Bush Furniture Saratoga L Shaped Computer Desk in Harvest Cherry : I ordered two desks, both came damaged. I

A little flimsy but nice desk. A little flimsy but nice desk. Took a few hours to ensemble.

The was so many pieces to deal with. Definitely had to have two guys working together to assemble it. Once assembled, i like the desk.

I bought the matching l-shape desk, bookcase, and file cabinet and am very pleased with my purchase. I get alot of compliments on my home office.

I work at home and got this specifically as my work desk. It is a good solid and sturdy desk. It arrives in two big packages and take two strong people to bring inside. The directions were easy to follow and took about a couple of hours to put together. I have been working on this desk for almost a week and really like it so far. I have a lot of desk space to use since it is l-shape desk. I have a wireless keyboard and did not install the keyboard holder that slides under the desk. It comes with two small drawers and three filing cabinets, which is plenty of storage for me. I did have to call the manufacture directly since one of the drawer handles came broken.

  • Great desk, excellent quality!
  • Great looking desk

It is very sturdy and very good quality. My husband put it together for me. My husband is very handy and it took him quite awhile to assemble. There are many, many, parts so this is not for the faint of heart to assemble. However, once done -it looks wonderful.

I ordered two desks, both came damaged. I ordered two desks, both came damaged. I kept because we needed the items and didn’t have time to wait for new desks.

The desk is gorgeous and very solid. It took my husband about 8 hours to put it together. We love it, it looks fantastic in our home office.

Item was nice finish, fairly simple to put together,although you should plan on about 3hrs. It has many different screw sizes which slows down assembly as you need to be sure your using the correct ones for each step. There are a couple missing instructions inside the manual, but you can figure it out from the photos. So far after 2 months of use i haven’t managed to scratch or dent it.

I would have rated this higher except for the fact that the original shipping did not include the bottoms for the smaller drawers. By the time they came there were problems with the rail screws and the two small drawers have never fit properly. Took way to long to assemble and the service to assemble the desk could not keep its scheduled appointment so i had to assemble it myself.

Beautiful furniture easy to assemble with a little oatience.

Nice desk but as other reviews have stated very time consuming in the assembly department. Had an issue with one of the drawers and had to screw different holes as there was no alignment. Also we did not do the keyboard tray as it would be in the wrong place as i set up in the corner not on a side. I also wish they did not put the part sticker on the finished side as it is hard to get those off and not make a mark in the finish as of course it is particle board with veneer finish. All in all nice desk, i also have the lateral filing cabinet and the 5 shelf bookshelf, only one of those are together right now.

Nice desk, though assembly extremely time consuming. Once assembled, the desk looks very nice, but if you plan on doing your own assembly, plan for a day with 2 people. Had a couple pieces that had to be reordered (which they shipped out quickly) due to defects, and some of the screws used seem a bit unsubstantial, but once the desk was finally together it looks good.

Good looking piece of furniture – complicated assembly. I bought two of these for a new office where thankfully we have a large and talented facilities department. They are still not happy with me over this purchase because they took roughly 18 man-hours to assemble both (i thought they’d be faster with the second one but not so much). In the end, i have two very attractive desks that one would assume cost much more money. One of the panels split along the fastener line and about a six inch piece broke off. It’s in a spot that is difficult to see unless you are below desk level, so it was much easier to just live with it than to re-live the assembly experience.

Very sturdy construction and it looks great.

Beautiful desk, the only issue i have is the. Beautiful desk, the only issue i have is the laminate overlay starts to chip where you lay your arms while typing.

It was a great desk it took a little while to out together.

Pretty fantastic desk, heavy and solid.

Whole lot of operate placing them together but truly worth it for $four hundred/desk. Went to get two far more and price tag experienced doubled. To substantially perform to double the price tag on you.

Nice piece, but had some dings in it from the transport.

Even acquire me two times to assemble it by myself, but the price i paid for this desk is quite excellence. For this selling price, i beleive that the desk has extra quality and luxurious that i can not uncover any where by. I have hugely recomendation to own it.

Way way too a lot of elements to assemble.

Desk arrived in a incredibly timely fashion and was effectively packaged. I did have a number of sections that need to have to be set to be assembled that took a long time. Desk look is the same as pictured.

    Classic, elegant, beautiful, and while time consuming, it’s super easy to assemble. I spent quiet some time debating on the saratoga managers desk, or the saratoga l-desk in this collection. I really wanted the pencil drawer and not the keyboard drawer, so i thought. While i wish the keyboard drawer could have been set up at a diagonal across both top pieces, and i am sure i could do it by drilling my own holes, i don’t mind it where it is, and i don’t miss the pencil drawer. The desk is taller than i thought it would be and would be too tall for me (i am only 5’5″) if it didn’t have the keyboard drawer. I also love the cord keepers that are attached, it comes with 3, i wish it had 6 but that’s just because i have a lot of corded things on the desk. It’s much bigger than i imagined it would be, which is nice because i use 2 full sized monitors and a laptop simultaneously. It has plenty of space for all of those and more. My office is roughly 10×10 and it fits the desk, 1 bookcase and the lateral file very nicely.

    As beautiful as it is challenging. . But not for the faint of heart if you dislike challenges, it was the most difficult furniture to assemble, it has 57 steps to complete with each step being more complicated than the last, but my amazing and talented husband put it all together and now the desk sits in our study/office in our beautiful new home.

