      I do not write reviews but this desk is worth reviewing especially since I received it the very next day I ordered it (std. shipping)!. First off, I live in an apartment but my room is the master. this desk fits nicely in my window corner. The color is exactly what i expected...exactly as shown. On it i have a 21.5 iMac in the corner. i still have room to open my Physics book and still have ample arm room to do problems. On the top shelf i have a standard size hp printer that hangs off both sides about half an inch (does not bother me). On the bottom shelf I have magazines and a open top serving tray that i throw things in that i'd normally throw in a drawer. My bf put this desk together but he said it wasn't hard at all. I srsly wanted an accent chair (for comfort) but they were all too wide. That was the only downside which isn't really a downside b/c i found a really comfy leather office chair. the bar at the foot is not comfy for resting your bare feet. wear shoes or put them on the ground. I'd buy again! I gave 5stars not b/c it is absolutely the best thing ever but, it truly is a wonderful desk.

      The bottom shelf is about 11.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 15.5" deep. The top shelf is almost 9.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 13" deep. So no, you can't put a mid or full sized computer case on a shelf. I didn't read the instructions and I messed up the top of it. DOH! Other than that, packaged well, easy to assemble, light weight, and sturdy. Color matches other espresso finishes that I own.

    • Great purchase!
      Verified Purchase

      I recently transitioned to working from home full-time but I live in a one bedroom apt. so I was looking for a desk that would look elegant enough to go with my home decor and not take up too much space in the corner my dining/living area - but also have enough room for my 27-inch thunderbolt apple desktop monitor and my13-inch macbook laptop next to it (so basically long and narrow is what I was going for). And this desk fit the bill perfectly! It took me about 2 hours to put together myself and I got turned around once or twice with all the pieces but each piece came labeled with a letter sticker which made it super easy to follow in the instructions. I'm a patient person and liked the task of putting it together myself (and I had 2 hours in the day to do it) so I really didn't mind putting it together. And once it was up and running it was just exactly what I was hoping for. The wood is heavy and sturdy and the finish is really clean and an elegant espresso brown. Plus I searched a lot all around trying to find the perfect desk at the right price and this one is definitely the best value I found. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone!

      I've purchased a couple of comparable desks from Pier One for double the money and there is no difference. This looks good, was easy to put together and is very functional. I received it in 4 days and in perfect condition. I'm ordering another one right now.

    • Very pretty
      Verified Purchase

      designed for a small room and or space. Unfortunately I had to have 3 inches cut off because it was to long for my small space. The details on the desk to are beautiful. the brown fading into a deep brown or maybe even black. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    • Excellent for the money
      Verified Purchase

      I'd had my eye on this desk for awhile since I knew it would fit perfectly in my loft-style apartment. It goes great with an espresso color coffee table that I purchased from ***** a few months prior. The desk itself is very sturdy, and works great for my 24-inch monitor while still leaving room for a laptop on the side. Assembly was relatively simple, though the instructions could have been a little more descriptive. (When are instructions for these types of things ever GOOD though) The only thing I'd caution for potential buyers is that the finish on the desk seems to be easily worn. I noticed that even though I had the top of the desk on some soft carpet while assembling the finish had rubbed off in two spots just from moving it around a bit. I don't think this is anything a touch-up pen won't fix, but it's something to think about if it's going to get some solid wear. Other than that it looks great and serves its purpose for a great price.

    • Compact Well-Made Desk
      Verified Purchase

      My spare bedroom/study is very small, so I was looking for a desk with a small footprint. This desk arrived quickly, was easy to assemble, and fit well in the room. I have my 24-inch iMac on it with keyboard and there is room for my phone and documents. There is no keyboard tray, however, so this desk works only if you do not need one. The side shelves are not big enough for a standard printer, but they hold my router and cable box easily. The lower shelf accommodates paper and other supplies. Overall, I am very satisfied.

    • Great little desk
      Verified Purchase

      The desk arrived prompty and was packaged securly. The box was only 40 lbs but with it's size it can be a little difficult for one person to maneuver. All parts were labeled which made assembly a no-brainer. The desk is not large and the shelves don't allow much for more than a stack of 8.5" x 11" printer paper but it's what I was after for the small space I have. The product looks great and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

      Verified Purchase

      Its a nice desk heavy, but the screws for the leg on the right side (the one without the shelves) never stayed put. The leg pulled apart constantly and eventually broke off completely. I tried rescrewing and using wood glue, but it would not stay put. I've had the desk for less than 6 months.

    • Perfect make-up desk
      Verified Purchase

      I have been looking for a desk I could fit in my bedroom where I could do my make-up...instead of the bathroom sink. I really like this one because it does not take up too much space and has a more open look. The make up bench fits perfectly under the desk top and when I sit there is plenty of knee room. I put seldom used items in baskets on the shelves to the left. They are easily accessible when I need them but not taking up space on the top. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is exactly what I needed.

    • Sturdy little desk
      Verified Purchase

      I needed a small desk that I could incorporate into my living room without turning my living room into an office. This desk is perfect. The scale is small so it's unobtrusive but it's very functional. I use this as my main desk when I get home from work in the evenings and on weekends. I have it sitting behind the sofa so no-one walking into the room can really see the desk unless they really look for it. The lower shelf on the left is not quite big enough for the printer I have sitting there but it works as a place to store the printer. My husband put it together in a couple of hours and the only problem he had was a nut or bolt that broke in half - with one half in his hand and the other half in the desk. Seems to be sturdy even given that so we're not too worried about it. Overall, I'd recommend it.

    • Cheap but effective
      Verified Purchase

      I wanted to get a desk that would complement my existing nightstand (moved in with the SO and let's just say there's a desk's worth of clutter on the far side of the bed). This piece solved that perfectly. Careful with the hardware though — one of the pieces slipped into the wrong hole and won't come out., leaving the whole thing a little weaker than designed.

      I've been using this desk in my home office for years now, and it's holding up great! When I needed a bigger (L-shaped) desk, I simply bought a second one of these to create my own L. It's got clean lines, it's a good height, and the shelves are great for storage. I will suggest though, that you save the allen wrench that comes with it and tighten up the screws periodically to keep things sturdy. All in all, great desk!

      • A:

        Yes, it does. It is very easy to assemble but remember when screwing the rails to the underside of the top to use the shorter screws, the long ones could go too far and damage the top. Also, I used wood glue and it is as sturdy as you could possibly need. Very nice little desk.
