Q & As

John Lewis Loft Desk 4.2 5 131 131
Great desk and looks good in front room. This is a great product made of real wood and looks good in any room. The table top part slides forward so that you have even more space to work on. It does however lack a set of drawers but these can be bought to fit under and to one side of the desk and this is made in matching wood. Great to use and I think it will last for years. 26 August 2014
Not up to standard. This product has the potential to be lovely but the quality control is rubbish. I had decided to ignore the poor reviews and kept my fingers crossed all would be ok. Delivery was prompt and the guys were helpful carrying it to where I wanted it. It was packed well and showed no sign of damage. When I unpacked it I discovered that on two separate parts there where splits in the wood close to where they had drilled. The wood did not join on one part due to the split and there was a gap of 10mm. This should have been picked up during the manufacturing process. It was very obvious and left a large gap down the top right hand side. JL has promised to call in the next 7 days to arrange pick up. Frustrating! 29 July 2014
good piece of furniture just what I needed. Good for what I need it for, however the assembly instructions took a bit to decypher (20 minutes to assemble) I think not. 29 July 2014
Love it Great desk! Easy to put together. Looks great and works well for our uses. Nice and compact when not in use and big enough to work on from home. 29 July 2014
John Lewis Loft Desk Excellent! Just as described. Can't understand all the "silly" reviews above regarding assembly and quality. The quality is exactly as described. I am Disabled and a female friend who, by no means is experienced in furniture assembly, assembled it all for me in about 1 1/2 hours. Everything fitted perfectly as it said on the instructions. The desk is really solid and sturdy, I have an old eMac sitting on the top shelf. 15 July 2014
If possible, I'd give this desk zero stars. Really disappointed with the quality of this desk. Ultimately, the price of something is irrelevant if it's not actually fit for purpose, and this desk falls squarely into that category. The biggest issues are 1) alignment, 2) quality of fixings, and 3) finish, about which more below: 1) The alignment is the biggest issue and after a frustratingly ling time, we were left with a desk that clearly doesn't fit together. There are non-matching gaps, and, worst of all, two of the Leg Bolts won't even screw in so they are left flush. 2) The quality of the fixings is also a major problem. Even when carefully following the instructions to the letter - do NOT overturn, etc - the screws and leg bolts both 'threaded' Seriously, what's the point in using fixings that can't cope with a single assembly session? 3) From a dirty handprint, to a clearly bumpy surface (on the 'smooth' curve of the top 'hutch') the finish simply lacks attention to detail. This desk should not have got past quality control. In summary, the desk we received was a really poor effort. And it's going back - once we've gone to the trouble of taking it apart, and repacking it of course. Most frustratingly, it shouldn't even have left the factory, and the end result is a lot of wasted time and effort. (Not to mention one disappointed daughter.) Not impressed with this JLP... 30 June 2014
Poor quality- expected more from John Lewis First desk arrived. The leg was split. Second desk.. A worse crack on the unit piece. The quality is far too poor for the price and john Lewis standards. Awful product. Returned for 2nd time and purchased another desk from elsewhere. 20 June 2014
Bolts do not match I bought this desk and found the same problem as other reviewers as the bolts did not fit. I spoke to a local DIY business and it turns out that the bolts provided are imperial measurements, while the insets of the desk are metric. I was sold four metric bolts of size M6 at 40p each and they fit perfectly. Other than that (rather large problem), the desk is great. 16 June 2014
