John Lewis Gel Dining Chair
Stylish & spangly but watch self assembly
We bought 4 in different boiled sweet colours and they look great with the clear glass Pearl table. The effect is a light, bright and see-thru dining area which is very good for a smallish space.
HOWEVER! The self assembly hasn't worked with the amethyst chair - had to have 2 replacement chairs because the legs are out of alignment. For the price they should be perfect, and because of the apparent "delicate" nature of the product, assembly should be a precise fit. Hope ours stay intact!

look great - break easily!
We bought 8 of these - they look really great, but 2 of them have split in the same sort of way the reviewer below describes (no misuse at all). I paid for a new one the first time but now I'm hoping I can get a replacement free too!
JL please let me know!

Bought 4 of these chairs in different colours with round black glass table for our dining kitchen. Comes in 2 pieces, chair & chrome base and very easy to put together. Looks fab!!

Beware of breakage
I purchased three of these very stylish chairs about 18 months ago. Earlier this year, whilst just sitting on one of them at the kitchen table. All of a sudden there was a very large 'crack' sound which was very startling. The perspex had split from back to front.
I am of average height and weight and was simply just sitting quietly reading at the table when this happened. I took the chair back to JLP Nottingham and received an apology and a replacement..
However....yesterday exactly the same happened again in very similar circumstances!
I intend to make a formal complaint and seek suitable reimbursement for all three. So....be warned these chairs are not necessarly the good buy that they seem.

Beautiful and comfortable
These chairs are lovely to look at and easy to assemble. Don't use the spacers unless you want to stack them. I bought one in each colour and the glass table. When the sun shines they look stunning as the colours reflect onto the floor

We bought four chairs to go with our glass table for our kitchen. They look fantastic. Really sturdy. I was a bit unsure whether to get them having read the reviews but so glad I did. Easy to put together, look fantastic, very comfortable and everyone who has seen them has commented on how great they look.

Purchased two of these chairs and when they were taken out of the box the central fitting on the legs was cracked and fell apart, on both chairs. It seemed to be a very thin material and not the same as the metal legs. Totally impractical, very poor quality. Shame as the colours are beautiful but these are going back to John Lewis.
