John Lewis Kerala Low Wide, 4 + 3 Drawer Chest
Beautiful on the outside not so much inside
From the outside this is a truly beautiful product and looks fantastic in our room.
However, disappointingly the item is merely stained and is chip-wood rather than solid wood. The top 5 drawers are as they seem however the bottom 2 larger drawers do not have sides as high as the front of the drawer but only as high as those 2 above them. This means that you loose a considerable amount of space on the bottom drawers.
Inside, some of the chip wood has not been sanded leaving it rough to the touch and we cannot use it for more delicate items that may snag on the rough surface.
Overall a beautiful product on the outside but disappointing on the inside.

Lived up to Expectations
Looks as good in the wood as in the pictures. Drawers work OK despite primitive wood on wood sliders. All drawers are unique and lock into place before one discovers they 've been slotted into the wrong space. Square knobs can either be screwed tightly into place or left slightly loose but squarely aligned, arguably a design flaw. Delivery crew were less than helpful, couldn't wait to get out: didn't put the drawers in place (see above) nor adjust the central support. Unexpected "don't use polish" care instructions.

These drawers are fantastic. They look great and have got loads of compliments from friends and family when they have come round. Bought with the Kerala Bedstead as well. Just love the colour of the wood and the size of the unit (it is quite big). Fits loads of clothes and bed linen in so really helps with keeping the room clear!
Would recommend to anyone with a good size room!

Having shopped around alot, I always returned to John Lewis for this piece of Class. Solid build, plenty of space, perfect colour.
The main difference from all others is, this is built to last!
It is not cheap, but you only get what you pay for.
John Lewis are a pleasure to deal with, you fel valued as a customer.
