Good bookshelf for the price
Benjamin from Inver Grove Heights, MN – Verified Buyer
Love the contemporary design of this bookcase. Material has the "plastic" feel outside with wood look pattern. It's light like fiberboard and not solid wood at all. It can be a good thing for some to move around easily. One of the good things at least in our case, is the dimensions of HxDxW. It fits exactly where we wanted to put it. I was a bit worry about the width if it's not exactly like it was listed in product description, but it worked out right. I bought this bookcase mainly for it look and fit of the space. Even though, this bookcase is for books but I find it can be better used for a mix of thing like in the pictures. And like some people already mentioned, the shelves are not tall enough to put the books up but to lay them flat down. Bottom line is product works as described (or as shown in the picture). Although, the color might be a bit whiter more like the background the this webpage instead of the off-white look of the picture. Price is right. I had no problem putting this all together. However, the instruction could had been done a better job in more clear steps. I would still recommend this product.
Excellent quality and construction.

This is the second Celio 53" bookcase that I've purchased in white. I used the first one for the upper part of a dining room hutch. It created a really nice addition to my dining room by placing it on top of 4 (upper) kitchen cabinets that I placed on a frame directly on the floor. Marble on top of the cabinets, then the bookcase on top of that arrangement made a great, modern hutch. I liked it so much I created another "L" shaped setup in our large master bedroom as a coffee bar and entertainment area. The shelves of this bookcase are very sturdy; 1" thick, making it quite attractive and strong. I expect it to last my entire life. The quality is that good;sadly enough, something you don't find very often anymore. Great job Hokku!
Celio 53" Bookcase

I am really someone who has always turned toward more traditional furnishings. However, I love this bookcase more than I thought I would and my neighbors who have seen it have been very intrigued, yes, intrigued that something like this actually exists and the price was a mere pittance. Thank goodness I didn't unsubscribe when I first saw your e-mail and have since read about your up and coming business throughout the country or was it the world. I don't care as long as you're in mine. I know I'm gushing but I can't help it. My friend had a bit of difficulty putting it together and ended up just looking at the picture on the box! I have this in my living room. I had originally been looking for an entertainment center and fell in love with this and another bookcase and piece of furniture that ties it all together for a different look altogether.

This piece arrived promptly. When we first opened the box, the task to assemble felt a little daunting. Inside the box were, what seemed like, "hundreds" of pieces of MFD (Medium Density Fiberboard) and a bag of attachment pieces. It took my husband and brother 3 hours to complete the bookcase. We love it though. It went together well and looks nice and airy. We use it to hold baskets that store grandkids play things - little toys, crayons & markers.
Lots of time to build but worth the wait
Christine from Saint Louis, MO – Verified Buyer
Love this shelf! This had the perfect mix of places for my books and display space for collectables and added a fun, eye-catching piece to my apartment. I've gotten lots of complements on it so far. I built it with someone else, and highly recommend that. It's definitely a two person job. I didn't need to bolt the shelf to the wall, although there is an option to do so. Stylish and functional - it's perfect!
Matches the photo perfectly
Brian from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
I really like this bookcase! It wasn't too hard to put together. I had some help so it took less time, but this can be done by one person. It is very sturdy and looks more expensive than what it cost. It is fantastic in the living room for me and company has already complimented the new addition. I absolutely recommend. (I purchased the black color and it is indeed very dark).
Saina from Forest Hills, NY – Verified Buyer
While this is challenging to put together, it is definitely worth it! I was able to do it by myself but it took a few hours. The end result? A beautiful book case that completes my living room perfectly. The quality of the material is sturdy and they do mark the pieces to make it easier. Would definitely recommend this!
Great product, particle board but much sturdier than I expected
Micah from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
Was initially a little disappointed, but after emptying the box realized the details have been though out well. Even the stickers to cover up the screw holes are well thought out: Same color, and with matching wood grain. Overall, look exactly as depicted. Takes a full hour to set-up, but not terribly complex or intellectually taxing/frustrating
Karen from Plant City, FL – Verified Buyer
We love our new book case, it is very stylish and perfect for showing off your collections. The book shelf does have to be put together and it has many parts. The parts are packaged and well organized, but it can be tricky.
Bought Two, will buy more!
Karla Linden, LMT, NMT from Albuquerque, NM – Verified Buyer
I purchased two for my office, Masterpiece Medical Massage - and we love them so much I am going to purchase at least one more. Only drawback is that they have to be totally assembled - I did have to hire someone to do that - however very pleased with style, quality, value.
