Well made easy to put together

Very good product - well made and delivered promptly.

Customer rating:


Nice simple desk as expected.

Quick delivery, small imperfections to one item, photos online could be better as the items do look different in real life

Customer rating:


It was a shame that it was damaged slightly and that we now have to wait two months for a replacement

Very helpful especially with the challenges around the slight product damage

Customer rating:


Lovely looking table. Just as expected. Seems sturdy and well made. Straightforward to put together.

Would definitely use again. Kept me well informed as to delivery times.

Customer rating:


LOVE the desk, it's stylish and simple and will suit any setting. A lovely product at a reasonable price, and believe me I looked around before buying! I chose not to have it assembled by the delivery men and anyone who can use a screwdriver, or allen key in this case, will be able to attach the four legs to the top. It took less than 20 mins. It seems sturdy so far. Overall I'm more than happy with the service and product and wouldn't hesitate to order from Garden Trading again.

Item was pre-ordered and due in at the end of October, but was delivered mid-October so that was impressive! I was updated throughout regarding delivery and cannot fault the service

Customer rating:


Love my beautiful desk; very easy to assemble with clear instructions.

Terrific service - love my Ash desk, which was despatched very quickly particularly given the disruption caused by Covid-19. Very easy to assemble with clear instructions.

Customer rating:


Terrible. Not the sort of quality I would have expected. Nice design but first was damaged within the box. Second is not perfect along the edges. Stupid ties to achor it to wall on one side - need to be unscrewed if you want to remove and ludicrous non-removable sticker on the top of the desk!!!!!

Terrible experience. For the second time within a month the goods were damaged and had to be returned, some due to totally inadequate packaging and others already damaged in box. Ashwicke desk is nice looking but not the quality I was led to expect. Also they don't tell you it has ties on one the back of one side (presumably to anchor it to a wall) which you have to remove if you don't want to anchor it to a wall... And a non-removable sticker on the bottom left of the opposite side - top side up. Why on earth would you put a non-removable sticker on the top side of the desk right where you can see it, and spoil a nice peice of wood? Who would buy a piece of furniture with a sticker on the top??? Absolutely ludicrous. why not put it underneath if you must put it on? Needless to say it's not there now thanks to some excellent sticky stuff remover, a great deal of risk and a lot of patience. The Carver Chair is nice - heavy and looks good. Thankfully it was not damaged.

Customer rating:


Fantastic desk at a great price. It looks very sophisticated with a medium/light-toned wood. The legs are made of solid wood while the top is a wood composite, however, the surface has a beautiful natural wood grain which makes it look very elegant.

Love their products both in design and quality. Excellent shipping. Great overall.

Customer rating:


Really nice table, exactly as it looks in photo

Table exactly as described and reasonable delivery given Covid-19.

Customer rating:


Expensive appearance at very reasonable cost. One classy, versatile table. Self-assembly that took 10 mins and very easy to do. Thinking I might just buy the chair to go with it!

Beautiful, high-quality furniture and great customer service. Cannot recommmend highly enough.
