This desk looks better in its actual self than is shown in the pictures. Though it is not crafted from solid wood, one would easily mistake it for that. This is because it is pretty sturdy and high-quality. It is delivered in time, and it comes well packaged with all the parts available and properly labeled. The assembly process is easy, and though some customers had to borrow a hand, others had no problem putting it together on their own. Though the instructions are not that clear, you are made to lay out all the available parts before starting the process, hence making it less complicated.

The desk has small dimensions and, therefore, does not take up much space. This makes it easy to set it even in your teenage daughter’s or son’s small room to help her/him study. However, the fact that it is small does not make it less spacious. The desk has a lot of space, from the drawers to the exterior shelves, to the hutch and the top surface.

The charm of the desk is its high-quality paint used in its finishing. Even though the desk is not expensive at all, the glow of the paint will give you the impression that it is. The color choices are also great, and what is better is that there is a lot to choose from, and therefore, you purchase what you want, not what you find. The design of the desk also has a charm of its own. Though the style is simple, it is also elegant and makes a great addition to any home office, living room or maybe kid’s room.

Lastly, despite the many remarkable features of the desk and the high-quality material used in its construction, the desk is very affordable and will hardly leave a dent in your account.


In its actual self, the desk is a bit low, and one can mistake it for a kid’s desk. A little addition to its height would have been better, especially for tall customers.

Even though the assembly is not complicated, it can be way easier if the instructions are given with a little more detail. The instructions are almost all pictures with very few words, making it difficult to follow through especially by a newbie. Additionally, the assembly process takes a lot of time, and most customers took at least two hours to have it up and functional.

Lastly, the desk is a bit heavier than anticipated. First, it is delivered in a very heavy box, and secondly, moving it around after the assembly will need at least two people.

The desk could use a little improvement on the instructions and maybe the height. However, overall, it is functional, quite affordable, and is an instant classic.


This desk comes with a 4.4-star rating and impeccable reviews. This is because of its many amazing features. Its high-quality materials used in crafting it and the high-end paint used in its finishing which gives it an outstanding flair look. The many color options available for your choice is also another advantage. The desk is also sturdy and with a promising usability period.

Take a step towards having a classic, ergonomic, and expensive looking office by making that simple click.
