I purchased the desk using a Club O rewards 16% special. It seems that Overstock runs some type of special offer quite regularly and I would recommend waiting for one. Especially when making a large purchase. It made my net cost around $*** which is a terrific value for a beautiful and well constructed solid heavy desk. Even more so as it is made of real oak and not cheap particle board. It arrived promptly in 3 very heavy boxes. Honestly, I'm not particularly handy so I got my handy man to assemble it. My time being valuable to me it was well worth it. It took him just over 2 hours. It probably would have taken me 2 days and with not as good an outcome I'm certain. It is a beautiful traditional style pedestal desk with plenty of storage. You ought to know that the wood is a bit darker and redder than it appears in the pictures. The left pedestal has space in which to place the computer with a hole for the wires to emerge. However, computers can generate a lot of heat which could be even greater if it is kept in a unventilated and confined desk area. It could wind up damaging the computer or even worse starting a fire. So I placed it inconspicuously on the floor beside the right of the desk. Between the desk and wall. Just a suggestion if it works for you. I highly recommend this beautiful desk. It is a terrific value.
