    Great little desk

    from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer

    I am using this desk as a vanity table. It is the perfect size for my purposes. It was shipped quickly, however when I opened it, I noticed there was some minor cosmetic damage to one of the legs. That is likely not the designer or wayfair's fault. The assembly instructions were easy to follow, and this was really easy to put together. I was pleased to discover that the drawer comes preassambled in this piece as well. Great item!

    Good Desk

    from Washington, DC – Verified Buyer

    Very simple desk. Just what I needed to get through grad school. Its easy to set up, it even had one part of it broken upon arrival that I easily fixed and continued on to assemble. Overall, I think it is great for the price. Small, light, sturdy, easy to match. I would recommend for anyone who is seeking a desk for a short term period or for low use.

    office manager

    from VT – Verified Buyer

    The desk was easy to put together and looks just as good as shown in the photo. It works perfectly for our needs as an extra work station in a tight space. Keep in mind that it is not heavy so would not work if you need something that will be holding a lot of weight. It was a good purchase

    This is as basic as you get. I've ordered lots of these - they are just fine. You have to assemble them and they are made from pressed wood with laminate. Pretty basic but totally functional and has a nice clean look.

    cheap and chic

    from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer

    Exactly what I needed. It is a very lightweight (cheaper material) desk, but it looks great in my office. It has a dark sleek look and way less expensive than something similar from Pottery Barn. I would recommend this item.
