This grouping is a very sturdy set. It looks polished and rustic at the same time. Larger than I thought it would be so my husband is thrilled. Highly recommend the whole set.
I was worried that this desk might break in shipment but it survived just fine, the packaging is well done and probably did much to allow for the survivability of the four glass portions of the desk. Setup was easy, the only problems I had were my own because I didn't pay attention to the direction things were facing. This desk has a lot of room, I have two monitors, a laptop and a fairly large laser printer on it and still have open space leftover for another laptop or general use. The original image I looked at made the desk appear to be semi-opaque but it is completely opaque, the bottom of the glass is smoked so the top is very reflective and a deep black. All of the glass pieces had stickers on them that were pain to get the sticky off - peel them up with a razor blade then soak some Windex on it, then clean up with a lint free cloth. Polish off the remainder with a bit of flannel. This seems lengthy, but trying to get it all up with the blade will scratch your glass. I didn't think to slightly moisten the suction cups before putting the glass top down but that probably would be a good idea to make sure they really grab hold of the glass. Note that the keyboard tray is also glass - if you like to cross your legs under the desk or sit Indian-style in your desk chair like an eight year old (as I do) you will need to be careful not to kick it out of the frame. This is not the fault of the desk, just me being weird. If you have never had a glass desk be aware that it makes a lot of noise and you can't just toss your keys and other items onto it like a wooden or plastic desk. you may want to consider placing a large mouse pad down on the desk to give you a "soft impact" area.
This is a great value for the price! The "wood" like laminate does not look cheap, and the hardware is a nice touch. The set makes our office look much more polished! The 3 pieces took quite a bit of time to assemble... my husband has worked in the cabinet industry for many years and he said the assembly was simple if you followed the instructions exactly, but it was fairly extensive and took a long time to complete.
Simple, clean lines. Our desk arrived with three very small chips in the finish on the desk surface. Not immediately noticeable. Some pieces are finished on three sides (all but bottom), others seem to be finished only on 2 sides. (By 'finished', I mean polished with a glossy coating.) But it was fairly easy to put together and does not wobble at all. Feels sturdy. FYI, an insert says that the maximum weight on the tabletop is 40 pounds.
