Recently moved and needed new bookshelving. We happened to get a giftcard as a housewarming, and happened upon these gorgeous bookshelves. We needed something that was not going to overwhelm a smaller space, and while these are sturdy bookshelves, you can see the wall decor through them that lends to the overall spaciousness of your place. I bought two..and eventually will have to buy several more. I would really reccommend highly.
