Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product but quality let's it down We really like the design of the desk and it fits perfectly in the space we have available. Unfortunately the fixings supplied with the product are poor quality. The aluminium plugs break very easily if you apply any sort of force to tighten up the joints. I ended up using two steel brackets to attach the cross piece between the legs. The assembly instructions are also incorrect as they show all 8 screws attached with washers and in fact only 4 of them should be. One of the screw holes is over sized so it doesn't tighten up. The joint of the legs and top piece don't line up well. But all in all with a little handiwork it is fine, and I read the reviews so was expecting some problems with assembly. 30 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good desk High quality wooden desk, managed to put it together myself in about 30 minutes, feels very sturdy despite being rather top heavy. One thing to note, the nuts and bolts are taped to the side of a polystyrene block which I nearly threw away, so make sure you get it before the masses of packaging make it hard to find. 29 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted I shopped around to find the best desk for my purposes. It was to fit in to my newly refurbished kitchen. And it absolutely does - both in size and in style. It is just perfect for my home admin/paperwork. I have added the matching filing cabinet which slides under the desk perfectly. Delighted with my purchases. 26 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by The replacement desk is good! The first desk came without assembly instructions so downloaded them from JL website. Then discovered desk was damaged, with a split in the wood on the underside of the "hutch" where a screw had been over-tightened, and consequent misalignment. Random selection of fittings which didn't match the checklist - duplicates of some items, others missing. Had definite impression that it was a returned item which had been repackaged and sent out again. Contacted the store immediately and given a date for uplift and replacement. New desk arrived on time - wonderful delivery drivers helped us unpack, made sure it was undamaged and all parts present.. New assembly instructions different from those downloaded - clearer, and easy to follow. My husband, reasonably experienced at assembling furniture, put it together in the estimated 20 mins - only needed a second person to lift it when it was finished. It looks good in the space, it's functional, good value, and the replacement is good quality. Can't fault JL service to resolve the initial problem. 20 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect home office desk This lovely loft desk has fitted perfectly into an alcove creating a useful work space. It is attractive as well as functional. All in all the perfect solution for a part of a room which was previously wasted space. A great purchase. 09 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oak desk good, follow instructions and read them before starting 15 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love my new desk! waited for this desk to come back in stock for a few weeks, and it really was worth the wait! took two of us only about 30 minutes to assemble and I spent the whole weekend at this wonderful desk! it provides for a great working space, whether you are studying or doing paperwork and the little hatch shelves really help to keep things tidy and organised. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely piece to anyone, especially at such fantastic price! 30 December 2012
