The item is a combination of solid wood and pressed fiber board. So the whole thing is stained in a very unnatural and rather orange tint. Think self tanner gone horribly wrong.
I was expecting something more like the photos albeit a little darker but this orange tint is really overpowering to me. The overall quality is nice considering the price point. The entire thing needs to be assembled down to the drawers so prepare for the task accordingly. The paint/veneer is actually VERY delicate, any bit of pressure leaves an indent which kind of defeats the purpose of a desk. Returning it, not satisfied with the color. Oh and there's a HUGE warning sticker inside of the drawer that is permanent, bigger than the palm of my hand.
This item is very cute as far as design goes and looks close in color to the photo online. My disappointment comes from the following:
1) my item came chipped on a very visible part of the desk (see photo below)
2) the placement of stickers is poorly designed and leaves residue and even scratched off some wood when I removed it (with my hands only; see photo below)
3) I was unable to properly install the bar that goes across the bottom part of the desk due to the fact that one of the sides was improperly manufactured and there was no thread for the screw to go in (see photo below)
4) one of the drawers won’t slide all the way back leaving slight unevenness when drawers are closed
If these issues did not occur for me, I would have given it 5 stars.
This item came well packaged. None of the items were chipped or missing, all pieces were there. I'm 5'2 and 140 with 2 kids. It took me about 10 minutes to unpack the desk, locate all the pieces, and review the instructions. It took me 32 minutes (with my son running in and out of the room) to assemble the desk. It is sturdy. Although light wood, it does not have a yellow or orange hue to it like most light woods usually do. The canning on the drawers is very subtle and not at all tacky. A regular chair or folding chair fits perfectly under the desk. Plently of leg room.
Phenomenal desk! This is the perfect desk for a sleek and minimalist look! The oak color and smooth finish have a clean and polished look. This sits in our upstairs loft area and ties together the kids play area and our work area perfectly. I love the color and how simple and elegant it looks and feels. The drawer slides easily and it cleans well too. It wasn’t too bad putting it together and it’s quite sturdy as well. Highly recommend.
