Dorothy, Yorkshire Mother of two.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
the product was exactly what we were looking for, but, was very tricky to put together, I would suggest a third person to help in the making up process.
Bad points:
doesn't look like real oak, a few of the joins have small gaps, and difficult to put together as difficult to hold.

Bex, Guildford

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very stylish, quite large so holds a lot of stuff and looks good from far away. Can also be used as a room divider (thats what we done) as both sides are the same (unlike the 1 column shelf, which can only be used 1 way).
Bad points:
Close up you can see bits where the wood/plastic has split (where the pegs have gone in). Very hard to put together, def need 2 people. Had read reviews before purchasing so was aware of this, but still wanted this shelf anyway. Also purchased the smaller 1 column shelf, which was much easier to put together! The instructions for this item are really not very good - you really have to follow them carefully in order for the whole thing to go together - which doesn't actually happen until the last piece goes on! So you really have to persevere with it. Also need to be careful when hitting the sides on - needs a lot of force, however it is easy to break (we have a hole on ours, but luckily it is underneath so cannot be seen!)

The feet that come with it look quite shoddy, so we did not use these - looks much better without.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value for money and looked very stylish. Didn't take long to build once you had overcome the poor instructions (see below).
Bad points:
Difficult to build, as the instructions were not clear. It would have been better if it had clearly broken down where the dowels should go. We also had to purchase wood glue as the dowels were not quite long enough to make the item stable.

good size, attractive to look at,
Bad points:
difficult to put together, would have been easier if all sections were fixed as dividers kept collapsing.

Confirmed purchaser Very Unhappy Customer London

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
There are no good points
Bad points:
Ok so there were three of us who decided to put this together. It took us three hours!!!!! The instructions were really bad and we had to construct it a different way just to put it together, the dowles were too big for hte holes and they kept on splitting to wood. It was so heavy even with three peoples weight on it we couldn't get the pieces to fit to gether properly.
The furniture is now up but i cant take it down again if I move so ands its too heavy to move in once piece so i will have to leave it there
It looks OK and more expensive than it was but over all i gove it a 1 out of 10.
I wanted to put my comments on the web site and ward other people not to bye it but i saw that it has now been discontinued I wonder why????

Sunita, wolverhampton

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Great style, works as an excellent storage solution, I have wicker baskets in my shelving unit hiding all the clutter!
Bad points:
The overal design concept isint the friendly, unfortunately you need min x2 ppl to put this together. The actual screws are not very genorous in length so you need to be very careful. Once you have it all together, i dont imagine you would be ablt to dismantle it without damage.
