I am very pleased with this desk. I was a little apprehensive at first because of the size, the secretary style and because it is hard to tell the exact color online. The size is actually listed incorrectly. This desk is not 67 inches high. It is only 50 inches high which I was happy about. The style is different for me. I have never had a secretary style desk before. When the door/desk is open, it measures 42 iches from the back to where you are seated in front. Luckily we have an open area for the desk. If you have a small area it may not work for you. It took a little getting used to, and we make an effort not to lean on it ( just in case) but after a few days we love it. It makes for better posture as well. The color is beautiful. We were most apprehensive about that but It matches perfectly to our entertainment center that we were trying to match from the picture online. It's listed as dark walnut. It can even be called espresso. The assembly took my husband ( alone.... because I hate that kind of thing ) about 2 1/2 -3 hours. It was worth it. It is such a gorgeous piece of furniture and so sturdy. I looked in many stores and online for days before purchasing this item. Anything comparable to this piece cost more than double the price and shipping was ridiculous. I am extremely pleased and would recommend this piece.
