      Option: Antique Blue

      We were excited about this shelf based on the photos and reviews but are honestly disappointed with the quality. The blue is indeed greyes and antique. It seems more country than modern to me. It took perhaps an hour to put together. Two panels were chipped (white) so they had to be assembled to face the wall. A few of the holes for hardware were slightly misaligned but it was easily solved. The wooden legs between shelves were very poorly made and poorly painted. We tried to put the worst in back and turn the chipped sides toward the wall. The legs at the bottom have a swath of silver paint that was not sharp nor well painted and look terrible. Lastly in the inside of each of the three shelves there are two screw caps at the top of each side that are awful looking. A book as tall as the side might hide them but if you intend to use the shelf for other things as we did they will be unsightly. They do seem to be photoshopped out of the photo shown. I took one from a similar distance and they are quite apparent. It's not an expensive shelf but I do think there are better options for the price.

      Love the gold color, it gives it a chic finish, and it’s exactly the style I was looking for. It matches perfectly with the mid century modern sofas in my living room.

      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 bookshelf looks even better in person. It is very high quality and has metal caps on the legs, which give it that authentic mid century look. Assembly was easy as well. I highly recommend it.

      Let me say, the reviews were pretty half and half on this shelf so I decided the reasonable price was worth the gamble. I ordered this shelf in walnut. Upon opening the box and taking things out, I noticed a few marks on pieces here and there. And as previously mentioned, there was a strong smell (I’m guessing from the wood stain that was used), but it quickly dissipated. I took a Sunday afternoon to put this together and it was so easy and straightforward. It took me solo about an hour-hour and a half from start to finish. I’m very happy with the quality of this piece. It was the perfect height and width for my spot, and is a pretty substantial piece. Due to the design, it is a bit wobbly. Leaning it against the wall did the trick for me. But I’d say if you have kids or it will be heavily used, fasten it to the wall. Personally, I wish the caps on the feet were a little more gold. They almost blend in with the wood, but that’s a personal preference and I can live with it for what I paid. Overall a great piece for a great price! Looks like I paid more and it matched the style of my home really well. Happy!

      Option: Walnut Brown

      For the price, I was surprised at the quality. I purchased the walnut, and there were no noticeable scratches or dings. It's nice and sturdy, but would need to be mounted to the wall, especially if you have kids or pets. I would like it even better if the shelves were a little deeper. The reason I marked it 4 stars is because of the overwhelming smell of the wood when I opened the package. The smell has dissipated over the past few days, but makes me wonder what this was preserved with to have such an odor.

      Exactly what I was hoping for- great bookshelf for my at home office! I got the walnut & gold finish and really like it. The geometric shape is unique and provides a somewhat mid century modern aesthetic without going over board.

      Was looking for a bookshelf that wasn't the traditional rectangular shape with adjustable shelves. Easy to assemble. Color goes well with my mid century modern living room. Legs are not metal though...just painted silver. Which looks just fine. For the price this is a great buy.

      Assembled product looks just like the photo and it wasn't too hard to put together. The instructions did call for putting glue (included) into all the little dowel holes, which was a little annoying because I'm kind of sloppy, so I was constantly wiping away little smears of glue. As far as stability, eh, you get what you pay for. It wobbles a bit if you push on it. But overall, it looks great and though I've loaded every tier down with books, and the shelves look like they will stay straight.

      Option: Antique Blue

      Pretty subtle gray blue color that blends well. Easy to put together. I'm 55 and not mechanical, but did it alone. Plenty of glue for dowels, cam locks, very little twisting of the wrist required. So nice. I will put it in a darkish space at the end of the hall to lighten the area. 50's tv lamps, books, doilies. oddities will look great. Great sturdy bookshelf of good weight for balance. Thanks!

      Pegs must be completely inserted or they will break through the laminate during assembly. I split it twice but not in a noticeable spot. Overall, product is very pretty and perfect for my need.

    • Great Shelf!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Antique Blue

      Looks just like the picture and is great quality. I did not give it 5 stars because it came with some of the wooden pieces chipped to reveal white instead of the blue color. One of the legs also was missing a hole so, I had to drill it in during construction. It's sturdy and chic looking.

    • Stylish for the price, with some flaws
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Antique Blue | Antique White

      I bought three of these, two white and one blue. The white shelves come with actual metal ferrule feet with furniture glides. The blue shelf just has silver paint to look like ferrule feet and without any furniture glides. Unfortunately, if you plan to use these side-by-side as I did, there will be about a 1/4” difference in height, due to the glides. I plan to purchase my own glides and to attach them to the blue shelf. Also, the finish on the blue shelf seems fairly fragile. Just in the course of normal assembly on a soft surface, some blue paint came off revealing white underneath. And of course the blue is the hardest to match for touch ups. I wonder if the manufacturer offers touch up paint. Despite these shortcomings, they are stylish shelves for the price, especially since I got them at Black Friday prices.

      This bookshelf is awesome! It looks exactly as pictured and I was able to put together myself. It didn't take more than 1 hour. It is sturdy and doesn't wobble. However I haven't had to move it either. I would purchase this item again.

      Easy to put together. It is Bigger (in a good way) than I expected; but I didn’t check the measurements against the room. It does need to be anchored to the wall seems like it would easily be tipped over if pulled on.

      This bookshelf has substantial weight to it and is a quality piece. The design is perfect for the style I’m going for in my living room/front room space. The glue can get a little messy, so be mindful of that! But the color and size are perfect. Took my husband’s friends 30 mins to put it together. Happy I bought this!

      Great bookshelf, fits everything that I need it to. It's one of my pieces of furniture that always gets compliments from guests. It's stood up to two moves and looks as good as new. The silver at the bottom of its feet didn't match the rest of my room, so I spray painted that area gold and it has held up well.

      Product was not expensive so wasn't expecting much but I wanted to get rid of it immediately after assembly. The reasons: 1. It's compressed wood mostly held together by glue and dowels. Scratches easily. Already starting to look worn. 2. It's too big, which makes it a little wobbly (esp because it's mainly held together by glue and dowels. 3. The connectors between each shelf are the same exact color as the shelves, not a different shade as indicated in the pictures. I'd return this if I could but we all know it's a pain to return furniture (plus I got rid of the box a bit too early). Personally I think it's better to spend a few extra bucks on something that will last and looks like it has more quality.

      Words can not express how much I love this bookcase! It's impossible to find the right shelving for a colorful home because everything always come in dark brown, black, or white but once I saw this one I was in love! Easily put together and you can actually keep it in sections (i.e.: Stack two for a bookcase and have one for a little cubby for blankets. I love this bookshelf so much that I bought two of them!
