    This is built-in, specific to the area, I don't think you can buy it. If you want a basic desk for corners, here's some ideas: https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=desks+fo...

    If husband isn't handy, hire a carpenter and give it to him as a gift.

    cool idea... I have been wanting to build a similar custom bookshelf for a tv and DVDs. I thought of making a cardboard template for each shelf (because my walls aren't "true" at all), and getting the hardware store to cut the wood, for a tighter fit.

    My husband took a half sheet of plywood simply put wooden strips along two sides and fitted it into the corner. Then cut off the outside point. If you would like I could send photo. It works very well. The cut piece was then used as a shelf. Attached the same way.

    Locate studs. Nail strips of wood on both sides at desk height. Take careful measurements and cut piece of plywood to fit. Put in corner and nail to strips. Cut faux drawers and nail on. I am a great believer that you should paint everything BEFORE installation set nails, caulk and touch up paint after.

    I always try to locate at least 1 stud before starting a project. It just so happens he's the "can do" guy I'm lucky to call Hubby. Good luck with your corner desk. I think they would be quite handy in a space that is usually overlooked.

    If you are wanting to build a desk to custom fit into the corner of a particular room, I highly doubt if either Ikea or HD will have a ready-made unit that will fit. To have it look like the one in the picture requires constructing from scratch.
