Hi Paula, the owner of this house has come back to me with measurements for you. The desk is 75 cm high, from the corner to the center the width is 1.40 cm and at the far end the width is 35 cm. The material is MDF. The shelves for the CD’s are a bit bigger than the CD’s itself (14 cm high). If you would like more information, you are welcome to contact him (Bart) via email: vlietland@vlietland.com. Good luck building this nifty little nook! Holly

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This study nook serves as the perfect spot to write a letter or chat on the telephone. The built-in shelving provides ample storage for Alting's CDs.
Hijack a corner in front of a window.

I like the height of the window, barely above the desk's work surface. Also, the shelves that come right to the corner.
