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.

The book/display shelf is very sturdy. The wood feels solid and will definitely hold items in placed. I purchased the espresso colored one and it was a very deep brown so it matched brown and black colors. It took about an hour and a half to fully construct one of these things, but i'd say half that time was vacuuming the styrofoam off the wood. It fit perfectly in the space I needed it to!

While I would recommend this to a friend, it would be with the advice that the espresso color is NOT espresso. It is the old Bombay Company Cherry...which is a nice color, but is in no way a black-brown. If you want dark, order black. It's a simple, nice design and moderately easy to put together. The back braces can require some finagling to fit into the predrilled holes.

I would recommend this product to a friend. It was easy to assemble as long as there are two people. The color is beautiful.

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!!

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!

This bookcase was easy enough to put together and looks great. The pieces and holes fit perfectly and the instructions were 4 out of 5 for clarity. I got the dark walnut color and it is darker than in the picture online, more like an espresso color than the medium brown in the picture. Overall a very nice bookshelf for the price and better quality than most stuff at ***.

We put this next to our tv that hangs in the living room. It's really a nice piece for the money. It even came with an attachment to secure it to the wall so it wont tip over. The wood is a nice deep dark walnut color--almost espresso. My very handy husband had it assembled in about 30 minutes. Not sure how long it would take the average person. All boards were labeled 1,2,3,4 etc and great instructions. It looks great!

Need to reflect the correct product color. Description states "Dark Brown" but the product that arrived was espresso. This clashed with existing furniture. It caused inconvenience and product could not be used.

I ordered 2 to put in my office against the back wall behind my desk, and was able to assemble them all by myself. Instructions could be better written/illustrated, but once i figured it out it was quite simple. Having 2 next to each other creates a set look as if they're one contiguous unit, and the color and style is contemporary and definitely different from the usual bookshelf. I was able to put heavy big binders and books on the lower shelves, and at the top some picture frames. Looks beautiful and like a million bucks. No need for pricier shelves, this one is definitely a bang for your buck product. The only issue i had was a couple of side boards (on either side of each shelf) were loose and could have been better secured. I just did the best i could to nail them down. Other than that the unit is sturdy and well worth the money. The color is stunning, actually a bit more of a mahogany-espresso shade than walnut, and goes well with the rest of the other furniture in my office. Highly recommended for an adult apartment or study/office. I would bolt them down if for a child's room, as they are not that heady and the kids can possibly knock them over.

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

Ours was espresso or BLACK in color. Just what I wanted. We have two. Love them. Very strong, sturdy. I do not anchor them to the wall, even with our young children who climb. They hold SO many books. Shelves are adjustable, easy to wipe, Overall beautiful finish.

Accidentally ordered two of these, but ended up working out perfectly! Put one next to the other and looked great. Color is the perfect dark wood I was looking for to match my other furniture (not too dark/espresso and not too cherry). Pretty much the exact color in the picture. Set up was simple. I was able to build both by myself. Only complaint - the top 3 shelves are separate from the bottom two creating a break in the long pieces of the ladder. I didn't really have too much of a problem with it, but if you're looking for sleek lines, you may want to try something else. Definitely a great purchase! Get lots of compliments!

The bookcase arrived quickly! It is exactly as described. My box was intact, and none of the pieces were dinged or scratched. The instructions were pretty good. Other buyers noted the need to buy a rubber mallet for the finish pegs, but I just put the soft side of a scrubby sponge over it and used my regular hammer. Worked fine. I'd suggest tweaking the bolts one more time after standing bookcase upright. The finish is apparently sprayed on, and between some of the slats it was unevenly applied, so I touched it up so it wouldn't look cheap. Having a wider slat across the back of the shelves (especially along the bottom) would help hold small books better. On Overstock's part, I didn't know there were other finishes available until the day after ordering when a selection of them popped into my facebook feed. I'm happy with the bookcase. Would gladly suggest it to friends.

The color was a little lighter than I thought it would be. I was expecting a dark walnut/espresso and this is a warm walnut/cherry color. The construction is pretty solid. Definitely recommend having 2 people set it up. Had I paid that price, I would have felt like I got a bargain.

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.

This was a very contemporary bookcase, which is what I wanted. Unfortunately, I assumed expresso would be black and it looked more like cherry. I will be returning it and ordering something else.

I purchased this for extra storage in a bathroom. I wasn't looking for a high quality piece of furniture--I just needed something to store towel on. I liked the design of the bookcase and thought if the finish looked really cheap when it arrived that I would paint/distress it. I was really impressed when we opened up the box! Real wood, nice finish (I ordered the espresso which turned out to be more a very dark mahogany or cherry to me, which was fine). My husband put it together in about 20 minutes. No glitches. We were both impressed with the quality--although I originally bought it for a bathroom, I wouldn't hesitate to put it in any area of the house. Thank you Overstock!

I needed a place to put my piano music and this was perfect.. the spine sits so I can easily read the back of every book and it had just the right amount of room. The color is either black or a very deep expresso and it is perfect next to my black piano. It was easy to put together, is all wood. no particle board. I love this piece and the price was just ridiculous.

I was very disappointed in this product. It's spray painted wood and the tone is grey, not the rich espresso that is in the picture. It's a gunmetal wood tone. That is spray painted over a grey base. The bottom of each shelf is just the grey. No wood tone. Assembly was easy and the packing very secure. It's just not worth the $$$ that it cost when I purchased it from overstock in November 2014,
