About six months into the pandemic, Strategist UK audience manager Rosie Percy decided she needed to find a desk. Beaten to the punch by desks on Gumtree and priced out of John Lewis, Wayfair, and La Redoute, Rosie took to Amazon to scout out a cheap (but nice-looking) desk she might be able to get in a pinch, and came across an option by German manufacturer Vasagle. It was a hit.
“The Vasagle desk was surprisingly simple to unpack and put together. The four pieces (two legs, one connecting beam, and the wooden top) came with super-simple instructions, a mini screwdriver (!), and even extra bolts,” she wrote. “With the help of my housemate, we were able to put it together in the 15 minutes before our next work calls.”
Rosie’s particular desk is still available (but not significantly discounted) – but we spied a similar desk by Vasagle at almost 40 percent off: £55, down from £90. 127 reviews mention that it’s easy to assemble (just like Rosie’s was), and it’s available for free delivery.
