Q & As

John Lewis Maharani Storage Chest 4.1 5 11 11
Not Good Delivered today and very kindly unwrapped by the delivery team - once unwrapped I noticed some minor damage on one of the corners where it looks like the varnish was not "finished". Pointed this out and very quickly the delivery team rang the office and advised of this - I was informed that John would call me to arrange a replacement as I purchased it online. Once the delivery team had left I opened the lid to look inside and the screws holding the bracket in place just fell out. Very disappointed indeed and I hope that the replacement is much better or I shall be requesting a refund. 10 July 2014
Very happy with this chest Great piece of furniture, plenty of storage room, it also gets used as a side table next to one of our Java sofas. The lid is hinged and has a notch in the hinge to keep the lid in the open position when in use. Simply lift the lid up a little to disengage and lower the lid again. Very useful in de-cluttering the living room as you can tidy away bulky or small items with ease. Keep it looking good with a good quality beeswax like Briwax. 04 September 2013
Disappointed Item arrived in good time - bought this as gift. Looked well packaged (for example sharp, pointy edges of box lid were protected by neat fitting polystyrene). It was only when item was fully unpacked (not what I suggest most of us would do until after delivery man gone) did I notice that the lid was damaged - the damage having been hidden by the very polystyrene inserts meant to protect it. On closer inspection the damage seemed to have resulted from a rather unskilled attempt to repair a section of the wood that was clearly split - a small nail, not evident on the other matching side of the lid, had been used and had only exaggerated the damage. My point is this - the ill-advised and completely shoddy attempt at repair had been carried out at the point of manufacture. This is poor and I have suggested to John Lewis that they might discuss quality control with their supplier. Much as I like the aesthetics of this piece of furniture I will not be asking for a replacement but a refund instead for fear of receiving another item with 'well hidden damage'. 04 November 2012
Lovely piece of furniture ..... Eventually This is a gorgeous piece of furniture! It took 4 different chests before we actually got one that was perfect and not damaged in any way but it was worth the wait. John Lewis as ever provided fantastic customer service! Only reason not 5 star was because of the 3 previous damaged items, it took a month from original order to receive it. 21 October 2012
Impressive to look at but also very handy The delivery showed up relatively quickly from the time that I ordered it and it was just what we were looking for. A smart storage chest with good capacity. 08 October 2012
Beautiful Storage Chest I ordered this Maharani Chest for my son's Birthday. I live in Hampshire, he lives in Wales, so the delivery service was very beneficial. He is delighted with it and declared it "beautiful". Many thanks John Lewis 30 August 2012
Practical and attractive product I was very happy when this product arrived, it was taken directly upstairs, and it actually had a lot more storage space than I expected it to have. Also the lid mechanic is very practical, and I was able to store a huge amount of items with no danger of injury. Very satisfied customer 28 August 2012
Very Practical Good quality, fits in well with previous purchases of the same Maharani range. Good value 20 June 2012
