Sleek Desk!

from ENCINO, CA – 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 – 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

Very nice product.

from Saint Francis, MN – 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.

Love this desk!

from Woodbridge, VA – 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.

Nice desk!

from Midland, TX – 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

Not worth the money

from Lenexa, KS – Verified Buyer

I bought this desk thinking it would be great. I loved the open shelves because it seemed like something a little different than drawers. I also liked that the desk seemed not as big and clunky as some other desks can be. However, when I opened the box, the first piece I pulled out was damaged. Secondly, there were no instructions. The desk is fairly simple to put together, but what company doesn't put instructions with a product that requires assembly? This whole thing is just shoddy at best. I would not recommend this desk to anyone. I should have spent a little more money to buy a product that was better quality and at least came with instructions.

This desk is exactly what we were hoping for!

from Spokane, WA – 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.

Looks nice, but not quality

from North Attleboro, MA

My desk arrived on schedule, but with a hole in its package (from shipping.) that went through the product. I called Wayfair and they were going to send out replacement pieces for the damaged ones. The desk looks like it is wood, but it seems as if it is cardboard with an overlay of some type of wood-looking product. It is very light, and not very rugged. It turns out the piece with the hole from shipping was going to be face down, so I used the damaged piece. I thought the desk was going to be made of wood, but it's not. It serves the purpose of a desk for my 10 year old son, and looks nice. I was expecting a little more for the price. It was relative easy to assemble, as my son did most of the work. Looks nice Low quality product, expected more.

Deluxe Parsons Desk

from Sonora, TX – Verified Buyer

This item was easy to assemble, arrived with slight damage to one side of the shelves (I just faced it down when assembling to avoid re-shipping) and I really love the style. Allows for functional/decorative storage boxes, the height and width of the leg space is also very roomy.

from San Antonio, TX – Verified Buyer

I put this desk together by myself and was so excited with the results that I actually use it as my TV stand. I thought the TV would make it cave in but it holds up pretty well. Im looking forward to ordering more products.
