available for the other side? (opening to the left)

    • Can cables and wires be hidden from outside view?

    • When someone asked the width you just repeated the dimensions given. It's impossible to tell from the picture which is the 88.4" part and which is the 71" part. Please tell me the width of the part with the hutch -- is that the 88.4" side (so the hutch is that width as well) or is that the 71" side? Thanks.

    • Is the hutch self supporting without the center shelf (with the 3 baskets on shelf in the picture)? I would like to place my iMac in that space without the shelf. What is the dimension of the cutout in the hutch?

      Have an Answer? Be the first to answer this question!
    • Are there shelves in the hutch? How many? Guessing one shelf in each side cabinet.

    • I have a large room and need more space than this can provide. Would it work 2 get 2 units and out them together?

    • Can the back desk/hutch be used by itself without the single level "L" portion of the desk?

      • There are several ways to set it up. 1.Bow Desk standing alone with the l-desk made from the the bridge & credenza (an extra leg is provided). 2.The u shape is also an option. 3.Bow front desk alone + credenza & hutch set up. 4.Bow front desk + Bridge (and return leg) that make an L- desk + credenza & hutch setup in the back. The piercing are all there to make the setup left or right assembly on all the 4 configurations.

    • I only see 3 drawers in the picture, how many drawers are in in the main desk, the front portion? not where the keyboard is, or where the hutch portion is, but in the main desk. and are they lockable?

      • There are 2 utility drawers and 1 file drawer to accommodate letter/legal size documents. There is one lock and it secures the 2 bottom drawers (1 utility and the file drawer), the top utility stays “un-secure”.
