Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent small desk I bought this desk for an office/third bedroom scheme. It is sturdy, well made and of excellent quality. My I Mac computer fits neatly on it and the drawer is a very helpful and subtle storage area for papers etc. When an extra bedroom is needed, a mirror can quickly replace the computer - and a dressing table is created! I fully recommend this versatile piece of furniture. 23 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great compact desk Very easy to assemble and looks great with other wooden furniture. Compact but fits the alcove in the room required perfectly and good size to hold laptop and printer. Drawer is also a good size. Would recommend for smaller room or office. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent small desk Excellent desk for a small study. Easy to assemble,good quality and.value for money. 17 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed Poor quality for the price - very cheap mechanism for the drawer Actually putting it together is tricky too and the assembly instructions are insufficient - starting with the key moment where you are supposed to detach the drawer - but can't - and refer to an unhelpful picture I'm sending it back if I can 30 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed! I recently ordered and received this table. My husband built it for me and we were extremely disappointed with the finish of the table. The drawer doesn't quiet shut, always pops open a little and the wood and surface of the table is very rough, unfinished and quiet frankly ugly. I could easily cut my skin on it. The finish is extremely disappointing given John Lewis's high standards. I wanted a simple and elegant table, but I have ended up with something I don't even like to look at. 09 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Little Desk Perfect for my son's bedroom to do his homework at. 30 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
