  • Not What I Expected
    Verified Purchase

    Some people have said that this desk is like the one at "West Elm" (Parson's Desk). But if you are looking for the shiny lacquered finish (piano finish), THIS IS NOT IT. It has a PAINT FINISH, and is definitely NOT HIGH GLOSS FINISH. Other than that it is what it says it is. Just wanted to inform those who were looking at this as a LACQUERED FINISH desk. What I did to solve the lack of high gloss finish, was just buy a glass top and it made it look a lot better.

  • Great Substitute for high end Parsons Desk
    Verified Purchase

    I searched for a desk for several months. I wanted something with clean lines that would look great in my space. I considered the West Elm Parsons Desk but was not happy with the $350 price tag. I searched and found this desk (47.25 inches long x 23.625 inches deep x 29.5 inches high) which has nearly the same dimensions as the West Elm Desk (48" long x 24"deep x 30"high). It arrived packaged very well and was easy to assemble. The drawers were already attached onto the desk. Assembly simply involved attaching the legs. I really like this desk. It is large enough for my laptop and a few decor items without being overly large. The only drawback is that the 2 drawers are not very spacious. They are just big enough for pencils, pens and stationary but not at all adequate for anything larger or for any type of storage. Overall this desk has clean lines and looks very good.

  • Great, but not as glossy as I had hoped
    Verified Purchase

    I was hoping that the desk would be very shiny, almost laquer like, but it looks fairly dull up close. However, it does look pretty shiny from far away. If I had seen the desk in person, I might not have bought it. It is a good value for the price and very sturdy and easy to put together, but I was going for a more modern look that I don' t think this captures.

  • Inexpensive Alternative to West Elm
    Verified Purchase

    I've been wanting a West Elm Parsons Desk so when I found this, I jumped on it immdediately. I wish I had read ALL the reviews, because then I wouldn't have expected it to have a glossy finish and look just like West Elm's laquered white desk. The desk was very easy and quick to assemble. Also, the two drawers are a bit shallow so don't expect to stuff too many things in there. Overall, it's a nice, simple desk. While it's a great alternative to the West Elm Parsons Desk, it's not a perfect substitute. If I'm not too lazy, I may look into some spray laquer or shellac to give it that gloss I was hoping for.

  • Excellent simple student desk!
    Verified Purchase

    This desk is made of real wood and was very easy to assemble. It is perfect for a student to spread out their books and paperwork. I am really happy with this desk and you can't beat the price especially for real wood. The drawers are small though, so you will need additional storage for your accessories.

  • Great space saver
    Verified Purchase

    Love this desk. Solid wood and sturdy. Two nice thin drawers to fit printer paper or pens, ink, etc. Can fit a bookshelf or filing cabinet under the desk. Room for our apple desktop and writing area and a printer. Big desk for small space. Looks great.

    This desk is beautiful. And more importantly it’s STRUDY and heavy. Assembly was a BREEZE. Literally all that’s required is to attach the legs, which they provide you with a tool to do. As other reviewers have said, this desk does NOT have the high gloss piano finish. But I wasn’t personally looking for that feature, so the semi-gloss finish was great for me. This desk is for my office/beauty room and I just can’t emphasize how gorgeous and high quality this piece is. And for the price it’s an absolute STEAL. I highly recommend this desk. If you’re looking for a beautiful, sturdy, modern desk that is a nice large size, this desk is for you. I attached pics which speak for themselves as to how attractive this desk is. I absolutely love it.

    I never write reviews, but agonized over getting this desk vs. the similar West Elm one for a long time, and wanted to share my two cents as I'm sure there are other people in a similar position! I'm super happy with this sweet little desk, and am glad that I was smart and decided to save over $200 getting this one vs. West Elm's Parsons desk. Here's how they differ: West Elm's has a smooth, glossy lacquered surface. This one has what I would call a semi-gloss surface, and actually has a light sort-of wood grain look and feel to it, which actually makes it feel higher quality, IMHO. I'm really happy with both the finish and the bright white color. I was worried that the desk would look like cheap plasterboard (aka IKEA's bookshelves, for example), but it doesn't. It's lovely! I've read that the finish can scratch easily so I'm being extra careful, but West Elm's Parsons desk also scratch and chip very easily, from what I've observed and reviews I've read. So the finish is A+in my book. The other big difference, as this might be important to a purist, is that the legs on this desk are not the same width as the tabletop, and that's actually what distinguishes the Parsons design: the width of all the pieces are the same proportion. The legs on this desk are thinner than the tabletop, as you can see in the stock photo. To me, this is not a big deal, but it might be important to someone. To be honest I didn't realize the difference before I ordered this one, and it's taken me two weeks of looking at it daily before I noticed the difference. All in all I think this is a great buy, and a lovely work desk!

