We just re-did our closet and we are using this whole system. It is very good quality, solid wood. It was very easy to put together, everything fit perfectly. I'm extremely happy with it.

This is a substantial piece of furniture and well made. Shame to keep it relegated to the closet. Actually, we use our tower as a stand-alone shelf, like a baker's rack, in our kitchen foyer to store soda cartons and bottled water. We wanted something nice looking and sturdy. The matching shelves (see other review) are sturdy and don't sag under this heavy weight. Since it is floor supported and not wall mounted I did not have any problem with installation, although I can see that wall mounting would take quite a bit of effort. However, putting the tower box together is simple. I stuck small rubber feet on it and it works great as a shelving unit.
One problem did crop up though. Since it is so tall, the sides tended to bow outwards under the weight of our loaded shelves...this would not have been a problem with wall mounting. The pins holding the shelves in place do not stick out very far and the middle shelf fell. I remedied this by putting toothpicks in the holes so that the pins would stick out further. Problem solved. If the sides bow out further long term, I may have to install a strap on the backside to prevent this. Time will tell.
Overall, a beautiful piece, different from the run of the mill if used as a shelving unit, extremely well finished, and real wood! No particleboard. Highly recommend this line of products...worth the extra price for excellent quality.

Nicely finished product but if dimensions are criticial please note what they call the depth is actually 26.25" rather than 25.25" as stated. My sizing was critical and had to send product back.

We used the John Lewis parts in the entire closet. I've never seen a design so well thought out and the parts were terrific quality. They think of everything and even have extra hardware to cover every possible design. The customer support was second to none. The wood is solid and beautiful, The 16 inch tower even included a touch up stick for the scratches that invariable happen. I wish I had another closet to do ours came out so well. I have 3 rods, 4 drawers, a 16 inch tower and a 12 inch tower. Extra shelves on both. I would have liked to see clearer pictures on the installation of some of the hardware but they weren't hard to figure out. When they say "critical dimension" on the placement of the upright pieces they mean.l it. I used a plumb bob on the 16" and it didn't fit perfectly but it worked. On the 12" I used a simple level on the side and that went much smoother. They beat the competition hands down for style, appearance and quality.
