Satisfied customer in PA from North Wales, PA on 12/16/2014 – Verified Buyer
Kept contemplating this shelf. Had the look I was wanting but really needed black. Wanted a bookcase or shelving unit for our livingroom but didn't want anything standard. Looked for something unique and kept going back to this unit. My first purchase from Wayfair and am extremely satisfied and happy. It is very dark in color so easily passes for black. My husband put it together with little assistance from me. Not the easiest piece to put together but not the hardest either. Just takes patience and about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete. Item came quickly and nothing was damaged. Shelves come labeled so you know what goes where. Only improvement that could be made to make assembly a little quicker and smoother is to have the individual bags of hardware labeled so it is easier to find what you need. When finished unit is sturdy and heavier than I imagined it would be. Good quality unit at a great price by far and I couldn't be more happy with this purchase!!

Exactly like the Picture! STURDY! **Flat Pack Furniture** from Wilmington, NC on 03/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
It took me 3 hours to build this shelf, but it was well worth it! When I first opened the box I was immediately taken back by how black the piece looked. Once it was out of the box, and especially after being built, you can tell it's a true deep kona style stain. My greatest advice is use a marker to put the letters on each of the hardware packets to keep up with pieces. Take your time and make sure to follow the directions exactly, each joiner has a different way of going in, but it all makes sense if you take your time. The book case is super sturdy, and the finishing on ours was perfect. There was only a tiny bit of flaking around the edges of a couple screw holes but only on the back of the piece. The little laminate dots to cover up the screw holes are quite nifty and work well. There is a great deal of shelf space and I haven't found anything that I can't fit on it somewhere. The alternating staggered shelves add to the types of things you can get on display. I was fearful when building it that it would look to bulky in my space because it is a hefty, sturdy piece of furniture, but I have been beyond please since it has been up in the house. (my boyfriend likes it too and he's tough to please when it comes to quality)

Good for the price from Roslindale, MA on 08/18/2014 – Verified Buyer
I consider myself an expert at assembling flat pack furniture, and this piece was particularly challenging. In the assembly instructions not all of the holes and markings are shown, which can make it difficult to figure out which direction you want the piece to be facing. I also did not assemble it vertically as they indicated I should but instead put the shelves face down on the ground and laid the bar on top of it, which made it easier to screw in the shelves. The shelves themselves were of ok quality, I didn't have any problems with misaligned or missing holes like I do sometimes with Ikea furniture, but there were places where the holes drilled through the plywood had ripped some of the laminate "wood grain" covering off. Fortunately, these were all in the base so they're not very noticeable. I was pleased that the shelves seemed very sturdy once fully assembled! All in all, pretty good for this price point!

An assembly nightmare. from Cincinnati, OH on 06/16/2015 – Verified Buyer
If not for the numerous issues assembling the two shelving units, I would rate it a 5. Actually broke two of the cams and replaced with some from a big box hardware store. You have to be really careful that the cams are precisely lined up, which can be an issue if/when the pre-drilled holes are not the right depth. It was an exercise in frustration. Shelves are well made and perfect for my intended use. I assembled one to mirror image the other so that I had a large opening between the top shelves. It would be nice to include enough "dots" to cover all the hardware openings, including those on top and to compensate for those that don't stick. Pros: Aesthetically pleasing and functional. Cons: Assembly nightmare.

great value from poughquag, NY on 10/28/2014 – Verified Buyer
This item was purchased for a trade show display. We bought four of them to show product on. They are finished on both sides so can be used as dividers. I would not reccomended loading the shelves with a heavy load, we kept it to about 20lbs each floating shelf. The general quality is pretty good, the fittings are acurate and assembling them was simple (you must read and follow instructions or you will have parts on backwards and have to start over). We will buy these again... **Note: there are several versions of this same or similar design, this is the least expensive version and for our money the best.
