    Its a lovely desk however THE DESK HAS AN EXTENDED BACK. I did not know of this when i purchased this. The picture doesnt show it at all. Please keep this in mind when you buy it. Aside from that, everything else looks pretty exact (from the front).

  • Very unsturdy!
    Verified Purchase

    I was very disappointed when I saw it first time after we assembled it. Looks cheap, and it is not a surprise - the material is very poor. Desk itself is very flimsy and unsturdy - we had to settle it near the wall to keep it more or less staying on its "feet". Desk is also pretty narrow, and your knees are all the time running into a table's wall that was made closer to your knees than to the end of the desk itself. Sitting there is very uncomfortable especially from the left side (where you are not able to sit at all, because of the low situated drawer). The drawer of the table is constantly stuck when trying to close it. You have to pull it back and forth several times in a row prior a success to close it. And during this process the whole table is just simply SHAKING left-right (only possible directions as we put it closely to the wall)! Will NOT recommend this product.

  • Good value
    Verified Purchase

    This desk was delivered 2 days after i ordered it from Overstock. Finally got around to putting the desk together. Assembly was fairly straightforward (about 30 min) and the desk is suprisingly sturdy once it is assembled. The finish is nice and the dark wood color enhances the classy looks. Definately worth the $$$ I paid for this desk. Good value.

  • drawer is not the best - but great otherwise
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to assemble, was just as advertised, and suited my needs fine. my only problem is that the drawer is a bit difficult to open and close and it doesn't slide easily, but it might just need some wd-40.

  • Disappointed – Already Broken

    I should have known based on the picture, but the desk is very flimsy. It was a little difficult to assemble, but mostly I'm upset that it broke after a week. I moved it just slightly, and the back panel splintered away from the side panel, and the drawer broke, too. Ordered it a while ago and only just assembled, so I'm unable to return. Very bummed.

  • A great HUSBAND desk
    Verified Purchase

    This is a good sturdy desk. Gave this to my husband for Christmas. He was always complaining that he did not have a place to pay bill and read his Bible.Now he does. Plenty of room for this with other things.and with a draw. He loves it. Beautiful.

  • Simple yet nice
    Verified Purchase

    I was not disappointed with this purchase. It's a very simple, but clean-looking desk. Yes, there are higher quality desks out there, but for the price, this desk was just what I was looking for.
