Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bought two bought two of these and place them to make a three corner arrangement for home music studio.they are solid and cheap. (cheap in a good way!) 16 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Basic Dexter desk. Good sturdy basic shape desk. No drawer, however matching pieces available if needed. Quite large, bought in clearance as box damaged. Husband and son (10) assembled easily. Bought for son who wanted decent work space for homework and artwork. He is deIighted with it, slight pinky tone to colour but nothing overly feminine. Solid design. Teamed with black swivel seat and grey metallic lamp. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely desk For a value product I was really impressed. I've moved into my first home and wanted a simple desk and this fit my needs perfectly. I installed this with someone else helping me and the instructions were straightforward, and it doesn't look like a cheap desk. I've since ordered the bookcase and hope to get the rest of the set to complete my study. 09 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly good value This desk has a simple but strong construction coupled with a good design. The material seems to be melamine bonded to particle board rather than MDF. However, it is still good value and warrants 5 stars. 13 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful basic desk Very pleased with this desk it fits the space perfectly and was easy to assemble. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect size Easy to assemble by two people, perfect size and material is practical and looks far more expensive than it cost. 17 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Neat wee desk! My partner & I bought this to replace a big old desk & we love it. I was surprised at how affordable this was. The finish is lovely & seems much more expensive than it is. It was very easy to build, & I managed to do so by myself. It's not as sturdy as the one it replaced but it certainly holds the computer & accessories safely & with ease. It's a classy looking desk & we're very pleased. 13 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Very pleased with the quality and finish of this 'budget' range, exceeded expectations in that respect. I bought the low bookcase, tall bookcase and desk and all were easily assembled. The tall bookcase recommends two to assemble and I would agree with that. I did manage it alone but struggled a little. The low bookcase and desk were easily assembled by one. Would definitely recommend this range for low cost and good quality for price 23 June 2014
