First of all, this desk is a nightmare to assemble. When it arrived as a big flat package, I knew I was in trouble. The instructions were fairly clear but if you're not mechanically or assembly-wise inclined, I would not recommend getting this piece. I just "finished" assembling it (took me 4 days working off & on to diffuse frustration) and when I went to put in the final drawer, it went in crooked and now I can't get it back out. It's VERY crooked and stuck. Ugh ugh ugh As for the product itself, it is average. Back exterior drawer panel Is cardboard or some kind of fiber board covered with a wood grain laminate. Its corner arrived chipped so I will have to contact overstock or the manufacturer to get a replacement. Maybe it is just the frustration over the drawer but I'm not really liking this desk. Yes, the desk surface is heavy but the whole thing seems precarious and not sturdy. I'm pretty bummed because I bought it based on its positive reviews. Plus I thought the entire thing was wood but it's not.
This is a great looking desk. Cool mid century look. Required some time to assemble but that is to be expected. Really pretty finish, it looks more expensive than it is. happy to get in our office!
It really is much better than I imagined. It looks like an expensive piece of funiture. Unfortunately the drawers do not open all the way. They only open about 2/3 of the way. Considering they're small drawers, it makes it hard to access the back. Also, the drawers are very difficult to push in all the way and to open back up. I keep them slightly open or else I would have to force them open and closed. But aesthetically, very beautiful! I would buy again
I've been searching for a classic looking mid century modern desk with some storage, and this is perfect! It is well made, a beautiful color and perfect for my space. Took about 1.5 hours to assemble.
I would give this zero stars if I could. I don’t know why no one else has mentioned this in the reviews but this product is not shipped with enough protective packaging and by the time it got to us everything was damaged. It looked absolutely ridiculous, like they just threw it all in the box without a care. The pictures are right after opening it, we hadn’t touched anything inside. There’s only a few pieces of styrofoam intended to protect the whole package and they were all broken and shredded because it’s obviously not working! I called customer service and they sent me a replacement, but it came exactly like the first one. The last picture is from the replacement order. Overstock had attempted to put straps around the outside of the box the second time, but it still was damaged all the same. So we will be returning it AGAIN and purchasing a different product.
I like it. It is a pretty desk, simple but good quality. The gold drawer handles give it a nice touch. If you are a person who hates to assemble things and you are planning on purchasing this desk, I definitely recommend you to get help with this piece. This desk took me a long time to put together and I actually don't mind assembling things. I have bought most of my furniture online and I had put together chairs, other desks, beds, and tv stands and this piece was not the easiest assemble. Also, some of the parts were not labeled and the pictures on the manual were not as detailed especially with the drawer glides. I think that's part of the reason it took me so long to put this together.
This desk is awesome.. I just love it.. i had no issues putting it together although the top and one of the drawers arrived damaged. Overstock quickly sent me pieces to replace them.. and they are awesome, i didn't have to pack up and ship out the damaged pieces which is usually a hassle. This piece sits right besides a beautiful real mid century piece I own and they look great next to each other. Don't hesitate buying this desk!
I’m so glad I didn’t listen to the reviews! I love this desk. It’s bigger than I thought it would be, but in a good way. I didn’t have any trouble putting the drawers in like other reviews suggest. The tracks that the drawers slide on are different compared to typical ones, but they aren’t an issue for me.
Easy to put together, and beautiful! Love the mid century look!
More orange than pictured. I ordered the matching bookcase and the color is the same. Also ordered the Angelo mid-century TV console and it's supposed to be Walnut too, but it's so much darker than these that I am considering returning it. Trust me the darkness of that piece is a lot better than the orange of this piece.
This desk is gorgeous! Looks much more expensive than it is. I ordered the brown, admittedly arrived a much lighter shade than I expected, but I like this color too. Glad I waited on selecting a chair to go with. If a darker shade works better with your decor, get the black. ** Estimated assembly time = 2 hours. Add 2 more to that, and you have a much more realistic assembly timeframe. I think it came in 300+ pieces. I would probably pay for assembly on this one had I known. This is a great desk!
I'm so glad I purchased this desk. It arrived within 6 days and it looks more expensive than it is. Putting it together was a bit confusing at times, but nothing that some careful reading couldn't solve. The instructions say 2 people are needed to build it, but I was able to build it by myself in a couple of hours. The only thing I can think of that could be bothersome is the drawer sliders have this smelly, sticky lubricant on them. But if you wipe them off before putting the desk together, it's not a problem. The smell also goes away after a while. The desk top is a good size and the drawers are large enough to fit legal sized sized paper. The drawers open about 2/3 of the way. Over all, a great addition to my apartment. Most mid-century furniture is way more expensive, so for the price, it's a great buy! I recommend this desk.
I like this desk a lot - I got it in black, I would have preferred the brown but it was sold out when I purchased it. It took me about 1.5 hrs to put together, and it was relatively easy. The only problem with the desk is that the drawers don't glide very well. They came covered in grease, which was unpleasant when putting it together, and the grease doesn't seem to help much anyway. I don't anticipate it being a huge problem for most people, unless you use the drawers every day, so I would still recommend this desk.
As for one person, I was able to put the desk together by myself. It took 2 hours, but well worth the time.
Awesome style but low quality look in person when in same room with other higher quality furniture. We assembled with more or less ease but the pieces did t fit perfect, they were off by about 1/4 inch which made it unsturdy and Appear lower quality. I would not recommend. I the flip side, iversticj has great customer service and I was able to return for refund.
This desk is the perfect mid-century desk! The only reason I took off 1 star is that mine was delivered with a bunch of scratches on it.
Great modern look- sturdy and well built. Very happy with this purchase and would def recommend
I’VE HAD ENOUGH. I loved this desk initially. Bought it in October 2018, it’s now January 2019. Looked great easy to assemble, but we were missing parts. No problem, they shipped them to us. Then about a month ago, the bottom drawer stopped staying closed. I would close it and then it would just slide back open. Irritating. And now today, the leg under the front of the drawers spontaneously broke off because the screws came out of the partial board holding it together. Everything came crashing down. There was NOTHING overly heavy in the drawers or on top to cause this and it is now 100% unusable. I would give it zero stars if I could. Horrible quality and a huge waste of my money. And now I have no desk and school starts again on Monday.
Fantastic product! easy to assemble and very stylish. I am particularly fond of the quality of the drawers, they are well made defiantly NOT IKEA. Thank you
I put this desk in my office. Very nice quality! ships fast. Got it within a week of my purchase. I would definitely purchase furnitures again with Overstock
