Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xenamom Looking very good!
I was hesitant to purchase this bookcase on line as it appeared to be a very good value and I didn't trust the finish. However, after living with it - I Love it! It came very well packed with not a scratch on it. I have assembled lots of furniture in my day and I found it pretty easy, but needed my husband to turn it over to assemble the back board. Once in my living room I was so pleased with the dark finish that matched my secretary on the opposite wall. I had a great time decorating all the shelves with books, photos, Chinese vases on the top, etc. Looks very designer like and perfect in my new transitional living room. Not flimsy or cheap looking at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1MOM GREAT BOOKCASE
I received a box and thought great it is here - but after I opened it I realized I needed a second box of parts. It came the next day. I unpacked it in the garage thus avoiding the packing mess I had read about on line. We followed the directions starting at the top at about 2 pm and by 8 pm I had a beautiful bookcase all loaded with books and items I wanted to display. The finish is beautiful and had NO PROBLEMS! I will definately order from HDC again when I need someting. I checked prices around locally and this was much better looking and 1/2 the price. If this is the size and color you are looking for GO FOR IT - YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewer246 Great value
My husband and I are really happy with the purchase. If you have the time/ability to assemble a bookcase, this bookcase is a great deal. There was a significant amount of unpacking from the boxes (which I did) as well as a time investment of actually putting the bookcase together (which my husband did), but it all went like clockwork. All the pieces arrived undamaged, the instructions were well-written and in good English. The bookcase looks great in our bedroom and happens to match the style/color of our existing furniture set. The bookcase, now assembled, seems sturdy and to me seems like the kind of bookcase you could purchase at a higher-end furniture store fully-assembled.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by remodel1 very poor quality control
The bookcase looked good when we opened the box with nicely finished pieces and all the parts in easy to read bags. As we put the bookcase together parts did not fit well and the screws were not long enough to hold the parts together so we had to buy longer screws. When the back was attached the screws did not line up with the sides and came through the particle board sides and chipped off the inside of the bookcase. When finished the bookcase had gaps along the top and bottom trim.
If time was taken to fit the parts together better and supply the correct screws the bookcase would have been very nice. We would not recommend this bookcase.

This is a high quality bookcase - great value. Beautiful wood and finish that matched my existing, extremely expensive office furniture. I looked at a dozen other retailers and this was definitely the best choice. I'm very happy with it. It was well packaged & arrived in great shape. As other reviewers mentioned, it's better to go buy four #8 two-inch wood screws (for the feet) & your own wood glue before you get started assembling. Not absolutely essential, but if you're like me & you don't have much assembly experience it's helpful. Go online & look for a video on how to install cam locks if you need help. It was easy!

This is the fourth bookcase we've bought from Home Decorators. We've looked at a LOT of furniture stores, and it's by far the best place - value, selection, quality - to buy nice bookcases. The only downside was that they kept delaying the shipment. For four months. However, the customer service people were great when I called to voice my displeasure, so don't be afraid to talk to them.
This bookcase specifically is of good quality, nice and stable, and looks at home with our bedroom set. Everyone who has seen the bookcases we've ordered from HD has complemented them and asked where they can get nice cases like that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leyna Nice looking shelves!
We are very happy with these bookshelves. We bought a pair to flank a black built-in unit, and they look like they belong. Very sturdy. We were nervous when we read reviews about the assembly, but it really wasn't difficult. My husband assembled them with only the help of our 12 and 6 year olds. He hates assembling furniture, and he said this wasn't bad at all. The only reason I gave it a 4 for workmanship is that a couple of the shelves came to us with nicks taken out of the black finish, and it seemed to chip off easily. They are glaring because the wood is so light underneath, but it was nothing that a black sharpie couldn't hide. I just hope it doesn't continue to chip easily.

I have been looking for a black, nice looking bookcase for quite a while now. I came across this one and decided to give it a try based on the other reviews. I wanted something that looks of high quality but not the high price. It was relatively painless to put together..I read the directions and my husband assembled. This bookcase is exactly what I wanted! It looks of very high quality. The only problem we had was that the bottom feet on one side would not attach with the screws provided, so we had to use longer screws, and one of the shelves was damaged but I called customer service and they are shipping out a new one. I have ordered the desk and other items since this was so nice!
