Sleek Desk! from ENCINO, CA on 01/02/2015 – Verified Buyer
This desk is very nice and it fits perfectly in my home office. It looks much more expensive for the price! It also is much bigger and bulkier in person. The best features of it are the extra "shelves" on each side where you can put decorative items, office supplies or printer. Other products were more expensive and definitely didn't look this nice!

Nice, Simple and Large Desk from Henderson, NV on 11/26/2014 – Verified Buyer
Desk is very sturdy and decent size! The only thing I warn others about is the shelving is not big enough for a computer tower so if that is what you are going to use it for, you will have to put it elsewhere! Otherwise a very nice desk at a great price. Pros: large, great buy, easy to assemble Cons: shelving is too small for computer

Nice desk! from Midland, TX on 04/24/2015 – Verified Buyer
Now this desk was a little more complicated for me but overall it came together. All the parts were delivered with the exception of the instructions. Wayfair.com/hlep remedied that issue within moments of calling them by sending it to me as a pdf. Pros: Desk was larger than imagine but not bad for the price. Cons: delayed due to missing instructions

Decent product from Louisville, KY on 11/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
The product showed a day later than expected delivery when purchased. Packaging was terrible. There was zero padding/cushion in the box to protect the wood. As you can see the box went to Iraq and back during delivery. (Pics) You'd think there would've been styrofoam at the least on all four corners. Nope, absolutely nothing but wood stacked in a cardboard box. After opening I counted 7 minor dings as a result. Each impact on the box reflected on the wood. All in all I didn't want to mess with sending it back because of the shipper, and hauling this 5 foot box into my car but I feel the box could've been prepared a Lot better before shipping. Also some pieces did not line up square. There are small gaps where the wood just would not match up. The fastener that holds one leg to the top broke while tightening, with very little force. To wrap this up, it serves it purpose for me as a desk behind my desk ( for more space). For the price it's not too bad. Not sure if I would purchase this product again due to the shipping and boxing quality. But I do like it the look. So 3 stars it is. And honestly at 130ish bucks, you get what you pay for.

Perfect for my Home Office!! from WA on 11/01/2015 – Verified Buyer
We really love this desk!! The color looks great, it was easy to put together, it's very spacious and looks high quality. The top is large enough to fit 2 24" screens and my docking station. The shelves at the bottom are large enough for my printer/scanner. I would definitely recommend this. Pros: Great color, lot's of space on top, easy to assemble Cons: It would be awesome if the shelves were adjustable (I knew they weren't when I bought it though).

Great looking desk and a great deal! from Seattle, WA on 11/09/2015 – Verified Buyer
Good looking desk with plenty of space to work with. I'm probably going to get a couple bins to use as pseudo-drawers on the shelves, but I like the open shelf look. Assembly was pretty easy and well laid out in the instructions. The desk is really light weight, which is great for moving around. I highly recommend this desk for those looking for a good price. Pros: Great value; nice look Cons: None

Perfect Desk from NJ on 09/27/2015 – Verified Buyer
I needed a desk for my son's bedroom with shelving for his video game consoles & storage. This desk fits perfectly in his room & has plenty of storage on the open shelves. It's a little high for a standard chair. We had to purchase more of an office style chair that has the capability to adjust its height to meet a comfortable level for the desk top. It's more of a formica-ish finish, but it seems durable & looks great & modern. We are happy w/ the purchase.

Love this desk! from Woodbridge, VA on 11/04/2014 – Verified Buyer
Pain in the butt to assemble, but once it's assembled it's pretty awesome. The desk looks more expensive than it is. It was just what I wanted! I will order other things from this site in the future.

This desk is exactly what we were hoping for! from Spokane, WA on 01/06/2015 – Verified Buyer
The size and quality are great. It was easy to put together and definitely worth the cost! We took off the base off of both the sides and the height is perfect for the other two desks that we bought to create our own double L desk with two Parsons Writing desks.

Very nice product. from Saint Francis, MN on 11/25/2014 – Verified Buyer
I bought this because of the cool geometric look. I like clean lines and this definitely has it. As with any piece of furniture that is not solid wood, it isn't perfect, but it works great for what I need it for. No complaints about the product. However, the box cam unglued during shipping which was concerning as I was afraid that pieces may be missing.
