After reading reviews and shopping for stacking/folding shelves all over the net, I found best pricing for size from The O. I was shopping to match my mohagany coffee table and wooded feet of various chairs. THIS IS NOT "MAHAGANY", it is more like REDWOOD, nowhere even NEAR what mahagany should be; definitely a deeper redwood. I ordered two of them to stack and I only ened-up keeping them because the theme of my apartment is lots of deep reds/burgandy/black and aquas, and they are deep enough color to atually compliment everything else. Someone else may feel let-down if expecting truely rich mahogany. These seem well-made and are solid, even when stacked on carpeting, and were very well packed with no damage at all. This ened-up being one of those "happy accidentals" in life and love how easy they were to set-up. It literally took me 10x more time upackaging them. The "O" had a 7% discount I used on order and am very pleased with them.

The hinges were poorly attached making the product somewhat shaky. These are not as sturdy as the ones that I still have from 15 years ago. They are also smaller. On the plus side they don't require any work. Just unpack, open up, and you're ready to go. Also light enough for a woman to carry. Side bars are a good thing too.

I have owned two sets (stacked, pine finish) for over 19 years and they've held up well, through my college years and into my kids' youth. I ordered two more sets for my other son to stack in his room. I was skeptical based on poor quality reviews I found here (and other web sites) but trusted my instincts based on my 19-year ownership and I'm glad I was right.
The walnut finish was nice and even, the hardware lined up (for folding the shelves down), and I’m pleased to find out that the units now come with wood plugs to cover the screw holes. Nice touch. I had slight difficulty when stacking the units for the first time, as though the holes were blocked with varnish, but once I pushed them together (hard) they were fine from then out.
Products were shipped in boxes not much bigger than the shelves themselves nestled in formed styrofoam. There wasn’t any box damage done in shipping but I was nervous as to the condition of the shelves (I also bought 2 sets of the 14” wide ones, they were packed/shipped the same way), but all four sets were fine and not damaged. They shipped pretty quick, too.
These are fantastic shelves that will last a long, long time. They’ve held everything over the years (the 19-year-old ones) from folded clothing, trophies, toys, displays, books, stereos (that just dated me, didn’t it?), and much more. The 14” wide ones are great to sneak in extra organization in small closets. I would highly recommend these shelves from Overstock.com
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate sizing

I am so happy with these bookshelves. I bought two because they said they were stackable. I replaced a plastic toybox with these shelves in the same amount of space. The shelves hold so much more and look so much better. Took them out of the box unfolded them and stacked them couln't have been easier! Great quality too!!!
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Awesome quality! Did not have to put together!
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Excellent Condition!
I ordered 2 of these to stack. They arrived promptly and were a snap to set up. They are sturdy and will hold all I need them to. I like 2 things particularly: 1) ease of setup and 2) they are made of hardwood and not pressboard so they will stand up to years of use. Did I mention they are very attractive?
Already have several of these bookshelves and have had years of reliable use from them. So I was very happy when I saw these on Overstock at a very good price. This book shelf is so easy to put up and stack, quite handsome and sturdy.
The bookcase color I ordered was SO NOT the Mahogany color I was expecting or pictured. I had wanted it to match other pieces I have in my living room & it was so far off in what I know Mahogany color to be. I did keep the bookcase as I needed one badly. I was unable to use it in the room I had planned it to be in so used it in another room.
The quality of the bookcase I thought was good & I rec'd the shipment in a timely manner.
Just very disappointed in the wood color.
How accurate was the sizing? Very
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The bookcase itself was well constructed & very easdy to set-up.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I felt the color for the Mahogany bookcase I ordered was terrible more orange tone then a deep rich reddish/brown. All my other wood pieces in my home are either cherry or mahogany so I know it was not a good color I had rec'd.
I realize these are stackable, but if you do not want to stack them, is there a shelf which will fit over the top so it will look finished? on Aug 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
