House by John Lewis Stride Entertainment Unit for TVs up to 47-inch
Well made and easy to assemble
This unit is just perfect for me. It comes with easy to understand instructions and it does not take too long to assemble. The quality of the unit is very good and the different parts fit and locate together easily (which is not always the cases with other suppliers).

easy as pie
This is so much nicer than it looks in the photo, excellent quality and very easy to put together. Loads of room and the one door stops it looking too heavy. Would highly recommend.

Functional and attractive
We bought this one because it had very positive reviews, and we agree with them! It was easy to assemble (took about 45 minutes across two people) and feels very solid. A friend remarked that it looked very mid-century, which was what we had hoped! Time will tell how it stands up to rough treatment from a toddler but so far it has not shown any damage from the bashes received.

Well made and lovely contemporary/retro feel
We were looking for something contemporary, with a retro feel to it for our living room. We were so impressed with the styling of this unit which is at really quite a good price compared to some of the other TV units. It required more assembly than we were anticipating but we didn't have too many difficulties. It is well made and we could fit everything inside EXCEPT the blu-ray player - it wasn't quite deep enough. One thing I would have liked is for the cable holes to just be in the one side - so that if the door is covering the sky box etc then you have a nice display shelving on the other side. However because of the hole in the back, this isn't possible :(

Much nicer once built
Initially I was disappointed, as the oak veneer looked similar to a cheap unit I had previously. Once built it looked much better, especially with the leg design. Be aware, I put the sides on the wrong sides and the shelves didn't line up, it then took me another hour to fix it. I managed to build it on my own. Take note that it it is a much lighter shade than you see on the website. Price may be a bit expensive for a self assembly veneer piece.

We bought this piece for our living room, and absolutely love it! It was a bit tricky to put together, because of some poor labelling in the instruction manual but we got there after about 45 minutes.
The unit holds a good range of set top boxes and consoles - as well as DVDs and such like.

Attractive and Easy to Build
A great, sturdy piece of furniture on which to store your TV and hi-fi equipment. Particularly nice for a piece of furniture to have legs, which seems rare in the Swedish design-school of furniture manufacture.
The unit is dispatched with plenty of clear instructions and it was easy for one person to build (took about an 40 mins).
Couple of small points for people like me who are too lazy to check things in the shop and do it all online:
- The door on the front slides, rather than swings.
- Be aware of deep equipment that you plan on putting on the shelves as I found some equipment is too deep and I had to put it on top - not a fault with the product mind you.
- One improvement might be to split the back panel in two so you could choose to leave one side open - per the previous issue.

Nice piece of furniture. Comes flat pack but no problem assembling it. Only criticism is that no matter what height you have the shelves, you can't fit DVD. So cupboard mainly for equipment not storage. Still very pleased with it though.
