My husband put this together in about ten minutes in the middle of cooking dinner last night! The instructions and design are that simple! It came packaged well, no damage.
It is not the absolute sturdiest piece of furniture in my house, but it barely gives a tiny wobble if you press or lean on it, so I think it will even hold up to my boys' use;) The frame looks really good and seems sturdier than previous box store furniture purchases.
The industrial style is so fun. This fits right in with my slightly rustic, slightly industrial living spaces and could be used in multiple rooms, ie, the bedroom, office, crammed in the dining room if all of a sudden you are forced to work from home. Also, a lot of different styles of seating would look good with it. The size is really nice too.
I hate the fake wood stuff- not going to lie...but it looks great and is sturdy enough. Some day down the road, I might get a solid real board, sand and stain it, drill a hole for cords and replace the fake wood, but for now, you can't really see that it is fake wood and it doesn't even seem to off gas an odor or anything, so I need to get over it;)
There are cool features: 1. cord keeper hooks! GOOD IDEA! Thank-you! 2. built in charger on surface of desktop - I don't have any phones that charge without a cord, but there is a place to plug in desk to charge with a cord too:)
I will put a rolling drawer set under one end to hold supplies for our current needs, because this piece has clean lines and no built in storage.
I'm really impressed and am thinking about more purchases from this industrial style line.
