Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent delivery service I bought this chest as it has a fresh antique look, it was for a bedroom with sloping ceilings and was for my niece who has recently come to live with us. The delivery services was superb. The delivery arrived on an evening, all packaging was removed outside and 2 lovely men carried it all the way up to the top floor. This is no mean feat as it is a lot of steps and we have Zoffany wallpaper on the walls which I was worried they would damage. The piece is very heavy and despite this they completed the manoevre without a mark anywhere! They asked exactly where I wanted the chest positioning in the room and happily placed it there for me. I had noted comments about the smell by previous buyers but this was not noticed and my niece is very happy with all the storage the chest provides. 15 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Still waiting...maybe third time lucky I like the look of this chest - stylish, solidly made, although heavy. It is true about the smell of the paint preservative (polyurethane or something similar). I have had a chest for more than 2 weeks and fumes starting to fade if I keep the drawers shut. There is no need to sell products in this condition. The first chest had paint peeling off in several places. Surprised the delivery men did not see the dent (I had eye problems). The second one had a film of paint powder which came off in my hands.This was also evident to a lesser degree in the first one. I am now waiting for the third one, but left stuck with first one. 07 October 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made chest This item was delivered on time by polite staff who removed all of the packaging. We could not be happier with this purchase. 08 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed Having read negative reviews about the smell of new Downton range bedroom furniture I still decided to buy the 4 drawer chest because a) I figured that the manufacturer would by now have done something about it, and b) I suspected some exaggeration on the part of previous reviewers. I was disappointed to find that I was wrong on both counts! Add to this the inordinate weight of this chest (the main construction material is, I think, MDF) and I'm afraid that I cannot recommend this range. 15 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Still smells of chemicals after 6 months The look and build of this furniture is good quality - we have the wardrobe, 2x 4 drawer chests and 2 x bedside units. When they were delivered and assembled, I was very aware of the strong chemical smell of the furniture. Even now after 6 months with trying to the leave the doors / draws open to air, they still smell and I can smell the chemicals on our clothes that have been stored in them. I have tried draw liners and hanging fresheners but to no avail. They still smell really bad, and it is driving me mad. Thankfully, the furniture is in our spare bedroom so I don't have to sleep in there with the smell. So I would think carefully before purchasing from this range. 04 July 2013
