Our desk was missing a part, that would have helped with stability. The photo makes the desk look a lot "lighter" than it actually is. It's closer to a cherry stain, with a hint of gray. Once the desk is together, and with a little Mcgyvering, it seems sturdy. The bookcase shelf is VERY flimsy. you HAVE to include the back, in order for it to have any sort of strength.
This desk is beautiful and heavy duty. It's relatively easy to assemble but takes time. I purchased the cherry wood and it's darker than the photo but matches my furniture perfect. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a very nice desk at a great price.
Reluctant to but furniture online I ordered this desk on sale to replace an aged desk. When the desk arrived the "white glove" delivery folks did the very minimal assembly and hauled off the shipping materials. The desk is beautiful. It has a rich cherry finish. The drawers are lined well and most important they are on quality rails. It is clearly well made and while maybe not an heirloom furniture piece it was well worth the money. I had no issues with shipping. The whole transaction was smooth from order date to delivery.
