This bookshelf was easy to put together, is very sturdy and made well. It weighs about 60-70 pounds, so will need help lifting it up after being built, and is such larger then I expected it to be which I do not mind. I am glad it is because all my books just made it on the bookshelf. Love the modern look and color to it. Great bookshelf for the price.
THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THINKS TO OVER STOCK .COM EXCELLENT! SUPERB! MAGNIFICENT! AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT IN MY RANGE.I JUST LOVE IT! THE COLOR, THE WHOLE DESIGN JUST BLEW ME AWAY. NO OTHER COMPANY COULDN'T DID NO BETTER.THANKS OVERSTOCK .COM ! MRS.S*** LOVE,PEACE,& BLESSINGS
I've only had this set of shelves up for about 4 days and I love seeing it every time I pass thru the living room. 2 person job to put together and get moved, but even without directions it took maybe 20 minutes to put together (with a motorized drill, not the Allen wrench that comes with it). Color (I got the brown) is great, kind of distressed looking, metal part is a dark brown/oiled bronze. Very stable, sturdy, heavy piece. The one at **** looks almost identical for double the price of this one! Very happy with this purchase!
Easily put together by one person with only rudimentary plan reading skills and "erector set" building experience. Made of manufactured wood products and it looks it but the quality of the cut makes it presentable. It's heft requires two people to mount on the wall; be sure to find a wall stud into which to anchor it.
These shelves are great, I ordered several sets for my living room. It says not to use a drill, but we did anyway in order to get the anchors in the wall. The installation instructions aren't very good but it doesn't take a genius to figure out how to install the shelves. They're stable and look good.
This TV stand arrived via UPS, and the box was in BAD shape; obviously mishandled in transit. It had an orange label on EVERY side that indicated it was to be lifted be TWO people, but there was only one delivery driver, who didn't even use a dolly, and then tried to get away before I saw he was here. I asked him what to do if the mdse was damaged. He just yelled out to go to UPS.com to file a complaint, and drove of. I was afraid to upon the box, but my husband did so for me (he has better luck) and thank goodness, the pieces were all fine. Styrofoam was crushed and broken, but not the furniture pieces. Now that it is assembled and set up, I love it! It is just as pictured and blends in perfectly with the mis-matched pieces I already have. I would recommend this product, but be sure to inspect it and be ready to file a complaint i it comes damaged! UPS has been VERY rough on items I've received lately, so I was "on guard!"
These shelves are wonderful! I bought two of them! They came on time, and I had them put together in 20 minutes! The instructions are pictures so anyone can put them together with ease! I get lots of compliments on them!
I got two of the gray colored shelves. They are well made ~ nice and solid ~ and make quite a statement with their large size. Open the box outside or in the garage when you put them together, unless you want your house to look like it snowed. The packaging material gets everywhere!! I think it took longer to unpack and clean up the mess than it did to actually put them together. Totally worth it, though... they are great. :)
I was looking for a bookcase that would not be clunky but could be placed horizontally and hold TONS of books in an interesting way. (I'm an English professor and avid reader, but I wanted my book display to have more of an aesthetic appeal.) This piece is perfect! It's sturdy and spacious. The various sized shelf areas are perfect for housing a variety of books - from large textbooks and reference pieces to small paperback novels. The shelving pieces are interesting but have a bit of symmetry, so once filled it doesn't look cluttered and jumbled. I like this piece for its ability to easily be used vertically or horizontally depending on the room it is in. (Right now I have it on an office wall with a collection of travel art above it which looks funky and interesting.) My only complaint is that two of the stickers (a number and China's quality inspection) were difficult to take off the exterior side of one of the pieces; I was unable to remove some of the adhesive, so I placed that side of the bookcase toward the corner. I'm definitely pleased with my purchase overall, and my more traditional boyfriend was also pleasantly surprised with how well it came together.
This is my 2nd purchase of the same bookcase. I wanted two. The 2nd purchase came with both side panels cracked; but replacement of the pieces was simple enough. Customer representative was helpful and efficient. I did not have to wait long for the replacement pieces to arrive. The bookcase looks really nice and can be easily incorporated into any room. I purchased them for my library and it made the room look organized. There's enough shelf space (depending on how you arrange the height of the shelves) for a good size amount of books. I had a lot of books and they all fit.
This 3 shelf unit is as good looking at pictured and described. I was intimidated at first with the assembly but I took a minute to look at the instructions and really common sense just by looking at it you can easily figure it out. I did not need help and it took me about an hour (with some interruptions). NOTE: when the shelf unit was empty just assembled and placed in a carpeted room I had doubts about its sturdiness specially that I wanted to place a heavy TV on it. But once filled with books, the weight made it all very sturdy and the TV was placed on top with no concerns. It is very functional, pretty, and great price. I may get a second one to place along the wall.
