Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice desk! However!!! Really nice desk, easy to install and sturdy. However, the glass top does not allow the use of a laser mouse such as the Apple magig mouse without a mouse. It would have been helpful if this was noted on the sales info. If I was aware of this I probably would not have purchased 15 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks very stylish Looks stylish and space saving in a small study. We were told that the drawers would come as a fixed unit but we had to assemble them ourselves. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic desk Bought this as I needed a larger desk and as new desk was going in my bedroom I needed something stylish and unobtrusive - the design and style of this desk fits perfectly - gives me plenty of space for paperwork and laptop!! Contrary to the negative reviews on assembly - it took my boyfriend approx. 3-4hrs to assemble and he was very impressed with the bag of spares. I am extremely happy with my purchase and also the speedy delivery. 02 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zane Desk Superb when finished. It took 5hrs for me to build without assistance. Construction is not for beginners it is not an easy build. A suggestion re fitting the very heavy glass top. Place the glass on the floor flat, then with the desk upside down offer it up to the top. The top can then be screwed in place easily. 11 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like it After reading other reviews talking about the build time I was kind of looking forward to the challenge of seeing how quickly I could assemble this desk ;) Working by myself, it took me an hour and a half to assemble the drawer unit and drawers, another half an hour to assemble the desk itself, and near another half an hour to attach the runners to the drawers and get them into place. So, counting the time to unpack everything it took me the best part of three hours. Which is OK as long as you are not expecting it to only take half an hour. Lifting the glass top into place is the only thing that you might prefer to get help with. As soon as I picked it up I immediately regretted doing to by myself - but I got away with it. Another reviewer talked about the need to countersink the holes for attaching the drawer backs. This was already done on mine. I had some trouble lining up the drawer unit sides and had to sit on it to bang the pieces together. I think the issue was the angle of the pegs I'd screwed in, so try to make sure these go in straight. The supplied screwdriver can be used like a bradawl to clear the paint out of the holes - which helps make sure the pegs go in straight. The plastic film covering the drawer unit pieces and drawer fronts is so tightly on there I never would have realised I needed to peel that off if I hadn't read about it here. The biggest problem I had is that when I slotted the first drawer into place a bunch of the ball bearings popped out of the runners and can't be put back in place. But there are enough left that it still works - so I'm not sure if can be bothered asking for replacement runners. 02 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smart looking desk Bought the white version on-line without seeing the product in store but certainly not disappointed. The desk looks fabulous and as the drawers look to be floating gives a very modern look and also practical as can vacuum underneath. The glass desk top is a perfect width and length. You do need a mouse mat though which we didn't on our other desk. It took about 2 hours to build. The only way the product could be improved is by having the drawers 'soft closing'. They are a little bit stiff to open and close. But otherwise an excellent product. Thank you John Lewis. 07 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Desk is great but drawers are something else As someone who is as good at DIY as chimpanzee would be, I thought the instructions were excellent. All the parts were marked with the correct number so there was no trying to guess which part the diagram was referring to. It took me about 2 hours to complete but the drawers were a nightmare. I did exactly as instructed but when I felt some strong resistance I stopped forcing the drawers along the runner. Having read the comments, if you just force the drawers in, then it works !! I thought I might damage them, but they work in a fashion. They sort of grate along the runners rather than glide. other than it it was good. 05 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely desk Desk looks fab when up. This took two of two hours to put together - husband did most of it I just organised 'the parts and screws'. Make sure you clear holes before putting bits together as it is sprayed after holes drilled. I found it difficult to screw the plug screws in as needed a bit more grip and force. The most difficult part is putting the drawers in at the very end - you do need a bit more force than you think you can give it. In light of hat has been said about beads in the drawers I don't think they will be coming out again - so when we move the drawers will be taped in to be safe. 29 September 2014
