For the past few years I’ve been using cheap IKEA desk that were hollow and warped. I didn’t want to go back to a cheap hollow table tops, so I decided to look for a solid wood desk.
After searching and searching for an affordable, but rustic/industrial design desk that had a solid wood top and this Kingstown Home Eastfield Writing Desk and took a couple weeks deciding if its what I wanted..but I ended up ordering one and was worried like crazy all week that it was going to be damaged.
Well I got it a couple weeks later by UPS and only damage to the desk was a little bit of scratches to one of the corners..no problem though..because its solid wood! I didn’t mind it. For me, it just added to the look of the desk. It also could be easily fixed.
You have to remember, this desk is VERY heavy. So you just have to accept that fact that it could arrive damaged. But this isn’t like a cheap hollow desk..its solid wood!!
I managed to assemble this all by myself and assembly was very easy..took about a half hour. everything is put together with bolts, washers and lock washers. Which I really like because it can easily be disassembled if you were moving.
They even included some foam rubber pads for the feet as well, so that was nice of them!
After using the desk for about a month now, I couldn’t be happier! Really love the rustic reclaimed look of the desktop, I have lots of room to work. I use it as a compute desk and you could easily fit two 27″ monitors or three 24″ monitors if you wanted to. I’m just using a single 24″ display with bookshelf speakers.
I added a Lite Source Kris desk lamp and with the warm light from the lamp reflecting on this warm color wood desk really feels cozy.
The wood is poplar, so its not a hardwood and it does dent very easy. I dropped something already and left a good size dent, but I put some water on it and used a clothes iron to raise the dent and you can’t even tell it was there. So just be cognitive of that.
I love the shelving as well..TON of room for storage. You can buy some fabric or wicker bins to use if you wanted it to look clean.
The description only says what the height is of the shelf, so I want to give you a more detailed dimensions.
The height for all 4 shelves are 11″ and the width is 12.25″
The width of of the area where you legs are is 28.75″ so plenty of room! Though my chair is a bit of a tight fit.
Overall, I am very happy and see using this desk for years to come!
