Looks like a good deal for a large piece of oak furniture. Nowhere for it to go in my flat sadly. Heat + rep

It states Solid Oak and Oak Veneers not just Oak Veneers or the unit would collapse! If you have a look at other furtniture items in their sale I think you'll find that they are similar composition but with a 'much' greater price tag. But if you don't like it I think others will! :thumbsup:

out of stock now

I guess so seeing as its sold out , just not to my taste , just personally felt it was never £699 but if it was ill admit i was wrong.

Just didnt like the style , sort of thing you see in a cheap catalog

It'll be well worth the money

We have some pieces in the Sonoma range, these are also solid oak and oak veneer. They are solid and very heavy pieces and I've just been to look and I don't know where the veneer is. Just look like solid wood to me, maybe the veneer's in hidden places

out of stock for me to

They're furniture is 'solid' and certainly not your cheap catalog kit but just might not be to everyone's taste. Looks like it's sold out now though so I hope those that have managed to snap one up are happy with their new purchase.

I have a hideaway computer unit which I picked up for a good price and it is very solid. Took a job getting it up the stairs. I think the veneers are on the front doors and sides as they are thinner than the other areas. Its very hard to notice them though, very good quality item.

Did you buy one? granted very good price if it was £699 , its hard to tell quailty from a picture i guess , i see some nice bits of furniture on M&S but the ones i like are no where near £99 lets hope they get reduced lol

That's what I thought to but for £99 I just thought go for it... I managed to get one last night using M&S vouchers but lappie ran out of juice before I could post it on here last night! I don't think the photo does it justice but I bought another item from them last year and I didn't think too much of that until it arrived and I love it.

It's going to be a long wait before it arrives though. :shock:

No didn't get one as we haven't the space for it, I did get all excited when I saw the listing though as I'm after a low chest to go in a bay window

We've just bought the Dark Sonoma mirror at the bargain price of £50 (after additional discounts), we'd always said that we'd get a light one to match the rest of our pieces but with the dark one being so cheap we compromised!! Just hope we've got the strengh to hang it on the wall!

Ah ya better of with dark more stylish i find, lighter one always reminds me off pine and god i hate pine , its so 90s.

Ive spent hours looking through home style mags and to get my home the best it can be , now i have people coming asking my advice when they see what ive done lol

If you refer to the style like this : marksandspencer.com/gp/…ore

Then thats quite nice , better then the one listed here anyway , as it looks really solid and more real wood then this one listed , like the dark one myself marksandspencer.com/gp/…ore

Wonder if they will go for £99

The oak computer hideaway we have is probably the same colour as this unit and it is quite dark and looks nothing like pine (can't stand pine either). I personally don't like the handles on the drawers and will be looking to change them as soon as the units been received.

As for the other unit looking like more real wood, I expect they are made in the same factory from the same cuts of supplied wood so quality wise will not differ. Unless multiple photo's are taken, I really think such large items like these aren't done any justice without detailed photo's being taken.

Hi A-N-D-Y

What I'm after is a merchants chest, I think it's called that!

Something that will double up as DVD storage and as a seat also but space in the bay is limited (don't know where the children's toys are going to go!!)

Bacl in Stock Guys!!! I just ordered one. And just to point out Light Oak looks nothing like Pine! I have Light Oak Flooring and it has a lovely Honey colour to it.

If it was made to order though why would they slash the price from £699 to £99 :?

I presume its stock they cant shift hence the reduction , unless of course the £99 is the real true price?

Also dont forget quidco its 5%

I don't think you'd find this kind of quality retailing for an RRP of £99 or M&S would go bust...:whistling:

On a serious note, this will be a solid piece of furniture and I take it this is being shipped in hence the 8 week delivery time! I'm a bit surprised at the length of time and may enquire about that to make sure its correct. Will let you know what I find...

Why do you know the quailty of this item from the picture or perhaps you go yours quicker?

Myself i dont usually buy item which claim to have veneer , i tend to pay the above prices for items which dont have veneer at all ,so quailty is something im not to sure on and as of yet to see.

Well what the shops RRP and what they actually buy it for are 2 different matters , huge mark up means huge profit , £99 is a more realistic price

back instock again as of 9.34am not sure what M&S are playing at , seem to have 3 stock in now every morning... they really must have a lot of this and find 3 of them instock each day it seems LOL

They also seeem to have the Arlanda Glazed Unit back instock also

I already have furniture from Marks & Spencer which is made from Oak and Oak Veneer. It is 'very' good quality item and extremely solid. I have yet to receive this item and will have to wait until the middle of March before its delivered :-( but based on my previous purchases from Marks & Spencer, I know that this is something that will last a long time and I won't have to touch a screw to assemble it!

As for the price, it is not just an RRP, 'this is' the original price that the furniture was being sold for online. If you can find anything else of the same quality for less then brilliant, but I'll think you'll spend a lot of time doing so, even used on flea-bay!!

I don't know why your knocking this so much as £99 isn't a huge price for this type of furniture, don't forget it includes delivery and if like me you managed to use a voucher and Quidco, the cost will be nearer 90 sheets for this! How much would you be able to get delivery on an item this size?

By the way, nobody told you to buy this furniture, but if you do like it and its available though... :thumbsup:

Thanks for the update by the way, this item is still in stock (8 week wait still though!).

Forgot the quidco :roll:

Was just pleased it was back in stock at £99

I can't comment on quality until I receive it, but I think you would be hard pressed to find an 8-drawer oak and oak veneer drawer unit for under £100, let alone from M&S

Its a dead one now...

Joke and waste off time this was , i made the space for this unit waited months and then i get an email to say they cant source it from the supplier no longer , so why has it taken them this long to tell me ......bloody poor service on M&S part

Same old trick , make out there is a huge discount on items they dont even have , grrr
