John Lewis Loft Desk
nightmare to assemble, wrong screws and all
we have purchased 2 of these desks, Both were supplied with screws too big to complete assembly. After a trip to hardware store we bought correct screws...,one desk is now assembled but the second was impossible, as holes are significantly out of alignment. We are so disappointed as we expect better from John Lewis (come back Ikea, all is forgiven). I am awaiting reply from John Lewis customer support (ansaphone on at weekends) and will update review when i know what's going on!

great compact desk
just the right size for my teenage daughter -easy to put together ( she managed to do it all on her own whilst I was out!)
Really happy with design as it doesn't take up to much space, very good quality for the price

Solid Small(ish) Desk
Bought this for my home office as a second desk. Needed to be relatively tall and open at the back as it has to fit in front of a radiator and not block the heat. Just the job. Arrived on time (thanks JL) and in perfect condition. Self assembly easy enough, took me about half an hour unassisted. No problems with alignment of holes, missing parts or anything. Sliding mechanism works well to give extra layout space in a small room. Pleased with this item and would recommend.

I was looking for a compact desk for my daughter's small bedroom and this ticked all the boxes. Small footprint with an extendable desktop to enable a comfortable workspace, neutral colour and very cool layout for all her nick-nacks. A little tricky to put together and a couple of the fittings fell apart. Initially it didn't feel very sturdy; however it has survived well so far. Would definitely recommend.

This is a great desk, very sturdy and a great looker. It was easy to put together in under 30 minutes by myself and all parts well made and fitted together properly. The fitting screws and bolts are metal making it a strong desk. Very happy, would definitely recommend it.

Lovely desk but be aware
This is a lovely desk and really useful too especially if you're sharing it with others. Good pockets to put different bits and bobs into. Be on the look out for any chipped bits/damage despite how well it's packaged. My husband found it straightforward to assemble, but he was a bit bemused by the number of left over screws. Having said that the desk is still standing strong.

Lovely little desk
Fit perfectly in loft space.
No problem to put it up.

Disappointed with quality
For brand and costs the product is disappointing. Quality poor, veneer edges scraggy, veneer on one leg had peeled off on unpacking, I have since stuck it down.
I normally enjoy putting furniture packs together and have quite a lot of experience. This was unpleasant, holes were not aligned, edges of parts not aligned and Allen key got rounded edges quickly so had to use another. But as I need to get room ready for guest, and I can't face going through rigmarole of returning it and waiting for delivery, I'll hang on to it.
The only positive is that the design is great and looks good in place.
