Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Difficult to install I bought the 90 cm shelf. It is challenging to install due to a failure in design. The shelf rests on two 'T' pieces. The cross of the 'T' is screwed to the wall, the rest of the T piece matches to holes in the back of the shelf. Problem is the 'T' pieces are not connected. This is what makes installation challenging - if the 'T' pieces were joined with a level piece of metal installation would be a doddle as the linked 'T' pieces would act as their own mounting template. In the end I chickened out and returned the shelf. 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Newbury floating shelf I purchased 2, the largest and the smallest and yes they are heavy, but providing your are either screwing into a stud or a solid wall they look great, and are fit for purpose. I suggest 3 inch size10 screws as a minimum and make sure the fixing can cope, or pay someone qualified. 10 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not buy this product John Lewis products are generally very good quality which is why, having viewed this item in store we decided to go ahead and purchase these for our nursery. The shelf itself is very good quality but the design/brackets which are supplied are not sufficient to hold the shelf. Once fitted to the wall the shelf is not safe and nor would you want to place anything on them as they slope towards to the floor. Extremely disappointed especially in view of the price, the worst product we have ever bought. No fixings included and instructions are useless. 22 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Buy This Product! Looks good, price feels good. But when it comes to practicality, these shelves are a major disappointment. Once on the wall, no matter how good the DIY work to get them there, they sag to a noticeable degree (due to poor design and build issues). The confidence levels in terms of placing anything on the shelves are reduced to a minimum as a result, not to mention the unacceptable aesthetics of a having a sagging shelf in the room. Disappointed - would have expected better quality products from JL. 18 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by newbury floating shelf 1200cm; Stylish but get them properly fitted Lovely looking white shelves with oak veneer trims. After reading some of the reviews we decided to get a carpenter in to fix these shelves rather than to do it wrong ourselves. We put them onto plasterboard dot and dab and used long screws which went through plasterboard and into brick. There are 3 fixings with this size and each used 2 screws.Took 2 men just over a hour to put up 3 shelves one above the other. Screws must not be too thick as can split the chipboard which is covered with melamine and trimmed with a thin oak veneer. We also put an extra screw in one side of each shelf to attach to a built in cupboard for added support. They did wobble a little before doing this. not put anything heavy on yet and only put up a few days ago, so time will tell. They seem fine though and do look good. they did not get damaged or chipped in delivery or handling. We are happy and felt we had a good buy as we got at overstocked product discount and for this price are very satisfied with the product. 06 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shelf sags on the bracket. Bought three of these and drilled into solid brick with 7cm masonary screws and long rawls. Screws solid, but brackets dont sit flat and shelf rolls forward under any load. Really disappointed with these. Bracket systems seems ill equiped to deal with weight of shelf. V poor. Tempted to take back to JL. Oh and as others say they chip really easily mine came with 3 small chips. 09 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy the 120cm shelf Item looks nice though it chips easily (came with chips). Attached the shelf to the wall with the 3 supplied brackets. Been in the hallway for a few months now and the shelf is sagging badly. Not much has been put on it, but the shelf itself is heavy. It is sagging under its own weight. Will either return or purchase brackets to attach it to the wall. Don't buy the 120cm shelf for this reason. 29 November 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Look nice, not the best quality These look really nice, but they are not straightforward to put up and do not sit tight on the fixings ro snug to the wall, with the result that they slope down towards the front of the shelves. The specification says that each shelf takes 8kg of weight each and I would be reluctant to try putting anywhere near that amount of weight on them as they wobble on the fixings and don't seem sturdy enough. They also damage very easily as the veneer is thin. If you want to put anything heavy on them, I wouldn't recommend, but they're good for lightweight/decorative objects. 25 July 2014
