John Lewis Writex Desk, 90cm
This modern desk has proved perfect for our home office. We bought it in white lacquered wood and it goes perfectly with our iMac. The drawer is exactly right for the keyboard and mouse, as well as stationery items. It is a quality ipiece of furniture of Danish design and represents excellent value for money.

While it was quite obvious that this was a quality product, I was very disappointed to see that the first instruction (removing the drawer) was impossible to carry out, possibly because two-left side runners had been installed. Fortunately my boyfriend is extremely good at DIY and after some fiddling round he was able to drop the drawer down to allow access to attach the legs. If he hadn't been around I would have had to return it. Hence the 3-star rating. Now that it's up and in one piece, I'm very pleased.

Very happy with purchase
Very sturdy. Requires 2 people to put together easily. Very neat if you only have a small office space. Fits my 27" imac. If any pen marks on white surface use a little diluted nail varnish remover on cotton wool and the mark will disappear.

Excellent desk BUT BEWARE the desk needs to be attached to wall
Ordered this desk as fitted it to small space, arrived and all looked lovely ,however soon discovered the instructions stated that the desk must be attached to wall with 2 screws(this is not mentioned on web site)
As always John lewis refunded without any problems.

Lovely little desk
First desk I received was chipped on one corner, but John Lewis did an exchange...only snag was that it then took two weeks from the date of ordering it to actually get a desk that was in perfect condition. I've put it together minus two screws as I can't work out how to get the drawer out to fix the screws in...instructions are not clear and I don't want to force the drawer. Will follow up with the Furniture After Sales Team soon. The desk is lovely though and perfect for the small bedroom...would definately recommend it.

Don't Hesitate To Buy
Not much to complain about here at all. The delivery time was right to the wire (1:30 PM, with 2 PM being the latest it would turn up). But, the delivery guys brought it in and were very pleasant. The desk took me 20 mins to set up and I'm fairly bad at doing these types of things. Seems sturdy and well made and fits into a very tight space, which is great if you're struggling for room. Its first job has been to function as a platform for my computer as I write this review. Job done!

I have now had four of these tables delivered. All have been damaged, mostly on the corners. Not the quality or the service you would expect from JL. Very disappointed.

Very useful product
I bought this table for my son. This table is simple in design, well made, sturdy and very easy to essemble. It took me 15 mins to put together. It's a great addition to my son's bedroom so much so that I am thinking of getting one for my daughter.
We are very pleased with both the product and the delivery time from John Lewis.
