Love these shelves. They finish off my living room. I wasn't sure when I ordered the first one so I waited until ordering a second one. Easy to put together and the brown bisque color matches the reclaimed wood mantle on my fireplace. Using a drill for assembly made them easy to put together.
We needed a specific size in the space and these fit the bill perfectly. The wood was the right color, they are sturdy and have just the right balance of looking industrial and modern for the "northwest contemporary" look we were going for.
I bought two of these after deciding mainly on the basis of size and price. There are so many similar products available, you can be pickier than I was. One of the pieces went together well. The other tips forward quite a bit and will need to be fixed with something more substantial than a matchbook. the awful smell (probably a pesticide needed to import from China) is dissipating. The mismatched warped boards don't really matter since they will be covered with books or objects. Bottom line, not quality furniture but a very easy purchase.
