What Makes The Oakland Large Bookcase 5 Shelves Great?

We were a bit disappointed with this purchase for a few reasons. We bought this item to go alongside the open display cabinet which looks almost identical but with cupboards at the bottom. Due to us not fully checking all the details we had not realised it was actually quite a bit shorter and different width to the display cabinet, nor that it was flat pack self assembly unlike all the other things we bought at the same time.The assembly was not as straightforward as we would have expected. The fittings were not particularly good quality and the alignments particularly for the top part were not exactly right.In fairness once it was assembled it did look OK. It just did not match the other unit we had purchased and the failure to realise this at the time of ordering was our oversight. Nevertheless I would recommend Cotswold make it more clear in the description that these are not matching items.Because the delivery men had removed all the flat pack packaging I had thought we might have difficulty requesting a return. However Cotswold were very understanding and without hesitation agreed a return alongside us ordering a second open display cabinet to replace it. Sometimes the measure of a supplier is how well they deal with issues after the original sale. In this respect Cotswold deserve 5 stars. I do advise future prospective buyers to double check the specifications of all online purchases carefully before committing to the order.

Customer Reviews For The Oakland Large Bookcase 5 Shelves

In the end, the service was good and we are pleased with the product. However when the bookcase was delivered, we found that two out of the three screw holes in the bottom shelf were not aligned correctly. After a second phone call, we managed to get a response and arranged a replacement delivery and collection of the original bookshelf. When this arrived, we found exactly the same manufacturing fault even though we had emailed photographs to show the problem. On contacting the company they offered a full refund but we negotiated some compensation made the necessary repairs ourselves. The payment to us went through promptly and we would consider purchasing from you again.

I'm very happy with the Oakland computer desk. It was fairly easy to assemble and has enabled me to tidy up the mess of cables that usually accompany computers and printers. (They're in the small cupboard.) It might be useful to add a comment in the assembly instructions that it's necessary to make sure that the pedestals are aligned so that the keyboard shelf will fit into the runners. I had tightened the bolts holding the top to the pedestals when I realised that the keyboard shelf did not fit between them. I had to loosen the bolts, realign the pedestals and then tighten the bolts again. It wasn't a big issue but a heads up in the instructions would help.

I recently purchased the Oakland bookcase and it's the perfect addition to our living room. As I've also recently purchased a corner tv unit from the Portobello range, I contacted Cotswold Company to enquire as to which bookcase would be the closest colour match to the tv unit. They replied very promptly and offered to send wood samples if required but also advised they believed the Oakland was the closest colour match. I ordered the bookcase without requesting samples; the colour was perfect. Really pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality of the item.

We visited the Cotswold co shop in Stow to chose a ready assembled oak bookcase. Unfortunately we were mislead into buying the Oakland which is self assembly. However the couriers and Cotswold co were very helpful in returning the Oakland and sorting out a ready assembled bookcase. We are delighted with the LYON OAK BOOKCASE and now have 2 sitting in our hallway. We found Cotswold Co helpful and courteous in our dealings with them. Many Thanks. Chris Taylor

I had the same minor issues as a couple of other reviewers - the dowel holes and tapped inserts for bolts were in completely the wrong place at the rear of the base (I just secured it with 4 woodscrews instead) and at the front of the base the boltholes are only just smaller than the supplied washers (add some slightly larger washers to increase the soundness of the fitting). But now it is together it is solid as a rock and looks great, and I am very happy with it.

Disappointed that was told on my order that it was ready made and it came flat packed. Assembly was easy enough, but a pain to do considering we thought it would slot just straight in to the lounge. Happy with colour and design, although back panel obviously cheaper material than rest of it. We already have a montague bookshelf which we love and in comparison, this is obviously cheaper by both price and by quality.

Fabulous quality bookcase. Took no time at all to put together and my son-in-law used the back strap to secure it to the wall. I love all the little details like the diamond shaped dovetail details on each corner and the bevelled top. Absolutely beautiful and so pleased to find one that could be assembled in the room as nothing else this size would have gone up the stairs in my little cottage.

