I need to buy my teenage daughter a desk for her room. We're looking for one big enought to will carry her through her high school and possibly college years, but styled to fit a teen's bedroom. Any ideas on where I can look for a desk for her? Lori

Styles and prices of desk vary considerably. My 15-year-old daughter and I looked lots of places before settling on a simple, light-colored desk for her room from Ikea in Emeryville. It has a large surface area and drawers on both sides and enough leg room. It was a pretty good price too, and my husband thought he could put it together in a few hours... of course that was more like five hours! My daughter continues to happy with it. They have a number of styles available at Ikea, but it is best to go on a weekday if you want a parking place. Bonnie
