“Hi, I am interested in purchasing this desk with either the Kartell Louis Ghost chair or the Kartell Victoria Ghost dinning chair. I want to be able to fit the chair underneath the desk. So, which chair would be suitable for this desk?” asked by Liam

"Hello Liam, both chairs will actually fit underneath the desk if you were to push them all the way in. The Kartell Louis Ghost chair would be tight, but it will fit." Kelsey from Wayfair


“Hi, is the back of the desk finished?” asked by Marie

"Hi Marie, yes, the back of the desk is finished." Nikki from Wayfair


“Hi, do the drawers have glides?” asked by Sandra

"Hi Sandra, yes, the drawers have glides." Nikki from Wayfair

Cheaply made

Anynomous from Newport Beach, CA

I was told this is a 14 coat high gloss enamel and it would be very durable... it is not. It scratches so easy and chips even easier.
The fumes from the China produced product lasted for weeks.
I called JA customer service, they did not stand by their product.
It looks pretty, but as long as you don't plan to use it much, because it won't hold up.

Knob issue

I think the quality was good and it is everything I expected it to be. The delivery was on time and it seems durable except the knob broke and needs repaired.
