    • Perth 5 shelf bookcase
      Verified Purchase

      At first glance at the Perth 5 shelf bookcase by Christopher knight home, I loved the look of this unit. It was something I needed in my apartment. So I ordered it and a few days later it was delivered to my apt. Built it in about one hour, emptied my old shelf off and put my items on the Perth bookcase and man it looked great. Sturdy and very easy to put together. I recommend this to all my friends. Than you

      I took a long time to decide on a shelf, I really liked the style of this one. For the price I’m going to say it’s absolutely NOT worth it. The parts are very easily damaged. The first shelf that I was sent, the holes in the top shelf were drilled incorrectly. I wasn’t able to even attach it without damaging it or it looking terrible. I also had some very sharp edges where there were welds on one side of the metal shelf part. There were also some pieces of metal, like where they had cut metal when it was being made, that were now stuck in places because they fell onto it and then when they painted it, the shards got stuck. It looked bad and was hazardous. I contacted about replacement parts and they sent me the incorrect side and a replacement top part, but they zip tied the top wooden shelf to the metal side part, which then damaged the wooden shelf becuase it had 4 dents on it from the zip ties digging in. So I contacted again, they sent me the correct top shelf, and another incorrect side piece, I was in need of a right side, not a left side. Yet again, I contacted for the correct side piece, after 6 weeks of hearing nothing and receiving nothing, they told me that it was on backorder and that it would be sent soon. A few days later it arrived and it was still the incorrect piece. Once again, I contacted. This time, the lady was incredibly rude and had told me that it was now out of warranty and that they had sent me too many parts. First of all, I don’t see how I could have been out of warranty, it had only been a couple months and had yet to have a complete product that was functional and not damaged. This wasn’t my fault. It also wasn’t my fault that they are so stupid, they continued to send me the wrong side piece. I sent an email back stating this and she then told me they were just going to to send me both sides so there was no more issue. I open the box and not only were there two sides in there, but another complete unit. Careful inspection showed that the metal sides were in near perfect condition, and not that I needed them, but the metal shelves were one of the crappiest I had ever seen. They looked like they weren’t even finished “making” them. They are all loaded with wood putty, and then that wood putty wasn’t sanded off, so it’s lumpy and crappy looking. Luckily they weren’t needed. I’m just going to assemble that shelf and swap the sides out for the one that I needed and put that crappy shelf in the basement or something for storage. Overall, the customer service was incredibly poor, and now, even having a complete semi “perfect” unit, it’s still not really worth the price for me. The wood is kind of rough and hard to clean because when you use a Swiffer duster, it shreds the duster up and leaves SEVERAL pieces of the duster that it ripped off all snagged into the wood, especially on the edges. Same thing happens with a paper towel. About the only thing I can use is a dampened rag because it doesn’t snag as bad and the moisture helps it glide. If you’re looking at another shelf in the same price range and the reviews are decent, go with the other one. This company is a HEADACHE to deal with and the parts are shoddy at best.

      I purchased two of theses bookcases for a craft room and they look great. The shelves are wood with a nice x-back metal detail. There are five wood shelves which hold a lot of items! I would definitely purchase again and highly recommend.

      Surprisingly great quality. Real wood, real steel. Sturdy. Good dimensions. Exceeds expectations. I have a lot of wood in my home and just completed construction of a live edge maple shelf system that uses plumbing pipe for supports. The five shelf Perth book shelf goes nicely with my other wood working creations.

      I'm generous with my reviews, but in actuality I would give this a 3.5. The materials are good. The wood has a decent finish, and it looks nice. When assembled, the shelf is pretty light. The screw holes in the shelves could have been better aligned, but you have to be somewhat close to notice that they are inconsistent. The one I received needed to balanced, as the front right leg was a little short (1/8 inch a the most). I fixed it easily with a few pieces of cardstock. Overall I think you receive a good value for your dollar with this, and for under *** i would recommended it.

      This is a classy piece that looks and even SMELLS expensive. Strong and pleasant smell of cedar out of the box-- reminded me of my grandma's hope chest. This is real wood and knotted/mottled very naturally. It was not at all difficult to put together to though it is easier with two people. It took about 15 minutes. Lots of extra screws and parts if you lose any. This can hold quite a few books and is narrow enough in depth that it fit in our strange layout of our study without impeding the walkway through the room which is what I was looking for. It really does look like a much more expensive piece than it is. I was hesitant to buy but should not have been at all.

    • Perfect for the Office, a couple flaws
      Verified Purchase

      This bookshelf went together fairly simply using the included allen wrench. However, one of the nuts on a shelf was stripped when it arrived, so that shelf is only screwed in on 3 sides instead of 4. It doesn't seem to effect it's function, but because of that, I deducted 1 star. If you are putting this on carpet or have children, I highly suggest using drywall anchors instead of the screws provided in order to anchor the shelf to the wall. The design of the shelf is beautiful. The wood shelves have beautiful grains and the metal has almost a mottled/distressed look up close. It holds A TON as you can see and really helped clean up my husband's office at the front of our house. It looks much nicer through the french doors now :)

      The directions are easy to follow, and I put the bookcase together on my own in 30 minutes. It's important to follow the instructions on how to screw everything together because if you don't it there will be areas with gaps and it will rock. I learned this the hard way when putting together our first bookshelf. (This is our second.) Overall, I love the look of the piece, and it provides good storage. The price is decent (if you catch it on sale) when compared to similar shelves from other retailers. However, I was less than pleased with the smell of the wood when unpacking the box. I put everything in the garage for a while to let it off gas. Also, although the shelves are a hardwood-acacia, I have found that the wood scratches easily.

      This came quickly and ready to assemble, which my husband did in about 45 minutes. It has no flaws, and actually is great looking just as the picture. It holds books (heavier items) which I needed it for and is in my bedroom, where the metal and the wood shelves (not particle board) look great with my traditional furniture, but new gray updated bedroom renewal! Great buy, and fabulous looks!

      We love, love this shelf. It has added such functional yet beautiful storage to our home. The wood is solid and the steel is strong. We will be reinforcing it as well to make sure it is sturdy but I highly recommend this product. There is a good chance we buy another down the road. It was also straight forward to assemble if that matters to you.
