Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent student desk I recently bought 4 of these for a houseful of students - they are very easy to assemble, attractive and sturdy, and excellent value for money. I would also recommend the bookcases in this range. 17 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good value but not very sturdy The first one arrived with a broken piece and was returned. The second one required me to drill 3 holes that were missing on the top piece. I expect better from John Lewis. 10 November 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basic office desk Easy to assemble and for the price you can't really go wrong. It looks smart as well. 13 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Second Faulty Desk I have three of these desks at my business - but I have had to send two back because the pre drilled holes were either not there or non-existant.. Extremely frustrating when you're in the middle of assembling! Not what you expect of John Lewis. A five star product if you don't get a faulty one. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Solid Desk This desk was easy to put up, took about 45 minutes alone would have been quicker with 2 people. Solid build quality with a gorgeous finish that gives the product a premium look. The build quality is excellent, all the pieces fit together flush and the desk sits solidly with no wobble. As a student I would recommend this product, it may be cheap but quality is not sacrificed. 17 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dexter Office Desk Excellent choice for my son who is starting university. Delivered promptly by friendly delivery personnel. Easy to construct and very robust. I have now purchased three of these and have been very pleased with the quality. 08 September 2015
