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.
