    • Love this desk!

      It was important to me to find a desk that was solid wood, so this fit the bill. Love the mid-century modern styling. We had a bit of an issue with delivery, but Overstock got us taken care of!

      This desk top cracked in less than a year and the reply I received was "I'm so sorry but you're on your own." I've purchased a number of items from Overstock over the years. Never again. And I will tell anyone who asks.

    • Nice desk for the money!

      Mine desk came damaged. Looked like the *** man dropped it on its end. Iverstock quickly made it right and sent a brand new desk out. That desk had a defect in the drawer so my husband swapped it out with the first one. So far, so good. Looks great!

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • what material is the top of the table - it doesn"t look the same as the rest of the desk.

      • 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.

      • It's the same. It also will be a little susceptible to scratches, but a clear desk blotter solved that issue.
