Java Linea Leaning Desk
Great look but assembly needs work!
I recently purchased this desk, along with two matching bookshelves. I loved the look (and still do), but, wow, it was not fun to assembleâ¿¿and I'm good with instructions and very handy with tools.
On the desk I bought, I had to change the order of the assembly steps in order to get it to go together. I also found that a number of the holes were a mere dent in the wood, so I had to drill them myself. I considered returning it and then thought what if I went to all that effort and got another desk that had the same problems?
Very unimpressive when Container Store products are usually so well designed!

Great piece of furniture
I hesitated in purchasing this piece because the desk part didn't seem sturdy in the store. I bought it anyway along with the 2 small side bookcases. I'm glad I did! It is very sturdy and extremely stylish. I think the store model may not have had the bracket that secures the desk installed. Anyway, glad I made the purchase. The install was quite easy and once I had the desk unit done the 2 bookcases had the exact same install instructions to it was a breeze.

I love this desk. I use it as a bookshelf and its great to display all of my stuff. I don't use a desk in the generic way very often, so this desk is perfect for me.

Cute but fragile
I have had my desk for a little over a year and it has been a great storage system, however, last night after work I came home to a broken desk. It had just fallen and now one of the legs is broken. I do like the style, but it seems a bit fragile. I know it was put together correctly because my fiancÃ© who works in construction completed it for me, so be careful when considering this purchase.
