The shelf looks nice now that it is assembled but getting there was an experience. The first shelf arrived with damage so I filled out the online replacement request and the new one arrived before the first one was returned which was fortunate because it also arrived damaged. I was able to piece together one good unit between the two sets of parts. There are still some small defects but I tried to put them all on the same side and put that side towards the wall. I may be too demanding but when I purchase something new I expect it to be defect and damage free, it seems to me that more than 50% of the items I purchase from Overstock are either defective or damaged when they arrive. They are, however, very cooperative in replacing the items.Read More
This is a nice sized bookcase for a bedroom or other smaller space; it is very sturdy and has a classy, understated look. It was fairly easy to assemble, with illustration based instructions, like most furniture of the type these days.Read More
I just love it! It's so beautiful and the quality is amazing. I want to say this is real solid wood, it's so heavy. Assemble was pretty quick with 2 people. If I need another bookcase, I would definitely buy this againRead More
I ordered the 5 shelf Havana bookcase, and they accidentally delivered the 3 shelf bookcase instead. I didn't see it was the wrong bookcase until I unpacked it...and as I was unpacking it I saw that 1 middle shelf and the top shelf were badly damaged during shipping. I called Customer Service and organized to get the correct bookcase. They did not ask me to ship the damaged, incorrect bookcase back, so it was still in my garage when the correct bookcase was shipped 5 days later. And a good thing, too! The second delivery was also damaged in shipping! However, I was able to use 2 shelves from the original shipment to replace damaged shelves in the new shipment. Other than the damage (which is caused by the woefully inadequate packaging around the heavy wood elements), I was extremely pleased with the bookcase. Although it is made of MDF (as almost all mass-produced furniture is) it is excellent quality for an MDF product. The holes all line up for easy assembly, the edges are finished well, there are no unsightly gaps, and the veneer is attractive. It is a heavy piece when assembled. I am extremely pleased with it overall. I would recommend that you purchase this bookcase, and assume that it will arrive damaged. Then call Customer Service and get a new shipment sent. That one will probably be damaged too, but you can piece a full bookcase together from the remnants. The packaging is the fault of the overseas manufacturer (I think it is a Malaysian company). Overstock is probably taking a hit on this product because of the customer complaints about damage!Read More
I had no idea how amazingly gorgeous and sturdy MDF and particleboard could actually be until I placed all my big and heavy books in this bookcase. I am, in a word, stunned. The craftsmanship of this piece is obviously world-class. The offset shelf dividers creates an interesting spatial energy within the bookcase itself that then permeates throughout my entire living space, even into the kitchen, because before I cook dinner, I usually grab one of my cookbooks from this shelf, and thats when I remember how amazing this shelf is.Read More
I was completely pleased with the bookshelf. It arrived on time, in one (heavy) box. Everything was well organized and relatively easy to put together. One note, screwing in the bolts is tricky in some cases due to odd angles. The piece looks great in my house. The color and quality are consistent with the product description. I am considering ordering the smaller shelf of this style as well to add. I would highly recommend.Read More
I purchased the president writing desk along with the bookcase, they match perfectly. It seems that the manufacturer is the same for both. Together they make a nice set for any home office. You will definitely need a rubber mallet to put together. My only complaint is that the bookcase does not come with hardware to mount to the wall. The construction is sturdy, however if the bookcase were to fall over it could do some serious damage as it is made out of solid wood.Read More
When I ordered this bookcase I did not expect it to be as beautiful as it is. Even on picture the look is natural, but in reality you can really notice all the natural combinations of material and color, just as the stable construction. My room looks really great with this case, with all the books, photos and candles on it. I could never imagine one piece can pump up the look of a room this much.Read More
My brother works in the furniture industry and when I bought a condo, he warned me about the perils of engineered wood. Certainly the items I saw at IKEA were a testament to the poor quality of these manmade woods, but I loved this book shelf so much I bought it anyway. My brother is coming to visit next week and I can't wait to see what he has to say, hehe :)Read More
