The mahogony work station is very sturdy and looks nice in my home office. The whole set is big (measures approximately 103'' X 71''). The setup was easy though the parts were heavy. (I am a 5'1'' tall woman. I did most assembly and my boyfriend helped with carrying things around). One merit of the workstation is its flexibility. You can put it together based on your own need: the bridge can go the opposite side and the cabinet can be put anywhere beneath. It's a real steal. One of the best deals from overstock.com!
Overall the product is an excellent price for the money and of good quality. Negatives: The instructions were extremely poor and misleading. Many holes were undrilled in the hutch and bow front desk. Took over 10 hours to build. The mahogany color is more of a burgundy color and rich. Not like the color in the overstock.com picture. I would still recommend this product but wasn't happy that it took so long to build and cost me over $500 in labor.

- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Many holes were undrilled on the bow desk and hutch. Came with a few nicks where the laminate had chipped off.
I had never purchased furniture online before and or from Overstock. However; after comparison shopping for over a year, I found Overstock had the best price. Locally, a station with similar quality/size sells for $2500.00 or more. The station arrived within a week and took 3.5 hours to assemble. Once it was set up, I was amazed at the quality and workmanship least to mention it is simply beautiful!!!! Key points I was looking for was quality/workmanship and Customer Service. I was very pleased with all and can't say enough "Good" about Overstock. You don't find "online" stores that care about their customers like Overstock does! I have since purchased several other items from Overstock and have not once been disappointed. Thank You Overstock...Keep up the good work!
I have been using this furniture for about 4 months now and have no complaints. I receive many compliments and it provides a good bit of workspace and leg room. The color is excellent and professional looking, and the glossy finish is attractive. My brother and nephew put it together, and it took them about 4 hours. They did not have any problems with the screws as others have commented, but definitely agree that it requires two to set-up properly. I am very pleased and would recommend to anyone. I would love to have matching bookshelves but have not been able to find any.
Beautiful workstation!!!! Great Value for the price, excellent quality, solid workmanship. Looks very professional.Requires 2 people to put together because pieces are very heavy.I was very impressed with speed of delivery, I got my desk within a week of ordering it.
This desk unit was purchased for my small business along with a second desk only. My husband and I were able to put both desk and credenza/hutch together in about 5 hours. The instructions are simple and the only thing that took extra time were the hinges on the doors of the hutch. I think the desks are very rich and beautiful, well constructed, easy to assemble, and well worth the price. I know I could have put it together by myself until lifting the hutch up onto the credenza. This is a very heavy piece of furniture. They were delivered in a reasonable amount of time, approx. 1 week. I only have one thing I did not take into consideration when I made my choice: they do not have drawers in the desk unit. I was able to remedy this by ordering under desk 3 drawer file cabinets from overstock. I am very happy with my purchases.
Delivery charges and physical delivery of product was great, no issues and delivered in 2 days as web site stated. Product was a little darker than I expected, but for the value compared to other desks out there, its fine. Quality is top notch, heavy though, need 2 people to install. Hutch is not designed to be securely attached to desk. Hutch slid off when moving desk against wall, which caused 1 screw to rip out part of the wood. Clued ripped piece back in place and used left over attachement brackets to attach Hutch to desktop. Plenty of space to work on and spread out paperwork and 2 computers. Highly recommend this desk, but either have someone else assemble it or you will need 2 people to assemble it and move it around; recommend attaching hutch to desktop to avoid hutch sliding off desktop. Now I need to buy a 2 file drawer for the other side of the desk.
Ok, you want to know the truth? There is no way an average built woman can assemble this whole thing herself. I can lift pretty heavy things, but you have to be realistic: at some point, sooner or later, you will need an extra pair of hands. Especially if you don't want to scratch or damage anything.This station looks great for the amount of money paid. You won't find a better value! It doesn't mean that it is flawless though: the finish on our hatch is a little bit different than on our main desk - it definitely looks a little bit dull and has some weird subtle smudges, which are impossible to remove ( I tried everything starting from plain water & ending with Method all purpose cleaner) If you have OCD, it will drive you crazy :) But maybe we just got unlucky and everybody else didn't have that problem w smudges on a hutch, which is not a huge deal after all.The real problem we experienced was low quality cam connector screws - every 2d one would break & my husband was handling them as if they were made from glass. At the end, Overstock promptly sent us a replacement from their warehouse - a bunch of new cam connectors.Our friends who see this workstation always compliment on how great it looks, so I would recommend it in a heartbeat. You just have to realize that for that amount of $$ you are likely to have some minor problems, but hopefully Overstock will help to resolve them.
This is a beautiful professional executive desk for anyone who has the space for a home office or an actual office. The only thing I would say is that it was very hard to assemble but thankfully I got the help of others. The finished assembled product looked amazing and elegant. My husband loves his new home office! This was worth the money.
Its really worth buying it as office furniture, specially when you compare it with other cheap product in stores. It has strong surface that keeps this furniture brand new even after several years. Only points need to make sure that the front desk is really wide so when you order check all dimensions of room and this product. second all parts are really heavy so you cant move easily once you assemble and requires at least two strong people !!! Overall great purchase for the people who work from home / who spend decent amount of time at home office !!!
The desk is very good. Large, solid. It will take a while to put it together if you are doing it alone. I paid somebody**, and it took him 5 hours. Unfortunately, the piece they shipped me had some dings in the hutch. I am talking to customer care abut replacing the hutch.
I love this desk, it is big! Sturdy and good quality. The shipping was really fast (I got it in a couple of days) and it wasn't that hard to assemble. It took my husband (with some help from me at times) about 5 hours to assemble. The instructions were a little tricky but not overly difficult. I love this desk and will probably buy another one for my office at work!
I ordered three for work. Was concerned how fast they would arrive, but they came within a week. Nice quality and the best value I have seen for under a thousand. Going to order two more this month.
