Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Capacity and Quality Was shown this item in store in a different colour. Ordered it in white. Item was delivered and asssembled in the time allocated. It is expensive for a chest of drawers but its quality speaks for itself. Drawers run beautifully and are very spacious. Managed to fit everything from a 7 drawer armoire into the 5 drawers of this chest. Considering purchasing another one for son's bedroom. 19 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Really poor service from JL As mentioned by previous reviewers they do smell quite strongly for a couple of weeks. If you need them to be lifted anywhere make sure you inform John Lewis, the team turned up and were unable to lift them upstairs so they sat in the hall for a while as JL failed to get in touch. However they are a stylish ,solid set of drawers. 08 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Chest Very pleased with this chest of drawers. Has substantial, deep drawers and the external finish is beautiful. Love the grey shade. Goes well with blues and creams in my room. Well made, and unlike previous reviews , I only experienced a slight paint smell for a couple of days. It did not transfer to clothing stored in the drawers. The delivery staff were very helpful and got it up a difficult staircase without a hitch. Highly recommend the chest and the on- time, careful delivery by JL. 24 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nice but! We really like the chest of drawers but were sad to see that not even a few months into having it, the bottom of one of the drawers has come away. We only store a toddler's clothes in it so nothing heavy. We were surprised to see that it is really not that strong that it can't hold the weight of some t shirts for a two year old! I would think again before buying! This is a problem you'd expect with a cheaper chest. Not one costing hundreds of pounds 19 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great chest just recd delivery of chest of drawers. great quality, deep drawers, also useful with the dowels in to stop u pulling drawers out too far. would recommend, looks great in our new england themed bedroom. still very heavy even without drawers. 30 March 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very pleasing in appearance We purchased two of these chests,one 5 drawer, one 4 drawer, delivered a week ago. They are very well constructed with deep drawers and an excellent match for our bedroom. However I have two criticisms. Firstly the fumes given off by the finish are very strong, especially when first released from their plastic wrapping and we are still struggling with them. We have not yet filled the drawers hoping that the smell will diminish quite a bit more first. Secondly, a more minor detail, is that the drawers do not come out of the chest easily which made it very difficult to move these heavy pieces of furniture in the bedroom even unfilled. 01 November 2012
