Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Bedsitable We got the bed from the same Essence range and thought it would enhance our new bedroom, and it did. Lovely wood and lines. Very well build. Has good storage to put books and other stuff that I usually have next to my bed. It was easy to change the sway of the door, as we got the pair. Really happy with the bedside tables. 17 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent buy I bought this bedside table for my mother's room.It is excellent quality and reasonably priced. It offers good space for her belongings such as a few books, a few day and night creams, pens and papers and few other belongings. She is very happy with it. The item was also delivered by the agreed time. Thank you JL. 18 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy as Larry A couple of months ago I purchased the Essence bed and have now purchased two Essence 1 door bedside tables to match. They are all wonderful, very well made, of good quality, handsome looking and an excellent range. I am very satisfied with my choice. Delivery and service were superb. Well done John Lewis. 31 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Bought these to go with the bed frame, after extensive searching this range was the best and fully assembled, I don't do flat packs. Some reviewers are moaning about changing the cupboard door round, it would be useful if John Lewis would address this but it's easy enough to do. Looks fantastic with the matching bed frame, really pleased. 25 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality product, sensibly priced Perfect size for bedside tables. And not flat-packed mercifully, so the only work required is switching one of the doors round so that they open away from the bed, which was easy enough. 01 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely elegant look We bought this along with the bedframe from the same range. We're really please with the quality and the style which should stand the test of time and not look dated. Comes with instructions on how to change which way the door opens (hsuband reports it was quite hard work due to the solid oak!). 20 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essence 1 door bedside table in Oak I needed a further unit in my bedroom, I was delighted that they still produce the Essence brand. Ordered, delivered and very satisfied. 10 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but could be better We bought a pair to put either side of the bed. One of the doors needed removing to re-position to open the other direction. This meant taking the screws out. One screw snapped while another the head stripped immediately. Turned into a 90 minute job for my husband. The pilot holes also rather small. Ended up having to change the door on the second table. The top veneer on one table looks a bit odd on the edge but my husband was assured by the delivery man it was not damaged. (I wasn't present) Shame the back legs don't match the front ones. May still swap one out with John Lewis if they will allow it. Then I'll be a 5 star customer (assuming another is perfect!) 25 July 2013
