by RowHouseRenter2016 Quality Simple Writing Desk
This is a solid desk with a beautiful finish that shows off the grain of the wood. (I got the Natural Brown finish.) The desk was delivered promptly and in perfect condition. Assembly was easy by myself using the L. L. Bean instructions plus both a straight ratcheting screwdriver and a 90-degree ratcheting screwdriver. I love the look of the Mission-style furniture, and this desk is a perfect size for a desktop computer (all-in-one), laptop, or tablet with room to write as well. The drawers are spacious and slide in and out easily. They are a little loose and can shift laterally, but I have no problem closing them completely. This desk is perfect for smaller spaces such as a corner or alcove of an apartment or row-house bedroom/office.

This is a wonderful desk, especially for a smaller space such as an apartment or row house. The natural brown wood finish is beautiful and timeless, and the construction seems solid. I love seeing the grain of the ash wood on top of the desk and inside the drawers. It was delivered quickly and was carefully packaged without damage. Assembly was straightforward, and the instructions were good. I assembled the desk myself on a wide carpet in my bedroom. Having both a straight ratcheting screwdriver and a 90 degree ratcheting screwdriver made the job easier. The trick is to proceed slowly and tighten the screws slowly and evenly all around the desk - like building houses in Monopoly! I didn't have any problems with the drawers closing fully, although they do shift laterally a little bit. I plan to use the desk for my desktop computer and as a writing surface.

The desk is lovely - spacious and easy pullout drawers. It took my son about 40 minutes to get it from the box and have it completely assembled for me.

Good general quality and design. One draw needs a lift of fit in completely like the other draw. It does not worry my, but may worry other customers as it is noticeable with the draw not going flush.

Rated 3 out of 5 by paultheretiree Nice. Drawers not correctly aligned.
Very nice overall quality. Solid. Nice finish. Probably would buy again.
The drawers do not go in all the way and it cheapens the look. The sliders must be misaligned as both drawers have the same problem. To get the drawers to close flush, I need to hold my hand underneath each drawer and slightly lift the bottom of each drawer to close it. If purchased locally I would ask for a replacement. Given the hassle of sending it back, I will keep it. Most of my wood furniture is Stickley, a very expensive line. On a cost basis, this desk is very well priced and doesn't look cheap. Thankful for plain old screws instead of some of those crazy fastener systems on some assemble it yourself furniture. Assembly time. 30 minutes.

We are pleased with the craftsmanship of this desk, it is sturdy, real wood with a lovely grain and some heft to it. It was easy to assemble, and would look good in any room.

I fell in love with this desk on line before I even bought it. When it arrived, I fell in love even more. I love its color, fits right in with the rest of my furniture, its sturdy, with enough work space and I have a feeling it will last me many , many,years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanLoverandShopper The best desk ever!
I just love this mission desk that I got in the light color. It goes perfectly in my den with the LLBean mission TV stand I already had. It provides a perfect work space for my computer and printer with room to spare. The finish and wood are such high quality, as expected from LLBean.
