With its unique, modern design, this convenient bookcase display cabinet is both functional and beautiful. It features a vertical frame and five staggered shelves, positioned to create different-sized spaces for your small and large treasures....more
I was a bit scared that this item didn’t have a review, and that other, more expensive bookcases/display cabinets had some bad reviews.
But it is much sturdier than I had imagined. I didn't need to secure it to the wall. Came in excellent condition and in only 5 days. The color is slightly darker than the picture.
Easy to assemble, you might need more hands when installing the racks.
Only thing you should pay attention to is the back bars and which side to use; it is not clearly stated in the manual. Having quite a bit of experience in this area (I assembled almost all the furniture in my house) I wasted a few minutes on the back panel.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap contemporary display stand.

Overall happy with the shelf. Sturdy, contemporary look, fairly nice size but could be a bit taller. Assembly took some time, but was easy and it's good to have a second pair of hands to help. If you like the style of this shelf you shouldn't be disappointed!

I was looking for something a little different and this filled the bill wonderfully. Every one that has seen it has asked where I bought it. I am very happy with how fast it got to me and the ease of putting it together. It looks like it has always been in my livingroom.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very sturdy
How accurate was the on site description of the product? just like description.
This is actually a beautiful piece. It doesn't look cheap and it's sturdy. My son put it together and some of the tips earlier buyers shared helped quite a bit. Beware of some of the holes not being drilled through far enough though.
The only thing I don't like about it is the vertical piece that comes right down the middle of the front of the shelf. Be aware that the shelves only can be arranged one way (I thought I could turn the unit around, but the back side is unfinished).
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is what you expect for the price. It does look very nice and is solid

So far my experience with this item, has been very different from reviews I have read which is surprising to me. I purchased this item on a Thursday, and it was on my door on Monday. I have purchased a lot of things online to save wasted time driving around and this item has been good. It took me close to an hour and a half to successfully assemble this item. I laid all the items out on the floor with appropriate labels so I would be able to become familiar with everything. After it was built it looks really good. I really liked the multidimensional factor to this item. Overall im very satisfied and will be purchasing from overstock again.
this is rather standard "flat pack" furniture, same basic construction and materials. It is pretty simple to assemble just take a moment to
know what is going where and it will all go together in 20min.
It will not take a full set of books since the shelves float, but for a display it works well and the design removes it from the
standard basic seen over and over...
Nice accent item
Very difficult to assemble. Instructions poor and I found that I had to redo several section. Of course, when I thought I was done - I saw that I had one side on backward. So.... next time someone visits - this goes to the basement. Had it not been so heavy and taken so much work to take apart - I would have sent it back. So... it is basement bound.
This bookcase looks just like it does in the picture and a great value. I looked endlessly for a bookcase that was unique but not unreasonable in price. This fit the bill. The only issue is that I put it together alone and it does take some time (granted, I didn't have a few of the pieces put together correctly-- pay close attention to the directions). I would definitely recommend this!

Want to put these next to each other on a long wall. I saw a similar question below, but was not clear on the answer. If I put two units together will the shelves touch to form in essence one large unit? Thank you!xmas2006 on Mar 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us, the shelves will not touch to form in essence one large unit because the base of the item is longer than the 2nd and 4th shelves causing space between the shelves. Please let us know if you have any further question.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 28, 2013

Just confirming that those purchased or manufacturer recommends only 5 pds per shelf? The picture is misleading and looks as if it could be 10-15 per shelf due to what they have pictured.anr1982 on Nov 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Of course you will want to be careful and not over load the shelf with over weight items. Can not confirm your question, as I don't know where you received your information.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 20, 2012
It's really only 5 lbs per shelf? Just making sure you didn't mean to say 50 lbs. Thanks! on Aug 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The maximum weight for each shelf ranges between 3 and 5 pounds. The bottom shelf can hold up to 8-10 pounds, because it''s placed on the floor. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2012
The maximum weight for each shelf only requires 3-5 lbs. The very bottom one can take up to 8-10 lbs. since it’s on the floor. But the floating ones about 3-5 lbs. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2012
