What is the top made from?
You can fill the corner chunk with Bondo and paint over it, if it is a painted or plastic melamine finish.
Melamine can be painted with Plastic Laminate (Formica) paint system (Rustoleum).
Wood putty can be purchased with color in it, if the missing chunk is wood.
Cover the area by building a row of cubby holes to store stuff in . Not only will it cover the problem , but you will get some extra storage !
Why didn't you return it?
