This desk and hutch piece was purchased for the reception area of my law firm. It is an attractive and sturdy piece that meets the requirement I had without feeling too stuffy. The lines are very clean and the color is a nice cherry. It is bigger than I expected it to be; however, that was my error. I am very satisfied with this piece and expect that I will have it for years to come.

This is probably an ok purchase for a home office. I definitely would not recommend it for a commercial office setting. The desktops are thin and wobble with any pressure or weight. I suspect they will sag pretty badly within a year or so. Other office furniture I have purchased is about 50% thicker. When I read the description, I was fooled by the "commercial finish" reference, and the "1" thick top. I would definitely recommend spending an extra couple hundred dollars to get a better quality product. For those of you who read reviews and always attribute the problems to idiots who cannot put something together correctly, I have more than 15 years experience in construction, ranging from furniture to houses. The finish is closer to red and black, than mahogany. The picture online is not even close. The desk is much darker. Also, mine came without the pedestal/credenza - it wasn't within the box labeled "Hutch" much to my dismay. The instructions are aweful. It wasn't a problem for me, but for someone who has never put together box furniture, it may be frustrating.

The desk is huge and heavy but it's exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a something that would make an empty room look like an office and this did the trick. People always compliment us on it and think it's made of real wood. The surface does tend to show fingerprints which can be annoying but it cleans easily with Windex. And the set arrived with a broken drawer but overstock quickly sent a second set. More drawer space would be nice but we've added shelves under the desk to get the storage we want.
First the carrier didn't contact me to let me know when they were coming and later tried to hold desk as a ransom for me to pay them daily dock fees. Overstock did correct this but it delayed delivery by an additional week. When i got the desk it came in three boxes and the one box had broken corners and scratches on all the pieces. I had to wait another month for the missing pieces to come and when they did the main top piece was again badly scratch, at this point I decided to just keep it since I couldn't wait another month. Also with this last ship, one of the other pieces was miss-drilled and unusable. Luckily I stilll had the old damaged pieces and just used that one. Lastly, the assembly instructions are a bit difficult to figure out, this desk IS NOT the color in the picture, it is a real dark cherry color which doesn't go with anything in my home office, and the desk does not include a pull out keyboard shelf, you can see by the drill holes underneath that it is supposed to but I guess that's why they put it on overstock. Very dissappointed.
Nice looking, easy to assemble-good price for the quality. Only displeased with the delivery service-they never called about delivery and left scratches on walls .
- Did the product fit true to size? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? Quality is good-as good or better than things seen in office supply stores
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? totally free of defect
Honestly, I am not an online fun---really is not comfortable to buy something only by seeing from the photos. Only a few try of online shopping. This is my 1st time to buy such a big furniture online, plus my friend referenced the overstock a very good place to shop at. Overstock did give me a really really good online shopping experience. When the huge package arrived, there was some tear on the box. We were really unhappy from beginning... but nothing we could do with the delivery guys. Later we contacted with overstock service, the phone operator is such wonderful guy, he let us just go head assemble the furniture, and found out all other defects inside. After we assembled the whole pieces, total found 2 scratched piece. The overstock promised to replace them at one time. They resent the pieces to us very quickly in a few days without any concern and delay. Almost forget to say this product, this furniture is really big, and luckily my office room is big enough to fit it. The service from them are excellent!, now I start to shopping with them...
Ordered desk 6/10, it shipped 6/11, and arrived 6/15 (we did have to pick up the 5 boxes....719 pounds....from the freight company as they could not get an 18 wheeler truck into our subdivision). We were able to put the desk & credenza together in 2 hours. I'm sure it will take longer for the hutch with the doors, we will work on that tonight! As mentioned in other reviews the desk is darker than the photo. It is a deep mahogany finish with a redish tint. Very heavy, very sturdy desk. The bridge can go on either side of the desk, and the fully assembled drawer unit can be placed under the desk or credenza where ever you would like it. The desk is a good height for using the keyboard and has nice soft, comfortable edges,. Each piece has separte adjustable 'feet' so that the edges of the desk are not smashing down into the carpet. It does not have any under-the-desk drawers or keyboard pull-out. This desk is huge! Assembled, it is approximately 9 feet by 6 feet. The look & quality would be suitable for a small business or a large home office. I do wish they offered another separate drawer unit that matched, but I think I might be able to find something that can be hidden under the desk portion that would be close in color, or black.
I was looking for a desk with a lot of room to spread out! This fits the bill. It is darker than the picture but the color is rich and I have gotten many compliments. It was easy to assemble and seems well built. I did add an additional 3 drawer Boss pedistal that I had to purchase from a different distributor but it was a great addition and matched perfect. If you're on the fence about ordering this desk and you have the room, go for it!
I purchased the furniture on a Saturday and the delivery company called three days to schedule prompt delivery. The delivery company was clean and arrived when promised. The item arrives in 4 oversized rectangular boxes with an additional box that contains the file cabinet which is pre-assembled. The work station is solid and is slightly darker than the picture. It took about 4 hours to assemble with my teenage son. If I had additional adult help, the assemble time would be far less. My item had some nicks and scratches that I could live with. Customer service was willing to replace the damaged pieces which was not worth waiting for and re-assembly. Some off the directions provided were not as descriptive or directional as needed. That was difference between 4 or 5 stars. The work station can be assembled for left or right handed individuals. Remember the desk is an open design that doesn't contain ANY drawers. I personally like the design because it allows me to put other office items under the desk. Remember this requires two people to assemble because of the weight of the pieces. Measure your office/space because this unit is large. I am very happy that I purchased this product. People have commented that this piece is impressive.
Very happy with this desk! So much work space! Make sure you measure your room before ordering, because this desk is huge! I wish it had more drawers, but filing cabinets fit right underneath it. I put two chairs at the bow front, where my children sit and do their homework and visit me while I am working. Great desk for the money!
I was very apprehensive to buy this item because of the risk/cost involved. However, as has been the case with 95% of all items I have purchased from Overstock, the purchase was another pleasant surprise. It looks really, really nice - just like in the photo - and was not bad to put together, although two people are clearly required due to the sheer size/mass of some of the parts. Care mist be taken in use because, as with all composition wood/laminate products, things like hinges can pull out of their places and nicks can occur if abuse happens, but with common sense care, it makes an impressive office. I would recommend using a chair with no metal arms or back which could make contact with the desk sufaces and cause nicks or chips.
Desk arrived in perfect condition in about half the time advertised. Assembly was long and instructions were hard to understand.Two people took about 4 hours. I've put together other furniture simular to this before so that was a big help. The desk is huge so double check your space and measurements twice. For such a big desk there are on one set of very small draws.
Dissatisfied: ¿ Initial shipment did not include the purchased Hutch. ¿ Communication and response with Overstock was very good. ¿ The Hutch was finally delivered, however the box and contents were damaged. Consequently, delivery was refused and the Hutch sent back. ¿ The Hutch was re-delivered; however the box was damaged, but accepted. Even though the box was damaged, the Hutch was not damaged.
