Desk become focus of 'new' livingroom from Newton, NC on 09/11/2014 – Verified Buyer
You know when you've seen the perfect piece of furniture, at least I did. Modern, simply, dark brown/black, brushed metal, with drawers and a file. Perfect. That it was on sale that day clinched the deal in price and free shipping. I'm sitting at this desk just now. Hubby and I haven't put anything together for many years and we can't sit on the floor anymore, BUT we still had the huge old desk in the middle of the floor and we used it as a bench to put this baby together. It took us a couple/three hours. We're out of practice. Your time may be shorter. It was easy actually and the directions are great!! All parts were present. We set it with the stack of drawers on the right, opposite the picture, and it was no problem. Everything works beautifully. The top 2 drawers look the same size but one is a little deeper and the slots are sized accordingly. Just love this desk. I'm sitting here several hours a day. It is too small overall to host a full office chair without looking overwhelmed, so I've a smaller occasional chair that fits fine. If this trips your trigger, buy it. It's a really well made desk.

great desk for small space from Somerville, NJ on 10/13/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered this desk because I wanted something that wouldn't take up a lot of room and wanted drawers for extra storage. It looks very nice, was packaged well and was relatively easy to put together (although there were many steps and it took a few hours). I love the look, it is sturdy and has plenty of room for my 23" monitor plus other stuff but doesn't take up a lot of space and the metal leg makes it seem to take up even less space because of the openness. This is a very sturdy desk too!

A good quality desk from Natick, MA on 04/22/2015 – Verified Buyer
We bought this desk to replace a larger computer desk that we no longer needed when we downsized to a laptop. We initially bought another desk (from a different website) but when it arrived broken and we realized the poor quality of the materials, plus realized that we would need power tools to assemble it, we decided to completely return it and find something else. As soon as we took this desk out of the box we could tell the quality was much better than our previous purchase. And, out of all the pieces of furniture my husband has assembled through the years, this was one of the easiest. I was worried it might feel too small after having a large computer desk. But there's plenty of space on the surface for our laptop, lamp and some organizational bins. The drawers are all spacious and the larger hanging file folder drawer is ideal for our needs. The desk feels solid and well made. And the dark color and silver features look modern and sleek. I would have given the desk five stars but there were some scratches on one of the large side pieces. Had we built the desk so the drawers were on the left, the scratches would have been noticeable and we probably would have requested a replacement. Instead we decided to build the desk so the drawers were on the right and now you can't even see the scratches. Overall, we're very satisfied with our new desk and would recommend it. Pros: Good quality materials, easy to assemble Cons: There was some scratching when the desk arrived but, based on my online research, it seems that's very common no matter the desk or retailer. I wish there were more colors to choose from - ideally I would have liked a cherry desk but it is beautiful.

Just about perfect from Chicago, IL on 01/21/2014 – Verified Buyer
I bought this desk because of the simple design and the file drawer. I was not disappointed once I saw it in person.The box was heavy so going up to my 3rd floor where my spare room is located was tough. From start to finish, by myself, it took about 3 hours to assemble. (I'm pretty savvy when it comes to this stuff but I took my time). The reason for 4 stars is that the front panel of the file drawer was scratched. I emailed it for a replacement piece and it's on it's way. (5 stars for customer service) One last thing, I would suggest that you have your own wood glue handy. The glue they provided was useless.

Great desk from Venice, FL on 03/14/2014 – Verified Buyer
Was attracted to this desk by the design. It was easy to assemble, very precisely built so everything fit just fine. Value for the money is very good. It looks very handsome in our small office space at home. There are reviews complaining about drawer alignment, I put rubber cushion pads on the drawers to equalize the spacing from cabinet to drawer and they are now perfect.

Great desk for a small space. from Little Neck, NY on 08/04/2015 – Verified Buyer
Bought this desk in white - arrived very quickly in soooo many pieces! I unboxed it and placed it out on the floor in order and methodically commenced to assemble it all by myself. I'm pretty good at puzzles but if you're not you might have some trouble putting it together. 2.5 hours later, no problems and voila a beautiful desk. Very sturdy and looks great!

Nice Desk - Meets My Needs from Urbandale, IA on 09/28/2015 – Verified Buyer
It was delivered in under a week and all of the parts were present and clearly marked. There was no shipping damage but there are a couple of minor finish flaws that only I am likely to notice; nothing to the extent that I would return it. A friend and I assembled it in 2 hours. I took the advice of other reviewers and assembled the file cabinet and drawers on a folding table and used a drill on all of the screws. I think it would take a little longer for one person - there was a fair amount of lining things up on several planes. The desk is awkward to move. You need to lift the file cabinet end from the middle and higher than you'd think because the feet are not solid on the button so won't slide on carpet. The person on the end with the leg should lift very gently as it's easy to rack the unit. I didn't try it with furniture slides under the filing cabinet but suspect they would work fine and allow it to slide. I only had to move it a few inches but if you were trying it around a room it would be worth the couple of minutes to slip the furniture slides under it. Pros: Good value for the price, fit was perfect (drawers evenly spaced, assembly machining lined up, etc.), configuration flexibility Cons: A few minor finish flaws and it is a little awkward to move.

Very attractive yet practical desk. from Coraopolis, PA on 08/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
My husband and I both began working from home, and needed to share one home office. He already had a large sit/stand desk than worked well for him. I needed a small yet comfortable desk that could hold my iMac along with a keyboard and mouse. This desk fit the bill perfectly. The open look of it keeps our office from looking crammed with furniture. The drawers hold a lot. Pros: Functional and beautiful.

Great value in a low impact desk! from Woodland Hills, CA on 09/02/2015 – Verified Buyer
I'm outfitting a home office and needed a desk that fits a small space in a spare bedroom. I was not disappointed. At first, I thought that the desk was too small, but it's perfect. It fits cosily in the corner of my guest bedroom, and I love the fact that I can choose which side the drawers can be on. Right now, it's on the left side, but I will switch to the right side. I knocked off a star because of two reasons: (1) The desk came with a slight factory defect in the corner of the top part. But I called customer service, and they will send me a replacement part soon; and (2) The desk is solid, very heavy, but the piece that connects with the drawers does not feel as secure to me. Overall, for the price I paid, I would do it again. Good deal for the money. I'd prefer solid wood, but that's just me being picky. Pros: Great value for the price, easy to assemble (took me just over an hour), solid & heavy, small footprint Cons: We'll see how it holds up over time, but a little wobbly on the connection with the drawers.

Fine desk from Aitkin, MN on 05/02/2015 – Verified Buyer
This desk was for my husband and it is smaller than what he had been used to. He has adjusted to the smaller work surface and is considering getting a file cabinet. It is sturdy in place, but if you decide to move it, I'd suggest that be a 2 person job, once you have it all set up. I'd be afraid that you might snap off a leg on the non drawer side. It took him about 2 hours to put it together. It was rather putzy, not difficult, but the directions tend to be confusing, if you are not the visual type. I wouldn't suggest that you stay away from this desk, however. If space is a concern for you and you don't need a lot of storage, it can serve you well. It's a change for my husband, so that probably comes into the picture, the most. As of late, he says "it is working fine". Pros: Sturdy and fair value Cons: Time consuming to assemble and made of particle board
