Short an sweet: the desk arrived in short order, it was easy to put together, it is solid and strong, functional, and beautiful to look at.
I am very pleased with it.

Since I have never ordered furniture on line, I was hesitant to order this desk. But it is sturdy, well built, easy to assemble. Exactly what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by violet1 nice piece of furniture
easy to put together, fits nicely into space. Was able to do it myself & I am not very handy with tools. Slight difficulty lining up holes to secure foot rail; would recommend a ruler or tape to help insure screws go into holes. Drawers slide easily. A good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catokitty Very attractive desk.
I wanted a Mission-style small desk/work table to coordinate with larger pieces - this is a very handsome and substantial piece, higher quality than I've had with other mail order furniture. I chose the "light" Mission which is close to a warm cherry finish. I assembled it with a Phillips screwdriver and mallet in about 1 hour. One screw hole didn't line up perfectly so I inserted screw partway first to slightly enlarge the one that was off - worked fine. It's heavy so you might want a helper to turn it over. Work on a thick rug; it helps in moving it around.

My Mission Work Desk arrived quickly and in fine shape. The instructions were clear and well ordered. The Desk and other Mission furniture that I ordered was very well constructed with solid wood and a nice lacquer finish.
The fit and finish are excellent. I'm very pleased. and hope to order another piece sometime this year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve28 looks good
A nice looking quality work desk. Took me about 30 minutes to assemble. Other than that it fits perfect in a small bedroom or study.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXBugmom Great Desk!
Received my desk yesterday. Had it put together in about 30 minutes by myself. No problems with holes not being in the right places as mentioned in previous reviews. Simple to put together. Beautiful. We love it! (The color is slightly lighter than the "dark mission" pieces we have purchased in the past, so keep that in mind if you are trying to match with older pieces.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatCharacter A desk with character
I bought this desk from my son's bedroom so he has a reasonable work surface to do his homework. The desk looks great and has a large work surface to spread out. There are two large drawers on the front of the desk to hold things so the surface is neat and clean for the laptop etc. My son really likes how it looks in his room. It has changed the whole look and feel and will be something he can use for many years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kbryan954 Nice desk, small setup issues (sticking drawer)
This is a very nice desk, very solid like the rest of my Mission furniture, and a nice match. I wish LL Bean still sold the chair that used to be in the photos of the desk, I had a hard time finding something that looked good with it.
Assembly was straightforward, but one of the drawers was sticking so badly it could barely be opened. I am surprised Quality Control did not catch that before shipping as the drawer is shipped in place and would not slide out. It appeared the the drawer slides had gotten damp and expanded/warped.
Of course, LL Bean offered to have me return it for a new item, but really, it was an awfully large item to consider returning. We sanded the drawer for about 30 minutes and the drawer is functioning fine.
