I've been searching for a good desk and have yet to find such a trendy design for such a good price. This was pretty simple to assemble as long as you've got a basic tool kit. My only complaint is there was a warning lable sticker stuck to the desktop that was not simple to remove... have goo gone h...see moreof the reviewer's review

This desk looks great and was easy to put together. However, there was a sticker on the top of the desk warning against the desk tipping over. The sticker was really hard to remove and of course left a very sticky residue on the desk. I found this REALLY annoying to have to remove, and it took ab...see moreof the reviewer's review

I had my heart set on a more expensive version of this desk from another retailer. This desk filled my design needs and my budget. The only issue was the sticker they put on the top of the desk but my husband was able to remove it successfully.

Small desk, good value and decent quality

PROS: Stylish desk. The price is pretty reasonable compared to similar mid-century writing desks on other sites. Also the construction is decent. CONS: The desk is less deep than expected, but that's my fault for not laying newspapers on the ground in the exact measurements to picture it. My more ...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a beautiful, sturdy, good quality desk. However, the color does not match these pictures at all. The images depict a light, acorn color. The actual desk that arrived was a dark brown. Still a beautiful color, but it doesn't match my other furniture! On the bright side, it arrived undamaged a...see moreof the reviewer's review

This desk arrived with one of the drawers jammed in and off the rail. In order to fix it I had to break the front off, reassemble and glue. If I didn't think it would have been more of a pain to ship it back, I would have done that. I like how the desk looks, but the drawers stick. For some reason a...see moreof the reviewer's review

The first delivery was damaged in the box. The second delivery also had damage and a deep scratch. The quality of the craftsmanship is extremely poor. I bought several items in the Porter collection and every single one had issues. Not the shipment, but with the quality of the item. Putting the desk...see moreof the reviewer's review

I purchased this desk because I loved the look of it. Unfortunately, it arrived damaged with a manufacturer defect. One of the drawers had been improperly assembled by the manufacturer and the wood had torn into two pieces. The drawer was also just shoved in, rather than put on the rollers, so I wou...see moreof the reviewer's review
