Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Bookcase I purchased this Maharani bookcase in store a couple of months ago and I'm delighted with it. The colour and texture of the wood are beautiful. Delivery was fast and efficient. Looks lovely filled with books and a few ornaments. 27 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Piece I have recently added this to my collection from this range. Experienced no problems as expressed in other reviews. Excellent quality and finish and extremely happy with this piece of furniture. 14 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent bookcase I love this bookcase, I bought it to match the Maharani Desk in my study. It's very sturdy and holds lots of books. It also looks great - what more could you ask for in a bookcase?! 25 February 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Maharani bookcase I have collected many pieces from the Maharani range over the years. I was really looking forward to finally getting the bookcase. What was delievered was such poor quality and craftmanship , i was extremley disappointed. There was so many faults, that i just don't know where to begin! Firstly the woodstain was so dark, that you could not even tell what type of wood the bookcase was made from. It certainly did not match all my other Maharani pieces. One shelf was bowed, another shelf split. Bottom doors were uneven etc etc it had to be returned! i'm not ordering a replacement. 14 June 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by A beautiful bookcase, marred by poor craftsmanship I've just taken delivery of this bookcase and have had to request a replacement as a result of a crack in the side. However, even without this damage the lack of care over the finishing is apparent. The slats on one side are too short and the wood stain is inconsistently applied, especially near joins, both inside and out. I'm happy to pay for a high quality product, but when I do so I expect to get that quality. I do hope that the finish of the replacement is better. John Lewis, please assure the quality of your products before sending them out so that we don't have to once we've paid for them. 23 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A really lovely, quality bookcase This bookcase is lovely to look at, I had a lot of good comments about it. It is solid wood and well made. The latch to keep the 2 doors is quirky and you don't see that usually. I have 7 yr old and these is where she keeps her puzzles boxes amongst many of her things and it stands the everyday opening and closing (it hasn't loosened it's grip). Overall a lovely , quality bookcase 16 May 2012
