The workstation is extra comfortable to work at, because the contoured table top allows you to sit close and supports your wrists and forearms.
Keep your coffee, beverage or snacks nearby in the cut-out cup holders on either side of the table top. The cup holders are made of plastic that is approved for use with food.
Hang the small shelves inside or outside the side panels, depending on your needs.
You can fit a 32" computer monitor or TV by removing the shelf above the table top.
The high side panels help block sunlight and prevent distracting glare on your computer monitor.
Built-in cable management; keeps cables out of sight, but close at hand.
May be completed with SIGNUM cable trunking to keep all cords in place.
Holds up to two 24" flat screens.

It's looks good on displayAllenBut it's kinda difficult to put together on a place that doesn't have a lot of tolerance for small things.3
Gaming FreddeDinaThis gaming desk was very easy to assemble. It is also the perfect size. My son was very happy with his new gaming desk.5
Closest you'll get to a workstationCaryThis is the closest you'll get to a full workstation without visiting an office furniture supply.
It's big, it'll hold a mid ATX tower on each of the lower shelves (right angled IEC leads more than recommended) and there's enough space to route cables.
You can reasonably fit a pair of 24" monitors due to the length, the height between both shelves will comfortably fit a 27" and the cable holders on the underside of the upper shelf are quite welcome.
The only dissatisfaction I have is the side panels that cover the shelves are a hang fit and can rattle when the desk is moved. Silicone anti scuff pads has secured them however.
Due to space I haven't assembled or fitted the external side shelves so I can't comment on them.5

AwesomeKelly-LynnI was actually looking for a corner desk but this desk functions far better for my multi screens and having the harddrive off the floor in its own spot is excellent5
Great gaming/study deskMarkGreat gaming/study desk5
Good table for the price.AnantI got it in White. It looks good and is sturdy. I am happy with it. Got space to put things on the top and also on the side.5
LOOK GOOD GAMING COMPUTER DESKAnneTHE DESIGN IS QUITE GOOD, THE MATERIAL IS QUITE GOOD, THE PRICE IS QUITE OK. ACCEPT THAT THE 2 SIDES COVERS SHOULD BE MORE STABLE (EASY TO CLICK OUT).4
Sturdy and practicalGavin R.Fairly straightforward to assemble. The desk (especially the top shelves) seem flimsy when building but the finished result is quite sturdy.
Has just enough room on the monitor shelf for 2 27" monitors. The desk looks better without the metal side panels, and they can be left off. The PC shelves are well supported.
The drink holders are gimmicky and it would be nice if the kit came with blanking plates if you want to have a totally smooth tabletop.
The shelves can be moved up and down, but the main desk height is non-adjustable.4
Very customisable optionTraceyYou can follow the included instructions and end up with a perfectly good desk. But what I loved about this desk was its customisable options. For example, the speaker shelves can be placed inside the desk instead of outside. If your PC tower is tall, then you don't need to include the tower shelf on one side of the desk. The top shelf that includes the hooks can go front or back as well. It's an awesome desk.5
Good gaming deskkrishnaThis desk is very functional, for a study as well as Gaming5
We bought 2 of these.LindaWe bought 2 of these. Love the look of the finished product, it's size and versatility e.g. you can hang the small shelves inside or outside the side panels, depending on your needs.
My husband has placed 2 curved 32" monitors on his workstation and that looks great. The desk does need two people for some of the assembly when completing the framework.5
Desk ReviewEveVery nice desk, perfect for everything I had setup for my gaming and office pc. The spot for a case is a very nice addition.5
ReviewShashiBottom shelfs on both sides cannot accommodate full tower PC's. Also the buttons on most PC are on top of the case which are a pain to get to on this desk.3
exactly what i wanted. aJamesexactly what i wanted. a little heavy for a one person installation but manageable.the end covers are alittle flimsy but otherwise a good piece of furniture5
Perfect gaming desk for ourCarolinePerfect gaming desk for our teenager4
Great desk but tweaks would be appreciatedSylviaThis desk is great but a few things I noticed. The screw holes don’t all line up and some forceful movement of parts are required to line up the holes.
The little shelf’s on the side aren’t removable/adjustable once fitted.
Along with this the metal side pieces don’t fit properly in the tabs and can pop out if touched or bumped.
Apart from those little things overall I am happy with this desk, the size and space is great and the frame feels solid.4
Great deskKevinVery happy. Good size and well designed.5
Is a bit hard toSusanIs a bit hard to put together on your own but doable, love the desk and does what it says. I originally bought one for my son and ended up buying for myself because it’s solid but has plenty of space and comfortable to work at.5
Getting gaming right
If you’re not in to computer gaming yourself, perhaps you have children who are. Across the world, gaming is booming, and naturally IKEA should provide furniture designed for it. So how do players set up a game station to create that immersive gaming experience, what do they need to feel comfortable and supported while playing? When creating FREDDE desk we needed to know. How we found out? We asked a gamer.
David Wahl is not only one of our designers. He’s a gamer too. Of course he got the task.
“When I started playing video games you'd have to make sure your friends were free, and someone’s house was free, then make your way down the street, console in hand to play,” David says.
“Now, it's just as likely that you're playing with people in Shanghai or Sydney or Stockholm.”
Creating a gaming command central
One of the advantages of gaming's move beyond the TV or the family computer is that gamers are free to make a space customized to enjoy each game's full potential.
“A big part of gaming is the immersive experience,” David says.
“So my first move when designing FREDDE was to make a cut out in the desktop so that you could be closer to the screen and have almost a command central sort of feel, while also getting support for your arms at the same time.”
Made to be customized
FREDDE fits speakers, a 32" screen, or a couple of smaller screens on a height adjustable shelf. David also had a personal wish.
“I used to love playing driving simulator games where you would often use pedals, the same as a car,” he says.
“I always found it annoying if you had cables or other things in the way when you were driving so I made sure to design the desk with an unobstructed space for pedals on FREDDE.”
A designer's proudest moment
David is proud to see the gaming community making the desk their own.
“If you do an image search for FREDDE it's fantastic to see how people are adapting it to create their own perfect game space, which is exactly in tune with what I hoped.”
What is steel?
Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
