Gainsborough Double Wardrobe
Looks lovely, but......
Bought this wardrobe along with some other items from the range. It looks very nice. However within a day of my daughter hanging her clothes on the rail it bowed. That is the reason for my low scores. A visit from a technician only confirmed what I could already see. With a span this wide it appears a wooden rail is not strong enough unless you want to half fill the wardrobe (it was suggested!). M&S cannot supply a metal rail as replacement but will change the whole wardrobe if I wish. I am nervous that another one will have the same problem. So despite having spent nearly 1k on a wardrobe I am left to repair it myself, not good enough.

We had a full range of the Gainsbourgh bedroom range delivered, everything about the furniture oozes style,
My Daughter also had some next Bedroom furniture delivered, slightly cheaper in price but no where near the same quality, you also had the pleasure of assembling it yourself !
The service from the chaps who delivered the furniture again was quality with paper slippers and sheets used to ensure no damage or marks appeared on our carpets

Night mare to assemble

This product is of an excellent quality & it looks as though it is built to last. However, in hind-sight I would not have bought it!
Why, well we read the information on the internet about 'Will it fit' & we thought we would be OK for it to be assemled in the bedroom,with the bed in place. What we didn't know was that we needed to clear the bedroom of all furniture, so that the delivery men could assemble the wardrobe for us. Unfortunately we didn't do this so we agreed to assemble the wardrobe our selves.
So over the course of a weekend we assembled the wardrobe our selves, which was very interesting. The assembly it self went well, requiring the top unit to be assembled from a flat pack & then placed onto a pre-assembled base unit. It was extremely heavy & require a lot of coordinating to get it right. We did manage it, but I can honestly say it is an experience I do not wish to repeat
