These pieces were perfect for my laundry room. I stacked them up, putting the bookcases, one on top of the other, on one end of desk and letting the desk stick out like a counter to be used for wrapping packages. It really worked to clean up the clutter of wrapping supplies. They are really sturdy and have a nice finish that I can wipe off if needed. I would by them again for other uses.
We purchased this desk for our 8 year old daughters bedroom. It is perfect. She loves it and we love it. It was very easy for my husband to put together - everything matched perfectly. The quality is excellent - very sturdy and well made. The desk drawers don't glide like those on soft close drawers but they aren't bad at all. In fact, if i hadn't read about that in a prior review before purchasing, I don't think I would've given it a second thought. We purchased this desk after finding a similar desk on pottery barn that was discontinued....then we found it on west elm and we would've paid so much more for it there. I have read other reviews on it not being glossy white. I think our desk is definitely not matte finish and i would consider it glossy white but not shiny white but I haven't seen the exact west elm desk that others have compared it to. She LOVES this desk. It is great quality and i love the simple clean lines. We are so happy with our purchase. Overstock delivered in a timely manner which is so much quicker than anything we have ever purchased from west elm. Happy!
This desk is well-made. It has a smooth finish. The blue is very pretty and offsets the white nicely. It matches the teal pneumonic chair perfectly. Lots of space on it. I love the legs. Plenty of storage. Would definitely buy again!
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!
