When I ordered I thought this was one complete unit - it's not. It's three separate shelves that you can put side by side or put separately. This wasn't a big deal but it was something that I think should be pointed out in the product description.
The shelves product a lot of room for display and *some* books. Most ladder shelves, these included, would not be up to taking the weight of a lot of heavy, hardback books, but for my purpose of mostly displaying pottery, some office supply tubs and bins, and a few books it will work out fine.
Shipping is in TWO separate boxes. They came the same day but about 4 hours apart. Assembling was not too difficult and they will be easy to move around. A great modern, minimalist look that is very open shelving. Lays nicely against the wall and is steady sitting on carpet.

I planned to put custom built-in bookshelves in my study, but received a quote of $900 and decided to go with these. Boy am I happy with the decision! These bookshelves look very good against an inset wall in my study. They hold many books, as well as decorative accents. It gives my study a slick and contemporary look. It came with extra parts and was fairly easy to assemble (my husband and I put all three together in about 1 1/2 hr). I highly recommend these bookshelves.
I am so disappointed in my LeaningLadder Shelf. While i really love the concept, one of my ladders was delivered with a few broken wood pieces having fallen off from its side bar.. It also has some serious aesthetic issues with one shelf: The dark paint ? had been scratched or peeled off thereby exposing a large light area beneath. That flaw is not a big deal, i can try to match the top color and paint it, but the broken pieces require some serious gluing. Currently, It sits disassembled in a corner until my handy son gets to fix it. And frankly I now worry whether that ladder will hold more than 2 pieces of paper, its integrity having been ruined. It's not as if the ladders came free of charge. . If i wanted a piece of junk i would have scoured my local streets. So why didn't i return it? As most sellers know, many customers would rather not deal with the hassle. I'm one of those. Much too unwieldily for me to deal with. Sadly, this was my first order with Overstock. I really thought i had found some answers to shopping. It appears not. .
The shelves went together easily with 3 exceptions, but those exceptions are important.
1. On the first shelf that I put together the metal cam lock used on the shelf foot broke when I twisted to tighten in. This is a metal piece and it literally broke into two pieces.
2. The shelves are assembled in two pieces: the top two shelves and the bottom three. You then join the two pieces together by fitting the top piece over two wooden dowels on the bottom piece. On both the units I've put together there's almost a 1/4" gap between the top and the bottom pieces.. Very cheap looking. (Even trying to hammer the top shelf down more securely onto the bottom shelf didn't work.)
3. Finally, the wood dowels appear to be made from incredibly cheap material. They have no strength to them.
I've put together a lot of furniture (my whole kitchen is*****) and I really think that for the price, these shelves were no bargain.

On a whole we love them! It took us about an hour to put them together and we are both assembly challenged. They look good can hold my pictures and books. ( don't make it too heavy) I would highly recommend them.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? We chose black and it matches perfectly!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was accurate - I thought they would be shorter
I was excited to unpack my books. Two typical sized book boxes full fit nicely with room for displaying the books interestingly. Before I purchased I read a review that emphasized the fact that these shelves do not need to be used together. I have the three that I purchased in s eparate rooms of my apartment. Each single shelf looks great by itself. The assembly was amazingly easy and I'm not particularly good at assembling. Great value!
