Small, efficient, high quality desk.
Venator from Nashua, NH – Verified Buyer
I bought this small secretary desk to use as a work station for centralizing bill-paying and other commitments, and managing my daily schedule. It's perfect for that, and it fits in a small corner and out of the way. The hinges that operate the writing surface are pretty amazing; rugged and reliable, yet unobtrusive, and they easily hold the weight of books and resting elbows when I'm writing out checks, etc. In fact, I found my desk will support over 30 lbs. in the center of the writing surface with no strain on the hinges and no tipping of the desk. It may hold more weight; I didn't test the limits. The inside area is large enough to keep two stacks of 8" x 10" folders plus calculator, stapler, calendar, reading glasses, etc. neatly available for use. There is a shelf that holds even more stuff. The drawer is another large storage area. The desk is constructed of solid hardwood, no veneers, with a very good fit and finish. It arrived very well packaged and protected, with excellent assembly instructions. I found it very easy to assemble the four legs and two stringers and drawer knobs. I am completely satisfied with the functionality, quality and price of this desk.
At long last

I looked everywhere for a nice looking, petite secretary desk with a drop down front. I was willing to pay a lot more but this one fit the bill perfectly. Only 25 wide and only 14 deep with the desk up. And yet I can sit there perfectly comfortably at my laptop and there's plenty of room for my long legs. And when I'm done working, the laptop folds right into the desk no prob. It would be nice to have a cord hole in the back, but then I'd just have to look at a cord.. I prefer to wrap the chord up and store it in the desk with the laptop, and not destroy the desk's nice classic lines. It's cute, it's reasonably well made in solid wood, in the US., the oak stain matches the floors in my apartment beautifully. I love it. It was very reasonably priced, it arrived within a few days, free shipping, no damages, and it was a snap to assemble. Plus it's sturdy! A home run. Thanks Wayfair, I'll definitely be back.
Classy Little Desk
Jane from West Allis, WI – Verified Buyer
This was my first purchase from Wayfair. I was looking for a small desk to put in my basement to store all of the mail/paperwork that accumulates on my kitchen counter. Based on the previous reviews, I took a gamble and ordered this desk in chestnut. It arrived within 2 days using regular shipping. I assembled it myself in about 20 minutes; did not have any issues with the screw holes not lining up. The only small problem with mine was that one of the hinges that holds the flip-down top was out upon arrival. Not a big deal though--all I did was put it back in place and it is as good as new. I would definitely recommend this desk to others. So cute and plenty of room for my purpose. So pleased!!! Now I have the dilemma of what kind of chair/stool I want to use. Back to Wayfair I go.
Roxanne from Hopewell Junction, NY – Verified Buyer
I had been looking for a desk to fit a small space in my kitchen for a couple of years, and after seeing a TV commercial for Wayfair, thought I would give it a try. And lo and behold. It is so convenient for me now, to have my essential papers and laptop at arms reach. Yes, you need to assemble, but it's not hard. Recommend you put a couple of rubber bumpers at the inside corners of top to cushion the closure of the desk. You don't want wood slamming on wood. Fair price too.
Just As Described!
Nancy from St. Augustine, FL – Verified Buyer
I searched several days for the right "little writing desk" for an area in my dining room as opposed to our computer/library. I wanted something that would blend in with my dark wood china closet, dining table & chairs without being conspicuous. It does just that! Now I can tend to writing out bills, & other personal mail right where "the action is!" Love the Shaker style & especially the fact that it is made of wood.
Great small desk
Robert from Mahwah, NJ – Verified Buyer
A great small desk with a great look and finish. No problem supporting the weight of a laptop computer. The only fault is that the hinge pins keep slipping out of the hinges. It is easy enough to push them back in but it is an annoyance, otherwise very nice desk.
Great products, just as pictured!
Joan from Southampton, NJ – Verified Buyer
Both the shaker desk and the hunter chair and ottoman were exactly as pictured, delivery was excellant and both products are happily living in my home! Would and have recommended Wayfair to others. The desk was the size I needed for my kitchen/dining area. The Hunter chair is fabulous, comfortable, well made and was just what I wanted!!
Super Little Desk
The Editor from New York
I love this little desk that fits perfectly in an otherwise odd and unused space in my bedroom. It is now my entire home office! Wood quality quite nice. Assembly relatively easy - did myself in 30 minutes - though one hole was a few millimeters off and it took a little work to last piece squeezed in. Draw slide not 100% perfect; I think we need to sand one runner. But nothing that can't be fixed. Great value. One note: Desk does tip easily with pressure on drop-down leaf since it is so little, so if kids are a concern, probably needs one of those wall anchors.
Great little desk
Cindy from Saint Louis, MO – Verified Buyer
I was looking for a small desk for my dining room. I needed a place to keep my ipad and all of the mail, coupons, pictures etc. that always seemed to gravitate to my kitchen counters. I found this desk and liked what I read in the reviews. I ordered it received it in just a few days. It's made of real wood and it's very sturdy. It was a breeze to put together. It's the perfect size and looks great with my antique dining room furniture. I am very happy with my purchase.
Right size, right desk
Paul from Washington, DC – Verified Buyer
I've always wanted a writer's desk because to control my tendency to use desk space as filling space. the desk is terrific, solid, and tasteful. It makes you want to sit down at it and get things done. Well worth the price and an item I tend on using as my go to work station for a long time.
