Great product that matches description and confirms previous reviews

I put this together myself - no mean feat. I am a 58 y/o very fit woman but it got on my nerves - you definitely will do better with a drill than manually screwing everything in, which I did and have the blisters to prove it. It took 2.5 hours. I found it sturdy, unlike some, and didn't feel it needed to be mounted to the wall but I don't have small children or pets. I ordered the dark taupe reclaimed wood which is as presented in the photo but I think it would go best against a lighter wall color than the one I have. I am still happy as it blends in with other colors and textures I have in the room - overall very pleased. Don't be afraid to hammer in the screws if you don't have a drill - that worked perfectly for me when I had had enough of the screwdriver. Suggest light colored accents to contrast with the shelf color - looks way more expensive than it cost hence the misery of assembly. You won't be able to carry it into the house without help - I rolled it and the u wrapped and carried it in one piece at a time.

This is a very unique stylish piece. It took me about an hour to put together and is was easy enough for one person to do. You will need help moving it - it's pretty heavy. The base is very unstable on carpet, but I have it on porcelain tile butted up to a wall. Just because I have two cats that play hard, I am going to hide an L bracket and bolt it to the wall. I would hate for my kitties to bump it hard and crush my babies... they can get pretty feisty! Haven't had guests over yet to see it, but I am expecting some very positive comments.
Beautiful and sturdy!

This beautiful and modern bookcase is a gorgeous focal point in my home office! The reclaimed-wood finish looks great and goes well with the natural color scheme I have in the room. I was impressed by how sturdy it seems. I use it for a combination of heavy textbooks and decorative pieces, so granted I'm not testing its load-bearing limit to the max, but it does seem very sturdy. I love the unique design as it provides a lot of different ways to display different kinds of items (while always looking designer-fancy).
Solid and Holds a Lot!

Love this bookcase- it has that mid-century modern look and great construction. I assembled it by myself and am very pleased with the size, look and solidness of this piece. As with the matching desk that I also purchased and assembled, I used additional wood glue in the assembly and I think I will have a bookcase that lasts for many years..

Wish we could give the shelf 3.5 stars. It is a sturdy, nice quality piece and was relatively easy to put together. We purchased the shelf on sale and found it to be a good value, however we would feel differently if we purchased at full price. We say this because we do not find the shelf to be as functional as we would have liked.
Very pretty and high quality, but...
Xiyue from Raleigh, NC– Verified Buyer
This bookcase is very pretty and is exactly like the picture. It's very easy to assemble that it cost my husband and me about 1 hour. The quality is very good too. I think it's better than Ikea's furniture. However, be aware that this bookcase is not very sturdy on carpet. We took off the foot part of this bookcase but it's still shaking a little bit. It works very well on a wood floor or vinyl floor though.
Just what I was looking for.
Jaysen from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
The bookcase was a steal for its price. The color is accurately depicted in the picture. Setup was easy enough and shipping was prompt and right on time with the schedule.
very sturdy, nice looking bookshelf
Xue from Philadelphia, PA– Verified Buyer
I love this bookshelf. Lots of space for books and also to display items. I have a small loft apartment and this is all I need for all of my things. It did take a significant amount of time to assemble and some of the screws I had to really push down on to get them to screw in to the point where my hands were hurting, which is why i removed one star.
gets lots of compliments!
Tracey from Tallahassee, FL– Verified Buyer
This is a great addition to my office space that has the matching desk. Co-workers and clients comment on how unique this is. Like all of the other pieces in this reclaimed line, they are sturdy and easy to put together.
complicated to build but well worth the effort
Alice from Stamford, CT– Verified Buyer
This shelf took about 3 hours for one person to build. It was complicated but not maddening. It's beautiful and looks just like the picture. It also feels quite solid and sturdy without being overbearingly heavy. We love it.
