A very nice desk, for the money. Large enough for my laptop... With still enough room to write. Has 2 drawers that are not very deep... Don't hold much. We had a piece of glass cut to fit the top, since it is a painted finish. Looks great!
This desk was really easy to put together and I've used it for two years now. The drawers have held up well, but aren't very deep, so it's best for small office supplies. The finish is more matte and I would imagine that the desk top might be easily scratched. I had a piece of glass cut to fit to prevent that from happening. This is a great buy if you're looking for a Parson-style desk without the lofty price tag.
Solid wood with bright white satin painted finish. Only assembly is screwing the legs into metal brackets bolted securely into the underside of the desk - easy and sturdy. Ordered 2, one set of legs wasn't quite as tight a fit as the other, but it is more a slight cosmetic issue, not a functional problem. Both boxes came severely damaged, and the desks tops each had slight puncture type impact marks. Overstock offered fair compensation so I kept the desks. Very nice looking, would purchase again.
Like many others I was thinking about buying the West Elm Parsons Desk but just couldn't stomach the cost of the desk plus the crazy delivery fee & surcharge. I read most of the reviews for this one and even though I'm pretty picky with home furnishings and decor I thought I'd give it a go. I just received it today and am NOT disappointed at all! There's no visible wood grain which I was slightly worried about and while it is not high gloss it does has a super smooth eggshell/satin finish. Overall very pleased I went this route and not the other overpriced "higher-end" route!
