Q & As

John Lewis Maxi Store Divan Base, Light Beige, Double 4.4 5 8 8
Good quality product - would recommend Good quality, instructions clear, easy to assemble 02 September 2014
A Great Product to purchase! These days everyone is short of space. This is one reason why I purchased the John Lewis Maxi Divan Base. It is a great way to store away things and no one knows it is there. I am really pleased with this product and it is comfortable too! 11 July 2014
Poor instructions/Difficult assembly/Quality not what it should be Not that happy with this for the price. Instructions unclear in some places. One of the castor wheels would not screw in properly and we'll probably have to go back to customer support for a replacement. Guide holes for linking two units could have been pre-drilled to make it easier to screw in the link screws, which are a little on the short side too. No, not good enough for an item of this price. 22 March 2014
Mega Storage This Divan does require some self assembly, but it's pretty straight forward. Loads of storage space and easy access thanks to the hydraulics. There are two small boards that you attach to the head side, to stop the mattress moving when accessing storage unit. Would have preferred something a little stronger than two pieces of material for lifting base, but overall a very good product. 20 February 2014
Double maxi store Maximum storage space. Some physical strength is required to control opening and closing. My partner is slight and struggles a little. This base in conjunction with a thick mattress gives a much higher bed height than is normal. Short people sitting on the side the bed will find their feet shy of the ground. Because of its height finding a valence that fits can be difficult and limits the range of coordinated bedding available. If I were to make one design change it would be to add a third set of coasters to the base at the mid point. I also expect I will build and fit a set of dividers to segment the space. Overall happy with utility but i do consider this a little expensive. 20 September 2013
Amazing bed, just buy it. This is truly one amazing base unit. It allows you to fully utilise the storage under your bed unlike normal 4 draw divan's where you may find 2 draws not accessible due to being next to a wall. The gas hydraulics are powerful enough to lift over 80KG of mattress weight and the base is strong enough to support the weight of heavy memory foam mattresses. I would say though if you do not have a heavy mattress on your bed you may struggle to close the divan, I find it a little difficult and have a 60KG mattress on it. John Lewis did an amazing job of delivering and unpacking the bed and taking the packaging away, it was no mean feat as each half of the bed weighs 40KG each. They did struggle putting the bed together as they never had done it before and in the end I told them to leave it as it was late and I managed to do it myself after reading the instructions. After a few weeks of sleeping on the new divan I am very pleased with my purchase and you can see why the high price when you look at the quality of the bed. The bed is a lot higher of the ground than my old bed, but I like it like that and as it is very stable and flat I have had a very good nights sleep on it and my back is feeling much better. I'm just waiting for my custom headboard to arrive now direct from the John Lewis supplier. 24 July 2013
Excellent Product I honestly can't fault this bed base. Sturdy and well made. No problem accessing ottoman storage. 03 March 2013
Better than I expected The Divan is all I could have hoped for, easy to open and good storage space. I was concerned about opening it when the mattress and duvet were on but it's very easy to manage. Check what height you will have once mattress is placed on top, if you don't like a high bed this may not be for you, but I am very happy with it.. 17 July 2012
