    • nice looking but smelly

      It's a little narrower than I expected it to be, but it holds all the books and things I wanted to put in it. It was very simple assembly. But the finish on the wood has a very strong chemical odor, I had to sleep with the windows open last night because the smell was unbearable. I hope it goes away after a couple of days.

      Item is well made and easy to put together. Fits nicely in space it was bought for. Probably a little overpriced. After I purchased this item I found it for $$ cheaper.

    • Nice bookshelf!

      I needed a white book shelf for my daughter's room. The style is excellent, and easy to put together. The quality is acceptable though not superb, as it's not all made of real wood. Also, it's pretty small for the price, therefore a 4 star.

    • Excellent

      Easy cheesy to put together until you get to the shelves which is usually the easy part. Just make sure that the direction is correct, and you should have no problem

    • Good quality accent piece

      I bought this piece for a guest bedroom. I was most concerned about the color, its hard to find colored bookshelves and I needed a particular hue of off white. The color is perfect for what I wanted. The quality was better than I expected. It goes together very easily - did it in about 15 minutes and you cannot tell its a self assembly - all the fasteners are hidden. Its very sturdy, takes a littel muscle to move once its assembled. The only complaint I have is the shelf feet. These are the little feet that goe into the holes that the shelves sit on. The feet themselves are high quality, metal with rubber coating, butthey dont fit the holes well - the holes are too big and they fall out unless the shelve is sitting on it.

    • Great product.

      Super easy to put together. It took me less than 15 minutes to assemble it by myself and it appears to be pretty sturdy.

    • Just OK

      The top of the bookcase was split across the top (through the delivery maybe?), two of the shelves were a little too big and scratched the sides when put in. It is easy to put together though, and I like the style & color. I think the price is a little high for what you actually get.

    • you get what you pay for

      Make sure you know the dimensions. it really isn't "tall" for a "tall bookcase". Upon taking the pieces out of the box I found a broken piece. i called and emailed the manufacturer and never have gotten a response. We made it work anyway. The paint job is very poor. oh, there are no huge defects, but there are alot of places where there were air bubbles in the paint, and if you look closely you can see where they popped and there are small "holes" in the paint. It would have been too hard to put it all back in the box to ship back so we used it in a back workroom instead of in one of the front offices like it was ordered for.

    • Decent bookcase

      Decent little bookcase. Assembly was a bit of a pain as one of the screw holes had been painted over, but it seems pretty solid after that challenge. It's not perfect, as there are a few not-too-noticeable dings and sloppy paint issues, but overall it's pretty nice.

    • What is the difference between "chocolate" and "expresso" color?

      • Hello bicylejej, the espresso is a darker shade of brown. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • It says this is 48" high. Is that including the feet of the bookcase? Or do the feet really make this higher than 48"?

      • Hello caseyo1, thank you for your interest in the Tall Bookcase Fair Haven. The 48" highdoes include the feet. Thank you for shopping with us

    • Is the sand color available ?

    • In one comment from you, I read the shelves are not adjustable (10/8/12) and in another (5/9/12) you say they are. Which is it since it would be necessary for me to know if I wanted to buy it.

    • How tall is this book case?

    • how much assembly is required. please be specific thanks

      • This item does not come assembled. You will be required to do all of the assembly.

    • describe "composite wood". mdf, hdf, particleboard, just what is the product made of. i want to know before i order. thank you.

      • This is made up of birch solids and birch veneers. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

    • Is the backing a cardboard (or similar) material?

    • What are the dimensions of the space between the shelves? Is there a weight limit for each shelf? Thanks.

      • The shelf dimension is based on your preference as they are adjustable. The weight limit is approximately 30 lbs per shelf.

    • When will you get the Ivory in stock again?

      • I'm so sorry, it pains me to say we don't have information made available to us on when or if items will come back in stock.

    • Will you be restocking black?

      • We should be getting the black back in stock. Usually we have to sell out of all colors before we get more of one color back in stock.

    • Does this item require assembly?
