  • Elegant Writing Desk
    Verified Purchase

    I have owned this desk for a few years now and moved three times during this time. It looks very elegant and sturdy. It complements any décor and can be placed in a bedroom, office or living area. It works in almost any room in the house. It is a large desk with a spacious work surface. Lots of room to a table lamp, printer, desk accessories and computer. Love this purchase!

    Item arrived with some shipping damage but when I contacted Overstock about it they sent out a replacement which arrived quickly with no problems. The desk is everything they described and more. Very pleased.

    Great value! The desk is 55-1/2" wide - we bought two to fit against one wall in our study. The small top measures 8-1/2" deep (drawers are 7" deep measuring from interior of the drawer) - depth of main open area of desktop is 19-1/2" deep (measured to the beginning of the upper box), so lots of room for a workspace (overall desk depth is 28" - including the smaller box on the main desk). Main desktop drawer depth is 15", so room for some files or paperwork (drawer is about 2" interior height). My monitor, speakers, rolodex, joystick all fit on top of upper box with lots of room left. Note these measurements as they are not shown in the online specs. I think you could easily modify the main desk drawer to open as a keyboard drawer (by adding hinges), but is comes as a regular drawer. The middle top and main desk drawers are much wider than the side drawers. Really finishes off our office nicely. Now we have a place to put our papers and supplies (six drawers in all). Almost black in color (it is an espresso brown). Took a few hours to put it all together but not too hard and well worth it. Just take your time - there are areas not premarked for the screws, so be sure to measure placement (mainly placement of the top box and screwing it to the main desktop). Compared to other items (storage and looks) and prices locally, this was quite the deal and very, very nice. Everything in our study now looks clean and organized!!

  • Nice solid attractive piece
    Verified Purchase

    Other than the drawers (particle board bottoms), the piece is very solid... much heavier than I expected. It is a good size desk. It is as, maybe more, attractive than the picture. I thought assembly was straight forward. I find it helpful to lay out all of the parts and to identify what they are and more or less how they fit together. All of the different screws, fasteners, etc. are bagged separately and numbered corresponding to the directions. I spent under two hours assembling it by myself. I used a power drill to install most of the screws, being careful not to over tighten. Rather than attach the top section of the desk, I had some small stick on rubber bumpers that I put one the bottom of it. They keep it from slipping very nicely without having to screw through the surface of the desk to secure it. This way the desk could be used without the top piece.

  • nice quality desk
    Verified Purchase

    I was nervous about ordering something sight unseen, but the other reviewers were right on target. It's a beautiful, good quality desk - solid, well-made, and attractive. I expected to spend 4 hours putting it together, but once I got all the pieces and hardware organized it only took about 2 hours plus about 15 minutes the next day to put the drawer pulls on. I'm not exactly the strongest woman but didn't have any problems putting it together myself. I just used an electric screwdriver and a drill. Other reviewers were correct that some of the pre-drilled holes were not even close to being in the right place which is why I needed the drill. I'm very happy with the desk so far.

  • Beautiful Solid Desk/Good Value
    Verified Purchase

    You can't beat this price for a solid wood desk. I am giving 4 stars because the other reviews are right - it is darker than you would think (I would call it black). And the instructions could have been a little more clear in one area (see below)... But, aside from that I love my desk! First of all, the desk is solid wood - so it is heavy... This does make assembly a little awkward. But, hey! It's solid wood! I assembled the desk by myself in just under 2 hours, it would have gone a little faster with someone to help with the top. I would say the 4 hour estimates must have been from people not using a power screwdriver. That is a requirement here (many screws, long screws, and cams). While assembly was mostly straight forward, it was more complex than your run-of-the-mill department, store particle board special. Extra hardware was provided (e.g., cam locks, screws dowels), which is a good thing. And for the most part the instructions were complete... Instructions were a little vague around the front rail (careful inspection of the inventory pictures-and some common sense worked here), and 2 dowel holes for the top didn't line up well enough to "cajole" into place. Considering how many screws and fasteners they attach the top with, I removed the dowels and never missed them.

    This desk far exceeded my expectations. I was put off by some of the reviews that said 4-6 hours to construct. If you have any experience putting furniture together this should only take around 90 minutes to construct. You will need somebody to help you position the desk top before securing it. Line up the dowels and then put your whole body weight on the top - no problem. Looks amazing. Instead of screwing the top drawers to the desk top I put a small rubber pad (the kind that go under a glass table top to hold it in place) in each corner. That way I can use the desk without the top drawers at a later date, but in the meantime the drawers don't slide around and scratch the table top.
