Solid wood has a natural feel. Four adjustable shelves. 1 stationary shelf for high stability.
Left runner of large drawer was circa 4mm too high. 95% sure that mine had a manufacturing error. (I am very experienced in assembling furniture successfully, so nearly 100% confident that this was a product errr). Work-around was to fill the hole with dowel and screw the front of the rail into correct position by eye. I also dropped front or right hand rail so that the drawer would sit level. Other than this it's an OK product.
Looking lovely.I went to Ikea by myeslf to buy the massive Hemnes drawers when I was about 38 weeks pregnant. Luckily DH helped me build it but I did decide it would be a good idea to push and pull it down the hallway to our bedroom (we built it in the loungeroom) by myeslf All was going well until it got stuck in the hallway and I had tot ake the top off and clamber over it to fit it through the doorway seriously, pregnancy hormones are weird. Not sure why it HAD to be done that day .
I have the HEMNES dresser collection and love it. I choose the desk for my office because of the quality of the piece and the fact that the dressers have held up very well. However, because the desk is pine (soft wood) the top really needs to be protected in some way. When I placed my computer screen on the desk, it left indents in the table top and I hadn't even used it yet. You cannot write on this tabletop unless you have a desk pad of some sort otherwise whatever you write will be permanently marked onto the tabletop. I called Ikea to suggest that they make a glass top that fits the desk. Their only suggestion for now was the glass top that is made for the dresser which is too long and not wide enough. Hopefully they will create something for this soon as it would be a wonderful fix to the problem and make it 100% better. If it had the option for a glass top, I would easily give this 5 stars until then it gets 3 because within a few days the tabletop was already ruined.
I am very happy with this dresser. It is much more roomy that it looks. Also, the bottom drawer holds as much as the two top drawers combined. I upgraded from another drawer set and was able to fit all of my clothes with room to spare. I think that this is the best dresser drawer set they have. It was also easy to assemble.
We've had this nightstand for over a year and love it! The drawer underneath is a little bit small, but its perfect for chapstick, eye glasses, or whatever you need by your bed. It's held up beautifully.
I purchased this desk in white, and it is beautiful and durable. Happy with the purchase except for the paint wear that is happening on top. I would definitely recommend putting some kind of protective furniture coating before using the desk. Our desk is barely over a year old and the front top of it makes it look a decade old. Other than that, love this desk.
