I was looking for a bookcase that would not be clunky but could be placed horizontally and hold TONS of books in an interesting way. (I'm an English professor and avid reader, but I wanted my book display to have more of an aesthetic appeal.) This piece is perfect! It's sturdy and spacious. The various sized shelf areas are perfect for housing a variety of books - from large textbooks and reference pieces to small paperback novels. The shelving pieces are interesting but have a bit of symmetry, so once filled it doesn't look cluttered and jumbled. I like this piece for its ability to easily be used vertically or horizontally depending on the room it is in. (Right now I have it on an office wall with a collection of travel art above it which looks funky and interesting.) My only complaint is that two of the stickers (a number and China's quality inspection) were difficult to take off the exterior side of one of the pieces; I was unable to remove some of the adhesive, so I placed that side of the bookcase toward the corner. I'm definitely pleased with my purchase overall, and my more traditional boyfriend was also pleasantly surprised with how well it came together.
The product is of thick wood-product. It's not particle board but it's not oak, either. It is softer than regular wood, though, so be aware. The boards are thick enough that you can have 2 rows of books on 1 shelf; if you use it as a divider, you could have one side for one row of books, and the other side for another row. It's really great that way. Also, it comes with wall anchors and acrews to put into the wall. You choose where to input the screw on the unti, though, so be aware of where you put it.
I really like this product (I brought 2) and it looks amazing. Though it was tough to put together by myself (moderately strong female), I was able to do so. Have a little patience, know that it'll take about an hour by yourself, and use the wood glue!
I had a little trouble, in that one of my boards was damaged, and the replacement they sent was missing an insert. After about 10days, I finally got everything I needed. Be sure to look things over carefully and call right away if there is a problem - these babies sold like Hot Cakes, and they didn't have any replacement parts for me after my initial call. (thank goodness all I needed was the insert.)

It arrived when it was expected. Everything was neatly stacked in the box. Nothing was missing. It took about an hour and 30 minutes to lay everything out and to assemble the bookcase. The stickers that labeled each piece were easily removed. It will look great in any room. Can do so many creative things with this bookcase.

was very excited when the shelf arrived fairly quickly and the box wasn't that heavy. The box was a little damaged but it didn't damage the shelf. I was able to build it in one hour I am very pleased on how nice it looks and it is a beautiful shade of wood, It's sturdy enough to hold my book collections. I love it!
I was looking for a shelf for our guest room to display collections of family heirlooms and this was the perfect choice. The arrangement of the shelves is interesting in itself and they lend themselves very well to showcase objects. I'm also very glad I found a shelf without a backing... the dark background would have "swallowed up" the things I wanted to display. This display cabinet works just perfectly in our guest room and
I am very pleased with the quality. And the shipping price? Awesome.

I was looking for an open bookshelf that wasn't too deep for behind a couch and based on the size of the wall, I ended up getting two that I set up next to each other and this has worked great to display books and other items in a creative way. The plastic bolt covers (from where you assemble the pieces) are ok but are largely covered by items on the bookshelf so this isn't much of an issue. Overall, was much cheaper than similar options and is a great quality!
I didn't like the way the wood looked - I thought it looked like real wood online but it looks fake. Also, I didn't like that it came with glue to assemble it. The quality just wasn't what I expected. It's a cool design, though. Overstock was great with the return.
For the price and style, this is a great item. Wasn't too hard to assemble. Nicely displays items in my little house and I get comments from visitors on how attractive it is. Much cheaper than the hutches I was looking at.

Wish the images indicated color shown. Is the whitewash considered the light oak? I understand computer monitors will vary colors, but can you still give me some kind of idea what this is called?Paula on Mar 4, 2015Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.

We bought this bookshelf and LOVE it. We've got it standing vertically, the tall wall. Does anyone know of a smaller bookshelf that's matching that we might purchase to put along side it? We want to create a sort of L shape, but we don't have room for another one this big turned on its side. Thanks!Alexis on Oct 25, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Alexis, at this time we do not currently have a smaller bookcase that matches this bookcase. I hope this helps, have a good day!overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 28, 2014
Tough question since there is so much variation...also depends on if you situate unit vertically or horizontally: Width of shelf platforms varies from : 15.5, 12.7, 7, 6 inches. Height of shelves: 19.5, 12.5, 12 inches.kgportland on Sep 8, 2014

Yes and it is a very sturdy and good quality item.happyandrelaxed on Jul 23, 2014
It's finished on all sides - would work just fine in the center of a room. And I used it on its side, too. Be warned, though. It's a heavy piece, so make sure it's safely placed.lm0411 on Jul 31, 2014
We are using it horizontally behind a couch as a room divider. It will be fine as a stand alone.1sttimehomeowners on Aug 19, 2014

Sorry to repeat a question, but I just wanted to clarify if the shelves have a limit of 5lb (the previous answer given) or 50lb? From other reviews it seems like they could hold more than 5lb. Thank you!jxye on Jun 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question jxye. Yes, that is correct. The shelves have a max weight of 5 pounds. Overall, the shelves can hold up to 40 to 50 pounds as an entire unit. The shelves that are on the bottom will be able to hold approximately 5 to 8 pounds. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 26, 2014

Hello jul8787, the number of books this shelving unit can hold would depend on the book sizes. Thank you for shopping with us! Vicki Hoverstockcustomercare2 on May 18, 2014
The piece looks wonderful. You can put books and other things on this particular shelf. Was a bit time consuming to put together but not badthomiara13 on Jun 4, 2014
The picture styled the shelves as if they are better for show pieces, but you can actually position many books on them. I use them for all my books and office equipment. The sides were deep enough to hold as many books as I needed.queenpumpkin on Jun 7, 2014