There arent a whole lot of options when it comes to this style of bookshelf/room divider. You can order something made of real wood and pay 5x the price or you can order this.
Just so you are aware this product is made of MDF its similar in assembly procedure to most MDF furniture made by other brands such as Sauder, ClosetMaid, and the like. On the upside the MDF thickness of the shelves itself is far beyond anything Ive ever seen at a retail outlet such as Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc. One support is made of thin MDF which is about the same as your standard MDF furniture you can get at those locations but it is the small support.
The product shipped quickly, and arrived at my home with minimal damage. There was a bit of a scuff on a few pieces, and one dent. But I assembled the product in a way where those would not be visible.
The instructions werent all that great, but if youve ever assembled this type of furniture before you really shouldnt need them.
I took my time assembling the shelves, and made sure to use some gorilla glue in the dowel locations (buy separately) because of other reviews that mentioned the shelves were unstable. The assembly procedure involved using a phillips screw driver to install the hardware by hand and then I tightened it via cordless electric screw driver to a torque of about 9. This resulted in a pretty darn stable bookshelf. There was no wobbling, and moving it by myself didnt cause things to crack or break like other reviewers have mentioned.
On the downside of things the bookshelf laminate looks like it was poorly done. The laminate is actually visible on the corners where 2 pieces of laminate meet and it looks like it will age poorly. Additionally the hardware I received was missing a couple of pieces. And Im not a fan of how poorly the actual chrome bars between the shelves attached it was far too loose for my liking.
For the price I think this shelf offers style & stability. For some additional cash like money for Gorilla Glue, white touch up paint (to fix any blemishes), and some wood epoxy (to tighten up the fit for the chrome bars) which shouldnt run you more than $15 you can have a pretty nice looking/sturdy shelf. If you want to go the extra mile you could spend a little more for some good paint and youd have something that looks and functions as good as the bookshelf that costs 5x more.
Bookcase is everything I expected for the price. Compressed, laminated wood from Canada is extremely heavy. Does not take to long to screw the pieces together. The back board needs to be ' tacked' in place. After sixty plus nails I felt like a shoe maker. Convenient size to tuck in a small corner of the kitchen area for
books, nic-nacs and whatever. Alignment of pieces is acceptable.
This bookcase was just what I was looking for to complete my home office. It is not overwhelming in size and fit my wall perfectly. The quality was amazing and the price was reasonable. One of the best features was the little notched out area on the back of the bookcase so it could fit up tight on the wall and the notch fit around the floor molding.
I bought this in maple and cream and it is beyond stunning! My wife actually received it while I was away on a business trip, so here are her comments.
As far as assembly, yes, it does take awhile but we're not talking some RTA piece of furniture from a big box store. This is a REAL piece of furniture. Here are some things you may want to be aware of before purchasing. The unit is delivered in three boxes, the smaller one (40 pounds) is the glass. The two larger boxes are about 70 pounds, so just know that you'll want to move them to the area you will be assembling the unit. I went through the instructions a couple of times before I started to familiarize myself with what had to be done. DON't start without having your tools assembled. Why make it frustrating, just have screw drivers, hammer, a drill and you're good to go. Take your time. You'll totally love this media unit when it's assembled, so enjoy creating it. If you want something you can throw together in an hour, go back to the box store. As a 60 year old, petite person, I was able to assemble the entire unit without any help. I didn't rush and it took me 6 hours, over two afternoons. We have a 65" TV on it and we will be up-sizing to an 80" as the unit can easily hold it. When the lights are on at the base in the evening, the unit glows. It seriously looks like we spent a couple thousand on this...so very, very happy with it.
Could not be more pleased with the look and quality and relative ease of assembly. Thanks to previous reviewers, I bought furniture online for first time. Securely packaged, hardware lines up with holes...I added caps to cover the screws and would recommend doing that for a more finished look.
I bought the white version. Once I got the shelf assembled, it's perfect in the corner of my craft room. Pay close attention to the long pieces and which way they should face. Those pieces aren't labeled. I assembled the whole thing backwards at first so assembly took me about 2 hrs instead of 1. Otherwise, I would recommend buying this bookshelf!
Let's see - I needed a smaller profile wooden bookcase to fit an odd area between my desk and wall. Here's the perfect bookcase - it's made of solid, heavy wood, there's no assembly required, it's packaged perfectly, it looks super stylish, it holds plenty of tall oversize books, the price is right and it's the perfect size. The search is over - What are you waiting for?
