      This desk is similar to the photos and looks Forest with my other furniture. Only draw back is that the desk portion is a bit small. I expected it not to be very big but if it was only an inch or two longer could properly work on my laptop on this desk. More for decoration rather than a work desk

    • A great desk, once assembled

      Option: White

      I bought this as a bookshelf/desk for a tight space in my room and love it! Since it stands at about 6 ft tall, I had to assemble it in an open space and then scoot it to the corner of my room, but I was able to do it all on my own! What I couldn't tell from the picture (although it is visible if you look closely) is that the side pieces are actually two planks you screw together. I wish it was one seamless plank, but am assuming for shipping the manufacturer wanted to make sure nothing would break in transit. And it comes with these little stickers that look like the wood grain to put over the screws, but they are a little finicky. Also, read the directions carefully. While they're pretty straightforward with diagrams, I had to unscrew several pieces when I realized I had them facing the wrong way. This also weakened the stickers when I had to pull them off and on again. Overall I'm so satisfied with the desk! It's sturdy and stylish--what else could you ask for?!

      I purchased this for my daughter's room. It's cute and love the additional shelves, however the work space on the desk is small. It big enough to hold a laptop, but that's about it. It definitely leans so make sure you have a level spot to put it. a

      I have a small bedroom with a lot of white furniture and wanted to add a desk. I needed something to complement the white, but really didn't want to add another all white piece. This leaning writing desk was perfect with it's grey sides and white shelves. It blends seamlessly with the other bedroom furniture. Assembly was very easy and I have enjoyed the shelves and drawers for storage. It takes up a very small footprint in the room as well and is easy to move to locate to another area. Highly recommend.

      I really like the Carson two tone lean desk but it was missing some wooden screw and it made the installation very hard.

      These are really nice. They have a small footprint fitting nicely in a small bedroom but providing perfect desk and shelf space for my school age children to work at. The mesh swivel chairs sold by Overstock are a great chair to use with this. The desk is of high quality. Was a bit tricky to put together. But well worth it.

      Man, this thing is a great value, and such a great way to optimize our small space in our small NY apartment! Fully functional as a desk, shelf, or anything inbetween. It is high quality. There are quite a few small-ish pieces, so assembly took a little while, and the instructions were somewhat wanting, but overall it came together in a snap. Looks great and is a very solid piece!

      The finished product is so nice!!! It's compact and offers plenty of workable desk space. The assembly seemed impossible at first but once we really focused on the piece images (some pieces look very similar but their completely different sizes) it went smoothly. Pay close attention to "front" and "back" sides of boards. Once you get to the final steps there isn't a recommended order of operations... for example, you can't get the top wooden board in if all the shelves are in tight so pay attention to stuff like that too.

      Such a good use of space. The look and sleekness of this desk are perfect for small spaces. It will take some time to put together but it's worth it when it's done. I would buy this one again. I'm actually thinking about buying it for my daughter as well. You get your money worth with this one. :)

      Easy to assemble. My kids and I have enjoyed a great time setting up the desk. It looks exactly as the “see in your room” feature showed me. Very convenient, modern, easy and lightly to move. Just a little difference in the color showed on the website. Mine is gray and it looks a little bit darker.

      This is a very cute desk. Very sturdy! Placed felt pads on the back when set against wall. Took awhile to put together, the hardware wasn’t labeled and the pieces had inked letters some not legible. Having two people very helpful.

      I thought the ladder desk would be a smallish stylish personal desk. I have built countless pieces to date. I found the instructions to be unclear and the illustrations even harder to figure. When all the pieces were finally fitted together the feet were backwards! Cannot use the desk!

      The hardest part is building the desk. There are many pieces to put together and a lot of screws/bolts. Once you get everything together the desk was very nice and looks great in my space.

      This shelf takes about 2 hours to assemble. Some of the drawings are a bit tricky on the assembly instructions. Make sure to assemble the shelves pointing down. I would suggest building with a second person as the leg attachment to the shelves is very hard with one person. I do like the fit in my space and the color is good. I am using in a small space Airbnb to provide a work space for travelers.

      I love this desk. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it because I’ve been showing it to everyone. It fits perfectly in the alcove that is my office in my new house and the design allows for vertical storage, which I love. There is no dead space and I can decorate the shelves with heavier or lighter items as needed.
