Got my order today....had just finished putting it together. Tiring, yes...but worth it though. Looks very good in my bedroom. I had espresso furniture in my bedroom right now and the coffee bean color fits pretty nicely with my furniture. Overall, a very good shopping experience. Wouldn't mind getting another one if ever needed.

The Espresso color is really nice and rich looking. The option of horizontal or vertical makes it very versatile.

I purchased this bookcase to go in my sons room and thought the color would match his nursery furniture perfectly. His furniture is a rustic cherry, and this bookcase looks to be the same in the picture. When it arrived we were very happy with how sturdy the bookcase is. It looks more expensive than what it was. The color does not match what is on the site though. The color is more like a dark brown espresso rather than cherry. If the color had matched I would be happier with it. It is already assembled though so I cant return it at this point.

Very modern looking shelf unit, relatively easy to assemble (one person, 1 hour). Very good quality, all pieces are well marked and line up perfectly with the hardware. Shelf color is very dark, almost black espresso, with real metal end pieces. Overall sturdy, I recommend putting heavy items on the bottom shelves for more stability. Purchased for my son's room & holds lots of books (regular hardcover novels fit on the shelves nicely); he can also display his entire collection of star trek and star wars models. I would purchase another!

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,

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.

I was very disappointed to open the box and see that the item was black and not grey. I guess they are calling "Expresso" black. Regardless, it's decent quality and it looks more expensive than it is, I'm just disappointed I have to spray paint it now.

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.

There are a lot of ladder-style bookcases for sale and I happened to choose this piece for the medium toned wood that would have matched the style of my existing furniture. When the item arrived, I was a bit disappointed because the finish is definitively darker than what is pictured. If you're familiar with an Espresso colored finish- that is what this product looks like in actuality. If the photo had been accurate, I never would have purchased because there are many other bookcases in that color that are more economical than this piece. Also, the wood is unfinished in the areas where the shelves join to the left and right tall supports. (It's left a very light maple color which contrasts sharply with the espresso finish.) If the drilled holes are not 100% correctly aligned and the shelf is a bit off, you can see the unfinished bits in the not-flush joints. All being said, the scale of this piece is nice; more substantial than a lot of the ladder-shelves you can find similar in style. It feels sturdy once assembled. If you don't mind a dark finish and can get a discount on the price, it would be worth it. I'd consider $XXX(incl. shipping) to be a fair retail price for this piece.

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!

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.

A very economical and stylish was to add storage and design to any space. Price was great. Easy to put together. Happy with the quality and construction thus far for the price (1 month in). The color is inaccurate. These are cherry colored. NOT expresso. Had I known thus I likely would have sought a different product. Luckily, the different wood tone fit fine in my space as the shelf is offset in a corner of the room.

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 ***.

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.

The piece feels pretty sturdy and looks nice, but the wood is darker than I expected. It's very close to espresso.

I love it, it's exactly what it looks like on the pic... It was fairly easy to put together myself. The color is a dark espresso as explained, and the hooks stand out nice from the color.. I also ordered the cubbie bench that goes with it and I am very happy with both items. It takes up an empty space I had no idea what to do with entering from the garage door. So I would definately recommend it.

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.

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.

Great for the price! Espresso color has a red tint to it!

Bought this bookcase to use with another that I had purchased , so I was very pleased that it was just as advertised. They matched perfectly and now I have a library in my unused little bedroom. My husband thought it was pretty easy to put together. Thanks
