Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BonnieJC Chipped and damaged
I am a long time customer. This was the first time I have ever had product arrive damaged. Both sets of bookends are damaged on the tips of the Fleur-de-lis. They are chipped. As I needed them immediately and don't want to take the time to return and reorder I am just pretending that I found them in an antique shop hidden in a corner and well-worn from previous owner!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JosieKid MDF not stated
The product description states the bookends are 'carved' and 'wood'. For those reasons I purchased them, as well as for their attractive presentation. However, after receiving them I see a sticker attached that states, 'MDF', which means medium density fiberboard, consisting of ground up wood fibers and binders. There is no natural 'wood' grain as I presumed based on the description wording. The finish is not a stain, but a heavy coating that can chip off in pieces.
The only advantage of using MDF for bookends is the additional weight compared to that of real wood. I recommend these stylish bookends to those who are ok with fake wood pretending to be grain wood.
All said, for MDF, the quality is good and well done.

These bookends are HUGE. I believe they were designed for a dinosaur's library. I have returned them. Hopefully I will get my money back.

These bookends are very nice and work well in the space I'd intended them for. I was surprised by how big they are...HDC should probably put up a picture of them holding up books to give a better idea of scale. That said, they were an excellent value at 50% off on Black Friday and I am happy with my purchase.

Yes, these are large, but for my area, they are perfect. Well-made, lovely finish, and heavy enough to hold large books without moving or sliding. Highly recommend these.

This was my 5th purchase from Home Decorators and it's another hit. Every bit as nice as portayd but has slightly whitewash distress, but it looks fine on this item. they are large and well-built. They would work with most decors.
Thanks again, Home Decorators!!

Simply put, these Bookends are exquisite! They are formal yet fun. Made with extreme care and quality, they make any room come to life. I am using them in my Kitchen and the flare presents not only a show-item, but a talking piece as well.

These are great! They are big and sturdy enough to really hold the books. I've tried others that just didn't have the size and weight to really hold books in place, but these do. Plus the design is beautiful!
