Great product that matches description and confirms previous reviews from Westlake, OH on 11/26/2014 – Verified Buyer
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.

Pros: Great for the price - looks like wood though isn't - looks good as part of the reclaimed series and you can leave shelves out if you decide it is too high
Cons: A pain in the neck to put together - although all parts were present and accounted for but I would have rather been drinking a glass of wine and watching Seinfeld that's about it!

Looks Amazing from Wylie, TX on 01/20/2015 – Verified Buyer
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.

Sturdy and looks great from New York, NY on 04/08/2015 – Verified Buyer
I love this bookshelf. I don't understand what all the negative comments were about. This shipped to me in perfect condition-all the wooden planks were sandwiched in between plastic sheets and styrofoam boards. The instructions were quite clear as well and easy to follow. I put this together all by myself, and only asked my boyfriend for help in flipping the bookshelf over (because you'll be putting it together upside down). I love the look of it, and the quality is great.

Pros: Easy to assemble, pretty bookshelf, modern

Easy on the Eye - Inexpensive, adorable bookcase, not high end from Casselberry, FL on 11/13/2015 – Verified Buyer
Upon very close inspection, it is clear this is not wood but still a nice general look. Overall its a nice updated look which is both rustic and modern. Super easy to build (per handyman). Def. need to bolt to the wall as it is very light weight and way too tempting to climb for little peeps. For the price, great buy.

Pay attention to the dimensions, we knew it was not very tall going in so were not surprised but you may want to measure out the dimensions on the wall where you plan to put this to make sure it feels right to you.

Pros: Inexpensive, quick build, updated look
Cons: may not last forever, but at this price, who cares

Works with any design! from Clay, NY on 09/17/2015 – Verified Buyer
I was a little concerned that this bookshelf would be too modern with our furniture, but you can change it's style depending what you put on the shelves! It took my husband a little while to put it together, since there were a lot of parts, but he said everything was very well packaged to avoid any scrapes or chips on the boards. The color is exactly what you see in the picture, and we will definitely be ordering some matching pieces to complete our room!

Pros: great value, color is exactly like picture

Very stylish and sturdy from Columbia, MD on 08/11/2015 – Verified Buyer
I purchased this book shelf for a small office and its perfect. It's got a funky style and its pretty packed with books, trinkets and even a printer and is still holding together. I think it would be better on a hard floor rather than a carpet, because the carpet may not serve a flat enough surface. I'm getting the computer desk and end table part of the set!

Pros: Great value, stylish, durable
Cons: Assembly was not too hard, but some pieces had to be forced in or didn't flush all the way together.

Solid and Holds a Lot! from Woodridge, IL on 05/04/2014 – Verified Buyer
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..

Very pretty and high quality, but... from Raleigh, NC on 12/11/2014 – 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.

very sturdy, nice looking bookshelf from Philadelphia, PA on 02/22/2015 – 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.
