Hey everyone.

I have a wall about 208cm long, I am thinking about buying a new workplace and TV stand and I am terrible and measurements. So I want to know, will a:

* Desk that is (H)72.1, (W)100, (D)44.4cm
* TV/Video unit that is (H)43.2, (W)91.7, (D)36.8cm
* and 3 chest of draws that are (H)74.4, (W)50, (D)44.2cm

fit onto the 208cm long wall? (with gaps of course)

...and if it does not, then will just the desk and tv/video unit only fit in the 208cm long wall?

thanks everyone :)
I am very bad at measurements so please do not say anything about my math knowledge please.

The math answer was good, but you surely want to take the placement into account. The location of the TV is probably the most critical. If you want that centered on the wall, you'd have room for a drawer unit on either side. (nice and symmetrical) You might then take a pass on the third drawer unit, and find another location for the desk.

When we had our house built, we asked for five more inches in the spot I am now sitting so that our desk and drawer unit would fit. I was nervous when we moved in, but there is nearly 2 inches to spare.

thats a brilliant idea, well this has kind of twisted your answer, but 4 draws on each side (as in a drawer with 4 draws on each side) and a desk in the middle, so the TV can go on the 4 chest of draws and accesories (e.g. Xbox 360, DVD player...) can go on the other one. It would look nice too, but I'm thinking about the width of all the stuff, won't fit when you think about it, will be too close to my bed. (This is for my bedroom)
