We have twins and were concerned about the size of most desks - the ones from Franklin+Emily are perfectly compact and just the right size for my 7 year old b/g twins! Needing to fit 2 of everything can be difficult but the flexibility of this desk and the comfortable chairs make it really easy to fit the desks in tighter spaces (I live in an NYC apartment!). The kids love the pencil holder and the cup holder has helped reduce spills which has become super important now that we are full time remote for school.
In short, these durable desks are perfect for both of my kids and I am so excited we have them!
We received the desk for our two kids in April to finish their school year and have used them daily ever since! It gives them both their independence and we have all figured out how to work together and effectively from home. They are in our living room and they are the perfect size and blend in just right. Instead of creating more chaos and clutter they help us keep everything in the right place and still look good. I highly recommend this set to all families!
We bought desks/chairs for both of our boys (6 and 8) and all of us love them! They not only look great, but are so practical with the storage and pencil/water bottle holders. The surface size is great and allows them to have their computer along with paper/notebook. The boys actually enjoy sitting at their desks. The set looks even better in person!
I purchased 2 desk and chair sets for my children to do their school work (and other projects) at home. All I can say is they were worth every penny! The chair fits directly under the desk making for a neat hideaway and a compact set up. The lines are sleek and the wood is beautiful, so the desks blend in with other furniture and don't look childish like other desks I've seen online - however my kids don't notice that! They just feel like they have their own spaces now and want to spend all their time "working" at their desks. The construction is really top notch - even a grown adult can sit in the chair and the weight would be easily supported. I love our desks and think we'll be using them for years to come.
