Beautiful, modern with quality appearance, but some issues with assembly
Tara from Oakland, CA – Verified Buyer
I ordered two shelves recently and was very impressed at how well they were packaged upon delivery, as well as the quality of the appearance. This has the look of a much more expensive bookcase and was exactly what I was hoping to receive based on the photos. The instructions could use some improvement, but once you figure out how to read them, assembly is fairly straightforward. The first bookshelf took me about an hour to assemble and didn't require much effort, just a keen eye to distinguish the different sized of bolts/rods/washers. However, I encountered problems with the second one. In the process of trying to assemble it I discovered some imperfections with the the pre-drilled holes (some of the wood was clogging the holes and the rods were not able to pass through) to the point that I cannot configure the shelves properly. I am following up with the company, but was disappointed by the issue, particularly because the first shelf had been so easy to configure.
Instructions need modifying... its only one unit not two as pictured.

The bookcase is beautiful and appealingly designed. Yes though - There is a but. Once you open the box modify the instructions. Distinguish the larger washers from smaller ones. Distinguish large long bolts from shorter and which ones to use where FIRST. NEXT: Ghost assemble ALL pieces first (don't actually use the allen wrench to the bolts until you have all the long bolts through the end pieces) from the top down not from the bottom up. Now - start to assemble from the bottom but use gravity to press the shelves into place on the wooden toggles. UPSIDE down tighten all the bolts. The weight from the BOTTOM DOWMN will reinforce the unit. Even fully assembled this is not for a sizable book collection, the shelves are quite hollow but it's a heavy bookcase and looks beautiful in a room.

We get so many compliments! Great quality and easy to assemble. We bought two. I recommend having a gap between the bookcases rather than having them right up against each other. My only tip is to assemble on a tarp or blanket. One side got scratched from the debris on the floor. We just put that side against the wall. Great service. Delivered early.
Beautiful modern shelf - perfect accent wall piece!
Dana from Minneapolis, MN
I purchased the walnut version and it is beautiful. It has that sepia-tone to the stain that makes it look more modern. Some reviews said it's not solid wood -- but I can't tell the difference. Was simple to assemble (once I realized I should follow the directions and assemble from the top down - following the numbered pieces while lying flat on the floor on a blanket!) Came with all the necessary hardware to assemble too. Wish I had more space for a second!
Jakob from CT
Bought two bookcases and absolutely love them. They look similar to an Italian one I was going to buy for 5 times the price. The quality is superior and makes my home look like a million dollars. Assembly was easy and the quality is outstanding. Would definitely recommend this unit to anyone!

Just as represented
Michael from Dallas, TX – Verified Buyer
The bookcase came in very good shape and assembled fairly simply to be just what it was supposed to be. The wood is heavy so assembly was a small challenge in that way. Not simple to manipulate as you are building.

This unit exceeded expectations. The laquer finish is shiny without being gaudy. The shelves have a great depth. We used white glove delivery so did not have to deal with assembly. It took the two experienced delivery men an hour to assemble.
