This desk looks great and is easy to assemble (about 30 minutes or so). The design allows for plenty of leg room and never feels cramped, as I've experienced with many designs in the past, yet it manages to fit in small spaces easily and elegantly . It smudges with ease, but this is a minor price to pay for such an aesthetically pleasing work space. Keep a box of Windex wipes next to it and you'll be set. Highly recommended for those with the desire for a small, efficient, and welcoming work station.
