I purchased this rustic bookcase as decorative pot and dish holder to display in my dining area and I and everyone who sees it loves it! Assembling it was extremely easy...didn't need the husbands' help at all! I would definitely buy a larger piece by the same maker. Highly recommend!!!
Was able to assemble this myself, looks great with one focal piece per shelf. No durability or stability issues other than how it sits on the carpet, but it can be mounted to the wall if needed. Mine hosts a record player, basket of records, pictures, and a few wooden boxes. I love the visibility the open-back creates. Frees up a lot of space in the room.
Industrial rustic and chic while still being HIGH END quality. My husband put this together rather quickly and didn't seem to have any trouble, the wood is a nice warm color and feels finished and durable. The metal does not seem like it will chip or rust but of course only time will tell. I would definitely recommend the bookcase.
I own a number of pricey pieces from a store that rhymes with Hestoration Rardware. But I honestly don't care where my stuff comes from as long as it looks well constructed and quality. This shelf looks perfect amongst my far more expensive pieces--and garners many compliments and questions from guests about where it came from. I've had it about a year and it has proven a quality piece. It was easy to put together and a total deal. Love it.
I bought this item to match with 40 inch bookcase and even though I bought them a year apart the are identical colors and styles. Only difference is this piece is about an inch taller than the 40 inch one, but I have them spread apart in the room overall very satisfied, well built and sturdy.
I bought this bookshelf along with other matching pieces for my daughter. It's sturdy, beautiful, really good quality and affordable. I love the industrial look of the wood with the black metal. This is nice, clean line furniture, not bulky at all. This is great furniture for someone just starting out in their first place, or retirees. It's timeless and lends itself to different styles of decorating. You won't be disappointed, it's even nicer in person that the pictures convey.
