This design is genius! I plan on buying additional matching pieces in this product line. I love the color, style, quality, and simplicity of assembly. I read others reviews that spoke of a smell. I noticed no smell at all. I was worried when the box was delivered because it looked like a truck had run over it. There were tire marks on the box and the box was torn and smashed in numerous areas. But when I opened the box, I found that this desk was packaged very well. It had been double boxed and the desk inside was not damaged. Very good packing!!!

I absolutely love the look and construction of the desk. It has a very unique look and quite a clever design and assembly. On these facts I would have given it 5 stars. However, the vertical back portion of the desk that was shipped was either the incorrect version for this model or it was mismade. It clearly did not match the design as shown in the assembly manual. As such, the interior legs will not fit into the desk back and consequently unable to assemble the shelfs. The desk is still usable, very comfortable, and does give more leg room than if the interior legs had been installed. I'm pleased with the purchase overall but disappointed at the apparent manufacturing or packing error.
The desk is wonderful, I love it. Very easy to assemble (5-6 minutes, NO TOOLS, just 2 people required), ergonomic and looking simple, but modern. The ONLY thing that bothered us was the smell of the wood - although we kept the pieces in the garage to air out (4-5 days) before we brought it in and assmbled it, the smell lingered for another 4-5 days and we had to even open the window (30-35 degrees outside!). I think it was the lacquer that was used for finishing the product, but nowadays there are stains that are more eco friendly!
