Ordered desk 6/10, it shipped 6/11, and arrived 6/15 (we did have to pick up the 5 boxes....719 pounds....from the freight company as they could not get an 18 wheeler truck into our subdivision). We were able to put the desk & credenza together in 2 hours. I'm sure it will take longer for the hutch with the doors, we will work on that tonight! As mentioned in other reviews the desk is darker than the photo. It is a deep mahogany finish with a redish tint. Very heavy, very sturdy desk. The bridge can go on either side of the desk, and the fully assembled drawer unit can be placed under the desk or credenza where ever you would like it. The desk is a good height for using the keyboard and has nice soft, comfortable edges,. Each piece has separte adjustable 'feet' so that the edges of the desk are not smashing down into the carpet. It does not have any under-the-desk drawers or keyboard pull-out. This desk is huge! Assembled, it is approximately 9 feet by 6 feet. The look & quality would be suitable for a small business or a large home office. I do wish they offered another separate drawer unit that matched, but I think I might be able to find something that can be hidden under the desk portion that would be close in color, or black.
I have been working on this desk all day / every day for almost a year now. I needed something practical that I could spread out all my work on. As mentioned, this desk is huge! It's not a piece of fine furniture, but is very sturdy and doesn't look bad. The price was better than the $8,000 piece of nice office furniture that I wanted, so for now this will do :) I would highly recommend for any office, home or business.
This desk unit was purchased for my small business along with a second desk only. My husband and I were able to put both desk and credenza/hutch together in about 5 hours. The instructions are simple and the only thing that took extra time were the hinges on the doors of the hutch. I think the desks are very rich and beautiful, well constructed, easy to assemble, and well worth the price. I know I could have put it together by myself until lifting the hutch up onto the credenza. This is a very heavy piece of furniture. They were delivered in a reasonable amount of time, approx. 1 week. I only have one thing I did not take into consideration when I made my choice: they do not have drawers in the desk unit. I was able to remedy this by ordering under desk 3 drawer file cabinets from overstock. I am very happy with my purchases.
I have the desk set up in my business office and it looks great and has provided me an inexpensive but professional looking desk. It provides a bit desk top and is made to work with computers.....I have gotten several compliments and one of my peers wants the same desk.
