This is a flimsy piece of "furniture". The materials used are cheap and definately unsatisfactory. The idea was very cleaver and it would have been great if it were made of materials that would last. I would not buy this again had I have seen it up close.
This product is exactly what I wanted for my kitchen, but I was very disapointed in the workmanship. It is very lightweight/flemsy. It is not sturdy enough to hold more than 5 or 6 magazines. It looks good, but I am afraid it is not going to last very long. It was a bit pricey for the workmanship and materials used.
I bought these magazine rack to decorate my fiance's house. Got lots of compliment from guests when we had our housewarming party. These magazine racks are very affordable and unique. They matched completely with our living room decoration. Love it and would recommend these.
I am loving this magazine rack. My co-workers have remarked that it is a "very impressive display." I work as a health educator and have lots of informational brochures and booklets that I give to my patients and now I have the perfect organizer for them. The only thing I didn't like was how it was packaged when it was sent to me. The box was full of popcorn pellets that I had to throw away. There were so many, I filled an entire trash bag with them. Not only is this impractical, but very wasteful. There has to be a better way to keep the item safe from damage in the shipping process.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fits all the display items I am using to give to my patients. It is durable without looking industrial.
- How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate. It fits the location I intended to put it exactly.
This item is very overpriced for what you get. We finally got it glued together. It is supposed to fold up. It won't fold with all the glue on it. It is not at all as good as it looks in the photos. That said, once it is set up it holds a good number of magazines very neatly.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? questionable... not attractive in person
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. bad... wouldn't stay together at all. I have had this for almost a year. I finally got help to try to glue it together. With help ... frustrating. Very flimsy wood pieces. My husband hates it.
I read the previous reviews of this product so I wasn't surprised to find that it wasn't terribly sturdy ( although I believe that is part of the design and to be expected). It looks nice and is a unique item and will serve it's purpose well. You pull it out of the box, pull the legs apart and it is ready to be filled with magazines.
I hid this from him until we finished his home office......then I thought I would wait until we finished the adjoining bathroom, and I finally couldn't stand to wait any longer, so I brought out the box and he was absolutely thrilled with it. He has already filled it with his magazines related to his profession....I am so happy I ordered again from Overstock. The color was just exactly as shown and the quality is excellent....I even tried to sneak in a magazine of my own.....he said no, this is for me! lol
I ordered 4 of these. Only 1 came in the dark color I wanted, the other 3 are very light, I do not like. Not consistent in color. I use these for display and needed 4 dark, oh well. The width of the fiber at the top is inconsistent. Two of these are wide to the frame, which is the way they should be, the other two are not, too narrow.
