West Elm Mid Century Desk Review
October 3, 2020
I purchased the West Elm Mid Century Desk in Acorn a few months ago and have gathered my thoughts on it after using it daily in my office. It’s always super hard to find reviews on West Elm products, and I get nervous to buy furniture online without reading reviews, so here’s a brief review for you with my thoughts on this desk!

This West Elm desk really encompasses the mid-century modern look I was going for and truly anchors the whole office. I love the large amount of desktop workspace it offers with 52″w x 24″d of space to use. One of my favorite aspects of this desk are its two deep drawers on the sides, enabling me to keep extra pens, paper clips, stapler, notebooks, and other office supplies hidden out of the way. The center thinner drawer is really unique too and I love how I can tuck away my planner and my most reached-for items neatly hidden away until I need to pull them out. These drawers are the main reason why I can maintain a very minimal and tidy workspace. The acorn color is really beautiful and adds the perfect amount of warmth to the otherwise neutral space.
This desk was definitely more money than I wanted to spend on a desk, and I really debated for months whether to pull the trigger or not. There are many more affordable desk options out there, so I really struggled with the price. At this price point, it would have been nice for the drawers to have a more sturdy feel to them (is it too much to ask for soft-close drawers too?), but it’s definitely not a deal breaker. Other than the drawers, the desk itself is sturdy and pretty well built. The shipping cost from West Elm is always a little painful, but at least it does come fully assembled and delivered into the exact room you need it. If you can catch it during a sale (which thankfully happens pretty often), your wallet will thank you!
Overall, I really love this midcentury modern desk and it’s been one of my all-time favorite purchases from West Elm! I’ve found it to be a worthy investment piece for my home and it really pulls my whole office look together, so for me, it was well worth it.
