John Lewis Abacus Wide Cupboard
Lovely cupboard but watch out for missing items
Very happy with the unit and a breeze to put together by myself. Do watch out for any missing parts however. There were 2 screw missing from one of the hinges (not separate to the hinges but already screwed in on 3 of them) and apart from having a new unit delivered and then the old unit collected (separately) there appears to be no way to get these 2 tiny screws delivered. Disappointing as the unit itself is lovely.

Lovely piece of furniture
this product required assembly, it was easy for one person to assemble within 40 minutes, instructions were easy to follow, very good quality and it looks good too.

Good solid piece of office furniture. Husband took a couple of hours to assemble with not too much bad language so assume was reasonably easy! Looks ok for office but bit of a gripe that veneer was rough, and liable to snag and badly finished on top edge, where it shows above doors. However after a couple of hours assembly could not be bothered to contact JL for replacement with the attendant hassle, waiting for delivery etc. so will live with it as not life threatening. Now decided to order bookshelf to go on top to complete. Not bad for money.

Good looking, and easy to assemble. Minor niggles
I have bought several items from this range, and spent a Saturday afternoon assembling them. Assembly wasstraightforward - similar to IKEA.
The items all look good, but 2 niggles:
1) The desk surface scrathes easily as it is not very hard. I've coated it with Ronseal Diamond and that made a big difference without affecting the colour.
2) The cupboards and drawer units are just a bit shorter in height than the desks - by about 5mm. That makes the flow of the worksurface unattractive.
But overall - a good range.

Instructions a breeze.

Good looking and sturdy cabinet
I ordered this cabinet for some extra storage and work surface. It wasn't the cheapest around.
It was self assembly but went together really well and the instructions were easy to follow. Unlike some self assembly furniture this is a very sturdy unit and looks very stylish.
I am very happy with it and feel that it is worth the extra.
