Rated 5 out of 5Â by john1965 Great Desk for limited spaces
This desk was bought of our daughter's room that has dresser, bed, and cabinets and is in high school. Thus, we needed a desk that with a small footprint that was also functional. The 48" wide by 17" deep is great for space without coming out into the room too far. Set up was done in about 40 minutes with no troubles. The pre-drilled holes can seem too small for the screws, as noted in other reviews, but I had no trouble inserting them by hand. I used a ratchet type screwdriver which helped keep the turning momentum going which made inserting them no problem. Per the previous reviews, the instructions are diagrams but are easily followed. The only potential confusing point was when they showed two screws on top of each with arrows pointing to holes on either side of the corner. The meaning was clear that one screw for each hole. Otherwise, the desk is solid and functional and easily coordinates with her white furniture in her room. It should last a long while as the legs are oak and not a cheap material.

We needed a small desk that was a reasonable price and looked good. Its actually a lot harder to find than you think. The set up of the desk took no time at all and its a great size.
Happy with the purchase!

Â by mcb247 We love this desk!
Purchased the Farringdon desk for my daughter's small bedroom. Its the perfect size being not too deep, she pulls out the laptop work surface when she needs it, and it goes back in to save space when not used. We love the white with wood trim, a modern and sophisticated look. I love white, but the small amount of wood is a nice touch. We had installers put it together, since I ordered some Elfa shelving to hang on the wall above it for all of her books and decorations. We had help designing the look from a Rep at The Container Store and I love the result. It was great to decide within minutes how many shelving pieces we needed and the correct measurements.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by EJN90 Great compact design, beautiful look
I recently moved to a home office and needed a desk that was functional, nice to look at, and good quality. This desk hit all the marks! The slide out work space is especially helpful when looking at my laptop screen resting on the top section and needing space to write. I especially love that it has a tad more feminine look as opposed to the majority of desks on the market today and the big black desk my husband currently uses. I'm not sure why someone said it was difficult to assemble as I put it together with no help in about a half hour.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Brooke31 Very Difficult to Assemble
Appealing, contemporary design, very expensive for an assemble yourself product, and very difficult to put together. I have a lot of background in assembling furniture, unfortunately, assembly instructions are vague, and pre-drilled holes are not deep enough to insure proper alignment of screws/ component pieces. I was able to complete assembly by "mocking up" assembly prior to actually putting the pieces together.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by booklovernat Perfect desk for our office/library space
We needed a relatively compact desk for our office/library space, and this one wound up being perfect. It was not difficult to assemble, and it has a great clean/classic look. It has a lot of desktop space and the pull-out feature is very nice. I also like the drawer on top. It has a minimalist feel to it and it makes sitting down to write a paper quite a nice experience. I would definitely recommend it!
