I love the look and size!
Christine from Kirbyville, TX – Verified Buyer
Only thing I would change is the depth of the hutch it is only 6 & 1/2 inches if they had added 3 more inches it would have been paper size and more functional. Also if you have a super large monitor like mine it won't fit to the back of the desk and so I loose that space too. Need to make center opening taller or adjustable. It is beautiful and well made, I am not sure of the materials as think that top may be composite but not paper covered like and inexpensive desk. Wood grain is etched into the material. Color is beautiful and will work in many decors. We had trouble getting the doors on top adjusted to stay closed, then husband added washers under the magnetic landing plates to make them come out more and that works great.
Problems with Assembly
jacqueline from saint cloud, MN – Verified Buyer
The desk is quite nice and we are happy with the product. It is a bit darker than it appears in the ads, but it is very good quality, We were very misled about the ease of assembly. We are an older couple and it was very heavy for us. We were referred to an assembly company not associated with Wayfair who never did show up, so it took us over a week to find someone locally to assist us with assembly. I'd have to weigh that downside in before I purchased from this company again.

Very Sturdy. Beautiful finish, great storage. File Cabinet could be a bit larger, but serves it's purpose. Overall, I'm happy with this product.

Took a while to put together and missing a few bolts but we just strategically placed the ones we had. It seems very sturdy and has a nice look to it.The one in the picture seems very tall but it shorter in reality.
great for kids room
Catherine from New Providence, NJ – Verified Buyer
Decent quality, not super heavy duty furniture, but great value for the price. Comes with wall anchor. Perfect for my sons room.
Chad from Painesville, OH – Verified Buyer
Admittedly, I had someone else build this desk for me, and they needed a drill to clean out some holes that were not clean. Also one of the doors does not close flush, but the gap is small. Otherwise this would be a 5 star item.
Quality assurance or control absent
Anka from New Jersey
Arts and Crafts Pedestal Desk made by Home Styles Furniture- what a horrible experience, quality below imagination, nothing fits, measurements are as if done by uneducated employees, where bolts should be are openings for screws. As you preside you will find out new "surprises" (no other way to tell at the beginning when you start putting desk together what will go wrong next) [...] Let me add that I am not an immature in construction, o boy if we keep accept that quality and treatment don't be surprise what comes our way. That desk with hutch is not even worth $200 of your money and no one to talk about price adjustment for no quality, not low quality, but lack of quality all together. [...]
Great quality desk
Jaclyn S. from Arizona
Very happy with the desk. It's very heavy but you can tell its a tough desk. Only problem was with some parts the wholes lined up and some of the holes don't. But good thing my husband is a handy person and had to drill new holes. Other than that greatttttt desk!!!
deeply flawed product
shay from Quincy, MA – Verified Buyer
If you can assemble this desk and hutch, you may end up with a nice piece of furniture. But you will need to be an expert handyman/woman to achieve this task. There were so many design flaws, with pre-drilled screw and dowel holes in the wrong places. In fact I had to drill a lot of new holes myself. One of the file drawer tracks was too short, it was the wrong one. It took me 14 arduous hours to piece this product together, and I am no novice when it comes to assembling furniture. [...]
Beautiful desk. some time to assemble
Sue, a shopper and mom from Morgantown, WV
One thing to note about this desk and other Homestyles Cottage Oak furniture is that the wood is quite a bit darker than appears online. For the price, this desk is great. Yes, it takes some time to do the assembly. I had already assembled the Cottage oak entertainment center by the time I got this, so I knew generally how these things get put together. Once you know how to do the cam locks, etc., it isn't that hard to do. The drawers can be difficult to do without a power drill however. The only issue I had was with the location of the pre-drilled holes for the drawer-front for the keyboard drawer. They work, but the drawer doesn't close properly. I need to re-drill it myself. But for the price, you end up with a nice desk that looks more expensive than it is. I've gotten the Cottage Oak end table, too and am happy with all the furniture.