      The desk is a nice color and design – but you get what you pay for. The quality was a bit disappointing. Since the boxes were delivered damaged, i am willing to believe the damage happened in transit. Unfortunately, the receiving dock did not inspect the boxes when they were delivered and did not note the damage on the bill of lading. Had the materials been higher quality, they might not have scratched and gouged so easily. The desk is not solid cherry wood – but neither is the price. If you buy this desk – be sure to check the boxes for damage when receiving them. They desk pieces are not packed so as to resist poor handling procedures.

    Great desk, excellent quality. As someone who doesn’t mind assembling furniture and isn’t overly picky this desk is a fantastic choice. For those that don’t like long and tedious work and are annoyed by the little things, i would rate this 4 stars instead of 5. Overall install time for me was about 5 hours. I’ve assembled a lot of my own furniture so for those with less experience it could take 6+ hours to complete. The build is extremely solid and the quality of the pieces is commercial quality and well worth the price. This desk is now apart of my home office and it looks extremely classy and is by far the centerpiece of the room. None of the pieces were damaged in transit, not even a scratch which speaks to how well it was packaged. For someone looking for an extremely high quality desk without paying 1k for it, this is a great go to. The only issues i have with the desk is that some of the connections aren’t clean without a little extra work.

    After using this desk for three years i am satisfied with it for the price i paid. After using this desk for three years i am satisfied with it for the price i paid. It has stayed in good condition even after one move. The exception is the trim around the desk top, it appears to be some kind of contact paper that is lifting along the front edge that comes in contact with your body from time to time as you move in and out in your chair. The company was also good to work with when the shipping company damaged the top they ended up sending me two complete tops with no questions asked. I would buy it again if i needed a good looking desk for a great price that would last me five or six years.

    Bought at garage sale for $35. We bought this desk for $35 at a garage sale. It is great for what we paid for it; but it has only been used a few months and the finish easily scratches off of it. I don’t know if this is because it is older or not. I would never pay hundreds for it. There were two for sale when i bought mine.

    Although the glue was rock solid and we had to run to town to get some glue, i’d still rate it excellent, i love it. We put all the parts in order around the room and used a small 1/4″ impact that you can set the torque on, speeds up time to assemble. The desk is lovely, it does seem to show fingerprints but i’ve been so busy filling and organizing it i haven’t had a chance to really worry about dusting, fingerprints, etc.

    The desk is everything i thought it would be. It came in 2 separate shipments and both were very heavy. It would be helpful if the directions had some words with it. You have to follow the directions exactly step by step and even then i had a couple of problems. I mounted the drawer hardware backwards thinking i was following the pictures. The fix was simple but irritating. The second was with the keyboard tray. The holes are pre-drilled for a couple of options and not clear which ones to use for which options. Again the fix was simple but would have been easier to fix when desk was not attached as when i originally attached the hard ware.

    This desk is no longer manufactured. I bought a floor sample from a retailer to get mine. I wanted three drawers for hanging folders and this was the only desk i could find that provided that functionality. Because of the l-shape i can use my computer on one section and easily turn in my chair to use the second section as a writing space, assuming i can keep it cleaned off.

      Beautiful desk, but a beast to assemble. With 54 wood components, 281 screws and bolts and over 100 brackets, rails, pegs, tacks & handles, this is a monster of a project that took two days to complete. But once finished, i felt a sense of accomplishment and pride and it looks very elegant in our home. It may appear a daunting task, but don’t be dismayed. All pieces and hardware are labeled with part numbers and the 65 page instruction booklet is easy to follow and divided into bite size steps. Moving the two 150 pound boxes into the house was the hardest part. Some hints on assembly: organize all the wooden pieces and the hardware by part number before you begin. To save your back, assemble the pieces on a table covered with a soft cloth. Do not lose any of the hardware pieces (screws, lock joints, etc). They do not give you any extras.

      I would drop it one star for being somewhat difficult to assemble but i love this desk, it will take several hours if not all day to assemble but when your done, it looks amazing and was not nearly as expensive as most comparable desks. One of the things i love about this desk is that you can use the full height of your drawers, some desks you can’t fill to the top, only 80%. Not this desk, designed very well and it seems very sturdy. Be warned, the laminate desk top will scratch very easily so if you want to protect the finish and have a scratch free desk either be careful or just get a top cover mat.

    Sometimes pictures just aren’t enough. If you don’t have patience for terrible instructions, stay away from this unit, or have it assembled by others. We had to redo at least three of the steps because the pictures were not clear, as figuring out which holes to put screws into and where to place pieces was very unclear. They force you to go back to the first page to cross reference part number shown as “a” for example in the picture, but you had to cross reference that to say “145556,” which was confusing in and of itself, not to mention that you had to leave the page you were on and then find out where you were in the process page by page. Another uncommon item was the fact that they sent exactly enough hardware to do the job, not a single extra screw or dowel, and barely enough of the provided glue. If you confused any screw (which wasn’t hard as most were similar in size, but maybe a mm length different) or dropped one, you were screwed (pun intended) and either had to go back and remove them from a prior step or take the chance on using the different size. The finished product was nice looking, but after four hours with two men assembling the desk thank the lord it was a decent desk.

    Creates the work environment for you. I wasn’t too sure about this desk when amazon upgraded my order to this desk as they ran out of the desk that i had ordered. This is a wonderful desk, looks, and is very sturdy. The assembly is a pain though, it took me all of my sunday to assemble. I had to request one of the parts and called bush customer service, and they shipped it by fedex overnight. This looks great for any office. The best part is the amount of table space you get. If you are used to working on a single table, you will love this upgrade. The cost is a bit high, but i would say it shows its price after you place it in your office.
