Use this five-shelf gray tower for your books, sculptures, pictures, or any item you choose. It is constructed of wood and has a sturdy metal frame, so it can hold heavy and light items. Place it wherever you need more storage space....more
I used this tower in my bathroom with very tall ceilings and it looks great! I have several of the Elements collection tables (also from O.co) throughout my home and this piece fits right in although it has more of a "rustic" appearance. Metal is textured and slightly bumpy...solid as a rock. Might want a helper to hold the legs in place while setting on the shelves and lining up the next pole. It's large...so measure your doorway if assembling it in another room. Love it and will add to the collection soon. Thanks for another nice repsentation of the "reclaimed" look Overstock!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Far more sturdy and heavy duty than I expected.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfect. Finishes are very well represented
Very pleased overall; has the industrial look I was after. I was surprised to find that instead of four floor-to-ceiling rods supporting the shelves there are 20 individual poles-- which made for a very wonky and dubious assembly. Also, poor assembly instructions-- it should have been straightforward but I had to backtrack. Not important to me, but the caster wheels do not swivel. In the end, though, it looks great.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, but incomplete.
I bought this to go with a reclaimed wood and metal desk from a high end retailer. The shelves on this appear to be made out of a wood composite (like you would use on an outside deck) so on close inspection, you can tell it is not wood. However, because the shelves are so deep, you can place books facing to the front and then place some books on each side facing toward the sides (like a U of books). That means for the floor space, you can store a large number of books.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? OK
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solid
I saw a tower at al high end national retailer and wanted it, but was dissuaded by the price and the need to be at home for delivery and set up. This appears to be the exact same thing which I assembled myself in 20 minutes and was delivered without my being home. Much better price.

These shelves are very heavy. They look a little inexpensive. They are hard to keep in a straight line when putting together so mine are a bit wobbly. One of the boxes was previously opened and was partially put together.
I purchased the book case and two side tables for our guest room, and I also purchased two towers for our master. My husband assembled all of them this past weekend and, while they look good and seem to be sturdy (they are very heavy), they have a very strong odor to it. It smells like wet paint/spray paint. I'm hoping it will eventually go away but the odor can be very bothersome to sensitive noses. We are letting it "air out" in our living room before placing them in the rooms which are small and enclosed and will hold in the odor. The pictures of the products are accurate although I would not describe them as "grey" at all. The shelves have streaks of grey/silver which you cannot tell from the pictures but overall, the products are dark brown. We have dark brown wood floors, so the products match a lot with the floors which is why I was hoping there would be more grey to them. If these products did not have a strong odor, I would have given "quality" a 4/5 star.
These were easy to put together. Love the weathered grey wood. They are very sturdy and have substantial display and storage space. They are very industrial looking with no refinement at all, so be sure that is what you are after.
I would only recommend this if the box you receive is unopened, to try to insure that at least most of the parts will be there. I ordered this bookcase for my daughter's new house..she was thrilled to get it and began to assemble. She noted that the box had obviously been opened before she got it. first, the washers were missing which were necessary to begin the project ..I c ontacted Overstock and they were quick to respond to my email and offer to send out the washers. We received the part, began again and soon realized that the coasters which were supposed to be on the bottom of each leg were missing also. Same thing, they mailed the other missing parts quickly...again. just a pain to deal with what is supposed to be a new item that was obviously opened and robbed for parts.lt wasn't inspected at all, just grabbed and shipped out. This is happening more often than not lately ,
Is it possible to purchase this unit but with only 2 shelves and then the bottom shelf (3 shelves total) and not the top 3 shelves? The depth and width of this unit works well, but it's too tall and I prefer not to pay for the top shelves if I'm not going to use them. It's a bit over my budget at $***, so wondering if there's a way to get half of the materials at a lesser price?123mike312 on Feb 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, 123mike312. I'm sorry, but this manufacturer does not make a shorter version of this tower, and we are unable to sell pieces of it separately. One option you have to receive a discount is to type "coupon" in our search bar to see what coupons we currently have; that can help alleviate the cost for you. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 20, 2014
Iwanted to know how much can you put on the shelves, i want to put each shelf full of vinyls, and hardcover big books.maria433 on Jan 5, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello maria433, this is not weight tested but is a very sturdy shelf. Reviewers said that they have used a lot of heavy books on this and it has worked great. I think you would be just fine with your vinyls and books. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 11, 2014
Does it have to be assembled with wheels or is there a stationary option w/out them?mdguy1422 on Oct 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us mdguy1422. You would need to find a cap to go into section that takes the wheel since it is designed to have them. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 22, 2013

Can you please confirm the metal is grey and not brown/rust colored? I am very interested. Thank you!coop4444 on Sep 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question coop4444. Yes, the metal on the Renate Grey Tower is gray and the digital images we display have the most accurate color possible. However, due to differences in computer monitors, we cannot be responsible for variations in color between the actual product and your screen. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 18, 2013
Thank you for shopping with us minni5. You do not adjust the height; the legs go into each section, put a shelf on the legs and continue until the whole unit is together. I have a very similar product in a couple of rooms, great storage space. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 26, 2013
Since the bookshelf needs to be assembled is it possible to exclude a one (or two) shelf level(s) to make the bookshelf shorter???

One of the reviewers mentioned (thank you for that) that the shelves are a composite wood - does that mean plywood? I ask because plywood is strong but particle board (another composite wood) is not in the long run. Can someone please provide feedback along these lines? Appreciate your help.ladear on Jul 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is MDF (Medium-density fiberboard) with Birch veneer. Thin sheets of the Birch cover over the MDF composite board to give the look of a solid birch piece. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 9, 2012
