Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value and nice looking An excellent addition to my home office - takes lots of A4 and foolscap box files. The Abacus range is pleasing to look at and a very decent finish for the price. 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loads of space I bought three of these plus filing cabinets and corner desk. I love them! They are great quality with lots of space. Of all the furniture these bookshelves were the trickiest to put together, mainly because they are so big and the shelf supports are fiddly. I did it on my own but really you need two people. 16 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Large capacity but some corners cut in quality This is a large bookcase that stores loads. The shelves are plenty deep enough and you can adjust the height. You may not need to use them all. Disappointingly half of the shelves (the lower ones) are not veneered underneath, presumably because it can't be seen. This seems cheap, and these aren't the cheapest book shelves. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent storage - no more books piled om the floor! This is the second bookcase we have ordered from JL. It was easy to assemble and is a real boon for storing books of different sizes. 30 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not usual JL standard I was disappointed in the quality of this bookcase. Couldn't find any solid oak just veneered chipboard and the back panel is plastic printed with the pattern of wood. It's a bit tacky and not as good as John Lewis usually supplies. It's cheap so my advice would be to spend a bit more and get a better quality bookcase. 03 February 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Robust piece of furniture This is a nice looking piece of kit reasonably easy to put together it would have helped to have the parts numbered. It was a bit parsimonious that the underside of the lower shelves have a "paper" finish instead of oak 27 November 2012
