A clean look that’s easy to like, coupled with a clever design that keeps messy cables out of sight. The back is finished so you can place it in the middle of the room – all sides are just as beautiful.

Form and function.MeghanThis desk has a great wide work surface but also a low-profile and minimalist look. It fits well in fairly small spaces. The drawers are a good size, and the cord/wire control cubby is a game-changer.5

Look sleek and easy toMaribethLook sleek and easy to assemble. Will recommend it.5
Great desk for the moneyAlfieI have three of these in my house: two for my wife and I for our work at home setup and one for my daughter for her sewing area setup. The desk hides all the wires perfectly for our WAH setups and everything fits great on the desk with two monitors and a docking station. For the sewing setup, I did have to drill another hole in the wire area to be able to properly run the foot pedal for the sewing machine as it was too short a wire to run it to the side holes but not a big deal. The desk was easy to assemble with just one person although some people will need assistance lifting the box as it is not light. It is a very solid desk and does not shake even with a sewing machine in use. The two drawers are nice and long and are perfect for holding supplies and miscellaneous papers. I definitely recommend this desk5
ALEX DeskRAYOutstanding, too bad had to wait for three weeks to get it accidentally, since no emailing stock status.5

great looking desk, not very functionalrainydazs2000I saw this desk on website and feel in love with it. It's great looking, simple, sleek, modern. the 2 drawers and wire compartment was an added bonus. after receiving the desk, I realize the desk has a few design flaws. it was also a challenge to put the desk together. instructions were not very clear. 1) annoying metal support bar under desk you can't see it on the pictures but the desk has 2 1 horizontal block metal bar under the desk to support the drawers/desk top. Back bar is fine. Front bar is problematic, it's about 4 in from front. this metal bar keeps hitting my knees. I have a computer chair with arm rest, I can only push my chair in 4 because the metal bar blocks it. very annoying. Also can't cross my legs under desk because metal bar is in the way. I wish ikea would have use a flat metal bar or a skinny 0.25 bar instead. 2) wire compartment towards back of desk the hidden compartment lid has no structural support. the lid started sagging once I push my computer toward the back of the desk. I had to go to hardward store and buy a block of wood to support the lid. the opening in the middle of the desk is a tad unsightly. not horrible , just wish they put 2 small ones towards ends of desk.2
