  • Elegant desk
    Verified Purchase

    Practical and looks high-end. The only challenge is that the assembly instructions are not well-written and somewhat unclear. For that reason, it is 4-star rather than 5.

  • Pretty piece, ok desk
    Verified Purchase

    Its very pretty but I dont use it as a desk as much as I had planned. Its not quite as comfortable to use it that way as I expected, but still great storage and looks nice.

    This is a very nice product. However, the assembly took quite a while. All of the holes lined up correctly but there were a lot of parts. It was still a good value for the money.

  • Desk of a million pieces comes together well.
    Verified Purchase

    I don't think I have ever received a box that had as many pieces and/or hardware as this desk/bookcase. I opened the instructions and one of the only sentences on the page was that two people are necessary for assembly. I planned on assembling the piece alone because I live alone -- I wish it had said that on the website! All that being said, three evenings later I had the bookcase/desk put together and it works well. All of the drilled holes and the hardware do not match perfectly but they match well enough and any screws that don't go all the way into their place are not visible. The piece is sturdy. I would only recommend this to a friend if I told him/her about the building process, and maybe I would offer an experienced hand as well.

  • good for a small space
    Verified Purchase

    We got this for my teen's room, because we needed to organize a study area in a small space. This will do the trick, but it is barely large enough for a laptop. The shelf space is also limited in terms of the books and materials that she can store on it. But, all in all, it will work for the space and it LOOKS good!

    It is self assemble but **** furniture is much easier than this. Many of the holes were not drilled properly if at all. It required a lot of reworking.

    I just needed a small desk for my apartment, something that looked good and wasn't intrusive. This was a perfect fit & didn't take me very long to put together myself.
