We ordered 3 units and they went together very easily. We do recommend that you place all pieces out and identify all parts first and just do a bit of brainstorming - as with all flat pack items. Overall, we love them. Even coloring, all three matched perfectly with each other. I wish they have other colors than black because I would have mix and match it for my living room.
I bought two of these shelf units for my son's room. Assembly was easy and took about 1.5 hrs for each. They are packed really well, deigned really well and sturdy. I'm very happy with this purchase. The color is black and true to the picture on the site.

I bought 2 of these - one to be used vertically and the other horizontally on a bare wall in my music room - wanted something with a narrow profile and a little more interesting than your standard bookcase - this was just what I was looking for - put both together in an aftternoon - lots of space for books and display items without being boring. Wood grain color is little fake looking up close, but at a distance they look great!

A very good quality product. Well designed, well engineered as far as the materials and fasteners, and easy to put together. The 1st one took us about 2 hours, but the second only an hour. One complaint/ suggestion for improvement relates to those dumb round stickers that are supposed to cover fastener holes...TOO Small ... Make them a 1/4" larger diameter OR make them square so that at least the corners can be used to position them over (not in) the holes. Square dots over round holes....what a concept. Like the product very much.

We needed a good book shelf, went through 3 or 4, and none of those were sturdy enough for two kids! So we figured "might as well pay a little more" with hopes that the saying "you get what you pay for" was accurate. And we were right. This book shelf is amazing. Its so big, and holds all my books PLUS it displays pictures really well. ONLY thing we didnt like was that if put against a wall, the top kinda angles out. We had to screw in a L bracket to get it to stand up right against the wall. BUT that's ok, seeing as we have kids, we need a little safety support.

I bought two bookcases in black. They are very well packed and arrived without any flaws. The instructions are straightforward and easy to follow. These bookcases are made of MDF with a wood grain veneer and look very nice. I'm very happy with the purchase and they look great in my home office.
I've gone through many bookcases for my vinyl collection over the years, and this is by far the best. Pretty much all of the furniture I own had to be assembled, so I have experience, but it only took this 5'2" woman 2 hours to assemble by myself. Easy picture instructions. It's very sturdy and and a beautiful dark wood laminate.
Can you tell me how much the bookshelves weigh when shipped? I live in a building that does not have an elevator and I'm on the 3rd floor.2801 on May 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I was looking at this shelf to store my vinyl records... do you know if a vinyl record would fit in the cubbies?wnh1977 on Sep 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello wnh1977, the height of the cubby is 13.1 inches high. Vinyl's are usually 10-12 inches, so they should fit just fine. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 16, 2013
It appears that some of the cubby holes do not have a back. Do any of them have a back? I would think that it would make it more sturdy if there was a back board on them.

Hi eviemaurer, this display shelf does not come with a backing for an aesthetically pleasing look. A backing may support the unit more but that is not the point of this display shelf. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 8, 2013

What are the dimensions of the individual cubbies? Do you recommend any bins or baskets that will fit inside?brrrak on Feb 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The cubby holes (large one) is approximately 13 inches H X 14.5 inches wide X 12 inches deep. Take a look at item number #12280098 or SKU 14188127 which should be compatible with the dimensions. Note: there are several shelves that have three cubby holes instead of two, so you make not be able to find baskets for the smaller as that width would only be about 7 inches wide. You can type storage bins or baskets in the Overstock search bar to see everything that is available. Thank you for your inquiry. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 4, 2013
