Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sturdy practical and solid This desk is a simple design which is just what I wanted. As well as being functional, it is sturdy and well made - attractive in colour and fits into an alcove. I looked at other desks but wanted to get away from the more traditional desks. What more can I say except to mention that it is easy to put together and well-made. 13 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Abacus desk My husband has just finished making the desk and has been very impressed with ease of construction and the excellent quality of the product. The instructions are concise and easy to follow and needed only two people to fit the desk top. A soft rubber hammer was useful for seating the dowels during assembly but must be used gently. 28 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent product let down by inadequate filing drawer This is a good quality product and reasonably easy to construct (although the instructions confusingly repeat themselves) .I was very pleased with its design incorporating a filing drawer, which we need and a critical reason for its purchase. However when I tried to put files in the filing drawer they wouldn't fit! Standard foolscap files cannot be accommodated, only A4 paper, for which you can't getA4 files. I cannot say how disappointed I am that this was not pointed out in your product description. 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good quality Bought this desk for my daughter, was amazed how everything fitted perfect when i assembled it. Really heavy and solid, fantastic quality. 29 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Practical and neat Bought this to blend into study with oak bookcases and it looks good. The drawers are smooth running. It is practical and neat. 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Desk Good quality desk for home use. Easy to assemble but does take a couple of hours. Looks good alongside the matching filing cabinet. 10 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks good but I wish I could get hanging files to fit This desk looks good. I had to get help to assemble it but the instructions were clear and it went OK. The only problem is that I cannot find hanging files to fit the drawer size. The standard A4 size are too big. Even John Lewis do not appear to sell them. 26 November 2015
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
