We assembled it yesterday and it does tell you that two people are required to assemble it. Trying to do it alone would be terrible. I would recommend looking over all the instructions from each box before you begin. We built it by the numbers on the boxes only to find out the file cabinet needs to be installed before you attach the computer wing if you want to attach it to the desk. We did not attach it as the desk is so heavy the cabinet is not going to move! The finish is beautiful and very durable. It is worth every penny I paid for it. I loved this purchase so much I bought a small kitchen set yesterday! Look forward more purchases in the future.
Overall, I am very pleased with my new office desk. The quality and look of the desk is professional, sturdy, well worth the money and well made. It is attractive and very functional. My only negative comment about the desk is you can't put anything on top of your hutch since the hinged drawer does not go inside the desk but instead, over the top. Anything on top will be pushed to the back or off the desk all together. I would recommend this desk to anyone. Please be careful ordering the desk you want. This model comes in two colors - sandstone & slate (white and gray) and bordeaux and slate (red and gray). The website shows the names switched. When I ordered the desk, I thought I was ordering the bordeaux and slate. When the desk came in, I got sandstone and slate. Needless to say, I was not happy. We had already opened one of the 5 boxes when we realized the wrong desk was delivered. It had to be returned and a new desk shipped out. In the meantime, I had already given my old desk to a co-worker and I had to use a card table until the new desk came in. I alerted Overstock that the website names was wrong but it is still showing the wrong name. Remember...I warned you.
I love this desk. It’s obviously veneer, but it is well crafted, easy to assemble, and still looks new after a couple of years. My only complaint is that I need one more to match in the second office, but I can’t find the cherry finish now.
