This was super easy to put together (maybe 30mins total) and it. Although ups did not bring this to my door, this was super easy to put together (maybe 30mins total) and it looks really good. It’s big enough for 2 tidy minimal people but perfect for one person to spread out.
Good quality, easy to assembly, looks great. May be impractical depending on use. . Heavy, but easy to put together. You need two people for assembly and movement. There is a large scuff mark on the counter, likely as the result of rubbing during transportation. I can forgive this, though, since i had it delivered through amazon. The desk has a cable hole, but it is really useless for computers unless you can get the monitor to fit under the counter, or you don’t mind the monitor in your face. There is only 12″ inches clear from the underside of the counter to the top of the desk. This is perfect for a letter-sized three ring binder standing upright.
The best piece of furniture i have ever purchased for the price. If your looking good quality reception counter/desk with out drooping 1000 bucks. I’ve been in business for 24 years my last counter had just become out dated. I’m picky when it comes to ascetics and functionality. I’m a small business own i have to watch my budget. Since i could afford this reception counter i was able to buy some accessories, matching file cabinet and under counter file shelf organizer. I was fortunate that it was delivered to the second floor by stairs. No dings, scratches, it was in perfect condition when removed from the box. This was the free shipping through amazon. It does take a couple of people to put it together, it’s lettered so matching opposites were fairly easy. If your not much of a handyman or woman, i would suggest hiring one usually around 50. 00 or so to get it assembled correctly and in a timely manor.
The only reason i’m not going for 5 stars is because the top section really cuts off the light – maybe its just the specific conditions in our office – i’ll need to get a light for under the counter to make the work space usable. Other than that, its perfect really.

The desk is good quality and assembly was easy enough. One thing to keep in mind is that it is really heavy. The truck driver’s paperwork said it was just over 200 lbs. But the driver thought it was even heavier than that. You will need at least two people to handle the box and two people to assemble the desk. There was one thing that had me confused for a minute or two. The large panel was labeled “j” but it should have been labeled “l”. After i noticed that two panels were labeled “j” i was able figure it out.
Came broken by freight company. Amazon partner shipped a brand new one instantly – no questions asked.
I cannot believe this piece came in a box (a very heavy one at that). Take it step by step and in about an hour you will have a great looking reception desk. Came with extra hardware that i did not need.
Great size, sturdy and totally great for the money.
Excellent, the color, the size everything is as the seller describes, fit good in our reception area, and it is half price we planned to invest.
