Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shan Nice bookcase, bad packaging.
I love the size and color but, the front left side was very beat up in shipping. If we noticed before we put it together we would have taken it back. Coming all the way from China I guess we should have expected it. I love being able to pick up items and store and the employes were great. Just the shipping packaging was bad. If the packaging with better them maybe I would recommend this. There are pictures and there are gauges all the way down only showed 2.

I was not sure if the cabinet would have particle board pieces and was very pleased it did not. All the pieces including the shelves were wood. It is a heavy, sturdy piece and I bought them for either side of my sister's fireplace and they look amazing. The packaging was great because the boxes were destroyed by the time I picked them up at Home Depot and expected broken pieces. Everything was fine and the directions were very easy to follow.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maxsmom1127 Wouldn't recommend
The bookshelf does not look as high quality as the Oxford desk - there is some exposed hardware, and its just not as sturdy looking. I have had it for a couple weeks, and it still is giving off an awful chemical smell. Probably would not purchase again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by andreakav Quality Modern Bookcase
We needed a slim bookcase for my daughter's nursery and this is one of the few I could find. It's easy to assemble, and sturdy. My one gripe is that the back board is a slightly different color to the rest of the piece but once the bookcase is dressed with books, toys etc. this is hardly noticeable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Librarian Good Quality and super price!
I put one of these together almost by myself. The instructions say it is better with two people. My ten year old helped stabilize the large parts during the process. The directions are easy to follow. They rely more on clear illustrations than words. It took me all of 45 minutes to put it together the first time. The rest of them will be less because now I am familiar with the process.
Quality: This is NOT particle board like the awful ones they sell at some other stores. This is IKEA quality and much better price. The parts match up almost perfectly. I hate it when the pre-drilled holes don't match. These do.
I got really really lucky with my timing of purchase - It was qualified for free shipping. I noticed today it is not. It is still a good price. And because of the free shipping, I purchased more units. :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MimiJ Looks nice but hard to assemble
The durability and look of the bookshelf seems fine. However, my husband and his friend had a very difficult time putting it together and had to force some parts together resulting in small cracks in two pieces. These cracks cannot be seen from the front so I plan to keep the bookshelf since it would be difficult to return now. I also found the photo in the add misleading since the unit is smaller than the image displayed.

Only complaint is the weight of the item in a box. Really should be 2 cartons, shelves in one, and tall pieces in another. For crying out loud, I'm a senior citizen, and grateful that I saw UPS man arriving so he could walk it into the foyer for me.
Easy FOR 2 PEOPLE to assemble.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Molenzo Too Expensive for the Quality
Looking for a bookcase to stand beside my two white book towers, I thought I had found the perfect one. I noticed some paint flaking in the corners, but thought it probably wouldn't be too noticeable so I proceeded to assemble it. Half way through this task, I realized that it wasn't just flaking paint; the side trim was actually coming unglued! Also, three of the cam bolts broke during assembly. For $200, this should not happen.
Due it its weight, it was a very ungainly item to repackage and return to the store.
