    I needed a very specific desk for my small space. I decided on a shelf/ladder type desk and searched high and low for an affordable option. This was the best thing I saw as far as looks, price, and favorable reviews. Although the height between shelves wasn't listed, I decided to take the risk and order it. Unfortunately, my 27" iMac didn't fit with the middle shelf in place. I decided to make the middle shelf a monitor riser instead of putting it where it belonged. I'm quite happy with it and after attaching it to the desk, it looks as if it were supposed to be made that way and the hack doesn't seem to affect its sturdiness. Assembly wasn't tough, but I have to say that I've put together a lot of furniture over the years and am quite handy. I did it alone and the only issue I had was attaching the shelves because I had no help to hold the sides. To remedy the odd angles, I used some of the styrofoam packing materials to prop the parts up to the necessary heights. So why 4 stars? Well, I'm knocking off a star for the following things: 1. Not all parts were labeled. Only a select few. It would've been a lot easier and faster had all the parts been labeled because there would be no guessing games. 2. I agree with a previous reviewer that having the side pieces be one long piece instead of 2 would've been better, but it seems fine. Just make sure to line them up nicely. 3. The laminate chips easily where the free edges are, but I only have a few small pieces that chipped towards the very back of the shelves. Hardly noticeable, but watch out for those free edges. Lol. 4. The included stickers to cover the screws are HORRIBLE. The adhesive is garbage and as soon as I put them on, they would lift and/or start to fall off. Not sure if I got a bad batch of stickers, but they were already coming loose from the sticker pad before I even pulled them off. 5. There's not much actual desk space if you have a large monitor/computer. I don't mind this much because I have a larger chair, which I use a laptop table on. I put my keyboard and trackpad on it and just lean back. 6. The bottom piece of wood under the main desk part might get in the way of pushing your chair in if it's high or has arm rests. I actually ended up switching my swivel office chair for the Ikea Poang and it slides underneath all the way despite the armrests. I included a photo of both chairs for comparison. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with my new desk and none of the things mentioned above are dealbreakers for me, so 4 stars! Hope my review helped!

    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

    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

    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've been working from home for years and just now I have gotten myself a desk!!!! It's soooo sleek and light and it fit my space that I assigned it to PERFECTLY!!!! I have been redesigning my NY apartment so I have been getting furniture that's not bulky but can do the job. This is so perfect! The instructions weren't amazing, sometimes you had to really figure it out, but at the end you do. It's really not that heavy. I was able to lift it up after building it but it does have weight to it so definitely use a helper if you have one because you can fall if you go off balance. The wood is sturdy. It's not wobbly at all. The color is great. Really if I had any complaint, it's the I intended to have the top shelf to house my folders but they don't fit so I had to put them on the second shelf. But that's fine. Oh, the only other complaint is that the pieces aren't labeled. You kinda have to match stuff to the photos. It would have been nice for the bags to be labeled but it isn't a deal-breaker, obviously. Definitely worth it!

    It fits nice in a small space. However it is not very stable. We had to put bottom pads on the front to stabelise it.
