I looked at this desk and shelving set for several months before I decided to purchase. It is just as pretty in person as it looks in the pictures. The finish is rough (rustic) and would require a desk blotter if used for handwriting. Perfect for a computer desk. My issue is that 3 pieces were damaged. One of the notched corners was completely missing, one had broken off during shipping, and one is cracked. Costumer service was very helpful and worked diligently on getting a replacement for me. The new shelves have arrived. The set was fairly easy to assemble even with the lack of instructions.
I am very impressed with the desk and bookshelves. They are just as they appear on the photos. Only issue we had when building it is that we were missing one screw. Otherwise, we built the desk and shelves in two hours. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and would recommend both to anyone who is going with a rustic look.
I absolutely love this desk and bookcase set. The combination provides style and function. I was searching for something modern but not clunky and this fit the bill. I have plenty of shelving space for my paperwork and knick knacks. So glad I purchased when I did--two days later the set was out of stock.
A great addition to my scrapbook room. The bookcases on each side of the desk along one wall hold my printer, shredder, Cricut, inks in carousel, a small shelf for stapler, calculator, tape dispensers, and a multitude of other items. I'm still getting it organized, will add some decorative boxes to keep things looking nice. The Desk works great! I love the open shelves instead of drawers. I have two "bins" now that I put my extra small thing sin that I use frequently and want easy access too. It keeps the clutter off the top. Very sturdy and was easy to put together.
