Well chuffed After lots of shopping around this seamed the ideal one for me. It's taken 3 hours to build but I was on my own and I've taken my time. I'm not a DIYer by any means and would say if I can do it anyone can, looks fantastic now it's put together you would think I'd paid a hefty price for it very solid. Would highly recommend it! 04 April 2014
Superb home desk Easily assembled, strong & beautifully made Very pleased. 21 February 2014
Smart looking, solid desk Good quality desk for the home office with lots of storage space in the drawers, but compact enough to fit in the corner of the living room. Would definitely recommend, but you need to be aware (as others have said) that it is very heavy. It did take a long time to build - the instructions didn't seem as intuitive as others I have seen (from Sweden). Also, all the fixings (and there are hundreds) are mixed up in one bag, so difficult to pick the right bits out. Also, why are there spare parts? Why not just make sure there is the right number of parts in the first place? In my case there was. I might also put some clear varnish on the desktop as it does feel a bit softer than my work desk. Anyway, put the time and effort in and you will be rewarded. 20 January 2014
Fantastic quality Have been looking for a new desk for a while now. Needed something smaller than the one I had, and really pleased I went for this one. Has a great, quality feel to it. Feels solid, unlike cheaper alternatives. I also bought matching shelves, and it's made my home office look so much better. 08 January 2014
Solid sleek looking desk We bought the desk cupboard and office chair and it has absolutely transformed our home office. We are not great DIYers but even we found it relatively easy to put together nice solid piece of furniture I'm delighted excellent service as always from John Lewis 27 December 2013
Good quality desk After looking around at various computer desks on offer and considering customer reviews I opted for the John Lewis 'Abacus'. The desk is a good size, feels solid with deep drawers and smooth runners, and has an attractive oak finish. Assembly was fairly straight forward and every part fitted correctly, which I managed on my own. A supply of spare fitments came with the desk which may come in handy if you every have to disassemble for any reason in the future. A word of warning, it is very heavy and needs to be built near to point of use. 09 October 2013
Smart quality desks I bought two of these to sit side by side in my home office, they are brilliant. My son and I put them together in about an hour, for once without breaking anything or having bits left over! 15 September 2013
Excellent Have just bought this desk and the cupboard. Excellent quality and really easy to assemble. Cannot recommend it too highly. 06 August 2013
