This desk is beautiful in person. It looks great and feels heavy and very sturdy. It fits all of my computer equipment with room to spare. The color and quality are very nice. I even ordered a second one for my daughter's room.
It's perfect! What I wanted as a puzzle table. Drawers for pieces and stationary. Not just a puzzle table...Holidays call for extra seating!

I had found the same exact one in my town for exactly one hundred dollars more. They wanted seventy five dollars to deliver 6 miles. I started looking online...spotted it through Ashley and looked not one picture further. I knew what I was getting and am tickled I got what I wanted at a great price with no delivery fees. Its perfect!
Quality made desk and delivery was on time and expected. One of the legs was broken and the company immediately shipped a new one that I received in less than a week! This was my first purchase with Ashley and I will continue to shop with them for my furniture needs.
I'm a little confused by all of the reviews stating that this is a 'solid wood' desk. In my mind, manufactured wood and real wood are 2 very different things. For the price of this desk and based on its description ("Made of veneers, wood and engineered wood"), I was expecting a larger percentage of real wood and less manufactured. This desk is very heavy and sturdy, but it feels and looks like hard, dense plastic (think resin), not wood. Mine arrived with a chipped and damaged corner so it has to go back, but because of the the plastic look and feel of it, I'd be returning it anyway. I'm not sure if it translates in the picture, but there's a weird, fake finish to the top of the desk and if you look at the picture of the damaged corner, there is no wood (or wood veneer) present. It's an attractive style and like I said, a sturdy, easy to assemble desk, but plastic furniture is a no for me.
We love this desk as it matches our living room end tables. The size is just right and it looks great. The only minor issue was the smell of the finish on the top was quite strong for the first week or so but otherwise is a great purchase.
