Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why doesn't it fall over??? Fantastic product, small footprint but holds lots! Great where space Is a premium. Would certainly buy more. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by John Lewis Sapiens Bookcase Great delivery service from John Lewis as expected. This product is not only functional, it is a uniquely attractive way to display books where space is at a premium, plasterboard walls do not permit floating shelves and where a freestanding bookcase simply won't do. Beautiful in its from, taking up floor space equivalent to a standard magazine yet holding in excess of 50 books, thanks to its sturdy steel frame, I purchased another so they sit mirroring themselves at opposite ends of the room. Assembly is straightforward though a third hand would have been helpful attaching the base plate to the spine, after which you simply slot the floating shelves into place. The provided Allen key is the only tool required. The case was up and stacked within 10 minutes. Highly recommend 16 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good with issues Wanted a small profile bookcase for my little living room. This does the job but putting it together was more difficult than I expected so that's why it doesn't get a 5 star review. All you have to do is bolt the base to the tower column and then slot in the shelves. The weight of this bookcase made this trickier than I expected but more annoying is the fact that the holes were not drilled correctly in the base (or the wrong bolts were supplied) so we had to go out and purchase new bolts to fit. After a frustrating start I am now happy with the bookcase in place. 12 April 2015
