Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 99 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good looking, well made desk We wanted a desk to position under our stairs and the measurements were perfect. After reading the reviews we ordered on line, it arrived promptly and was very well packaged. We completed the assembly in situ as the desk is very heavy and we are absolutely delighted with it. The quality is outstanding for the price, the drawers are solid and run smoothly and there is plenty of room to sit comfortably. Great customer service as always from John Lewis and their delivery team. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality office desk This is a great desk which has plenty of leg room for an office seat. There are three good sized draws. My daughter is very happy with it. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by smart desk I found the instructions and fitting together of the desk very straightforward. It is a nice looking modern piece of furniture very solid and stable with plenty of room in the draws. Altogether I am really pleased with it. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and well made Pleased with this desk. Followed the advice of other reviewers and assembled in situ. Takes up less room than the desk it replaced but stores just as much. 27 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Handsome piece A4 file draw could do with being 5 mm wider to take a pocket folder more comfortably. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent desk Bought this for small home teaching room. Absolutely ideal and good quality 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top quality desk A carpenter working for our neighbour assembled this quickly for us. He commented that the oak is excellent quality, better than the wood he is using from scratch to build shelves. "I couldn't do this quality for this money" he said. 15 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by abacus filing desk disappointed that it was self assembly as it did take two people longer than an hour to set up and we have self asseblied items in the past. Disappointed with the quality purely because it was a self assembly desk. we are keeping the desk but if we had seen it in the shop before hand we perhaps would not have bought it. 18 August 2015
