Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing quality and poor value for money but looks lovely I have spent a huge amount of money on John Lewis furniture over the last few months and this is the first item in which I have been disappointed. The website states that this item requires "partial self-assembly." It doesn't. It needs to be fully assembled, which isn't a huge problem as it's easy to put together but I would not have expected this for a unit that costs such a large amount of money. I tend to avoid self-assembly wherever possible as it isn't my greatest talent, but even I found it easy to do. Unfortunately the first book shelf to arrive was missing a dowel hole, so I had to wait a whole week for another part to be delivered with pieces of bookcase lying across my living room in the interim. This was extremely disappointing and something I have never come across before. Reading previous reviews, it appears that I am not the only one to have this problem, so do check when it is delivered. The unit looks nice now that it is up but I am not sure it's worth the money I spent on it. However it's hard to find decent walnut modern furniture so would probably buy it again. 03 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing for the money Whilst I knew this bookcase would need assembling it was rather disappointing how much assembly was required considering the price tag. One of the parts had a missing dowel hole (it had just not been drilled) and another had a chip in the wood veneer. Pretty poor quality control for a product sold by John Lewis. I decided to keep the bookcase - once built it is sturdy and stylish but the poor quality control led to just a three star rating. 29 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by looks good, well designed, stylish and contemporary The unit is made of wood- veneered MDF with glass shelves. The overall look and effect is excellent and the quality of the veneering is pretty convincing. Altough it looks good, I cannot help thinking that it might as well be made of proper wood and save on the manufacturing process to make it look like it isn't MDF, however convincing the end result might be. So, yes it looks nice and the glass shelves add a contemporary touch. I think a bit expensive for what it is but I am happy enough. 23 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased: looks stylish, easy to construct I bought these shelves for our living room where we don't have a lot of space and I was keen not to get something that made the room look too crowded or dark. These shelves are perfect. The design is light and stylish. The space between shelves is also unusually generous which means you can put LPs and larger books on them (this was a key priority for us#. They were delivered on time and, although you do have to construct them, the instructions were easy to follow. It says you need two people to put them together but I #short, pregnant lady) managed fine on my own. I would highly recommend them. 16 October 2012
