Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Spent ages looking for a bookcase, finally decided to purchase this and the single one as well. Really pleased with both purchases, great finish and look really well built. Would recommend. 04 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection all round Really impressed with this item. It is a ready-built unit which is well constructed and is a perfect colour with beautiful wood grain markings. Bought together with matching Media unit which fit together perfectly. Perfection all round. 30 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with purchase These shelves are just perfect in my newly decorated office.They are just the right size to take files and boxes and look good at the same time. Most importantly they are really solid and an attractive piece of furniture. Worth the money! 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy My wife and I bought this bookcase to match the chest and nest of tables from the stowaway range. The bookcase is well made, and is a great addition to our living room furniture. The tapering on the top and bottom shelves is a nice touch. The unfinished look also gives the furniture a modern feel. Very pleased. 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely piece of furniture This bookcase is a very solid, quality piece of furniture that I would buy again. 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommend! I considered this purchase for over a week, really needed two freestanding bookcases but was worried I'd suffer buyer's remorse spending such a sum. Took the plunge and I'm happy I did. The bookcases are sturdy and look great, no self assemble, strong enough for the heaviest of books, no wall attachment. Delivery guys gave me a call half an hour before delivery, they placed the bookcase and took away the packaging .... couldn't have asked for more. I'd highly recommend this bookcase, you won't regret it. 13 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by jolly nice bookcase I ordered the 'finished' product to match up with my JL Maharani table and dining chairs. colour wise its a good match, but the finish to the bookshelf is different and is not entirely smooth to the touch, my view is it could do with fine sand before the colour applied. having said that, the duster doesn't actually stick to it. it is rather deeper than i expected so i advise if its not being placed into an alcove you do mentally visualise its sizing and positioning. it does look wonderful and i do love it to bits. delivery was very good, i was called 30 mins before arrival and they unpacked and took the packaging away with them, and also placed in position - it is heavy!! JL i would dearly like to see this range extended, perhaps with a matching sideboard/cupboard to place alongside it?? 29 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Sturdy Product I was concerned that despite the price this would be another screw together bookcase. How wrong I was. This can prebuilt and is an extremely heavy unit, solid throughout and a great build quality. Will certainly be looking to purchase another for other rooms 17 December 2012
