These leaning shelves are sold at Container Store or Crate & Barrel for more than you'd buy them here. What annoyed me was not that they were more expensive elsewhere, but that they're always sold in NOT BLACK colors, ie white, Espresso, grey. Does anyone make anything just IN BLACK? Overstock was the only place where I found these shelves in just plain black, which matched my decor perfectly.

I live in a small condo and this shelf fits perfectly without being overwhelming in size. The shelf arrived quickly and was easy to assemble alone. It's not a chocolate/espresso color, which I'd prefer. It has more of a cherry tone. After searching for something like this piece for a long time, the color works okay with my decor.

When I saw all the issues people listed in their reviews of this bookshelf I was hesitant to buy it, but this was the only bookshelf that came in the color/style I wanted and had the capacity I needed. I decided to give it a shot, figuring I could return it if it was unsatisfactory. I ordered the espresso one and am very happy with it. Others that reviewed that product mentioned receiving damaged parts. I received mine well-packaged and undamaged, with all the parts. The wood is very soft and easily scratched though, and I accidentally nicked one of the sides while putting it together. I am not at all a handy or DIY person, but I managed to put it together in about an hour. It is very sturdy. Though it comes with parts to attach it to a wall, it doesn't need to be. Mine sits on carpet and is level. I use it to hold all of my books (each shelf is full) and a few knicknacks.

The style is exactly what I wanted. I would have wished it came in an espresso color rather than black however. The wood pieces are not equal and some stick out more than others; it is barely noticeable though. Stickers are given to cover up the screw holes, which I think it's where the maker dropped the ball, for they look rather obvious and ugly.

This is an excellent book case: tall, all-wood construction, deep shelves, and sleek espresso finish. They look wonderful in my office. The instructions were good, but it still took me over three hours to assemble the first one and about two hours for the second by myself. (If you have two adults, this probably can be done in an hour because it is considerably harder for one person to line up the heavy pieces.) All-wood bookcases this size are priced at over a thousand dollars each at other sites (if you can find them at all) that I have visited, so at about $400, it is a fantastic value. There are also a couple of minor issues. Several of the cams stripped when I turned them. One side panel had a three-foot crack on it at the time of the delivery. The pieces were well packaged, so I really cannot fault the manufacturer for this issue. In any case, Overstock sent me a replacement panel within a few days. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase.

I bought my first Plymouth bookshelf about 4 months ago for my office, and I liked the first so much that I bought a second one a few weeks before Thanksgiving. I have some office furniture from a company that is no longer in business - Storehouse furniture, AND the espresso finish on this bookshelf is a spot-on match to the drafting desk & file cabinets I already have. These shelves have a solid, solid feel to them... nice weight, too. My neighbor and I can assemble one of these in about 45 minutes. You won't go wrong with this bookshelf.

I ordered two of these shelves. I had to get someone to help me put them together. (YOU NEED AT LEAST FOUR HANDS!) But I couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. I butted them up side by side and now have a beautiful wall of shelves. They're sturdy and plenty deep, so larger books and nicknacks have room. The Espresso color is really pretty. Almost black. I may get more shelves for my den later. If I do, I'll be getting these. Love them!

I bought two of these, assembled them by myself without power tools, each in about 20-25 minutes (I know this for certain because I put each one together completely within an episode of Arrested Development, which run about 20-22 minutes). They are a rich, dark brown color, exactly as I expect 'espresso' to be. Reading some of the older reviews that complained about the color being more red, I think Overstock may have addressed this issue as I don't see this complaint in more recent reviews and that certainly wasn't the case here. It even comes with little wooden covers for the screw holes, which can be seated securely & without damage by a good hit with a rubber mallet. Note the shelves are very tall, so these lend themselves well to display of taller items or books. The only improvement I would make would be to offer an alternative with an additional shelf with the shelves closer together. Overstock, if you offered that item remotely close to this price, I'd pick up two tomorrow.

Ordered two to fit side by side in master bedroom for wall unit effect. Quality of wood is excellent, shape and design aesthetic very nice for a "ladder" book case. Expresso color is warm and rich. deeper shelves on the bottom now house my wireless printer and larger books. Have built Ikea and other Overstock pieces for years and never had difficulty, unfortunately these instructions reversed the number for two side frames and overall was very difficult to assemble especially alone. Finally paid a young man to put them together and so they look fabulous!!! Very happy with product and OS delivery, well packaged and bubble wrapped, instructions could have been clearer.

We really love the style of the book case, but we were hoping the walnut would be a much lighter would. It is very dark and is what we would think the espresso would be. It would be nice if they had color samples on the website when ordering so you could truly see what to expect.

Very nice. Easy to assemble. Fair quality. Lightweight but sturdy. The only complaint I have is the color is a little off then what is perceived in the photo. Looks like it would be more of an espresso color but they actually are lighter and have a reddish tint to them. Still they are a good buy and I would recommend if you are looking for something comparable.

These are really nice. I bought one a few years ago thru **** in the espresso color. These are the same and got 2 for much cheaper!! They're a great price, wish I would have bought my other here last time!

For the price, I think it's a good deal, especially when I've been comparative shopping for these type bookcases for quite awhile. Pretty easy to set up, I did it all by myself and then had my brother set up the 2nd one. Not the sturdiest of bookcases, BUT if you're only putting a few books here and there, pictures, candles, (lightweight items) then it does its job well. Also, says walnut color, but yes, looks more expresso to me which is great, because I love the the darker wood colors anyway. Overall, I love them in my new office and I think I got a good deal!

absolutely love this bookcase! it's slim and modern. Love the light airy feel it gives the room! I have an espresso finished daybed so was perfect for our small guest bedroom. Don't miss out on a great item. You'll love it, trust me!!

The piece looks great in my livingroom. A bit difficult to put together but well worth it. It is Dark Expresso not brown like it says but by reading someone else's review I knew this and that is why I bought it.

The Ethan Allen Shelves have a great look to them. They are very solid and very easy to assemble. They shipped quickly and they have a great modern and rustick look. The wood grain on each of the shelves is a nice finish and is also good. The shelves are a walnut color and go very well with even espresso colored furniture. I bought three of them and put them side by side with leather furniture and it looks fantastic.

I needed something for my office to keep my wireless printer on that was decorative. I decided that this would work perfectly and give me extra shelving for pictures and baskets. It arrived within a week and was packaged well. My husband put it together within an hour without too much complaining. It is much larger than I expected and that works out just fine. The wood goes very well with the expresso desk. I may purchase another to sit along side my fireplace to hold the AV equipment. I highly recommend this ladder shelf.

This shelf is pretty sturdy, but no matter how much you tighten the screws you can see cracks between the pieces. I bought a similar product in expresso color from a local store for $20 less and it looks so much better....not sure if it's just the white color or what. I'm dissapointed in the look, but it's too costly to return. I would not reccomend.

I like these book cases but I think they're a bit too high priced...otherwise nice cases. Love the color!

For the price, this is a decent bookshelf with a nice style and it will do the trick. Fine furniture it's not (some little flecks of the finish/color came off as I unpacked the parts) but it does look pretty nice and seems sturdy enough for now. I will echo other reviews in saying the color is a bit more reddish than espresso but it just so happens I needed to put it next to another piece of furniture that is relatively that same hue anyway, so no biggie. The instructions say you'll need two people to assemble, but I was able to do it on my own in ~90 minutes (and I am NOT the handy type by any stretch of the imagination!). I got a little confused about how to use the cam lock but was able to find a really helpful YouTube video that got me on the right track. Overall, I am satisfied with this product and what I paid for it.
