Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by p2innova Very pleased
I've had my eye on this piece for a long time. I thought it would be the perfect piece for a tricky space; I was right. It arrived in perfect condition. The reason I rated "value" lower is because this same bookcase is available from HD through two other sites - as well as their own - at two other prices for a total of three different prices and terms. That aside, it is just what I wanted.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by saw75 Beautiful Bookcase
Overall, I am happy with the Christina Open Bookcase. The bookcase is solid and beautiful in my new home office. I ordered a pair of these to flank either side of the french doors. One bookcase arrived damaged with the back broken in one spot. Home Decorators Collection's customer service was fantastic in sending me a replacement bookcase and arranging for pickup of the damaged item. I would say my only complaint is the quality of the materials. It appears to be MDF and I was hoping for more solid hardwoods for the price I paid. All in all, I am satisfied with the purchase and have received many compliments from friends who saw them for the first time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewerla2014 Beautiful, adjustable , could be more distressed
This is a beautiful piece that looks pretty high-quality given the price.
It seems sturdy enough. Though It does seem the shelves may not hold a ton of weight?
What's also great is the shelves are totally adjustable anywhere.
Note that the shelves do not have any distressing on them which to me isn't ideal/stands out a tiny bit, and overall the piece is just lightly distressed – not distressed as much as I personally like, or on all edges. But not reason enough to not get it, it still works and is beautiful.

We are really happy with this bookcase and even thinking of purchasing another one to balance the other side of the room. It was fairly easy to assemble and I had it decorated with books, photos and antique treasures very quickly. The customer service staff was excellent to work with. Very satisfied.

Every time I walk by and see this bookcase I love it. It makes me happy.
I was cautious to order something so expensive, but I am glad I did. (Thus the "fair" value star, but no more) I will never walk by this bookcase and feel it was a bad purchase. It is beautiful.
The delivery was smooth. I chose basic threshold delivery since the bookcase wasn't going up stairs or anything difficult. I had the delivery man bring in the bookcase on its side so I could easily slide the box and maneuver it round the corner and down the hall. While the box is very long and a bit heavy, I could slide it round the corner and down the hall all by myself.
There was some damage to the box but no harm to the bookcase. It is wrapped in plastic and the top and bottom have fitted Styrofoam to keep the bookcase secure.
It was easy to open the box and lift the bookcase upright into place. The only "assembly" is pushing the provided metal pegs into round holes. These are upon which the book shelves sit. There are 3 sets of holes in four different areas, so you can select how much space is between each shelf.
It is "distressed" around the edges. I'll be touching that up with a bit of paint as it isn't my style. (Thus 4 stars instead of 5) Overall, a wonderful piece.
oh! even though I live in earthquake country and wall mounts were provided, I have chosen not to use them. But, they are provided for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by judeT Nice looking bookcase
I am very pleased with my purchase of this bookcase, it was just what I was looking for and the color I was looking for which is an unusual color for furniture. It is pretty sturdy. My one complaint would be that the back board on one side was not hammered in thoroughly so had to do that myself, but overall I am very satisfied and it looks good in my room.

I would be 110% happy if the color representations in the catalogue or verbal names let you know the undertones. I thought I would be getting a sage and it was blue. I copied off the pallets offered, looked with a hand lens and in the sunlight. You did make a disclaimer about color representation in printing process. The problem could have been avoided if the color description was less embellished for effect and mentioned the under-tones. Luckily I'm a bit eclectic in decor and liked the bookcase because of style and workmanship.
