Desk set is great....Chair, not so much. When we received this desk set, I was amazed by how nice it looks and the quality is great. Both the desks and the hutch are absolutely beautiful. They are also huge and filled out my office nicely. For the size and workmanship, the value is phenomenal. However, the quality of the chair is just unacceptable. The chair has plastic casters, which is not a good choice for something so heavy. When we first got the chair, one of the plastic casters was shattered and we received a replacement, but could not remove the metal base of the caster that the plastic wheel broke off of. The replacement included the entire caster, metal base included, so we could not use it. We then received a completely new base for the chair, then found it was screwed together wrong and threw the chair completely off balance. We're having to take the entire chair base apart and reassemble it to balance it. In addition, the chair is not very comfortable.Having said all that, the shoddy workmanship of the chair does not detract from the beauty and great quality of the desk and hutch set itself. I would have still paid the same price for this set minus the chair. [...]
Wonderful campaign desk. This campaign desk is sturdy and conveniently holds pens and papers. It looks very good for such a moderate price. Biggest negatives include the fact that the wood has a pungent, acrid smell that transfers to any papers kept inside. Also, the removable wooden writing surface is not easily moved.
Well worth the price. After shopping around and reading review of competitors I was glad I purchased from this site! The quality and workmanship is excellent with all compartments nicely fitting. The only flaw was the nip pens that came with desk, both pens were badly constructed with paint missing on the writing instrument and both nips were broken.
Well worth the price. Well constructed with good hinges. The grain of the wood is nice and well polished. The various pigeon slots are great for different inks and other accessories. Overall an attractive design. The nib pens that came with the desk are not well made and both were broken upon arrival. I had researched the desk prior to purchasing and there were less costly ones available but all had poor reviews for the workmanship of the desk. This desk is well worth the price and will last as long as the owner wants it to.
