I purchased this desk in white. I was a little bit hesitant because I saw some negative reviews, but they were all in regard to the walnut so I thought I'd take a chance on the white. It is absolutely beautiful, it came in perfect condition, only required a tiny bit of assembly and was very very easy to put together. It has a clean mid century aesthetic which is exactly what I was looking for! I was very happy because the white of this desk is a true bright white, not creamy or off white at all. Another thing to note is that while I have this placed against a wall, it is fully finished all the way around so that if you wanted to place it in the middle of a room, not against a wall, you certainly could.

Arrived in perfect condition and exactly as pictured
I was very pleased with the condition the desk arrived. I had read previous reviews mentioning scratches, or issues with the drawers, but my desk arrived in perfect condition. It looked exactly like the picture. It is sturdy, and blends perfectly with the mid-century items in the room. The writing surface and drawers are a different material than the legs. As a result, the stain is ever so slightly more red for the top of the desk than the legs, but it looks good to me!
Beautiful piece of furniture for the price.
Beautiful piece of furniture for the price. This perfectly fit the mid-century modern look we were going for in my son's room. It did come with one slightly damaged drawer (hence the four stars), but my husband was able to fix it without too much hassle. The wood is a very pretty color, and the drawer pulls are sleek and comfortable in the hand. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Writing desk with no storage for writing paper.
Drawback is the size of the drawers. The side drawers do not allow storing or placing of documents larger than 8x10, anything 8.5 x11 is out of the question. Such small drawers in a "Writing desk" is contrary and therefore useless. You can place a notebook or extra paper in a horizontal position in the middle drawer but you loose space for pens, pencils, rulers and other miscellaneous. My mistake, I assumed the drawers of a writing desk would hold paper but found out only after assembly. Going to have to purchase something separate to keep extra paper, documents, note books etc. Other than not being able to fulfill the use of a writing desk, for the price it is seemingly well made and looks nice.
Cheap materials, poor value considering cost
My desk arrived with a broken drawer. It was advertized as high quality but is made of particle board. The covering over particle board is so thin that there was already a dent and scratches on it. It came with several special instructions for cleaning surface as that can be easily damaged as well with any kind of chemixal. Lastly, there are several holes in the furniture/deep depressions where the screws go that hold the desk together, Im taking 3 inches deep, the i side of these holes are not painted(ugly particle board) and the desk came with no plugs to make these eye sores more ascethetic.
