Desk become focus of 'new' livingroom

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

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!
Just about perfect

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 Monarch 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.

My company bought all of its desks from Europe and when we needed two more they were no longer available. We were looking for something modern and functional; small and practical. These were perfect for our two new hires. They were easy to assemble and you can assemble the filing cabinet on either end which is definitely a necessity.
Great quality, smooth assembly, excellent looks
Katy from Raleigh, NC – Verified Buyer
When I opened the box I was first scared by the number of parts and the complexity of the instructions. But the actual assembly turned out to be easy, all parts came together as a charm. With me giving instructions from the manual and husband operating the screwdriver we were able to complete the job in 1 hour. The quality of the desk is outstanding. It looks great in the room and our teenage daughter was very impressed. There's enough storage in the drawers and the top provides more than enough space for her laptop, books and papers. I also liked the fact that the desk is reversible and the drawers can be on either side. We chose left, so that the empty leg is facing the door.

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.

Take your time when putting this piece together. The file cabinet drawers were probably the hardest to install but everything seemed to come together nicely towards the end. Fortunately all our pieces were straight.
Marcy from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
This is a nice desk, and it was fairly easy--if time consuming--to put together. I hated the packaging, but I suppose it was necessary to protect all the components. But all the hardware and pieces were there in exact counts, and it assembled well. All you need is a screwdriver.
exactly as pictured above
Angela from Frederick, MD – Verified Buyer
It comes in so many parts some are labeled and others are not which makes it take longer than usual, but once I figured all the parts out it was easy putting it together. I had no problems with predrilled holes they all lined up. And also the instructions are pictures only but if you are patient and will look at it twice or more before screwing any thing you should be able to get it right. I am using it in the home office and it's fits the space perfectly. The filing cabinet can be put on any side that you prefer, its a very beautiful piece and makes me forget about all the frustration of putting it together.

Overall it is a nice desk and it is working out really good for me. The assembly time was not bad with the help of my husband. My one complaint was that the top of the desk in one corner was a little damaged from the trip but after taking all of that time to assemble it and the fact that I needed the desk we were not about to take it apart and try and fit it back in the box and send it back so I decided to live with it.
