    I bought this desk for a home office for my husband. I was super nervous about what the color might look like being a computer generated pic online, and if it would arrived damaged, but I could not be any happier with this purchase! The desk is very sturdy, the color is perfect (a very nice rich cherry color), and the size couldn't be better! It took us a few hours to put the desk and matching bookcase together, but time went by quickly with the help of a power drill. Delivery also went very smoothly. I was contacted on a Wednesday by a delivery company that said the shipment would be delivered the following Monday or Tuesday. I was able to give my preference of Monday morning although they said it wasn't a guarantee that it would be delivered then. Sure enough though, Monday morning at 10:20, it was delivered and in perfect condition, no damage at all! Would definitely recommend!

  • Good and pretty big office desk
    Verified Purchase

    The desk comes in 5 packages and 3 of the packages are very heavy. Its difficult even for 2 people to carry it around. The delivery guy had no dolly to transfer it and had to leave it outside our home. It does take a very long time to construct this - close to 4 hours provided you have an electric drill or more. The desk and credenza are easy to build. The hutch is toughest one and really heavy to put it up on the desk. We did not attach the doors and the top on the hutch before attaching it to the desk, to reduce a bit of weight. They were easy to put on later. The bridge did not fit very well into the desk and credenza. The metal clasp that is meant to hold it to the other pieces did not align very well with the edge pieces, showing a little gap. Its a bit annoying to look at. Also the filing cabinet is tricky to put cos one person has to hold the cabinet while its being aligned to fit the screw into the provided holes. All in all its not very easy to put this furniture together but it does look good. It sure does look huge with the hutch. Also because of the packaging, all the pieces would have a very sticky film of thread on it...its very difficult to clean/wipe it off and leaves your room pretty dirty. It took 2-3 rounds of cleaning to clean the desk as well as the room. Having said all of that it is still a good buy for that price - just make sure to devote a lot of time to building it. Also do not go by the overstock policy of shipping for oversized item. Their website says that the delivery company will give you 24-48 hours notice before setting up a delivery time. No they do not. Fedex delivered for us and they called me the day they were planning to deliver it. We were out of town that day since it seemed that delivery estimate was 2-4 weeks and not 2 days like it happened for us. Fortunately fedex was nice enough it hold it for us till we came back. Early delivery is definitely a positive - although the timing was completely wrong for us.

  • Well made and well designed desk set
    Verified Purchase

    We ordered this last year for my husband's new home office. The boxes were heavy! We called the company in advance and advised that we would be unable to help unload due to physical inabilities on our parts and the truck driver delivered them indoors. After being in place for a year, it still looks very professional, the peninsula is a definite favorite with others since they can pull chairs up and work with enough leg room, and desk surface. The hutch is imposing, filing cabinet strangely is suspended from the top and attached on one side, so it gives clearance underneath too. Glass doors look chic, and the metal accents add to the look. The cherry color is pretty, and elegant, suitable for a home office setting. Keep in mind, this baby takes several days and planning to assemble. One or two pieces are definitely awkward to assemble and place. We have the set with the hutch, and although I rate myself as an expert in self-assembled furniture, I had to find room to spread out all parts correctly, and have help at hand to move, lift and place some pieces. According to the instructions, you need to have the whole desk (C-shaped) in place, before you can place the hutch on top, and then how do you attach the hutch to the desk from the back at the desk level, when they are both up against the wall? I ended up securing the hutch to the wall only at the top with my own hardware, and the hutch (it has non-skid foam strips at the bottom) is just sitting on the desk, so it makes me wonder how it was meant to be done? Also, the center back panel in the middle of the "C" shape has no holes for its placement between the two parallel pieces. So you have to hold up the (heavy) panel while you mark & drill fresh holes for the screws that fasten the hardware. Until that is done, the top cannot be secured, since it rests on the back panel. With the center part, all brackets are a chicken and egg story, for the back as well as the desk surface. One negative - the surface can scratch very easily, a dropped stapler or similar weight dragged across in error cost us the surface immediately. Within 2-3 days of use, we placed a desk pad and such protective pieces all over. A glass top for the surfaces would be ideal.

  • Really great buy
    Verified Purchase

    Purchased this desk for my husband's office and we have spent the afternoon assembling it. It has an updated modern look that really fit into the office. It arrived quickly from overstock, took 4 or 5 days from the time I ordered it. Amazing. Quality laminate desk with a limited lifetime warranty. We had looked at Mayline office furniture at an office furniture warehouse for considerably more so this was an amazing buy. High praise for the extra screws, pegs, locknuts,etc. included, great attention to detail in packing. The only minor inconvenience was helping the shipper who's oversize dolly could not go into our office complex. All in all though an amazing buy.
