John Lewis Essence 1 Door Bedside Table, Oak
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.

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.

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!).

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.

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!)

Another excellent buy to match the wardrobe
Really pleased with the 2 bedside tables which match the excellent quality wardrobe. Another fine John Lewis purchase.

Really lovely, good quality bedside table. Love it! Perfect height next to divan bed, the wood feels and looks great, and it's a lovely size and well-made. Good too that it can easily be swapped to left or right-handed cupboard door for which side of the bed you put it. It's a classic design we'll look forward to using for many years to come. Only bought one so far to 'try it out', but will definitely be getting the second ASAP.

Disappointed there were not left and right options for either side of the bed. As a result it is awkward to open one of the bedside tables as it opens towards you making it hard to see what's inside.
