Updated Review (Mar 29, 2017): First of all, this desk looks great and the price is okay if it's on sale. The one I ordered was received damaged, but Overstock has promptly dealt with the problem, and I've already received the shipping notification for a replacement. So, why only three stars? While the damage is significant, I would've settled it they'd offered a 50% refund because of the location of the damage--I could probably hide the damage from view. But, the specialist could only offer *** . (You've got to be kidding??!!) I'd think their compensation would be based on what they're paying in shipping to replace the desk. They're shipping the new desk at no additional charge, and they provided a UPS return label for the damaged desk--the shipping and handling alone will total more than offering me a 50% refund. Oh, well. Anyway, the three-star rating is mostly because I still have to put the damaged desk back into the box and drag it somewhere for UPS to pick up. Original Review (Mar 28, 2017): Just to clear, this desk looks amazing. The table top construction is simple, but reasonably sound--feels solid, even though it's nicely disguised plywood. The legs and braces could be sturdier, but suitable for intended use. BUT...the desk was received damaged due poor packaging--needed thick corner blocks vs thin overlay of Styrofoam. If you look at the attached photos, the damage to the carton wouldn't cause immediate alarm; however, the damage to the desk is substantial and not repairable.
Gorgeous desk! Real wood and NOT some cheap plywood. Well made. Sturdy. It was easy to put together. The color is actually a bit darker cherry than shown on the photo, same goes for the metal legs but it actually works better. Overall a gorgeous classic desk! Absolutely recommend!
Perfect desk for my space. Looks elegant and is good quality with wood that feels heavy and real, not flimsy plywood. Only downside is that it's definitely not a basic assembly (worth noting that I'm not particularly handy, either). It took me a few hours but ended up being well worth the effort.
I live in a very small studio and need all of my furniture to do double duty. Due to the open design, I am able to use one side of the desk for my home office and the other side as a vanity table to apply my makeup. It was a little cumbersome to put together, but I managed it alone in about three hours. I paired this desk with the Legare Bent Plywood Chair. They make a perfect match!
