Q & As

John Lewis The Basics Dexter Tall, Wide Bookcase 3.7 5 21 21
Just the job This neat bookcase fits nicely in my study and is a very useful storage unit. I have been able to adjust 2 of the shelves to take foolscap folders and files, which is part of the storage I needed. Ordering and delivery was nice and straightforward too. Would definitely consider using this service again. 09 September 2014
Excellent product I ordered this for my daughters bedroom after her love of books filled the previous basics Kirby design. They work well together and it is of a good quality - excellent value. Really pleased. 03 September 2014
Not great Coulour is not what is advertised. Back panel is IMPOSSIBLE to fit. 03 August 2014
Excellent product! Very pleased with purchase! Good quality product, excellent service.100% satisfaction. 08 July 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
