Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this desk! Looks even better in real life. Love this ladder desk. Solidly constructed and is the perfect desk for my little study. My only issue is that the supplied dowels that are intended to go in the main desk piece don't fit easily into the corresponding hole. The holes seemed too small for the dowel and it wasn't easy getting them in - had to get a mallet in the end and very carefully knock them in. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect The website really does not do this great desk justice. My local store (Norwich) had taken down their display one, so took a risk when ordering. Looks great as a desk, dressing table and/or a work station.....I have my sewing machine on mine! Now about to order the Coliseum book shelf. 10 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely desk! Looks exactly as shown on the website. Good quality, perfect for smaller rooms. Will definitely recommend 19 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostly Good A high quality piece of furniture that is let down by its instructions. The supplied dowels do not go in the uprights as indicated, but they do go in the main shelf supports. Apart from that it is a great pics of furniture and just what we wanted for my wife's 21 inch iMac. 08 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it so much that I bought the shelving unit too Really good quality, and you don't even need to attach it to the wall, which is perfect if you decide to move it and not want to damage wall paper. Highly recommend it. 18 November 2014
