Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 157 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nice design We loved the design of this desk but felt the quality could have been better as some edges weren't flush. In the end we had to return it as we had an issue with the cabinet (couldn't attach the wheels) and as we wanted a matching cabinet and desk we had to look elsewhere. 01 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent piece of furniture; styling and sleek! I was looking for a desk that needed to fit into a low space; a loft in fact! Due to recently moving into s new places as a mature student. Having looked at several oprtions, this was the perfect fit. It is elegant, stylish and sleek. It is extremely easy to assemble; I am aware that I'm a man but managed it perfectly well one own. All the piece were there and the perfect size and fit. I am delighted with it and love to sit and work at it. Everyone that's been to visit has commented about how nice it is! Thank John Lewis; a dither triumph and further evidence that your slogan should be 'a little bit of Heaven here on Earth' 09 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Expect better from John Lewis I bought this desk two years ago and it receives very light usage on days I work from home. The veneer at the front of the desk is peeling and chiping for no reason (it isn't banged at all) but just peeling away. Expect much better from JL and could get something similar for half the cost if I only wanted something to last a couple of years. 24 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good teenagers desk We bought two of these for our children aged 11 and 13, they unpacked and assembled them by themselves this morning- I tried to assist with the first one only hindering progress, it took 30 mins. The second one took them 20 mins without me. Only tip is that the instructions do not say attach the flat part of the desk to the "hutch" first with screws E and then put that on the legs with screws A, my 13 year old worked this out v quickly. The desk looks good, much of it plywood with veneer but for the price an excellent purchase. When slid open the flat desk is plenty large enough. I was really nervous after reading some of the reviews but it was straightforward - don't let them put you off. Cubby holes can hold an A4 sheet and raised shelf could hold a monitor. 13 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks good. Needs two people to assemble. Some of the holes did not align, but, with a little perseverance on my husbands part we made it fit. Looks good in our holiday bedsit. 01 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look & feel of a writing bureau, with functionality of a modern desk - a great product. Look & feel of a stylish writing bureau, with all of the functionality of a modern computer desk - a great product. Compact and fits perfectly into contemporary Victorian house; desk width and depth fits neatly into alcove. I chose the white option, it looks like painted wood and is a slightly warm shade, not stark white. Good design of shelves eg A4 fits neatly into lower shelves. Slide out tray action is smooth. Very easy to assemble. 20 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great desk Looks great, good value for money. Fits perfectly. Easy to construct if you very carefully read the instructions and do not get too ahead of yourself.. As always great service. 10 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor quality for John lewis This desk failed miserably as soon as we started to construct it. The wood perished at certain screw insertion points and other screws were not long enough. Because the top is so heavy , when not constructed properly due to the above points, the desk is unstable. It took many hours of compensatory techniques to achieve a semi stable desk. I would not buy again 12 May 2015
