Beautiful desk - pretty much exactly what I wanted! It arrived quickly and was really easy to put together. The wood grain is gorgeous and is polished to a nice smooth natural finish. The drawers don’t extend very far and are shallow (see Apple chargers for scale) but I could tell that before I purchased so it wasn’t a drawback to me - just something to be aware of! Very happy with my purchase.

The desk itself gets 5 stars, the fact that no hardware to put it together was included, gets 0 stars. The desk is spectacular, however. The wood species is beautiful, legs very sturdy and it was very easy to put together.

Nice desk for my make-shift home office. It’s sturdy and has clean lines. The color is a little lighter than I expected based on the picture, but still nice.

This desk is just perfect. It is solid and very rich feeling and sturdy. One of the drawers is a bit tight but I think I can fix that by loosening one of the pulls. It looks great in our living room and can serve as a desk or accent table in just about any room. Love the color too!

Beautiful desk!! I got the matte walnut. It is just the right size for a smaller space. Was easy to put together, only took 10 minutes. It took longer to get out of the packaging, which was very secure! The desk is solid wood except for the bottom of the drawers. The drawers are very small 11D x 16W x 2H

Perfect desk. Although it not being used as a desk but more of a piece of furniture. Looks high end. Love it.

Super retro-chic looking, perfect height to work from home, super sturdy, with gorgeous wood. I wish I would have gotten something just a few inches wider (and deeper) as fitting three monitors on it is really tight, but that's on me not them. My one tiny complaint would be that the drawers are smaller than you'd think, a standard 8 1/2 x 11 folder doesn't fit, but that's again on me, I knew they were small...

This is great desk - very elegant and sturdy. Very easy to assemble - you just need to screw in the legs. The drawers are good enough amount of storage and it's not too wide so it works for our space where it's set up in a widish passage between the living area and dining area.

Bought this to use as a bathroom vanity. The piece is very pretty and looks high quality for the cost! Only downside is that the drawers stick and are hard to open, but I put my makeup in containers on the top so I don't need to open them often

I absolutely love this desk. It's the perfect size for my office and it's such a show piece. The colors of the wood are so chic and beautiful. This is probably my favorite furniture purchase, as it looked even better in person than the pictures. My only complaint is that one of my drawers doesn't shut all the way. It pops open by about 3mm as though something is preventing it from staying closed. I wish there was a way to repair this, so if the manufacturer is reading this, please send some tips!

I’m very happy with this desk. I got it in walnut and it goes well with my other walnut furniture. The desk is sturdy and a comfortable place to work. The drawers don’t have a ton of space, but I knew that from the specs. I can see myself having this for a long time. Would recommend!

The desk itself is beautiful, wood is gorgeous and heavy. I was a bit disappointed upon assembly because my drawers are not aligned. The drawers were pre-assembled and installed in the desktop so it couldn't have been due to user error, it came from the factory like this. It's not bad enough to warrant a return, mostly because the size and weight of the desk makes that option unviable. The box for this desk was the most frustrating unwrapping experience I've ever had, so I can only imagine what a nightmare having to return it would be.It's just a bit frustrating to spend $400 on a gorgeous desk and then feel like you're settling for obvious imperfections. Instead of marveling at my awesome new desk, I instantly noticed and became fixated on the misaligned drawers. It will never look "clean" which is very frustrating. There's also a small spatter of white dots (paint??) on one of the drawers. Again, if exchanging it was an easy process I'd do it. Instead I feel forced to settle.So 1 star for factory assembly of the drawers, 5 stars for the desk itself. I'll be kind and give it a 4. The photos show the drawers in the fully closed position.

Very solid construction and extremely well packaged. Arrived in perfect condition. Very easy assembly and clear instructions. The drawers are already assembled which is very much appreciated. You just have to screw in the legs. I also appreciate that they include an anti-tipping kit. I havent installed it yet because I am still determining final placement but since it is very heavy it will make me feel safer with my toddler. The desk isnt quite what I hoped for but I think that is more on me than the desk, since these items were mentioned in the reviews. I got the matte walnut and the color is not what I imagined from the photos. It has a lighter, more unfinished look. It is also taller than a standard desk. I am tall so that is not a problem but I will need to get a different chair -- the guitar stool in the photo seemed to be the right height to me. Also the drawers are very shallow. They fit a laptop but barely, and not much else. I think this would be perfect for an entry way table but it is not ideal for the desk use I have in mind. So that being said, I wouldnt pick it again but I am not going to bother returning it. It is a beautiful, solid piece, just not quite what I was looking for.

Simple but nice-looking desk. It's sturdy so far. Packaging was very protective. -1 star because it was darker than expected.
Helpful Helpful 0
This desk came just as I imagined it. It looks great and is very sturdy. Like many other reviews mentioned, it is a little higher than other desks (but only an inch taller than other desks I was looking at), so you'll need a chair that adjusts to a tall height. Also, the drawers are a little sticky, but I anticipated that from the other reviews. The sticky drawers are the only reason I'm giving 4 stars.The chair in the picture is not tall enough; I am waiting on an adjustable office chair to come in.

Great desk! The drawers are a bit hard to open but otherwise no complaints! Love it!

It's very pretty and easy to assemble, but I should have thought more about ergonomics before buying. It's tall--the top is almost 32 inches. Even when I adjust my chair as high as it will go, with my feet off the floor, my wrists end up higher than my elbows when typing. I might have to buy a seat cushion and foot rest to achieve proper alignment. On the bright side, it's forcing me to sit up as straight as I can! For reference, I'm 5'6". As mentioned in other reviews, the drawer space is limited, but I can fit a laptop in one and a notebook and pens/markers in the other.

I got one that had faulty drawers (one didn't work, the other was not flat with the table top) - so I sent in pictures and they sent me another. The second one works just fine. I really like how solid and sturdy this is. The wood grain is beautiful. I also like that this was made in Jodhpur India - one of my favorite places.

I love the look and quality of this solid wood (hard to find) desk. I wish the drawers were bigger. It's also not large enough for the usual desk accessories, so after several spills, I bought some clear risers to put my monitor,speakers and various note pads--so that I could put the old school landline, pen/pencil holder and a spot for my stacks of papers underneath. Now, except for the drawers not sliding out easily all the way or being as deep and big as I'd like, it's perfect!

I purchased the "walnut" version, and I'm a bit disappointed in the quality. Overall, the desk does seem sturdy, but the drawers are not very functional (very difficult to open/close) and there's some damage to the desktop itself -- a series of scuff/scratch marks near the front, where it appears the finish was scratched off.

Actually very disappointed. For the price, very shabby construction; one drawer doesn't close all the way/flops open; legs wobbly - had to put felt bumpers under one leg to even out; pre-drilled holes for leg screws way off. Of course, once put together, not really feasible to take apart and return, not to mention the shipping costs. Definitely a miss that we are stuck with....

Purchased because I loved the look. Its a beautiful desk in terms of the look and wood, however, I had to request a replacement and when I received the replacement that also had problems. On both desks the drawers don't close and and on the first desk the tool wasn't included and the screw is not a standard size and then on the second desk the holes didn't line up to screw the legs in. Very disappointing. I they can figure the items out above the desk would be fantastic!

Legs were missing finish in multiple areas. Walnut finish was much darker than photos show more like a mahogany. Quality is so so.
