Exactly as expected

This shelf looks great, and wasn't too tough to put together (took a bit of balancing while attaching shelves etc.) The only reason I'm docking it one star is because I'd only consider putting something heavy on the bottom shelf (which has the additional leg for support). The top four shelves are only supported by a main screw and two small wooden dowels on each side, so I could imagine them breaking without too much trouble, leaving the shelf spinning on the screw. That's probably just an intrinsic problem with this type of shelf, and maybe it's deceptively strong and this is a non-issue, but it's just enough to keep this from being perfect.
Great Addition to our Den

Love these! I bought two to go on either side of our wall-mounted television and we use it to hold our DVDs. Consequently, we haven't really put anything heavy on them, but I do feel like they would hold up. We didn't attach them to the wall because we're going to be painting eventually, and so the tops of the legs kind of rub up on the wall and leave slight black marks if they're bumped into (but that's on us since we didn't secure it). Very satisfied with the shipping speed and the quality of the product. They are fairly easy to put together as well. I would buy these again.

This bookshelf looks great in my living room and adds a nice design piece to an empty space i had. The color is definitely a mahogany shade. I have other espresso furniture in the room and this is alot lighter than those pieces. The reason for 4 stars is because it was very difficult to put together and I still feel as though some shelves are not as sturdy as I hoped. I kept mostly nick-nacks and decorative items on the smaller shelves and put books only on the bottom since I wasn't too sure the smaller shelves could handle the weight. Overall pleased with my purchase.
Wasn't as simple to assemble as it seems

The manufacture changed course with the assembly pieces. Went to wooden dowel pins that were suppose to be glued rather than screws. Glue was old and we couldnt use. It fits the space we needed perfect but it takes two people to hold on to one of the pieces while the other tightens the screws. Also need to fit all the dowel pins on the second side before screwing in the sides.

I would have given 5 stars because it really looks nice and is very sturdy...... once you get it together! Directions are not easy to follow and it took 2 of us about 1 hour to get it together. We used our own glue since the glue included dried up inside the tube. We waited about 1/2 for the glue to dry before putting it in place. I'm very happy with the purchase and I would recommend it to anyone reading this!! Good Luck and Enjoy.

This bookcase was exactly what I needed in my space. The 'Natural' color matches a teak TV stand that I have almost perfectly. All shelves are very sturdy and it's supporting books, magazines, vases on the varying levels. It was easy to put together and went pretty quickly with a power screwdriver. It works great in my studio apartment and provides a lot of storage.
Great bookshelf for the price

This was a little tricky to put together, but it seems very sturdy once completed. The color is very nice and is consistent with the matching end tables I purchased. I wish the shelves were just a little wider, but the height and depth is perfect.
Good looking shelf
Alexis from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
Looks good in my nyc apt, but may not be heavy-duty enough for my needs. I have a ton of books that I was planning to put on the shelf, but one of the 'steps' started becoming a little unstable. All said and done though, if you're using it more for superficial purposes/to hold light items, it's beautiful.
Christopher from Hudson, NH– Verified Buyer
This is exactly what we had envisioned. It's a great addition to the room and the varying shelf sizes and sloping design really call attention to the items displayed, while not taking away from the piece's own beauty. It was also quick and easy to assemble.
More sturdy than other reviews indicate
Ashley from NC– Verified Buyer
And assembly wasn't as bad as many stated either. I have some heavier books on the bottom shelf which may help sturdy it a bit, and pictures and trinkets on the higher shelves. Plenty sturdy. The color is more chocolate than espresso but is still a dark brown.
