I only gave them four stars because one of them came without the predrilled holes on the top shelf. When I contacted O.com I was told they did not come with the holes drilled. Imagine their surprise when I respond by telling them that we already had one put together and it did have the holes. We also ordered the desk and media center from the same line and they all go together the same way. Neddless to say we are getting a new shelf today. As for the bookcases they are great. Easy to put together tall and attractive if you like this look. It is all for a home office. I would recommend anything from the TriBecca line. It seems to be well constructed and the materials are nice.
I was very irritated when I opened the package to find damage already to the pieces. A six inch superficial crack in one board, chipped corners on three, and small dents on another. However, the box is ridiculously heavy, and every damaged piece on the shelf had a correlating damaged area on the box. They really need to upgrade their packaging to accommodate the weight. Putting it together was awkward by myself, and one of the boards didn't have holes drilled on one side where there should have been holes. Even after all these complaints, the finished product is awesome! I intended this to be an organizer for the kids' books and toys, and I turned it sideways so the kids could access all of the spaces. As a mother of five, I can say without a doubt that this shelf is going to stand up to the abuse it is about to receive. Bonus - optional wall bracket to keep little climbers from being squished, extra screws and small pieces in case a tiny thief runs off with a couple and throws them down the return vent :)
