Great Addition to our Den
Florence from Decatur, GA– Verified Buyer
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.
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.
Wasn't as simple to assemble as it seems
DIANA from Debary, FL– Verified Buyer
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.

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.

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.
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.
Great bookshelf for the price
J from NC– Verified Buyer
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.
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.
Great for storage
Jessica from canton, OH– Verified Buyer
I bought this to put in my office for storage rather than use for books and I love it. I also bought some wicker baskets to put on the shelves and the top shelf that is the smallest is great for some small plants! Took me about an hour or so to put together. The finish is shiny and smooth and had no knicks or scratches
Maureen from Kalamazoo, MI– Verified Buyer
Putting it together is a little tricky. I hadn't worked with dowels before. Once I looked closely at pictures etc I figured it out. It works great in an entry way hallway. Fits a lot of books. I'm very happy with it