  • totally worth the work!
    Verified Purchase

    Pros: I've wanted the West Elm Parsons desk FOREVER & recently contemplated buying it but the shipping & special handling fee added nearly an extra $100 to the price. I read the reviews on this product & liked the similar/modern yet classic lines of this desk. It's very sturdy & well made. It has a sleek look & goes well with any decor. I'm especially happy with the way it looks with my mid-century/vintage decor in my home office/studio. I'd recommend this to a friend in a heartbeat. Cons: The only negative thing I'll say is that while there is limited stuff to put together (you just need to attach the legs to the top), it's INSANELY difficult, given the positioning of the holes & the fact that you need to use an L-wrench. I have a bit for my electric drill & had no luck using it because of the angle required. I have to say that the quality, great look of the desk & price make it well worth my cramped hands & scraped knuckles! Note: If you have arthritis and/or are elderly, this would probably be very frustrating to assemble.

  • Exactly as Expected!
    Verified Purchase

    Saw this desk used for an office in a master bedroom in a Better Homes & Gardens article. It looked great there and looks just as good in my master bedroom office. It is the perfect size, shape, and color and only enhances the decor in my room. Some of your reviews complained that it didn't have the glossy laquered look but the paint is far from dull. It may not be as glossy as some of the higher priced desks but it definitely has the right amount of shine. The two drawers are large enough for those little items necessary in a desk and make it convenient for keeping the desktop clear. The price of the desk is ridiculously low for what you get. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase.

    I am extremely happy with the purchase. The desk is not as glossy as west elm's version, but is still polished and well painted, and that actually fits my need better. Very easy to assemble. And you can't beat the price.

  • Lovely - West Elm Parsons look-a-like
    Verified Purchase

    I found this desk after looking for a used West Elm Parsons desk for week. Though this desk is less glossy than the West Elm Parsons desk, it is an excellent and much more affordable substitute. It's very easy to assemble, and has very high resale value. When I moved, I was able to sell my 6-month-old desk for *** and then rebuy it when I got to my new city. If you get an ink mark on it, put a tiny amount of nail polish remover on a cotton ball and use it to remove the stain. This is probably removing a small amount of the paint, but your desk will be stainless! I am a full-time entrepreneur and writer, and I love this desk. Highly recommend!

  • hesitating...should you buy or should you go
    Verified Purchase

    I have been looking at the west elm desk for about a year. I found this desk and hesitated after reading some reviews. I finally purchased it for my daughter, just didn't want to spend that much money for the West Elm desk when so many things needed to be bought to redo her bedroom, I wanted to put the money on other things. I was SO PLEASED when opening, easy to put together, sturdy, my daughter LOVES it! I would HIGHLY recommend it...it is not lacquered, but at that price who cares!! Simply said, if you don't have a problem spending over *** for the WE desk or you have the time to save the money, buy their desk...for me, I needed the desk, I wanted the desk, when it came down to saving over 50% vs lacquered finish?...that was when I clicked the purchase button...couldn't be happier!

  • Love this desk!
    Verified Purchase

    I've never seen the West Elm parsons desk in person but I have been admiring it for a long time. However, I cannot justify spending over $$$ on that desk. I thought this was a good alternative. Maybe it's not quite as shiny compared to the West Elm desk but I am quite happy with it. The only thing is, it seems slightly wobbly.

  • Perfect Contemporary Desk
    Verified Purchase

    I was looking for a plain white desk with minimal decoration/slight sheen for my contemporary but shabby chic styled bedroom (something that's not too gaudy or distracting). I looked at both *** and decided that the price and look I needed was better suited by this desk. The desk has two side by side drawers that are shallow (like most have said) but glide smoothly even though they do not have a traditional wheel track. Unless you just love drawers popping off track occasionally, I don't see the missing track as a problem. The desk is stark white and should match perfectly with other stark white furniture items. It's also sturdy enough to hold my 50 pound plasma that I've yet to find a sturdy wall mount for, without buckling under the weight. Height wise, this desk is perfectly tall enough for my hubby who's six feet tall as well as short enough for me at five foot three (hope that didn't confuse you). All in all, the desk is perfect and took me under ten minutes to assemble since the only parts you need to attach are the four legs and it comes with the only tools/screws you'll need.

    Love this desk!! It's identical to the West Elm desk except much more affordable. The table is sturdy and does not rock and perform for working from home. The top is glossy but not SUPER glossy which I prefer.

    My husband and I placed two of these side by side in our office/loft. I LOVE the way they look. We needed something really streamlined and clean because it's a space that we all use and hang out in. The 4 stars is because the drawers are extremely shallow. It is difficult to store much in them. That said, on the positive side, it doesn't allow me to stuff my desk with things that I then forget about... I, instead, have to be very mindful of what I use it for. I would buy these again for the space that we needed them for. Easy to assemble!

    This desk looks great, however it is not well made. It came damaged, Overstock excellent customer service send us another one but it also came damaged. Its cheap, and very easy to break. Looks good though if you receive a undamaged one. Be careful, when moving this desk around, legs are very fragile and break easy.

  • Verified Purchase

    The desk looks great but it isn't very durable. The legs are flimsy and the white top marks easily. The legs will break easy if it gets bumped or pushed around without picking it up.

    I've had this for quite some time and its held up very well. It's the perfect size for small apartment living and is the perfect height. I even have room for storage of my craft/sewing supplies underneath without it looking cramped or crowded. I only wish the drawers were a bit bigger, but it keeps me from filling them with junk.

    Easy to put together and has held up well. It's a perfect size for my daughter's room - substantial enough and has enough space, but not too big. It has a sturdy feel.
