I ordered 3 bookshelves to sit side by side in our living room and they look great - exactly what I was looking for.
It should be noted that the wood shelves are planked and scraped, giving a rustic look. The finish is smooth and can be dusted easily. A couple of shelves were not as perfect as the others, but overall the quality is good for the price. I am happy with my purchase and with my experience shopping at Overstock.com.

Great shelving! Easy to put together however EXTREME caution is needed when handling the shelves. There are notches cut into each corner of each shelf that fit into the metal "legs". I broke each piece off simply by picking up the shelves and trying to put into place. As always, Overstock customer service was wonderful and sent replacements within the week.

I shopped and shopped online and off for an affordable industrial book shelf and I was not disappointed. This product arrived and was exactly as depicted in the write up. Well packaged, no breakages, easy assembly. I love the rustic, industrial feel of the product. The only caution, beware the styrofoam padding cause you will have little static styro balls everywhere - assemble in the garage!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? powder coated dark metal, wood is stained a dark reddish hue
If you've seen the catalog that begins with a B and ends with d's this is very similar to the tower they show for $369. but that one has two more shelves and the quality of the components is likely to be better. For my purposes this is perfect; it suffices in form and function. I put it together myself in minutes, easily.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was true but the shelves (wood) looks pieced if you look closely--however it's not an issue when you see the unit put together
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good enough to be sturdy and attractive / functional
Like all the other buyers of this product, we wanted to buy a bookshelf with industrial look and found other stored to be very expensive. We took chance on this product and found it to be good looking, stable and it serves the purpose. The entire package was very lightweight which made me concerned about stability of the shelf but surprisingly it is very stable and does not move at all esp with tons of books that we keep on it. Only 2 small problems. One, it smelled really bad initially for a day or two but after that the smell completely went away. Two, there are no pre-drilled holes for the screws either in the bottom or top shelf but I was able to screw in with ease though needed wife to hold the shelves in place while I was doing that.

I bought two shelves for my den. The metal color was not really what I expected. It was a black color and I thought in the picture it looked more like metal/silver color. The wood is nice though, it looks distressed and is a good color. Overall I kept the shelves because they work for what I need and were a good price, but I think there are other shelves out there that are probably more higher end looking. I needed this size, which is really nice. They were pretty easy to assemble and were delivered very quickly.
Great looking bookcase! It's exactly what we were looking for but for much less than other high-end stores. The colors are just as pictured and the quality is great. We purchased two of them and placed them in our family room. We love them!
On the pro side this bookshelf is good looking, stylish, and sturdy enough for what I want to use it for. On the down side, it did have a funny smell (which went away) right after unpacking; while I think it's strong enough to hold up indefinitely for decorative use, it does wobble a bit even when even when everything is tightened.
I love the look of the shelf - it has a very stylish and modern look, but does not look out of place in my very old and traditional home. It works with a lot of decors and is useful for tying together other modern and traditional pieces of furniture. If you get really close and inspect the parts you do start to realize that the quality is not as good as it seems from afar, so in my opinion this piece is best used in areas that aren't necessarily the focal point of the room. That being said the quality is still pretty good and sturdy, so it will work in any room.
Assembly took 15 minutes without any help. I use it to hold some plants and some small sculptures; the size and quality is just perfect for that.
When I unpacked it there was a weird off-gass smell that I didn't like at all. The smell faded in an hour or so, but it makes me wonder what kinds of chemicals might have been used in treating the wood. I'm not very sensitive to those kinds of things, but if you are, it's something to consider.
The individual pieces are all strong and look durable, but for some reason the fit and finish is such that there is still some wobble when you put it together. It's not enough that it detracts from the usefulness or beauty of the piece, but it is there. If you're using this for purely decorative use (which I imagine most buyers are) the quality is more than enough. If for some reason you envision this as a heavy-use kind of thing you might consider looking elsewhere.
Overall I love it!
What tools will be required for assembling? I am putting this together in a commercial setting and will need to bring the appropriate tools prior to having access to the assembly instructions.sweetgreen on Jun 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Hi mattyice, this could hold vinyl records. We do not recommend exceeding 25 pounds on each shelf for safety and stability. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 30, 2013
yes, I believe it would. We have books, framed photos, and knick knacks on ours and it is fine.ccb1950 on Feb 11, 2014
Could the shelves be painted? I assume each individual shelve could be removed.alspring on Nov 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi alspring, the shelves can be painted. We recommend doing so prior to assembly for best results. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 30, 2013
The top shelf is permanent, but all others are removable. I don't know any reason why they could not be painted.ccb1950 on Feb 11, 2014

I just received the bookcase and i love it however the instructions are vague. Am i supposed to use a drill to attach the top and bottom shelves etc? There are no holes in the board which is why i assume drill however the picture on the instructions just show a phillips head.crcurlee on Oct 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
