    Fantastic product!
    As above
    Great product, well made. Easy for little ones to tidy up and access their things.
    Great item
    excellent quality and ease of build
    Good sturdy quality, though a bit expensive. Photographs on instructions are not clear, though assembly is not difficult.
    One piece is damaged. I called today and a replacement will be sent but not for a week! I don't think that's good enough for a faulty item.
    GLTC's Reply - Please accept our sincerest apologies for the difficulty you experienced with this order. Although we gave you a conservative estimate of a week for a replacement, we are happy to see that the replacement was delivered to you within 2 days. We hope that despite these difficulties you are happy with your new northcore furniture and that you get many years of use from them.
    With our apologies
    I was a little apprehensive having read the reviews about the poor instructions. So I took it really slowly and whilst I agree the instructions are poor, (shouldn't this have been rectified by now?), I got on fine and the finished product is very good indeed. The skinny unit of 3 pieces in total took me 3 hours to build while my husband watched football!
    Easy to assemble and excellent quality.
    Great concept, finally no damage
    This is just a superb storage system. It looks really smart and I love the way it all fits together. The only small complaint was the instructions weren't very easy to follow - it was fine but not as easy as Ikea - a few more intermediate steps would help. In spite of that, we will be buying more!
    Excellent storage for my son. We have a very narrow space in his bedroom between the wall and chimney breast and this is the only storage I have seen that fits the gap. It looks lovely, is very sturdy and was easy to put together (I always like flat pack furniture where everything actually lines up). We got the dove grey which is a lovely pale grey blue colour but more of a warm rather than cool blue tone. Very nice and goes well with the coastal theme in his room. I would recommend this to anyone. Yes it isn't the cheapest storage unit out there but will last and last and last and as it is modular if you ever move the separate units easily come apart without unscrewing. The box/drawer is the perfect size to fit my son's wooden train set (track, trains, carriages, people, cars, trees etc.) in and it's a fairly large set just for anyone wondering about the size of the box. Really happy with this storage.
