Leonhard Pfeifer for John Lewis Abbeywood 2 Door, 3 Drawer Chest
Have had this delivered today down to Cornwall. Delightful delivery team. They put the legs on for me and placed it exactly where I wanted it and took the packaging away. I had to fix the handles which is not difficult but my tip would be to hold the screw in place with the screwdriver and turn the handle until it won't go anymore. The screws are quite long and not of too good quality so I was worried that the head may split.
It looked so good we decided to re position it. It is very heavy with no obvious hand holds so not easy. The drawers are supposed to be soft close but ours definitely aren't in fact they nearly took my fingers off so beware. That aside it is a very stylish and contemporary piece.

A great piece. Good experience with the service
The item is exactly how it looks on the picture. Lovely colour and finishing touch.
The delivery team was very helpful and friendly despite their difficulty in finding our address at the beginning.
(Very tempted to buy the other piece of the same design, if we have more space)

Just what I wanted.
Spent hours trawling the internet for 'something different' but also practical, well made, stylish. I love this! Yards ahead of the rest of the field. It is my 'office' hiding a multitude of papers and computer and stationery items but looks so neat in my small flat. Would take issue with the 'high gloss' description in another review, unless I misunderstand. It is not really really shiny but a pleasant matt finish. I visited the store in Glasgow to check it out and had helpful discussion with staff. Then ordered online and was quickly delivered by friendly professional delivery men

Beautiful and useful cupoboard
I had seen this beautiful cupboard in Sept 2012 in the John Lewis catalogue and thought it most unusual and I particularly liked the colours. I was not able to visit a John Lewis store to see the cupboard but have been delighted with it- well made .

Stylish, fun Unit
This unit is an extremely practical and quality piece of furniture- it provides ample storage compartments and drawers, all soft-closing. It doesn't disappoint in the looks department either- the soft, muted colour laminate panels add a splash of retro glamour to any neutral scheme. A clever, multi functional unit that is perfect in our lounge. Also- despite a few unforseen complications with our order, a big thank you to John Lewis for their attentive, first class customer service and ensuring that we received our goods at our convenience.

Warped in first week
We have had this side board 1 week, put a small vase on it, when i moved the vase to clean the area beneath had faded a swollen up, totally ruined. A lovely piece of furniture and i am sure John Lewis will replace or refund. This is most unusual for John Lewis everything we have bought from them has always been vey good quality. Dont put vases on this sideboard!

Just the job
This chest or sideboard is just what we needed to bring a contemporary touch to our entrance hall - out went the old dark wooden table and this colourful chest suddenly brought colour to the area. It is well made - the drawers have a soft close feature and of course it does have the bonus of providing a good deal of storage space of different dimensions. It is in it's third week but we are very pleased with our purchase so far.
