The material of these shelves is laminate and I wasn't expecting them to look of such poor quality. They won't mix well in a room with wood or a lot of neutral colors - but if your decor is black they'd do fine. The shape is cool, but I simply didn't end up using them.
These arrived a couple days earlier than the estimated delivery date, so I was happy to start. The directions that come with this is easy to follow and the pieces were easy to put together. I will be getting another pair for a different room Pros: Great color easy to put together
I can't give these pieces a fair review, because I have not yet hung them. The color turned out to be too dark a wood for where I intended to use them. But the design is lovely and spacious with a very sturdy design once put together. I decided to give them to my daughter; they better fit her decor. They must have worked for her.
These shelves are pretty cheap (price) and that is reflected in their construction. They weren't too difficult to put together and get hung with a few tools. They will serve their purpose, but I doubt they will last too very long since they are covered in the black plastic material (it isn't painted).
