Bought three for my living room. Easy to put together. Two of the three top shelves had small patches of wood putty to cover manufacturing scratches. Also, middle shelf sagged within 10 minutes of holding a full shelf of mostly hardback books. Overall, for price, style and simplicity, I would recommend.
We were pleasantly surprised that a large piece of furniture like which has an wood printed overlay on it could look fairly real. I was dubious when putting the piece together, because you can see the reclaimed wood pattern imprinted on each board and it looked obviously fake. However, when standing upright, and when you've assembled your items on it, it really has the look of reclaimed wood. If someone walks up and touches it, they know it's a fake stamped on pattern, but otherwise, in our room, it just looks great. I'm rating this as "good" because of the print of the reclaimed wood (it could be done better), but this is a sturdy and large bookcase that really gave our living room a nice area to decorate in a large open wall space. The quality is that of many office desks which are pressed wood with an adhesive veneer that you find by many other manufacturers.
Very easy to put together. Wrapped nicely. I ordered the Bistre Brown - and it's MUCH darker than the pictures and has a different texture. I am keeping it and I flipped the shelves to the other side as I did not like the texture pattern and don't feel like wrapping it back up. Another retailer has the same thing for *** - EXACTLY the same. I already put it together so I will be asking for a price match!
For the price, this is a great bookcase. The wood shelves have a deep pattern in them to make them look more industrial or antique. But overall, it's a very nice bookcase and it looks great in my office.