Ive had other items in this range and have always been happy, but theyve all been made up prior to arrival. I knew this item was flat packed but what I wasnt expecting was for the delivery man to unpack it in the lorry and then just leave it stacked In a pile on my floor and sofa! There were no assembly instructions left either which came to fun and games when putting it up!

5

This is a tall and solid item but took a bit of putting together as it came in a flat pack. The main problem was that on one side the piano hinge front fouled the base unit and so would not fit snugly until I shaved a bit off the internal corner. of the base shelf.

3

Looks good, the shelves are adjustable, easy to assemble even though no instructions are included.However beware if there are missing parts, customer services appear not to have product parts lists and so after two attempts have failed to send the correct part.

4

TV UNIT...... drawers don't hold enough DVDs, videos (yes ,some people still use them). The open area is not big enough to accept more then one electric item i.e. SKY Box + DVD/Video player. The height of the opening should be larger. Looks good though.

5

This item arrived in a flat-pack, but was extremely easy to assemble. The shelving is flexible, and can be adjusted to suite the variety of books I have. I bought two of these and, either side of my new sideboard, they make a good trio in my new home.

4

Needs to be assembled. The sides are hinged which makes assembly quite easy. I had to ignore the instructions as I did not have the space to move it around, but it was easy to do.It does not go together as well as a pre-assembled shelf unit.

4

High quality, good-looking bookcase. Although flat-packed it was easy to assemble.I wish companies would not using polystyrene for packaging: it creates a snowstorm on opening, cannot be recycled and is damaging to the environment.

5

Easy assembly system (part assembled) but had to finish drilling out two slots for bolts which had been missed (not a problem -just a niggle).Looks great, especially with the Lyon Petite side tables, and adjustable shelves a boon.

5

I am delighted with this bookcase. It is sturdy and looks good in our dining room. This is the sixth time I have placed an order with this company and have always been impressed by their communication skills and delivery service.

4

Sturdy and good looking furniture. Only quibble is some of the hole drilling not too good, with the wood chipping slightly in several places. Hence 4 stars instead of 5 on build quality. Ordering was easy and delivery was perfect.

4

Good solid set of shelves. I hadn't realised quite how flat packed they would be. Took about an hour and a half to put together but all went smoothly and all parts were there. Very nice and practical now.

5

Lovely bookcase good quality pine and I like the detail on the bookcase. Easy to put together (it took my daughter about 30 mins) and all holes in the right places. Very happy with this purchase.

5

smaller than we thought,yes you get dimensions with the product description,but seemed small.two shelves were damaged,on reporting this we were told we could have a small refund,never got it..

5

we were stunned when the bookshelves arrived - we had to assemble them ourselves! 3hrs later assembled - after adjusting the rear panelling to cover a gap which probably shifted in carriage.

5

Love the Oakland tall bookcases finished off my lounge perfectly , sits very well with all my other oak & furnishing .Would highly recommend the product & Cotswold absolutely amazing service

5

Marvellous bookcase, as always good quality from Cotswold Co. Delivery spot on with keeping us updated as to the exact time of delivery. Will definitely use this company again and again.

4

This bookcase required putting together which my husband did quite easily. Requires fixing to the wall to stop it falling over. Looks very smart and holds plenty of books and ornaments.

5

Filing cabinet very smart in appearance and matches the desk we also bought for the computer. Bit larger than it looked in photo but great to store all the files and files boxes

3

The bookcase was lovely, but we are missing two shelf support /bracket. Have emailed but no response. Shame as a lovely bookcase, but we cant use all the shelves at the moment.

4

I was surprised when this came flat packed, but it was easy to put up and clearly excellent quality. Looks great in my living room and want to buy the sideboard next...

5

Filing Cabinet, Very pleased, thank you for the exact measurements ( minus overhang ) in advance as it is a very tight fit, Thanks again

5

Very good solid shelving unit, didn't take long to put together, very happy the only problem I have is the back panel is very thin and flimsy, hope it lasts x

3

The bookcase was easy enough to assemble. It's of decent build quality, although to be honest, for the cost I'd expect it to be heavier and even more solid.

5

Having moved house I was glad, at last, to be able to empty boxes of books. Had thought I'd have used a shelf for display but the books required otherwise.

5

Excellent product good quality and delivered when promised.Have bought several furniture items from this company - all of which have been excellent quality
