This desk has an elegantly rustic design, making it attractive and very classy. The chrome accented finishing is very whimsical and adds to the beauty of the desk. The color is also amazing and unique, which gives the desk an outstanding look. The finishing has been done perfectly, and it gives the desk a smooth texture.

The sturdiness of the desk is remarkable, and so is its durability which is attributed to by two things. The first thing is because of the high-quality paint which is resistant to peeling off, and secondly is the strong manufactured wood used in the desk’s construction, which additionally provides stability.

This desk is delivered in time with all the parts available and well labeled. The instructions provided for the assembly are also direct and easy to follow.


The packaging of the desk is not exactly great. One customer received her desk with a slightly damaged desktop, and it seemed to have happened or due to poor packaging. Also about the packaging, another customer received her desk with three damaged panels, and the box was intact, an implication that the damage happened due to poor packaging. The shipping is not any better, since one customer also received her desk with damages, but this time the box was also bloated.

The space between the top drawer and the lower one seems to be a little squeezed. Therefore, shutting the bottom drawer seems to be a hassle, and you need to lift the top one in order to do it perfectly. Otherwise, the bottom drawer will remain hanging.
