Q & As

John Lewis Writex Desk, 90cm 4.4 5 62 62
Very poor! Not usual JL quality Really annoyed. Just the size I wanted, but it's just been delivered (there is no damage to the box), and so many rough edges! No way could you work at this desk, - you would damage your clothes! I now have to lug it back to the local JL shop, which I am really cross about!! It's possible the edges could be rubbed down, but the edging "strip" along the front looks to be "peeling away" already. BIG disappointment. 13 August 2014
A lovely desk. This is a lovely desk. Solid, well made, practical and pretty. There's a little bit of self assembly required, but all very straight forward. The instructions advised that two people are needed to put it together, which is fine, but it took me 20 minutes to add the legs and get it in place by myself. I would definitely recommend it, very pleased! 05 August 2014
Disappointing - looks worn. We ordered this desk in white and after assembling it noticed that there were a number of chips where the paint had come off particularly on the corners. Also paint coming off on the corners of the drawer. Nice design but disappointing quality and looks worn despite being brand new. 05 July 2014
Great slimline desk This desk was easy to assemble and fits perfectly in the room - it is very neutral and would work with both modern or more antique styles. It is sturdy but not bulky. 22 June 2014
Love it... ...once I had figured out how to get the draw back in to the finished desk. Otherwise easy to construct and looks great. 10 June 2014
Lovely piece of furniture I saw this in a John Lewis store and liked it so much that I ordered it online the week after. It's a lovely piece of well designed furniture which wouldn't look out of place in an uber trendy architects office. It's very easy to assemble, it took me less than 15 minutes from start to finish. It's made my home office look very swish replacing an old and tired desk which was there previously. Great value for money. 08 May 2014
Great desk for small office I was looking for a desk to create a small office space in my spare room and this is absolutely perfect for that. I bought it in white and looks very discreet in the corner of my room. The bar along the bottom is nice to rest your feet on too. The drawer comes already built in so don't worry about the faff of constructing this. Instructions call for 2 people to construct but I live on my own and only took me 20 mins to put together. Great value for money and speedy delivery, as always from John Lewis. 26 April 2014
Nice desk There is very little to do here in constructing the desk. The only thing that was a faf were the screws that fix the supporting cross piece to the legs on either side. You can only manoeuvre the alan key about a quarter on a turn, which makes tightening up these screws a job that seems to go on for ever. The desk top easily screws onto the legs & thats it, your desk is ready. I have my Apple desk top computer on mine & it fits comfortably, giving plenty of room for the keyboard & mouse (plus other bits & bobs). The draw works well. Plenty of room for documents, pens etc. This is a good solid desk. No complaints from me. 15 April 2014
