John Lewis Loft Desk
This is a lovely neat desk that doesn't take up too much room but because it extends is also practical.

Lovely Desk & Good Quality
As usual, John Lewis have not let us down!
Lovely desk, great quality and so easy to assemble, says two people and 20 mins and I did it in less than that time alone, and I'm a female!
Would definitely recommend.

Great Loft Desk
I really like this desk. Despite the instructions not being the clearest, it was easy enough to put together and the desk looks great and has been admired by a number of people

Solid and easy-ish assembly
I saw the desk in store first and it seemed solid. Despite other comments below on assembly, it was reasonably straightforward for one person assembly in about an hour with all screws etc fitting as indicated. The instructions could be clearer as the desk top comes in two sections whereas the instructions seem to imply the desk top is one single section. But easy enough to work out. Quality following initial assembly seems solid. I have the oak version. Be prepared to dispose of a ton of packaging though.

Really frustrating process
The desk arrived last Monday and as instructed I checked the contents and found that I had two packs of one set of fastenings and nil of another set (there are 6 different fastening required to assemble the desk). I phoned the number given and was told the default option is to send the whole lot back and take delivery of a new (unchecked) desk. I also wrote to the store in Edinburgh. Why not stock the fastenings in the UK (like IKEA) and who bears the cost of the multiple deliveried? This is Tuesday of the following week and i am still waiting for resolution so i can assemble the desk

Really pleased with the loft desk. It represents good value for money and is easy to put together. Delivery was on time and kindly placed in the room for me (it is far too heavy to move by yourself). the compatments and extendable section are very useful for space saving.

Shocking......no the usual JL standard
We bought one of these desks in cream which had issues so we returned it and had an exchange for the same desk in the same colour hoping that the faults were a one off but they weren't.
There were different issues with both of the desks and they include the following
Some of the paint work was chipped, the holes that had been drilled had splits around the edges, paint had dripped into some of the holes making it impossible to screw some of the fixings in, caps were missing from the bottom of the legs, a couple of the camlock fixings broke when we tried to construct the desk.
In the end the second desk was returned and we have been given a full refund but I would definitely not recommend this desk.
Overall extremely poor quality and not what you would expect from JL products.
JL customer service however was as expected and 100% faultless.

Oakloft desk - poor quality
This desk looks fabulous on the pictures. I went to see it in the store before ordering and couldn't believe how poor it was. It was so flimsy and wobbly. When I pulled the extension the part exposed to the elements had changed colour compared to the part that is normally tucked away which doesn't bode well for anyone purchasing this.. So my hunt for a decent desk continues.
