Finished workstation looks great. Drawers not lining up so well, will use something else. Cord slot perfect for adjusting along hutch/desk while still covering access. Handles cheesy, will replace. Otherwise, he loves it!
This is a beautiful professional executive desk for anyone who has the space for a home office or an actual office. The only thing I would say is that it was very hard to assemble but thankfully I got the help of others. The finished assembled product looked amazing and elegant. My husband loves his new home office! This was worth the money.
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.
Ok, you want to know the truth? There is no way an average built woman can assemble this whole thing herself. I can lift pretty heavy things, but you have to be realistic: at some point, sooner or later, you will need an extra pair of hands. Especially if you don't want to scratch or damage anything.This station looks great for the amount of money paid. You won't find a better value! It doesn't mean that it is flawless though: the finish on our hatch is a little bit different than on our main desk - it definitely looks a little bit dull and has some weird subtle smudges, which are impossible to remove ( I tried everything starting from plain water & ending with Method all purpose cleaner) If you have OCD, it will drive you crazy :) But maybe we just got unlucky and everybody else didn't have that problem w smudges on a hutch, which is not a huge deal after all.The real problem we experienced was low quality cam connector screws - every 2d one would break & my husband was handling them as if they were made from glass. At the end, Overstock promptly sent us a replacement from their warehouse - a bunch of new cam connectors.Our friends who see this workstation always compliment on how great it looks, so I would recommend it in a heartbeat. You just have to realize that for that amount of $$ you are likely to have some minor problems, but hopefully Overstock will help to resolve them.
