John Lewis Burford 2-drawer Sideboard
Just what we wanted with a small hiccup
We both really like this product. We had spent countless hours trawling through furniture shops and warehouses trying to find a sideboard that not only looked good but was the right size and did what we wanted it for.
The one hiccup was that when it arrived, on time, two of the 3 shelves were a mess. The veneer was 'blown', the trim on the side of the shelves was peeling and there was quiet a lot of black mold. It looked like they had been left on a damp factory floor for a month.
A phone call to John Lewis the following day as It arrived at about 8.30pm and they immediately offered to replace the whole item. They said they couldn't replace just the shelves beause of company policy. A week later the new sideboard arrived, again on time, and all was well.
We are very pleased with our purchase.

Handsome on the outside, less so on the inside
I bought this online without having seen one in the shop. I was disappointed to find that the handsome exterior conceals poor quality inside. The doors wobble, the shelves are held up with fragile-looking cheap pins, and the interior is finished in several different veneers, all of them cheap looking. The seams don't match up. Just not good enough for the price.

I loved the grain of the wood and the light oak finish.
For it size, this sideboard holds far more than I thought it would.
The cupboard space is generous, each with an adjustable shelf.
The 2 wide drawers are an excellent feature, as I can put two trays
of cultery in one and tablecloths, napkins and placemats in the other.

Stylish with deceptively large capacity.
Attractive wood patterns with solid construction and excellent finish. Having two wide drawers instead of the three often found on sideboards of this size is especially useful for large table mats and papers. It is not too deep, so does not dominate room space, but the three cupboard spaces are big enough to swallow much more than we imagined. Overall, really good value.
