    A new desk for hubby!

    from Waltham, MA – Verified Buyer

    I ordered this desk on a Tuesday and received it in the mail Thursday! Love the fast delivery. The desk is everything I thought it would be. My brother helped me put it together and it took him about an hour and a half. I wanted to surprise my husband and set up the office for him as an anniversary present. He LOVES the desk, it's the perfect fit for that room. The only reason why I did not give this review 5 stars is because there was a couple of little chips on the top shelf part of the desk in the corner. I was able to hide it with a small clock so it's not visible. But other that than, I am very happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend this desk!

    Very Disappointed

    from Highland Park, IL – Verified Buyer

    The good news. This is an inexpensive desk. Now for the bad news: It comes in a single carton that weighs like a million pounds. The Fedex driver left it on my doorstep and I had to angle walk it in the house. The only way I could actually get it in the upstairs bedroom where it was to go I had to rip open the box (no way to open it so it could be repacked) and take it up piece by piece. When I took out the top I could see that it was broken. In other words the particle board was cracked and the only think holding it together was the veneer. This is when it became obvious that the entire desk is skinned particle board. OK, what did I expect for $178 Then, there are a huge number of pieces. This is like an IKEA nightmare. But, even though I had set aside the afternoon to put it together I couldn't because the darned top was broken. By the time I get the replacement piece, spend the several hours it will take to put it together and then have a piece of particle board furniture that can't possibly age well I would have done much better to spend another couple of hundred bucks for a real desk and had it delivered and placed right where I wanted it.

    very nice

    from Lebanon, OH – Verified Buyer

    My husband needed a new desk for his office. I started shopping and found this one. I like it because it actually has a drawer instead of just a pull out for a keyboard. It has quite a bit of storage space as well. Overall a very good piece of furniture for a very reasonable price. Easy assembly instructions too.

    Great Desk

    from Ledyard, CT – Verified Buyer

    I ordered this because it fit my needs and it was manufactured by one the best companies that do this type furniture. It is time consuming to build, but is worth it in the end results. This is a heavy but sturdy desk and made to last. Pros: Great workmanship, nice looking and, functional Cons: Needs to be packaged in two boxes

    great desk

    from east moriches, NY – Verified Buyer

    great desk, wish the back side was painted too. Not too difficult to put together. Have had for more than 6 months and its holding up well, no problems. Clean lines,good look. Happier with this one than my last from pottery barn. Many people ask where I purchased!

    Great desk!

    from Houston, TX – Verified Buyer

    Such a great decision to buy this desk! We were looking for a smaller more compact desk to fit in a smaller area and this was perfect! Looks so sleek! We love that you can place your laptop hidden under the shelf to give you more desk space. It takes some time to assemble but we love it! If you are looking for a compact yet professional desk, this is it!

    Nice office desk.

    from Galveston, TX – Verified Buyer

    This desk is the perfect fit for our room. My wife and I are in our 60s. A younger couple could most likely assemble it quicker than we did. It took us just under 3 hours. But, the instructions were quite easy to follow. We definitely would recommend this item for anyone that needs an inexpensive desk, functional and sturdy. Thanks.

    Awesome desk

    from Victorville, CA

    I purchased the desk for my new 7th grader! She loves it! The drawers are huge! She loves all the little nooks on the little hutch for all her supplies. My husband enjoyed the ease of assembly and I enjoyed the price, quality and timeliness of delivery! Thanks Wayfair! I will definitely be back for more!

    from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer

    Took almost 2 hours for my husband and I to assemble but it looks very nice finished and all the drawers work well. There were some very minor scratches on the desk once we got it together but it looks great and is a great deal for the price.

    Great Desk!

    from Baytown, TX – Verified Buyer

    This desk is well-made and very sturdy. It is used in my granddaughter's room and she really enjoys it. I really like the lap drawer and the cubbies on the top of the desk...very useful for storage. I was pleased with my purchase price and the shipping speed.
