  • Who knew....
    Verified Purchase
    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    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 Costco.com 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

    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    Been using this furniture for about a month now. My spare bedroom is multi-purposed, so I set up the unit as an L shaped desk and a stand alone desk. I use the collaboration desk for my primary desk, a purpose it excels at due to the extra depth of the desktop. With a 28" wide-format monitor and the keyboard tray attached, there is plenty of room for manuals, binders and legal pads. The L shaped desk serves as the desk for my personal computer. and I use the surface under the hutch to house a color laser printer, and use the hutch for typical office supply storage. Very pleased with the way it works for me, but there are two pretty big cons that detract from this being an excellent purchase: 1). The drawers under the hutch are complete crap, with only about 3" of storage height in the top two. 2). The drawers also do not line up, and make it obvious that this isn't a quality product. The doors on the hutch are similar, but at least they can be adjusted, and made to hang in a fairly uniform manner. I would recommend buying the unit especially if you can avoid getting the filing cabinet. The saving grace of this system is the desk surface, which is very good.

  • Quality unit - very pleased!

    The boxes are lot to handle - three for this unit and pretty heavy - two person job to move. Once in the designated area, I assembled by myself and only needed help lifting the bookcase/upper unit onto the base. Solid piece of furniture.

    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.

  • 3D jigsaw puzzle
    Verified Purchase
    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    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.

    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.

  • Very well built
    Verified Purchase
    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    Love the desk now that it's put together and functioning. See my different categories below for more detail: SHIPPING & DELIVERY Shipped and got here well before estimated time, so that was awesome. Delivery by freight was very well done by that company and the desk boxes (3) were in great condition, as were all the parts. Unless you're a superhuman, if you have flights of stairs to climb like the 3 we do, you will need 2 people to move it inside. Boxes are tall, wide, flat, and HEAVY. Wife and I struggled to hand truck two of the boxes upstairs, but we did it. The heaviest box (#2) we had to open on the ground and take up by pieces. ASSEMBLY Instructions, as mentioned by others, leave something to be desired with basically just pictures. But if you take your time and think each step through, it's not too bad. Try to open one box at a time until you can't find something then go to the next. But everything fit well, just be patient! USE Sturdy, beautiful and very functional! Enjoy!

    Was very impressed with the quality of the unit. Very beautiful and quality look to it. Only issue I had was with the drawers not sliding in and out easily. I believe this can be resolved by adjusting the way the sliders mount onto the sides of the drawers or the unit.

  • Poor quality, service and product
    Verified Purchase
    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    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.

  • Disappointed
    Verified Purchase
    Option: secret maple & chocolate

    I would not recommend this unit to anyone. If the chocolate colored area had been the quality of the blond area, it would have been quite a unit. The instructions for building this unit are horrible. The unit needs more drawers, and the drawers you get are deceiving. They look like their big, and will hold a lot of storage, but their tiny inside. File drawer is ok. My biggest complaint is the quality of the pieces that are chocolate colored. Chips all over the place. Just really poor quality. Will never buy a put together unit ever again

    Very poor workmanship, many pieces were scuffed up and I was missing pieces. If it was not as much for the shipping I would have returned it. I had to go to home depot and get stuff to finish putting it together. They did not return my calls in time. If you don't mind waiting about 3 weeks for delivery and don't mind buying extra stuff to complete the desk, then this is the one for you, not for me. I expected alot more for the price.

    Came delivered less than 7 days, no complain. Instructions were all simple and I have spent only 4 hours myself to put them together so it was good. The bad thing is, there was no screw holes one one of the woods, that is the point everything started being hard and I had to deal with this piece without drill!

    Love the desk, brushed nickel knobs and dual color contrast but its a big pain to put together and instructions aren’t as clear as they should be. Must put sections together before putting them onto the top piece—such as the hutch and the table parallel from the hutch table (this is also hard to get the brackets to line up to the return table) The drawers for the hutch table are a little hard to install and the center hutch doors were a pain to adjust to line up (still slightly crooked).

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Does the hutch come with it or do you have to purchase separately?"

    • A:

      Yes, it does with it.

  • Q:

    "None of the photos show the desk drawer areas. Is there more than one set of drawers and if so, how many are file drawers? I don't need file drawers but I do need at least 6 drawers plus the keyboard drawer/shelf."

    • A:

      there are only three drawers and one of them is a file drawer

  • Q:

    "The colors seem to pop up as opposite. Does the brown with maple finish have the grey industrial look to it?"

    • A:

      My colors are a deep warm brown and classic light maple no grey. They do pop and are quite attractive for the price.

    • A:

      No. The desk system has a chocolate base with a blond maple desk top. The picture is incorrect, but do what I did and call customer service to verify when ordering in case you need to return the item because of color confusion.
