Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Great shelf for displaying items.
Wanted the shelf as a display area for items picked up during travels. Shelf is nicely finished and is very sturdy. Assembly was easy but it helps to have two people to line up all the pins and dowels on the second side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB007 Classic Style for a Great Price
I've been looking for a long time for some home office furniture and took a chance on this new collection. Ordered two of these five-shelf bookcases. Both arrived undamaged and both were relatively easy to assemble. I was able to put them together on my own, but would recommend another set of hands for Step 3, connecting the left side to the almost completed unit. This is a solid, sturdy and heavy piece of furniture. Still waiting for the desk, a three-shelf bookcase and two file cabinets. The walnut color gives it a rich expensive look. Purchased this collection when it was discounted and with fthe offer of free S & H. Great deal!

Bookcase is very easy to assemble, instructions are clear. Need your own screwdriver; the one in the box is a little difficult to manipulate.
Only issue was delivery, but this was the carrier's fault, not Home Decorators. (UPS indicated they delivered the package to my apartment unit onmy day off, but I never received a package. I called UPS and Home Decorators immediately after receiving the notification; HD's was excellent in their handling of the mishap. They immediately put in an order for a replacement shipment at no additional charge or inconveenience to me.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CTMom Nice Looking & Sturdy Once Assembled
I bought 2 of these for my son's new apartment. They were a royal pain to assemble, thanks to a blister-raising odd little assembly tool. (I kicked myself for not bringing along my power tools!) For once, all of the pieces were actually there, however, and nothing arrived with damage. I was pleasantly surprised.
Once assembled, the bookcases look fantastic. They are exactly what he wanted, and they're sturdy enough to hold all of his "stuff". They really suit his rather modern apartment, and he's very pleased with them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JackW Nice Bookcase
The Brexley bookcase is a nice piece of furniture at the price. It is very heavy and stable. It fits in well with contemporary decor. There is a fair amount of assembly required. It took me around an hour to put it together. The instructions were clear and no parts were missing (they even include some extras). I was able to put it together myself, although a second person would have been useful. The craftsmanship was only ok. For instance, the pre-drilled dowel holes are larger than the dowels, so getting everything to line up is sometimes a bit tricky. But once you get it together it is very stable. The bookcase top was damaged in shipping butI was able to get a free replacement within a few days. I was very happy with the customer support. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and with Home Decorators.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoonMaiden Good choice
I looked online and in stores and found various options for a bookcase in quality, price, color and size. This bookcase best served my purpose as it's very attractive, sturdy and priced competitively. I must say I'm glad my husband assembled it as that was a quite a process, although the result was what I wanted - a bookcase that would look nice enough for any place in my home. I would have liked a lighter wood and slightly wider, but this unit works well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sunnygarden77 bought Brexley bookcase
We just recently moved about 5 weeks ago and I knew I just had to have 2 of these bookcases, one of each side of my fireplace. We got them about 6 wks later. I was so excited to get them up and using them. Well I helped my wonderful hubby and it took us 2 hrs per bookcase. I never dreamed it would take that long, but now that they are up, I just love them.They look expensive and rich. I would order them again. The chestnut color is so nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gd323 Good for the price
I had been looking for a long bookcase with at least five shelves on it, hoping for an open industrial look. Unfortunately, anything that looked great cost an arm and a leg. I found the Brexley and decided on purchasing two to go side by side, and the price was great.
We got the boxes and began unpacking and noticed that a few of the pieces were cracked, the wood was split in a few locations. I immediately called the number for home decorators on the instruction manual and got no answer, four times.
We decided to go ahead on putting it together anyway because the splits were on side or back pieces and would not be visible.
The installation was easy once you got a handle on all the different parts, I would suggest using your own screwdriver.
All in all for the price they were a good purchase, they hold all my books, dvds and knick-knacks just as intended.
