The couple’s extravagant upgrade of the decor was supposedly influenced by a desire to get rid of the ‘John Lewis furniture problem’ left over by Theresa May.
The description of the flat – attributed to a visitor – was included in a recent Tatler article on Ms Symonds.
But the outlet store fasted to satirize the obvious discovery as it took to Twitter to recommend it had something for ‘nearly’ everyone.
It comes after the Electoral Commission launched an examination into how the makeover was funded.
John Lewis appeared to mock Boris Johnson and his bride-to-be Carrie Symonds as the Prime Minister deals with a probe into the controversial repair of their Downing Street flat.
The couple’s luxurious upgrade of the design was apparently motivated by a desire to get rid of the ‘John Lewis furniture headache’ and the department store was quick to poke fun at the apparent revelation
John Lewis today shared an image of one of their shipment trucks park outside Downing Street with the caption: ‘Good idea we have a recycling service for old pre-loved furnishings’
John Lewis took to social media with a post that checked out: ‘Time for an interiors refresh? We pride our Home Design Service on having something for * nearly * everyone.’
Simply hours before it stated: ‘Phew, the John Lewis social group have just completed an all the time conceptualizing session to find ways for people to speak about us on Twitter … Have we missed out on anything?’
The business has also shared a picture of among their delivery lorries park outside Downing Street with the caption: ‘Good idea we have a recycling service for old pre-loved furnishings’.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer’s representative stated ‘unlike the Prime Minister he does not turn his nose up to John Lewis believing it’s too downmarket’ and ‘would not invest ₤ 840 per roll on wallpaper’.
It follows the Electoral Commission said there were ‘reasonable grounds to presume that an offense or offenses may have happened’ during the financing of the revamp of the Prime Minister’s flat above No 11.

Even a United States academic who shares his name with the retailer, has actually stated he has gotten ‘hundreds’ of messages relating to the Downing St flat. He stated he was ‘kinda harmed’ that the shop’s furnishings had actually apparently been described as a ‘headache’.
Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds’ extravagant update of the decoration was apparently motivated by a desire to eliminate the ‘John Lewis furniture nightmare’ left over by Theresa May.
The taxpayer funds a ₤ 30,000 yearly allowance, but the redecoration – supposedly including the company Soane, co-founded by designer Lulu Lytle – stretched beyond that.
Some reports suggest the upgrades hit the ₤ 200,000 mark, while a leaked email recommended Tory peer Lord Brownlow was making a ₤ 58,000 donation to the Conservatives ‘to cover the payments the celebration has already made on behalf of the soon-to-be-formed ‘Downing Street Trust’.
Mr Johnson’s previous adviser Dominic Cummings stated he told Mr Johnson ‘his strategies to have donors covertly spend for the restoration were unethical, absurd, possibly illegal’.
The Prime Minister today insisted he ‘paid for the refurbishment myself’ and stated that he had complied with the ministerial code.
