As the UK enters into a second lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, shoppers are looking to make their working from home set up as comfortable as possible.

Whether you are studying, working or just want to revamp the spare room into a study, there is one item that’s essential: a desk.

Amazon’s top-rated desk, Cherry Tree Furniture Compact Foldable Laptop Desktop Table, is just the ticket to save you taking over the kitchen table, or sitting on your bed for your 9 to 5.

Why we rate it

The Cherry Tree Furniture Compact Foldable Computer Desk Laptop Desktop Table has received glowing reviews for how compact, practical and stylish it is.

The design is made from MDF and steel, and measures 74cm in height, while the actual desktop size is 80 x 45cm, which is big enough to hold a laptop and notebooks.

The desk features steel legs, which fold in and outwards, and it folds flat so it is easy to put up, dismantle and store away, making it ideal for those who are limited on space.

The desk comes in a selection of colours: all black, a walnut shade with black legs, or a white stand and yellow table top.

It was available in all white too, but that colour is currently sold out.

The Cherry Tree Desk costs an affordable £46.99 on Amazon.

What the reviews say

With more than 1,700 glowing reviews, of which almost 80% have been rated the desk five stars, this is a working from home must-have.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • "Easily my best buy in lockdown. Ideal for working from home if you are short of space. It will take a laptop, A4 paper/notebook, coffee mug and a small lamp. Better quality than I had expected at the price and both sturdy and stable."

  • “Beautiful, beautiful desk! I rent a small room so I wanted something foldable and not too big. This is the perfect option. I bought the wooden one and looks way more expensive than what it actually is.”

  • “It is perfect for what I need! There's space to hold my 13" laptop and a note book beside that. It also looks nice and blends in with the other furniture in the room - it does not look cheap! It is also normal desk height (in case anyone was worried about sitting at it).”

  • “Very compact size and easy to move, it fits anywhere.”

  • “Doesn't rock around, sits evenly on carpet and is all-in-one, so simply opens up straight out of box. When finished using was going fold and store away until I need an extra worktop some time in future. Price for this was very reasonable for what it is.”

  • “I only bought this little table originally as a stop-gap because it had the exact dimensions I needed. Nevertheless, it is a practical and pleasing little thing so it is destined for a permanent home with me.”
