Very, very nice!
Edward from Ann Arbor, MI – Verified Buyer
When assembled, this desk looks like something you'd buy from a good furniture store. (In other words, I really like it!) The material is solid, not flimsy, and it should last a long time. (The weight - over 150 lb - gives firm evidence of this.) The assembly is not trivial, but if you approach it methodically, is not hard. The main thing to watch out for is that a few pieces can be fit into place two different ways, and one way is wrong, and it may not be obvious until later. (This happened to me.) My advice: do not use the (included) wood glue. (Fortunately, I didn't use it.) I don't think the glue is necessary, and if you do use it, it becomes much more difficult to take things apart if you make an assembly error. The bottom line: the desk looks great! My friends have confirmed this judgment.
Beautiful desk, nice and heavy
Tahira from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer
Great desk! Very easy to assemble. All the pegs and screws line up perfectly. Be mindful of how the parts are placed, as some of them may fit both backwards and forwards. I like that the desk can be assembled to have the shelving on either the left or right. The leg opening is about 28 inches high, but not very wide. Works fine for me, but if you have big legs, or a large chair, that might be a problem. Parts of the wood are hollow, but it is sturdy and once assembled, doesn't seem like it will present an issue. I can sit on it (I'm 145lbs) but I probably won't be doing that often. Make sure you assemble it well, or it will wobble. Mine sits against two walls in a corner so it's not a problem here, but when trying to push it into that corner, it wobbled some. It's also extremely heavy and comes in only one box when shipped. I assembled it alone in about one hour, but wish I'd had a friend to help me pick the package up. Holy mother was that thing heavy.
Very Versatile Desk!

The product was exactly as described... It is a hollow core and not a solid wood desk, so know this before purchase. This desk can be placed anywhere, and the parts can actually be rearranged to fit the space of your room (this is not advertised, but I think it should be! We flipped the shelves around to face the desk the other way in order to fit nicely in our little nook of an office! Customer service was phenomenal as well, we had a small nik in the paint of one of the pieces, called them up and ordered a replacement part, they shipped it for free! 90 Minute Installation time... again... thoroughly satisfied with everything about this product! Writing the review while sitting at it :-D Pros: Great Value, Easy Assembly, Versatile
Great Office Piece!
Amanda from Dallas, TX – Verified Buyer
This desk is everything I needed. I wasn't looking for a hutch office piece but more of an open concept which is what I found in this product. The dark cappuccino color is rich and looks great in any room with any wall color. It took my husband and I about 2 hours to assemble, instructions were pretty basic - not too hard to interpret. It's great because the bookshelves and drawers are interchangeable! I'd give it a 4.5 only because there is a small scratch on one of the pieces but when you assemble you can't even see it. Over all great piece for anyone looking to start an office.
Cynthia from Duluth, MN
Over all I really like this computer desk. It was well packaged upon delivery, only took me two days to put it together, had to give my hand and wrist a rest. Directions were easy and most of the pieces were labeled. Only two small concerns. One corner of the laminate on the bottom of the drawer unit was loose and caught on the carpet sweeper, thank goodness it did not break off and I was able to glue it back down. Very small scratch on desk top but noticable to me. Plenty of desk top room.
Jessica from SD – Verified Buyer
I've been looking for a desk for my office for quite some time. This desk was the perfect size to hold all my stuff that previously took three mismatched pieces to hold. This desk looks great when put together. It took my husband and I several hours to put it together, but it was quite easy to put together and the instructions were easy to follow. I absolutely love this desk and the price was the best I could find anywhere.
Very Sturdy Desk!
Celia from Brooklyn, NY – Verified Buyer
I was hesitant about buying furniture I had never seen in person, but for the price it was a steal! It is very solid and looks amazing in our home office space. The box was not damaged, and neither were any of the pieces. It did however take my husband several hours to assemble by himself (I am pregnant so he wouldn't let me help). But it is fairly easy to put together, just time consuming. Love, love, love this desk!
So glad I found this!
Shaunna from Cheltenham, PA – Verified Buyer
Great piece! Excellent quality and it looks amazing in the space. It was exactly what was expected. Delivery was quick. Only downside, it is really heavy and had to sit outside in the box until my husband got home to help me get it into the house. Directions did not come in the box however were available on the Monarch website. Assembly was very easy and took me just over an hour (while watching TV).
LOVE this desk
K from Shreveport, LA – Verified Buyer
I needed a desk for my home office and this desk is PERFECT! Be prepared to spend 2-3 hours assembling but well worth the effort for the price. I would recommend this desk to anyone. Great set up for plenty of surface and storage plus great setup for a printer to stay out of the way. SO happy with this purchase.
Solid Desk for the money
Mike from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer
Overall, I am happy with the quality and look of this desk. Although it is hollow core wood, the look feel and structure does not resemble "cheap" at all. I would rate this desk as one notch above anything from IKEA. Dedicate some time to put it together. It took me around 2.5 hours to set it up. The instructions are clear, just be prepared and patient with the tedious tasks.
