Great value and style
I got the desk and 2 bookshelves for a small alcove in my bedroom. It takes up minimal space, is high-quality, and it looks very stylish. There is room for my computer, printer, books, and office supplies. You can't beat the price, either. I also like that it is versatile and that I can always separate the bookshelves if needed.

Love the Desk....But could Use better brackets
I first saw this desk on display at my local Container Store. I've loved everything I've bought from them so far, and this desk is no idfferent. The desk on display had the main desk component plus one bookcase. Originally that's what I thought I wanted but when it came time to purchase I went with the entire kit. I love the fact that each unit CAN stand independently....I ended up using one of the book cases seperate from the desk and it really helps draw the room together!
The only thing that I can say negatively (like everyone else) is that it definitely needs a better mounting system to attach it to the wall. I had a friend help me put it together who has been a carpenter for many years; and he showed me that the wall strap is pretty ineffective. I am bringing a new dog home in two days and was concerned that she could inadvertently try jumping up on the shelves; so we made our own piece. I wouldn't have been able to do it alone, though!
All in all it's a beautiful, not too expensive, stylish desk. I love how the pieces from the Container store are always funcitonal and decorative!
PS - I used the online order and pickup service so I was able to save 20% on the price with a coupon code. When I was ready to pick it up I called ahead and all I had to do was pull my car around and two employees looaded it up for me! Very nice!
