This is a great ladder desk. The red color brightens the room. We have an IMac and it fits perfectly. Printer fits great on bottom shelf. Great space saver.

The item is shorter in height than I expected. The color is definitely a rich shade of red. As for assembly, I would agree with the recommendation of using two people. As for the quality, one of the shelves - shelf O, had the holes erroneously drilled. I made it work by adjusting the position and angle. This defect didn't effect the stability of the unit once it was fully assembled. When assembling, follow the pictured instructions carefully; pay attention to the positioning of the boards and ensure use of the correct hardware. Tools needed - a flathead and a Phillips screwdriver. It took two hours to assemble.
This beautiful desk is a steal at only $200! But please gather a few friends to help you put this one together! The instructions on putting it together could have been better.. But since I put this beauty together, I have not had a single regret on my purchase!
The item came in a box that was beat up and caused damage to a few of the shelves. However the thing that irritated me the most was the fact that not all of the parts came that were needed to connect the desk between the to bookends. The boards (c and d) didn't have the right holes cute in them to connect the center, as I said before I was unable to connect the desk section or the shelves above or below the desk. This really disappointed me as I have gotten items from Overstock that worked out great. I will think twice on which items I'm willing to take a chance on in the future.

I ordered this desk because I liked the look of it, but I have never had a worse experience with a company before. When they sent it the first time, the packaging was so terrible that more than half the parts were broken and unusable. I called to get replacement parts and received most just fine, but 1 was still broken. Then they sent me the wrong piece. Even though I have called steadily the last 3 MONTHS, I still have not received the final piece I need to make the desk. I DO NOT recommend ordering anything from this company, as you may never receive what you ask for.
Color is rich and beautiful, however, this piece belong in a small space like a bedroom or dorm room. The products came with many pieces and one piece was broken in halves. We managed to construct it and conceal the defect until we can contact the company as they are closed on weekends. Overall, it's a nice piece, I just recommend they introduce bigger/taller sizes.
In theory this should have been an ok desk/bookcase. While it has the potential to look ok and be useful, it arrived with a missing shelf and two other damaged shelves. The bookcase in its entirety is also smaller than you would expect. I know the measurements are listed but this thing is sized for a child. As of the date of this review (over a month from receiving the item), I am still waiting on replacement parts, etc. so that it can be put together all the way and be somewhat useful. I would not recommend purchasing this item.
I was really excited about this desk because I really wanted to add some color to my open living space. The box arrived severly damaged which made me a litte nervous. I had to enlist a friend to help me put it together because I am not handy and impatient and the instructions were "IKEA-like" with only drawings. I would have never been able to accomplish it alone. There were a few chips on some of the pieces of wood, but luckily on the bottom of shelves or the drawer's bottom so they are not visible. Once together it looks amazing!!! I paired it with a really cool chair and now the area is one of my favorite spaces in my home. I have gotten rave reviews from friendsand family about how awesome it looks!!
The finish doesn't chip and the main desk part is sturdy enough to hold a full sized Mac desktop. The shelves are sturdy enough to hold several books and items. My only complaint is...after you put it together, you really don't want to move it unless you take the whole thing apart. It's very difficult to move together as one piece, it took three people to make sure it didn't fall apart.
I put the whole desk together while watching a movie. Intructions were simple and straight forward. Mounting the desk to the wall was a bit more challenging but I succeeded and I do not consider myself to be exceptionally handy. They desk is gorgeous and has been working very well for me.
We purchased this desk and shelf unit for my son's room. It is not as tall as we would have liked, yet has good display space on the shelves for book and knick-knacks. He uses it for homework and studying and is comfortable sitting at it. It took 2 people to assemble and all of the parts were included. We are are happy with its assembly, style and function.
I should have read some of the other reviews more thoroughly and taken them to heart. I, too, had similar issues with manufacturing defects. Boards C & D were milled improperly. Luckily, I opened the box carefully thinking I may have to return it if there were to be an issue. Thankfully, I listened to my intuition. I called Overstock, and the customer service representative was very helpful. He let me know he was unable to send replacement parts - something to do with the manufacturer - so I decided to return it - and he was very helpful in getting that all sorted. The only real inconvenience was trying to pack up the beast of a box once again. I have had great experiences through the years with Overstock - but this seems to be a common manufacturing issue. Overstock should remove this item to prevent any further dissatisfaction.
Well this desk had a lot of potential, but is still giving me a headache. Apart from the time consuming construction; this piece required to me google search the manual, purchase pieces that were not found in the packaging including replacement cams because the ones provided were super cheap and the desk is still not coming together like it should. I'm highly disappointed in the functionality of this product although it looks ok. I'm still figuring a way to salvage the many atrocities that are this desk.
