Q & As

John Lewis Abacus Corner Desks 4.7 5 68 68
Useful desk We needed a new desk in a room for my wife to,use for her work and art projects. The corner desk fitted the bill in terms of size and space. It came flatpacked but was easy to assemble following the instructions supplied . Would recommend for anyone with a corner spot in a room that does not a lot of space used. 20 January 2015
Good looking and sturdy furniture I bought the Abacus corner desk and the matching 2 door cupboard after seeing the good reviews online. I have not been disappointed! I am extremely pleased with the delivery service from John Lewis. A very polite chap informed me exactly when the delivery would be made and then delivered into my chosen room. I put the items together by myself, although it did take me a bit longer than 40 mins!! As long as you follow the instructions to the letter, you shouldn't have any problems. I am thrilled with the results! 06 January 2015
Abacus Corner Desk Very pleased with the desk, good solid construction and reasonably easy to assemble. Sufficient storage space and good top surface space. Have since bought other Abacus units. 17 September 2014
At the end of the world... ...there will be two things left; cockroaches and this desk! It's fantastically well made, looks lovely and gives plenty of room on the work surface whilst also providing very useful storage on the shelves underneath. I also bought the small desk which goes nicely with it. And the keyboard tray which is a very useful addition. All are very solidly made. The instructions were easy to follow. I'd say it took about an hour for my husband and I to put this together. It is heavy though, so you definitely need two people. Delivery was excellent too, right on time and called before-hand. Everything I'd expect from John Lewis basically. 07 September 2014
Nice Desk But products dont line up I purchased the desk and the set of drawers and there there is about 0.5cm difference in height between the two. Which doesnt sound like much but kind of goes against the point of buying furniture that is supposed to fit together. Otherwise all good 22 July 2014
Great desk This desk is great because the shelves below hold so much 'stuff' like printer paper and box files. The desk is so deep that there is plenty of room for a printer towards the corner and it still leaves plenty of space in front for a computer or other work. 24 June 2014
Brill Price very resonable, looks fantastic in our study. Now considering purchasing further matching furniture. Took my son and husband almost an hour to assemble without any hitches . Thank you . 20 May 2014
Great desk, but bigger than expected The thing that's really missing from the product details page is the actual length of the desk from the corner to the wall. The depth is from the corner (where your walls meet) to the edge, and the width is from corner to corner of the desk. The distance of the desk along the wall on each side is 97cm. If you look at "asesmbly instructions" the bit that say 423mm - if you measured the whole of that length its 970mm. I couldn't work this out from the diagram. This was a bit bigger than I thought but still managed to fit it in the space just about! The John Lewis delivery men were great - they carried everything up the stairs to my flat for me. You need a bit of space to assemble the desk but I found it really easy (easier than other flat packed) and did it on my own in about 30 mins. I've just realised I've put moveable the shelves on back to front, but prefer them this way I think! It would just require me to lift out and change. Nice sturdy desk overall. Am going to buy some matching drawers I think :) 18 April 2014
