Powell Furniture Masterpiece Faux Mahogany Hunt Desk

I needed a nice looking table for my home office, which wouldn't turn my living room into something official "office-style" look
. I didn't need anything except for a desk where I can put my laptop on. No useless keyboard holders and shelves "for PC box". Just laptop table.
Then I saw this table on the site and loved it immediately. However, when they brought it finally (took an age, but that's OK), it was even better than o the picture! It took me about 15 minutes to assemble it alone. You immediately feel how solid all the materials are, and how well they fit together. I think the whole thing is real wood, or at least most of it, and it really feels like it.
This desk has VERY special finishing and "hand made" feel - I especially love dark gold insertions. And on the top it has 3 glass insertions which again look like gold hand-paint - just AMAZING.
The price, although seems high, is fair or probably even less than what I would expect for this piece-of-art of furniture.
The only con's I may need notice:
- if you need large drawer space for junk - this table is not for you. There is 3 drawers, but they're super small. Middle drawer can fit A4 paper sheets if needed, which is quite handy. Documents - yes, but that' it.
- Glass insertions on the top didn't fit exactly on right and left, so the surface won't be exactly flat. It may disturb your shoulders a little. I don't know is it a defect or something they intentionally did- perhaps to be able to remove insertions easier, I don't know.
- Do not buy a chair with handles, it won't fit. The idea is to rest your shoulders right on the desk sides - that's why it's made round. It is very convenient, given that your chair will fit in the middle - that's why you don't need handles for it
- If you plan to use this table in your bedroom, once you will receive it, you will understand that there is no way you will hide such a nice piece upstairs. So plan to use it in your living room or office - if you have one, NOT in bedroom. Just my opinion, anyway :)
