Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kellen Great veneer
My first impression when I opened up the box was that the veneer was higher quality than I expected for this type of particle board, quick assemble furniture (the type you get at that Swedish store). Assembly was quick and mindless (the one possible gotcha is there is no veneer on the 'back' side, so make sure all the panels are facing the right way).
The shelves themselves are solid and well secured, and looks good enough to not be relegated to just basement/garage storage. I don't think you'll trick anyone who knows their stuff into thinking it's teak, but it does look nice.
I knocked it a star only because of the backboard, it's the typical cardboard backing that's kind of flimsy and won't sit perfectly flat/gives away the 'quick easy assembly' nature of the furniture.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kiki Very nice Cube Organizer~Easy to put together
This cube organizer was very easy to put together. It's very pretty and has good weight to it. I included a picture to show how it comes out of the box before you put it together. It was packaged and protected really well for delivery.
As you can see, it's very straight forward. I had to do a little minor adjusting for some of the hardware - I think the pre-drilled holes may have been slightly too deep, but it was very simple to fix.
I also have included pictures of the finished unit with and without a couple of canvas storage cubes (sold seperately) so you can see how versatile the unit is.
You could use it for books, for collectibles, with or without the canvas storage bins or anything your imagination can come up with! I took the pictures in front of 2 different colored walls so you can also see that this finish will go with mostly any color at all.
The back is very attractive as it was made to match the unit. You may need an extra set of hands to hold it while you nail it on.
Very pretty, nice and durable and very versatile!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LEDengineer Light but sturdy
This organizer fit well in my kitchen for holding various lightweight items. It fits great in a closet, but looks good outside the closet too. The instructions are a little lacking, but read them anyway. Use a hammer! I was too lazy to walk 10 feet into the garage and broke a couple of dowels when I tried to hammer them with the screwdriver handle, which made the whole assembly process rather lengthy. Also you'll need a #3 Phillips driver - don't use a #2 or you'll have trouble tightening things. The instructions don't tell you that.
All the little problems aside, it was easy to put together. The parts fit well, and when I was done it was square and sat flat and level. It's light and easy to move around. There's a little plastic odor, not bad, it goes away after a day. The backing is just a large piece of cardboard, but once attached it makes the whole unit very sturdy. Home Depot also carries fabric drawers that fit the cubes, but I though it looked nice as-is.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hejoanne A nice-looking organizer with a few buts
The organizer looks good and is very easy to put together. It is very versitle. You can use it for shelfing anything that fit inside the cubes, which are about 10 by 10. I wish it comes with the fabric containers you see in the picture. Without the containers you can't store small objects. Closet Maid makes the fabric containers but they are very over-priced. There are some cheaper alternatives if you shop around. I wish each cube is taller so I can fit magazine or binders inside them. The weathered teak finish goes well with a gray wall or silver/white furniture for a sophisticated look. Think twice if most of your furniture is in rich brown or cherry.

Overall we are really happy with this product. Wish it was a little more stable, but it definitely serves its purpose and matches our beach house decor.

Wife and I were looking for a shoe storage furniture piece for the entrance of our apartment. Found it. Good price. Great look. Easy enough instructions. The instructions for installing back panel of the cube organizer could be improved. Fast shipping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UTbadger OK decorative organizer
This is an OK shelving unit. It is made of particle board with a teak print design on it. Its attractive, but definitely does not have a natural or high-quality look to it. The cubes are 11.75 inches wide by 11.75 inches tall and 11.5 inches deep. Not big enough for a lot of storage in each, but sturdy enough to hold whatever you can fit in them. It is easy to assemble (5-10 min), but be careful when putting it together as it is easy to snap the dowel rods that are used.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neelam Nice organizer
Shelf arrived with abundant packaging with all pieces scratch free. Installation was easy, took an hour and required no special skill set. I had no trouble putting it together since all the pieces were pre-drilled in the right places.
All the pieces are laminated particle board and fit well but take extra caution when hammering the back panel.
Once fully assembled, do not move it around by pushing or pulling since the shelves are held by wood dowels. Overall, its appearance is nice, I like the little touch of trim molding at the top and bottom. With its 9 cubes, plenty can be organized or decorated. I sure recommend it.
