Purchased these two Simple Living Jolie items to complement Altra Kids' Headboard, Mates Bed and Nightstand (using pink inserts) for my 9-year-old great-niece's bedroom makeover. Her room was tiny with no wall space to spare - 8'x9' with two doors and a window - but the finished look was clean, bright and she had a "place for everything and everything in its' place" when done. I was especially pleased with the high quality canvas drawers in the desk and bookcase. The solid grommeted pull-openings, heavy stitching on all seams and removable rigid bottom panels guarantee that these drawers will hold up to heavy kid use for years to come. We used the 'bookcase' as a dresser for her folded clothes - underwear, t-shirts, dance wear, sleepwear, etc., and we hung an oval mirror over the desk, to allow it to double as a dressing table. We added two wall-mounted, swing-arm lamps, one over the nightstand and another beside the mirror over the desk, slid in the Legare Bent Ply Chair, finished it off with pink/brown PB Teen linens, and her completed room was amazing!
I read some of the reviews that said that it shipped in poor condition and was missing hardware but I decided to purchase this desk anyway and I had none of those problems. I put it together in about 30 minutes with easy instructions and well labeled pieces and hardware. It is a nice quality desk and I'm sure it will last us for years to come. I would mention that it is meant for smaller children. I would say age 9 or 10 and younger.
