It came in two boxes, very well packaged. Be sure to check on all parts before discarding the box, not that they are gonna miss anything, but some of the parts are so well packaged that you might miss them. It took me 1.5 hour to put it together, and the only experience I've had with assembling furniture is putting together coffee tables. The instruction is clear, although since the frame is not the same on front and back, it would be great if it indicate which side is the front and which is the back. Overall I'd say it's easy to put together, as long as you keep everything organized, and lay everything out on the floor in order before starting. I did the most part myself, but some parts you need someone to hold it together for you when you insert the screws. The only thing I dislike during the assemble (not vital), is that when you put the key board holder in place, you need to put some small screws in to keep it in place, and it did not provide tool for that. You need to have your own tool. (just a screwdriver, I wish I had one.........) After it's put together, it's just like it is in the picture. The only thing is I don't know what the Phone/fax shelf is. It is very modern and stylish. It just feels a bit narrow, not deep enough that things might be pushed off easy, but since it's so long, it should be able to hold a lot of stuff. Overall it is a good buy,but I think i'd be happier if I am paying less than $250.
