My husband and I are very happy with this desk. We originally planned to purchase the West Elm Parsons desk, but after seeing it in the store, we weren't as happy with it as we thought we would be, so we took a chance and bought this one instead. It is almost exactly the same size, seems to be just as sturdy, and we saved about $200. Several reviews have mentioned that this desk DOES chip and scratch easily, which I agree with, but I have read the same thing about the much more expensive Parsons desk. Several reviews also mentioned that this desk is not as glossy as the Parsons desk, but I find it to be exactly the level of glossiness that I both expected and wanted. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase, and while I don't necessarily expect it to hold up for a lifetime, I do think it will last for at least the next 5+ years, which is all we are really looking for right now.
