Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Juliezhd Not What I expected
I ordered this hesitantly as I prefer to see furniture in person before purchasing, but because it had some good reviews I went ahead & ordered it. It does not look like an expensive piece of furniture & came with chipped paint. It looks nice from afar, but far from nice up close. I don't feel it is a piece of furniture that looks like the price I paid for it. It looks like cheap particle board & it is in fact made out of mainly particle board. It looks much smaller in person than it looks on this site too. It also has fake distressed wood painted on it. It looks cheap. Very unhappy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Montessa Good value
I have a LOT of books. These shelves are beautiful and fit right into my library replacing inexpensive ones. Because I have large books I am not able to get as many books on the shelves as I wanted. You can only have six shelves if your books are 9" or shorter. They are well packaged in a large box The boxes had to be removed to get them into the room. Very pleased !!

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.

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.

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.
