Ebbe Gehl for John Lewis Mira 4 Seater Dining Table
Beautiful table, very easy to assemble
Beautifully designed, lovely retro feel, modern solid oak table. I am so pleased with this purchase having almost been put off buying it because of earlier reviews about difficulties in assembling. It couldnt have been easier, assembled single-handedly in under 20 mins , no issues, no problems at all - highly recommended.

Practically impossible to assemble
I'm on my 3rd table now, the first was impossible to fully assemble the second turned up with one of the legs split in half and 3rd table has exactly the same problem as the first, one of the tightening screws on the leg just won't grip and go in no matter how many times I've checked that the rest of the table is assembled correctly!
If only the table was simple or came assembled it would be a good product.

A lovely solid table with a slightly retro look. Looks beautiful in our kitchen and is even big enough to squeeze two chairs down each long side. Our table is a lighter colour than that shown here online.
Like others we had a little trouble with assembly, the key seemed to be not to over-tighten the screws. There also did not seem to be pre-drilled holes for all of the screws to fix metal brackets on the underside - simple to fix if you have the right equipment.

Looks lovely but is it a look and don't touch item?
My table arrived all assembled as purchased from display, so that was good.
However I am unsure about how I am to clean it? A droplet of water dripped from my glass and sank straight into the wood leaving a mark that is still there 2 days later!
It seems to have no proper protection, I've tried to google caring for matt lacquered wood but to no avail.
John Lewis please can you tell me what I can use to clean the table and and add a waterproof layer, as I can't have a table that's a look and don't touch as my kitchen dining table.

Lovely table but I didn't have to assemble it!
The table has a lovely matt, slightly bleached look, a little like driftwood. However, I bought the ex-display model, and having read previous reviews which described difficulties with putting it together, made sure that it wasn't dismantled prior to delivery. Thanks guys for your helpful reviews.

Mira Dining Table
The table looks ok but it was quite difficult to assemble, The table still doesn't look right the legs aren't flush with the other bits of brace parts and there are gaps. Because the legs are curved it's hard to tap them in with a mallet . There is also some kind of finish on the wood so when i put an oil on it it was patchy. So the table needs sanding before putting any kind of stain or oil on it.

This table is very tactile and very attractive however assembly is difficult due to poor manufacturing. The joints do not line up nor do the couplings fit properly. Once assembled it looks good but I have requested that the manufacturer comes and completes the assembly.

Dining in style
I love this table. I assembled it single handed and only came up against a minor problem- make sure you have the barrels the right way round when inserting in to the holes. Perhaps I rushed in to assembly without proper attention but thought I would have to return the item as I struggled to rectify my mistake. If I hadn't had a pair of long nosed forceps and initiative it would have gone back and I would have been immensely disappointed.
As it happens tools and initiative prevailed. Take care when assembling but once there it looks amazing and feels very sturdy.
