Delighted with this cabinet! It is quite attractive and is handsome with my traditional mahogany/cherry furniture, which is in an adjacent, more formal room. Having moved to a smaller home, I needed an additional small chest to accommodate some dishes/linen tableware items. This is a handsome piece and perfect for my need. ! It was shipped quickly.. Most definitely, I would recommend!!!!
The book case was reasonably priced although, as others have noted, it is more red than mahogany and it does not have a "top," so the item looks a bit unfinished. However, the shelves as wood and "work" where I intended them to work. The shelves are quite heavy--also a plus. The first delivery of the shelves was damaged. The leg on one side of the bookcase was broken. Overstock Customer Service, as usual, was helpful and immediately arranged to have a new folding bookcase sent out. A bigger issue is that I was told to hang on to the damaged bookcase and then dispose of it after ten days--in case *** wanted to inspect the damage. *** did not come, but disposal was major for me. I am a 68 year old disabled woman who had to drag the heavy book shelves about a block to my apartment dumpster to dispose of the shelves. Ouch.
My husband was thoroughly impressed with how easily this bookcase opened up and was ready for use. I wish I would have chosen the mahogany color, but the oak shade is fine, as we have lots of different colors of wood furniture. Great price for nice bookcase!!
Ordered a set of these ladder shelves and they arrived within a few days, packed very well, no damage to any of the pieces, used up all the hardware (does not come with spare parts), and the directions recommended for two people to assemble the shelves, however, I am pleased to say I put them together by myself (female). :-) They were set up within a couple of hours, the color is a rich dark cherry/mahogany, they hold my books and photos in my office. I did put bumpers on the upper back rails to keep the shelves from hitting the wall. I give this purchase a double thumbs up!
