    • Not really sturdy but very elegant

      I use this as my computer station, along a long wall in the great room of our small house, totally opened to 180 degrees. (Not in the 90 degree angle shown in the photo). Wider than a typical bookcase, but narrower than a typical desk, my mac laptop plus table lamp fit on the desk portion easily, and the extending bookcase has a sculpture on the top, and some books, a candle, and my router and printer/fax below. The fragile part comes in the positioning of the unit. It takes one person to lift and support the desk portion, to open or close the bookcase portion, as the desk is supported by the bookcase. Since I imagine most people put it toghther, set it up to best fit their living space and just leave it that way, it would not be a problem unless it was frequently opened and closed. Truly a flexible, multi- position, attractive desk and display unit. I love it!

    • Cool desk

      This is a really cool desk if you need something that does not take up too much space. It is perfect in my small office. The only reason it does not get a 5 is because of the assembly. The design of the assembly process was very poorly done. The kit does not provide all of what you need. Some of the screws are the wrong length and you will need to buy different ones. Assemble with caution and pay VERY close attention...and buy new screws. If you do that you will be happy with the result.

    • Swing Out Desk/Bookshelf review

      The desk is nice and looks just as good and classic as the picture. It is nice to have a piece that can be discrete as a bookshelf when not in use. The issues I had with the piece was that it had one part broken when it arrived, but luckily was where a lip screwed into the top, so we were able to glue it on and did not affect functionality. the second was that it had a few small scratches upon arrival and when we were assembling, a small amount of the color came of on the edges; but all were small enough to correct with a stain pen, so we decided not to go through the hassle of returning. The last is that when swinging out the bottom to change into the "L" shaped desk, you have to hold the top or the whole piece moves. Again, it is a very nice piece and fits nicely in my formal living room as a "bookshelf" when I am not using it. I have it on a wall that is a side view when looking in the room. that is nice because the edge of the middle shelf hides my keyboard, mouse, and headset when not working.

    • Mostly made of MDF

      Disappointed - it can be quite difficult to ascertain the construction materials of furniture sold online, and despite my best efforts to avoid MDF, I was fooled by this product's description touting a 'solid rubberwood frame with veneers" but no mention of MDF. There are a few pieces of actual wood, though with some odd seams in them. At least 85% of this product by weight, however, is manufactured wood. It weighs a ton and the solid wood parts that are attached to the MDF don't seem particularly sturdy. I can't comment on assembly as I have put it back in the box for return.

    • Just as shown

      This does just what I wanted. I use it as a sewing table, b/c the storage underneath is perfect. I LOVE it and my boyfriend is totally jealous of it. He got a free table and offered it to me. I told him I was waiting to get this thing, showed him, and he was like, "yeah, it's way better." and it was when I got it too. I was able to put it together myself, although a couple parts were tricky. I didn't find the instructions difficult. It looks great, my only complaint is sometimes when I slide out the shelf, the stand piece slides a little too - and scrapes the hardwood. I'm getting a sanding block and some holders this weekend so this doesn't happen any more. Other than that, I love it. Please note, because it has to have a little leeway when you pivot the shelf, you can't put it flush in a corner. It has to have a little extra room.

    • Solid desk for my small home office

      I bought this desk in black for my small home office. I was looking for something that was light and airy but also solid since it's such a small room. This fit the bill in terms of size, style and function. I love how it folds in on itself - perfect since my office is tiny and when we have guests over, the futon will be pulled out and the desk can fold against the wall. Assembly was fairly easy - until the last step to assemble the swivel part. A couple of the screws were just a hair too long and poked through the top of the desk. I was able to hammer down the point and touch up with some furniture paint, but just something to be aware of - don't drill too deep! Also, the swivel took a few attempts before I was able to get the pieces to feel securely tightened. Once in place, I am happy with the final product.

    • Ok But Tough to Assemble.

      Like all 'espresso' MDF furniture products at Overstock, this one's darker than shown. But predictability helps when matching with another 'espresso' MDF piece I purchased here. You have to bring your brain when assembling this, because the parts might not be included, and because all the predrilled holes might not all be there once you do get the parts. Be sure to have a drill & starter bit handy. Eventually the pieces do go together, and the desk will probably it'll do it's job. I'd like to see castors to make the swing-out section manageable. With the small carpet protector buttons supplied, this feature will never work on carpet. Ultimately, the design is what I need, but I'll never buy 'espresso' MDF furniture again.

    • Love Love Love

      I really like the functionality of this desk. I have a small condo and the desk works perfect, it has a modern edge to it but functional. There was only one screw that made it difficult to put together, it was the main one too, but we got together!

    Questions & Answers

    Get your product questions answered right here.
    • Where exactly is the pivot point? In other words, when I place the unit tight against a corner will I still be able to swing the desk part in/out without hitting the wall, or does it need some clearance - how many inches and on which side/s (long side or short side or both)? Thank you.
