The design is incredible, very artistic and very strudy quality. It took a little over an hour to assemble but it was easy, step by step instructions really helped a lot. I can fit lots of my books and it's very strong I highly recommend it. it's nice and stylish.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I purchased brown, I received just that
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good sturdy bookcase, good quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? so true
I researched this product on other sites and was thrilled when I saw it for a lot less on here. It arrived just a few days later and even though the directions to put the unit together were slightly confusing I had it put together in 45 minutes. It looks beautiful in my living room and I love the open shelves with the smaller cubby holes are closed. If you are planning to use this as a room divider (as I have) I highly recommend using it in a room where you will mostly be sitting in. It is not very high but, from a lower seating area it looks like it was made for the room.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfectly, it said black and it was.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Its very nice, looks more expensive then it actually was.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very Accurate
My bookcase arrived so early that it surprised me. I order a lot of my stuff online and this was the fastest to ever get to me, and I think this my favorite item that I even bought online. The price was surprisingly good, and the quality is good! It took longer than an hour to set up but it wasn't hard at all, pretty easy. I like the way it's designed, so nice and different. It's also very sturdy and it looks great in the house.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? very good quality
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
I like it because the style is great and the quality is more that what I bought it for. Easy to assemble, and if you look at it, the first thing you think about is the assemble, but no worries this was easy to assemble. if you want a unique style bookcase that has great quality, this is it. I looked everywhere and this is one of the great ones. I get so much compliments, and it makes me feel even better knowing that I bought something of good qualtiy for less price.
A little time consuming to put together and definitely has to be attached to the wall but very modern and love the style. If you are not a DIY person the directions are not very detailed. Shipped quickly no damage!
We purchased this tiered bookcase as a way to store miscellaneous items and electronics such as our 55" inch TV on the top tier of the shelf, our video game console, games and as well various novels and visual references books, coffee table books. Despite our ample usage, the design and the silhouette of this bookcase still holds on its own and I love it. It serves very well in function as well as in aesthetics beautifully. I was actually worried about it being wobbly, but if carefully and securely assembled, its structurally sound and very stable as well, which is always a plus, and I appreciated the timely transit of this item. Thank you, Overstock.
These (we bought two) are perfect. We bought them to flank our very large, flat screen TV and they are perfect. My husband spent a little while putting the first one together but the second took only half the time. They look both modern and retro - just what we were looking for. Price was great too! We found something similar, but not as nice, in a shop for twice the price!
I recommend this with qualifications: I tried to assemble it myself without help - mistake. The directions are quirky, pieces heavy. In the end it was wobbly and I think I did it wrong; ended up damaging it in the process. It's not great quality but I did not expect that given what I paid. I gave it to a friend for his basement. So, if you don't need quality and are a furniture-assembly expert, go for it. It's a nice design.
Oh boy! I have successfully assembled other flat box furniture. This was like night and day! In the end my son with a PHD in mechanical engineering whipped it together. I guess I fell for the design of the bookcase. It is of course modern. I also like the color of the book case. Enough said.

The color on the pictures calls it Black Oak. The color in the picture itself actually looks like a very deep brown tone. I really like the color that is in the picture. Can you tell me if the Black Oak is the color that is displayed in the picture? I would like to order but would be disappointed if the bookshelf showed up and was more of a true black versus what I can see in the picture. Thanks for your help.myname999 on Jul 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, myname999. Hope your day is going well. The black oak is the color displayed in the picture and is not a true black; it may appear very dark but is still lighter than a true black. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

I bought this bookcase about a year ago, unless they changed the colors it is black. it is not wood but has a woodlike texture that is not objectionable.mbnaples on Jul 11, 2013
There is another display case you have that is VERY similar, it's a little taller and a little wider. It is constructed of "hollow core wood". What is the difference between this and condensed wood? Is one a better quality? One costs a little more but would consider if quality is better.weez19 on Jun 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello weez19, hollow core is engineered to be stronger and lighter. It may be considered a little better quality. I hope this helps you. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 1, 2013
Thanks for the height. I asked for the width as well. Will someone please read the question below to ensure the correct shelves are checked for the defined dimensions? I've asked in different ways since April 30th. If my questions are still not clear enough, please tell me what I need to say!thepersonalshopper on May 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
thank you much btmama.. since I've had so much trouble with this... would it be inconvenient to measure the depth and height?thepersonalshopper on May 27, 2013
The depth is 12 inches on each shelf. The height of the large shelves are 9 3/4" the height of the small are 5 1/4". That is the inside dimensions of the shelves. I am sending an email asking what the height of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd large shelfs are from the floor. Also what the inside width is of each shelf. I'm sorry you had to ask so many questions.
I will get back to you soon.
Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on May 28, 2013
I received a sheet that has most of the dimensions on it. I am having customer care email it to you. I am still trying to get the height of each shelf for you and will let you know asap.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on May 29, 2013

Hello, This is a repeat of an original question. I still need to know the height, width and depth of the 2nd and 4th shelves... EACH shelf across. I don't know how to ask this any easier. :)
Sorry I'm confused about the height of the shelves. Someone previously asked and was given the top shelf, second shelf, and cubbies. The second and forth shelves appear a lot lower in comparison to the others, Will someone please confirm the inside dimensions of each shelf? Height and width?

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibres, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and much denser than particle board.
The name derives from the distinction in densities of fibreboard. Large-scale production of MDF began in the 1980s, in both North America and Europe.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 25, 2013
