Q & As


John Lewis The Basics Dexter Low, Wide Bookcase 3.9 5 9 9
Really Good Product A* really nice product, easy to put together did it on my own in under 20 mins, looks amazing you cant go wrong really, Thumbs up to John Lewis for this one A* 26 June 2014
Very good product. Very pleased with the quality and finish of this 'budget' range, exceeded expectations in that respect. I bought the low bookcase, tall bookcase and desk and all were easily assembled. The tall bookcase recommends two to assemble and I would agree with that. I did manage it alone but struggled a little. The low bookcase and desk were easily assembled by one. Would definitely recommend this range for low cost and good quality for price. 23 June 2014
Looks good but components and assembly instructions could be improved Now it is assembled, the shelves are exactly the size and looks I wanted. However, there were two problems with the assembly. As the back is concertina-style, it is not possible to insert it in the manner described in the instructions. Standing it up first is required. Then the small inserts at the rear that hold the back in place have too long a tongue and will not insert fully. I decided that this was probably not going to be a problem, but had some worrying moments when I was inserting the screws before this could be verified. Having assembled a number of other flat pack pieces of furniture recently from IKEA, this is not quite so well designed. However, it absolutely does the job I wanted and looks very good. 25 March 2014
Single-handed assembly impossible Single-handed assembly of this bookcase is impossible (it should take 20 minutes, according to the instruction leaflet). I'm not sure that it's possible with two people. It's going back 15 March 2014
Excellent bookcase Easy to assemble and sturdy in use. The shelves are adjustable in height which is useful. 11 March 2014
Excellent basic bookcase! Exactly as described, basic but sturdy bookcase. Very easy to assemble with one person. Good value. We had to arrange a replacement due to some damage to the first one delivered but this was arranged immediately and the replacement arrived within 5 days - perfect. 14 January 2014
Slightly disappointed Not the colour I was expecting, was much lighter which was a real disappointment, so won't be ordering anything else from this range. Was desperate for a bookcase so put it up anyway was fairly easy to ensemble. 18 December 2013
Well made and easily assembled bookcase. Well made and easily assembled bookcase. I modified its base and fitted it on castors... now even more useful...! 10 December 2013
