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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It matched the color from the site pretty well.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the bookcase is great quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate.
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!
This is a great piece. I'm using it in my combo Office/guestroom to divide the room and to maintain office clutter. I bought a bunch of rattan baskets from Pier 1 of varying sizes and they all fit perfectly. It looks really good in the room and keeps the room feeling light and airy.
I ordered the leveled bookcase to fill empty space in my loft. Originally, I had planned to have it stand tall against the wall, but in the end have it laying on it's side, which I actually like more. It fills the space along the wall nicely. One of the reasons that I didn't leave it standing was that the piece to attach it to the wall was missing and I didn't feel like wasting time to get it sent out. Secondly, on one of the sides the board is a bit warped or something that is causing the attached part not to lay flush against it. It took me about 2 hours to assemble on my own, not too bad, you at least get to use regular tools rather than the hex wrenches that you sometimes get. The quality is pretty good and it looks great in the room. I love all of the different shelves to stack things on. Overall, pleased with the shelf and recommend it!
This was one of the easiest do it yourself installs of the many products I have put together. Add to that the thickness of the MDF panels and it is a quite sturdy and attractive piece. Take your time and follow the directions and you will be happy with the results!
I was wondering if the unit is placed horizontally, can it hold a flat screen TV?amari605 on Mar 21, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us amari605. It can be positioned either horizontally or vertically. This item has never been tested to be used as a TV stand, depending on the flat screen that the customer has, we don’t advise that you use this as a TV stand, but if you do, you will take the risk of the bookshelf not being able to take the weight of the flat screen TV in any position. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 21, 2014
Yes it should be able to hold even a very large one.rd4u on Mar 23, 2014
Tho I am no expert, I think it would hold a flat screen TV. - this is a very sturdy unit. But I would attach it to the wall, just to be safe. That's what I did and it feels rock-solidevflax on Apr 11, 2014
HI, I ordered the Santiago shelf and I am returning it as the finish was very fake looking. This one possibly looks like better quality. Thoughts?mzrh55 on Feb 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I wouldn't recommend this product. I bought it and the individual shelves either stick out or are indented in. It makes it look cheap.momi8 on Feb 4, 2014
I have this in my den, it's sturdy and looks very elegant.elicastle on Feb 7, 2014
I have this in my kitchen to hold all my cookbooks (I'm a chef, so I have quite a few), and it's both sturdy and beautiful. The dark color is great, and it's handy to cover the fact that its not real wood.jazzmundson on Feb 13, 2014
I HAVE THIS SHELVING UNIT IN MY LIVING ROOM AND I'VE BEEN VERY HAPPY WITH MINE.miuper on Feb 20, 2014
I have this unit too and use it in a closet to store my huge yarn supply. It is almost too nice to hide in a closet. It's very very sturdy and rich looking. I LOVE it! No problem...no dents, no chipped paint...NOTHING!carolshaffer1 on Mar 22, 2014
I bought one and it was easy to put together. It added so much character to my living room that I ordered a second one. I love them for the fact they were fairly easy to put together myself and they are of pretty high quality and functionality.mritchie on Mar 28, 2014

Condo2013, thank you for your answer. Saved me from a big mistake. jim107.jim107 on May 5, 2013
My pleasure jim107. I just remeasured the one I put together recently and it is actually slighty less than 21"W X 13"L X 11.5" Deep. Glad I was able to help. It works for me but your 22" radio definitely would not fit.condo2013 on May 6, 2013
