    A well made and easy product to assemble. It is pressed particle board, but sturdy without being cumbersome. My one issue was with the coverup stickers to cover the bolt holes; said stickers had poor adhesive qualities and many of them disappeared quickly resulting in the exposure of the holes. That can probably be fixed with some additional adhesive, though I wish I'd know that sooner!

  • Exactly what I was looking for!
    Verified Purchase

    I had been looking for a BLACK cube like storage shelf for my daughter's room. Most things are black/brown or espresso and just wouldn't work. This fits her little canvas bins perfectly and has tall enough spaces for her barbie closets and other large toys. We have it set up horizontally in her room so that we can use the top for additional items-right now it holds books with book ends. The only down side is when I did the top, there was one area that wouldn't tighten to become flush, but it's not a problem. I just wish I could figure it out so that there's not a gap!

  • great bookcase

    We ordered 3 units and they went together very easily. We do recommend that you place all pieces out and identify all parts first and just do a bit of brainstorming - as with all flat pack items. Overall, we love them. Even coloring, all three matched perfectly with each other. I wish they have other colors than black because I would have mix and match it for my living room.

    I bought two of these shelf units for my son's room. Assembly was easy and took about 1.5 hrs for each. They are packed really well, deigned really well and sturdy. I'm very happy with this purchase. The color is black and true to the picture on the site.

  • Just a bit different
    Verified Purchase

    I bought 2 of these - one to be used vertically and the other horizontally on a bare wall in my music room - wanted something with a narrow profile and a little more interesting than your standard bookcase - this was just what I was looking for - put both together in an aftternoon - lots of space for books and display items without being boring. Wood grain color is little fake looking up close, but at a distance they look great!

  • Square the rounds
    Verified Purchase

    A very good quality product. Well designed, well engineered as far as the materials and fasteners, and easy to put together. The 1st one took us about 2 hours, but the second only an hour. One complaint/ suggestion for improvement relates to those dumb round stickers that are supposed to cover fastener holes...TOO Small ... Make them a 1/4" larger diameter OR make them square so that at least the corners can be used to position them over (not in) the holes. Square dots over round holes....what a concept. Like the product very much.

  • Sturdy, tall, and awesome.
    Verified Purchase

    We needed a good book shelf, went through 3 or 4, and none of those were sturdy enough for two kids! So we figured "might as well pay a little more" with hopes that the saying "you get what you pay for" was accurate. And we were right. This book shelf is amazing. Its so big, and holds all my books PLUS it displays pictures really well. ONLY thing we didnt like was that if put against a wall, the top kinda angles out. We had to screw in a L bracket to get it to stand up right against the wall. BUT that's ok, seeing as we have kids, we need a little safety support.

  • Q:

    "Can you stack these horizontally for a full wall shelving look?"

    • A:

      Hello bobbdev, you should not have any issues stacking these horizontally. The shelves help create a good support system for the additional weight. There is a little bit of a lip on the top and bottom you might want to be careful of though. I would also recommend securing them together and to the wall. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • Q:

    "Can this bookshelf hold the weight of a 50" tv?"

  • Q:

    "It appears that some of the cubby holes do not have a back. Do any of them have a back? I would think that it would make it more sturdy if there was a back board on them. Thank you"

    • A:

      Hi eviemaurer, this display shelf does not come with a backing for an aesthetically pleasing look. A backing may support the unit more but that is not the point of this display shelf. Thanks for shopping with us.

    • A:

      The cubby holes (large one) is approximately 13 inches H X 14.5 inches wide X 12 inches deep. Take a look at item number #12280098 or SKU 14188127 which should be compatible with the dimensions. Note: there are several shelves that have three cubby holes instead of two, so you make not be able to find baskets for the smaller as that width would only be about 7 inches wide.
