John Lewis Abacus 5 Shelf Bookcase
Change in manufacturing - veneer on underside of shelves
I have a couple of these already from a couple of years ago and I'm really pleased with them. Easy to assemble, sturdy and look really good as well.
I have recently ordered another and the shelves are no longer the same, there is no oak veneer on the underside of the shelves which they previously had. It's just a solid brown colour underneath.
Not necessarily a big issue, but it looks unfinished to me and I'll just know it's there!

This bookcase is of excellent quality, extremely sturdy and reasonably priced. I am delighted with it, it took about an hour / hour and a half to put together and now looks great in my room.
Highly recommend as a cheap (ish) but high quality bookcase. Pay a little bit more then Ikea stuff and reap the rewards in my opinion.

Quick delivery and easy to assemble
It's not a 'wow' piece of furniture but it does what it says on the tin, is easy to assemble and is now stacked with booked. No complaints.

just right for the study
We really like this bookcase although I wouldn't load every shelf with heavy books as they do bow a bit, we have put a few books and ornaments on the shelves and its very useful.

Solid easy to assemble bookcase.
Shelves to close together so not enough to hold box files upright unless you adjust the shelves then that leaves a very small shelve space

Good use of space
Keen to make the most of a small office, we secured this bookcase on top of the matching cupboard. Books right up to the ceiling now. Looks good.
