Agree with the Galant, series, though mine is the glass conference table (rectangular, not oval). I hate small desks. I'll post pics when I remember to get my camera out of my car.

The desk is a GALANT series 43'

I built the 2nd teir piece out of a LACK shelf and a set of 4 CAPITA coffee table legs

I wish I didn't have to use flash but the lighting sucks on camera in my room :)

And zip ties does wonders for the wiring since I forgot to buy the gasket thing that Ikea sells.

Ikea Frederik with custom made shelf. Bought for how-ever much it goes for new in Ikea.



The Fredrik is not as wide as the Jerker.
Just like the Jerker, the Frederik comes in two sizes, a large one, and a smaller one with shelfs, both of them is equal in size to the Jerker counterpart (errr... I think)

Hey Herl, if you dont mind what monitor is that?


Its a Samsung LNT3253H 32-Inch LCD HDTV, however this is only a temporary measure once I move again I'll be switching back to a standard LCD monitor.

I'll join the party with my Galant setup. I'm still in the market for a 30" LCD, but this is how everything looks now. I really need to get one of those Signum cable management things that mount under the desk. Of course, I've been telling that to myself for the last year. :p

It's the Galant series and it's the Beech Veneer color. They have a lighter color which is the Birch Veneer. My setup with the "T" legs and extension piece cost me around $320. I picked up myself and installed it on my own.

Not to sound too femmie or anything, but that blue paint on your walls is just awesome. I love that and the contrasting dark brown. Very cool setup. Makes me wish I was still single and living out of my room lol.

hey is that an ikea bed? .. or where can i find a bed like that?
I wouldn't recommend you buying that frame. It collapses on me couple of times so I got rid of all my ikea furniture. I'm currently looking for a white desk, IMO white will look a lot better than dark brown with my blue walls.

Edit: I like the desk frame but the top sucks.

Ikea desk are cheap for the price and does a hell of a job for a table.

The beds look alright but are also cheap in material and wouldn't trust it.

I got the black-brown with the T-shaped legs. Not the full corner, I got the right hand with an extension.

Yes, they ship. Thankfully they also deliver as the damn thing didn't fit in my car. Oh well, cost another $80 for delivery, but it will come the day after we move in which means one less thing to put on the truck (actually 7 boxes).

The guy at Ikea was really helpful showing me all the optional configurations and he said the desks are well made (he seemed honest, not just selling it).

I also got a small half round end piece w/ 4" legs to act as a little monitor riser on the guys suggestion. Should work well.
