Questions & Answers
Safavieh James 39" Bookcase
I don't recommend this piece.
Patrice from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer
As others have said, this is a very flimsy "bookcase" and too unstable to hold books. I can't think what I would use it for and I'm stuck with it now. The packaging was insufficient and the top back bar was broken off when I took it out of the box. That bar had been secured to the side pieces with a 1/2-inch long, 1/8 inch diameter wooden peg on either side, which obviously snapped in half during travel. I purchased this piece to hold instructional binders for a home office but it isn't sturdy enough for even the 6 binders I intended. I can't use it to display anything breakable because the shelves are not well secured to the sides and could easily shift and drop everything. It's nice to look at (that's why the 2 stars), but also pretty much useless. I wouldn't purchase it again and definitely wish I hadn't purchased it the first time and I can't recommend it to another.

This shelf is inexpensive, and it looks like it. I am using it for work, but the finish is very uneven. Doesn't come with bolts to secure the shelves to the frame. It will get the job done but I probably would've purchased something else if I'd seen it in person first.
Great Easy Product

Came in a flimsy box as others mentioned but was not damaged. Just unfold, put in a few bolts for support and you are done! Looks nicer than other budget options, goes with my dark wood modern decor. A good buy!

Box came and was flimsy so I was worried the product would be damaged, but it wasn't. It was very easy to put together, just unfold and screw in a few bolts. Looks beautiful in my space. I am very happy with the finish (doesn't look overdone, and wish i had room for another.
