Sycamore & Platinum elfa Mesh Component Desk
Need high-power drill for this one
Once again, the Container Store makes it seem like anyone can assemble something that requires special power tools. I had to go out and buy a cordless drill for this, and it STILL wasn't powerful enough to get the legs connected to the desktop. I had to ask a handyman to do it -- he luckily had a high-power drill. And it still took some work for him to do it. The legs are put on very sturdily but the mesh drawers are put on with VELCRO. Yes, that's right, you're paying 250.00 for a desk that's half velcro. The drawer stops (which they sell separately and are not cheap) are tiny plastic pieces that keep coming out. So my drawers keep sliding too far back and hitting the wall.

Easy to Assemble
Elfa is easy to assemble, looks great, and is very functional. I have the white Elfa with the Sycamore top. It's easy to move and reconfigure to meet your current needs.

Good simple desk.
The desk was easy to put together , although you had to read between the lines on the directions.

Your Platinum elfa Mesh Drawers on rollers allows me to go from cluttered to clear in five minutes! Because I use my dining table as a work space for my card-making business, I need a storage solution that is sturdy and portable. This cart assembles in minutes and tucks away neatly beside my piano. With my Art Cart, I can channel my inner muse at a moment's notice and still serve dinner on time. Thank you, Container Store!
