Purchased 3, opened the first box and there were scratches on it and one of the shelves wouldn't set correctly because of manufacturing issue, opened the 2nd box and found one of the support/hinges was not installed properly. Never opened the 3rd box, sent them all back. I thought it would be the prefect fit for a child's bedroom and I was ok with that they wouldn't be "high quality" but couldn't bring myself to pay for them when they looked used and clearly weren't manufactured very well. Wondered what else I would discover once I went to put things on them.
These stackable bookcases are of sturdy wood and look sturdy and solid, not cheap. Or flimsy. I bought 2 to stack and they look like one unit once put together. They are very easy to assemble requiring almost no assembly. Only one fault: the company provides small knobs ro put in screw holes for a finished lok. The knobs do not fit so they are useless unless uou have tools to file them down to fit, manufacturer take note! Otherwise, an excellent buy
I got two of these bookcases. The best feature is quick assembly and disassembly to move into another place. They are stylish and make my library look so nice. I get comments on them a lot. They support all the "heavy" engineering books my husband has and not sagging. So, I love them of course.
Love it. I needed a small bookcase to hold my child's DVDs and CDs to put next to the stereo and this fits the bill exactly. And I love that there's absolutely no assembly required. Just take it out of the box and unfold! And, it is quite sturdy on our wood floor. Looks good too--I like the wide array of color finishes.
This shelving unit is perfect for small places. I wouldn't use it for storing more than one HEAVY reference book, but it can hold a standard Webster hardback dictionary and a few other books. There is still room for stacks of documents and random odds and ends. I would not recommend it for printers, toaster ovens, or other relatively fragile items. I really wish that there were a "Very Good" category. I don't think that the item is "Excellent", and my only option is "Good". My honest evaluation over all is "Very Good"!
I wanted a bookcase that was stable, narrow, and not made of pressed wood. I found one. I bought two, and placed one on top of the other. It fits in the narrow space I had available and sees as sturdy as one could expect. I did take the precaution of placing the heaviest books on the bottom shelf, but not at all sure it was necessary.
I wanted a narrow book case that I could store when not in use and would look well with surrounding furniture. This fits the bill perfectly for DVD's, books and games in the family room. It would also work well in my office for books I want to keep handy. I can easily recommend it.
It is a very nice piece of furniture. The fact that it's simply foldable and requires no assembly is great. the quality seems great so far. I am using it as a shelving unit for my kitchen. The color ( I got the honey oak one), however, is certainly brighter than it is shown in the pic, it has a reddish kind of tone to it. Still works for me.
