. I purchased the Mandy bookcase to go with two of the Verena bookcases to display artwork. The three look great together. I think the Verena's cubicles are a little more usable for art display. The instructions that came with the bookcases were excellent. I had no trouble putting them together by myself. Once put together, I did not like the way the wall showed through the back of the bookcases, so I lined the back with some pretty off-white rice paper. It actually made the bookcases more elegant and enhanced the art display.
I'm using this for easily accessible storage in my craft room. It's very sturdy and looks wonderful! Plus, putting it together wasn't bad at all; the pieces are all labeled and the directions are very clear and easy to follow!

I use it as a room divider for my apartment, and it saves so much space and it divides my kitchen and livingroom nicely without taking up so much space. Easy maintanance and so was the assembly. It took almost an hour to assemble but not easy to do so. I love the quality especially knowing that i didn't spend much fot it.

I already had one of these for my living room that I use on its side as a room divider. Ordered this one to stand upright in my bedroom. Love the shapes of the shelves. It's not the best setup for actually holding books, but perfect if (like me) you have books of many different sizes and you also want to use it to display pretty things. Took me 1.5 hours to assemble, not including unpacking and cleanup. I forgot to use the glue on the dowels until the last few steps; hope it holds up. Assembly might be difficult for anyone who 1) doesn't like to follow instruction manuals; 2) is easily irritated; and/or 3) is trying to rush.
