Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Modern, stylish and functional It fits my room perfectly and holds a massive amount of books, interspersed with strategically placed ornaments, without looking cluttered. It goes well with my Calia sideboard and side table which I also purchased recentlly. Very happy with my choice. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful and sylish I needed a bookcase for my new home office. The trouble is that most bookcases are boring; straight 'up-and-down' with only the colour giving any kind of relief. We saw this product in John Lewis and it stopped us in our tracks. It isn't cheap, but it doesn't look cheap either. The ends are as interesting as face-on. The deep shelf takes over-sized books and box files. This is a purchase that I am extremely happy with and would recommend it to anyone who needs this sort of storage and/or display. An exceptional piece of furniture. 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal office storage Excellent for files and books. It is sturdy and the shelves are a good height. Four of the shelves are 30cm high (and accommodate box files on their sides) and one is 43cn high which will accommodate box files standing upright. John Lewis website staff should note that is the kind of useful information which is usually missing from their product descriptions. The bookcase matches the online picture well. Quite an expensive bookcase but exactly the size and features we needed (I've been looking for what seems like a long time) and we are really pleased with it. The usual excellent service from the delivery guys - taking away the packaging is the kind of thing that makes all the difference and it's why I always buy from John Lewis when I can. 13 April 2013
