I was surprised at the quality of the bookcases for the price. Finish was just what I wanted. My husband thought the assembly was well thought out and easy to assemble. Had one small flaw in the front of one shelf but turned it to the back. Really pleased with them!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cards Very disappointed
Nearly all of the pieces were marked up on the visible portions (scrapes cracks, poor paint job), which was a bit annoying, but I was willing to live with it. A second annoyance was that they gave me two of the same back piece, so one of them had to be reversed so the 'marked up' side had to face the front while the 'clean' side had to face the back.
When I got to installing the shelves, however, I found that they were about an inch too narrow for the depth of the bookcase, so there was A LOT of back and forth play, which is completely unacceptable, so I'm returning the unit, and will be shopping for a replacement elsewhere.
Pretty much the only positives were that the unit was pretty easy to put together and that the frame was surprisingly sturdy considering there is no fixed shelf in the middle.

Once opening the carton, which was very well packed, you can smell a strong chemical oder.This smell rose off of all segments of the bookcase and I did not want it in my house. All pieces of the structure were brought out to my covered porch for 1 week to "air out". At that point we had to wash all pieces with a soapy water solution to get rid of the chemical smell. Only then did we bring the items into the house to construct the bookcase, which was very easy to do.

Received 2 of these in blue today. They were super easy to assemble and the paint quality was good. There were a couple of spots where the paint was a little shiny, but I just put that side against the wall. I'm very happy with these! They go well with another parsons shelf purchased elsewhere.

Got the baby blue Parsons bookcase and I am really pleased with it. No chemical smells at all. It is helpful if you have two people to put it together but I did it alone and managed ok, it just took a bit longer.
I loved the little details (like all the screw holes lining up, and the rubber feet on the bottom of the shelf unit).

Love the style of these and so far are durable for the past month (?). No warping as of yet from large coffee table books. However, upon close inspection you will find spots where the paint is not smooth, air bubbles visible, little marks. The veneer was coming off one of the sides but the company sent me a replacement piece without any hassles. Good price but the catch is you may not get a perfect looking unit (at least up-close).

I was concerned about the color of this bookcase because it looked very different than the orange color in the photo of the media console. But it is great. A nice bright orange that I was looking for for my son's room. It seems like a nice, sturdy case. My husband said that it was easier to assemble than any other peice of furniture that we have ever purchased. Check the measurements because I was envisioning it being taller and more narrow - the shelves are very deep.
