I work from home and needed a comfortable compact table with chairs that I could put in the corner of my room and sit comfortably for long periods of time. I found this table which includes shelves and two matching chairs, and it was comparable to the table that I had in the corner at the time. I was impressed that everything arrived in one box, including the chairs and all slats of the table. Each board arrived in good condition and was covered by foam that kept it safely in place without any nicks or scratches. every piece of wood was labeled by numbers and the screws and attachments were lettered in a neat package. The only tool that it did not come with was a screwdriver, but I had one at home. I was able to assemble the desk mostly by myself, and with the help of one person due to the weight of the weight and pivoting it to attach all the screws and fixtures. Other than that I probably couldve put it together by myself. I am very impressed with the overall product look and feel height, weight, and components for the price. it fits perfectly in the corner of the room, and I attached a plug-in light, and it appears to be sturdy enough for me to sit and work from. I probably would not put heavy items on it, or would not rock against it with my feet as I am not sure that it is weight-bearing enough to take body weight, resting, or putting feet against it for long periods of time however, it should work just fine for my laptop and light meals during the day, Im very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to others looking for something similar.
