Gorgeous, unique sputnik chair with bark cloth banana leaf print seat. I've moved and no longer have the room for it. Desk is a heavy, solid, well made piece of furniture.
Very clean inside and out. A couple of very small nails are poked through on the edge of shelves but does not hinder use in any way. Desk is finished in back and may be placed in room accordingly. All drawers are in great functioning order. I have used USHIP and received my merchandise just fine.Please note, they're are a couple of cosmetic flaws on the bottom and middle shelf. On the bottom a nail head appears to have been cut but the base of the nail remain. On the middle shelf a nail head was removed and in the process a small chip in the formica was made. These are strictly cosmetic, small blemishes that do not distract from the overall beauty of the piece. They are not very noticable. The photos were taken relatively close up to show the blemishes.
Also, a stain appears (darkening the grass cloth slightly, see photo, middle back) on one section of the grass cloth material covering the back side of the desk. It maybe possible to remove the stain with a cloth and warm water or mild cleaning solution but I have not tried and a furniture expert would be able to give expert advise. None of the flaws compromise the Beauty, quality or durability of the desk!
It is extremely sturdy and very, very well made. This is a heavy piece. If you would like to use your own shipper or something like USHIP you are welcomed to do that and it could be a rather economical way to go.