These shelves are great looking, super well made, sturdy, and less money than you'd expect for this quality. I compare them to Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. Quality is similar, price is much better. I got the grey and it is so on trend right now. I was trying to match up to an old cabinet that I have in the room that has antiqued, punched pewter tin panels in it and this is a great match. I am using these in a craft studio to stylishly hold fabrics and other supplies. These are tall, long and will hold a lot, and I don't have to worry about the shelves collapsing, like with other, cheaper shelving units. I looked everywhere for just the right shelves, and know that you get what you pay for, so I waited for a good sale coupon and went for it. Shipping was free, and the delivery company was perfect...on time, polite, and efficient. I highly recommend!
I ordered 4 of these bookshelves for my library.
Assembly was easy enough for me to handle by myself.
The striped back panel looks great and is screwed on as opposed to tacked on, which is time consuming, but well worth the extra effort.
Tip: if you're putting more than one of these bookshelves next to one another, reverse the placement of the long narrow face panel on the inside bookshelves to outward as opposed to all inward.
BIG difference in the appearance of multiple bookshelves together.
Transformed my room completely!
The picture does not do justice to this media cabinet. It looks like much more expensive furniture. The different shelf configurations provide ample storage for many CDs and DVDs. Its length and depth allowed us to put two side by side in our hallway without taking much space. The assembly on the first cabinet was challenging; the second cabinet took very little time. All in all, a very nice piece of furniture and a good bargain, too. We highly recommend it.
Good quality for the price range, and easy assembly. They look great. Note: the bottom of the drawer is only 2-3 inches from the ground, so if you're planning to put it against a wall with a baseboard, it likely won't actually sit flush to the wall.
Easy to assemble. Pieces came out of box as needed and they were labeled. My hubby put this together with his drill in a matter of 20 minutes- maybe half hour tops. It looks beautiful in the corner of our bathroom. Glass does not fog up and adds a sophisticated touch. Knob pulls are nice. There was a rough board but it's inside the cabinet so no big deal. Shelves are adjustable and you can raise or lower them to accomodate your items. Overall a good buy and looks great as an addition to our bathroom. Now I have a place for extra towels and a shelf to hide clutter.
The cabinet is sturdy and looks really nice especially for the price. It is pretty dark, and doesn't have any red tones---so not sure why that is in the name. Nontheless, it look nice and was very easy to put togther (just very repetitive). Tip....use a electric scredriver becauase there are lots of screws in this bad boy). For the most part, the cabinet looks of better quality (more expensive) than it is, however there is one tell-tell flaw that gives it away up close and that is the faux finish "stickers" that you are to put over the NUMEROUS screw holes that are each about the size of a dime. These stickers are easy to spot in the light and on the outer sides of the cabinet. They wil not go unoticed to anyone who lingers long enough to look at what your have displayed. In this respect Ikea has got this piece beat. Overall though I would say its a good deal for the money and is a substantial addition for a less substantial price.
This is a cute, decorative table. It is not a true teal color but still a very nice deep shade. This is a light table so you should not purchase if you want to stack heavy objects on it. I am using it for light weight décor in my living room and for that, it is perfect.
Went together in about 1/2 hour. I had to have my husband muscle one back brace because the pegs didn't align exactly with the predrilled holes, but some muscle and a little wiggling got it done. I like the stand a lot.
The quality is there, as far as MDF gets. The color actually matched my *** driftwood entertainment furniture (which was pretty shocking to me). The grain in the wood looks really. As far as look it exceeded my expectations. As far as width size, well that's my own fault. I believed it would be wider, but it turned out to be taller. Other than all that, it was easy to build. Just don't use the *** glue they give you, use real wood glue instead. It ends up lasting a bit longer, and is more stable.
Why no rewards???? Quality item and saves hassle of wall mount for tv if you need it raised a few inches. I had 40 inch. Went to 32 inch TV for bedroom. My stand was for 36 and up. This works. I would recommend it as a simple and quick alternative to a wall mount . I would recommend to all friends to get as a minor adjustment. Thanks. As advertised
The book shelf is made from recyled products, thus it is light weight. As long as there are no heavy items, I think the shelf would be good. I had a lot of big binders containing sheet music, so I was a bit concerned about the weight. So far, so good. Very easy to install; no tools needed, and done in a matter of minutes.
I'm using this tower in my kitchen to store small appliances on. I have very little storage and counter space, so this was a wonderful addition. I was able to get my toaster, food processor, small George Foreman grill, radio and a cookie jar on it and off my counter! The tower was easy to put together and is easy to clean.
