Q & As

John Lewis Maxi Store Divan Base, Light Beige, Kingsize 4.1 5 7 7
Great Storage and bed solution This is a really sturdy built bed, John Lewis will come out and set up the bed, I purchased it with an Ortho 1400 mattress, no complaints - really comfortable. The bed opens using hydraulics and has plenty of storage underneath. Would recommend this bed. 26 December 2014
Quality storage bed Well made quality bed. So many ottoman beds have bulky bases. This doesn't, which is why I chose it as it fits nicely in my bedroom. Excellent storage for houses with limited space. Only waited a week for delivery and two guys from JL fitted it together for me. 16 December 2014
space we have down sized & short of space this divan solved our problems plus added comfort. 29 July 2014
Excellent item - great quality Wow, the amount of storage space in our Maxi-Store bed is fantastic. Having seen the previous reviews about assembly, we initially asked JL whether their delivery team would be able to assemble the bed for us. We were informed that this service ended sometime in late 2013. We actually found the seven-page instruction booklet, with pictures, (perhaps this is new, as a result of response to earlier customers' struggles with assembly - ?) to be very good and clear. We did, however, come across a major problem in that the places on the divan base where one is required to pierce the fabric to make the hole for the screws to go through had been marked in the wrong place, meaning about 50cm away from the hole, not just slightly out of line! The JL customer service team were genuinely helpful and they refunded us £100 of the purchase price, along with checking the rest of the batch in the warehouse so that future customers did not have the same problem. It seems that the stickers used to mark on the fabric where the holes have already been drilled underneath had just been stuck on in entirely the wrong place in the factory. If you have a problem with this, do 'feel around' for the pre-drilled holes underneath the fabric, as they will be there! The bed itself is quite high compared to standard divan, but we personally like this. A great product and a great idea from JL. We searched high and low for similar beds, but could not find any that have the full length and width of storage space that the Maxi-Store does. 23 May 2014
Divan bed sits too high. I could of gone to any bed shop to purchase a storage divan, but thought by going to John Lewis I would receive a knowledgeable service advisor. We made it very clear that we wanted a storage divan but would be purchasing our matteress with another company as I have a back problem (the service advisor knew of the company and type of mattress we were purchasing) One thing was never brought to our attention which was to check the overall height that the bed would sit at. This style of storage divan doesn't go with a very thick mattress as they sit too high. I'm now left with having to literally climb up into my bed. It's only the second time I've bought a bed, so I've never even thought about this but it's an important factor when purchasing a divan and mattress. Please could you teach your advisors this important piece of information, as I'm now a very unhappy customer stuck with a purchase that doesn't meet my requirements for the next 10 years! 02 May 2014
Storage double divan I am so grateful to the previous reviewer who drew it to my attention that this bed is hard to put together. I booked the John Lewis guys Louis and Mark to do it for me - there wasn't a box to tick for the service, but I booked it over the phone afterwards. I could never have managed without their help. Also really glad I booked the 3 hour slot for delivery - this magnificent team arrived right at the beginning of the slot, so I didn't have to do any waiting at all. They also sorted out the dogey castor that didn't want to screw in very easily - as the thread it screwed into had been damaged when it was inserted during the manufacture process. Five stars go to the team who delivered and put the bed together. Thank you 19 November 2013
Please have clearer instructions Didn't realise we'd have to do so much ourselves before getting to lie on the bed. The instructions and pictures were unclear and we didn't know what all the various screws etc. were for. When we bought our last bed from JL it was put together completely for us by the deliverers. 17 October 2012
