Modern decorative shelf perfect as a room divider
Sayre from Princeton, NJ – Verified Buyer
I have been looking for a room divider for our large master bedroom for a while. This shelf really seems to fit the bill in terms of design and size, comments from other reviewers also helped me to take the plunge. I bought two white ones, which were assembled by a 16-year old teenager correctly, so it cannot be too hard. I love the end results of the shelves separating the sleeping quarter from the lounge quarter, and the unique layout of the shelves added style and charm to the room, particularly after I placed trailing plants, colorful vacation photo books and beautiful pots in or above. The shelves are made with good quality, however it is a little bit wobbly on the carpeted floor. The price is also good, my only gripe is the lousy white stickers used to cover the screw holes which is not a very intelligent idea, worse yet some stickers do not stick very well and constantly peel off at the edge.

I got the bookcase in the black finish. The shapes of the shelves in that finish make this a visually striking piece. The bookcase is large enough to feel substantial in the room. I positioned it vertically, but I may get a second one to put next to the first one horizontally underneath an adjacent window for an almost built-in look. The shelves make it easy to set stacks of books alongside decorative items and not look cluttered. I was pleased that I was able to fit 2 smaller bookshelves' worth of books, plus several framed photos and some souvenirs from travels, all without having to cram the space.
Real looker, solid construction!

Bought two of these to sit horizontal, one on each side of the tv stand in a bonus room with low ceilings. Assembly was simple, all of the parts fit together perfectly. The varying sizes of openings create a modern, unique way to display books, photo frames, and other knick-knacks! I like the vinyl stickers supplied to hide the assembly holes as they have grain that can be aligned with the grain patterns of the wood and go on flush. This is better than the typical plastic inserts some of these kits are supplied with.
Excellent Book case!
Christine from Valencia, CA – Verified Buyer
This bookcase is perfect and just what I needed for my living room. I have it vertical in my room. I am not sure why the picture would suggest it be used horizontal. This is great to display my treasures from all my travels. It is so pleasing to have the variety of shelves and heights rather than a standard bookcase. I have received many compliments. Also, it was very easy to put together. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. Just be sure to lay out the pieces first and go step-by-step. Simple for one person to put together in less than an hour. Amazing value for the price.
Stephanie from Orting, WA
Wanted to fill up 2 niches beside the fireplace. Got the white bookcases and love the way they look! We didn't trust outselves to set them up so we had our handyman do it. Didn't take him too long and he said it was fun. He did reverse 2 of the shelves so be aware of that. There is a different top and bottom to the shelves. The compartments are a good size to allow for pottery, baskets and all sorts of goodies. I don't plan on using them for books.
My new favorite piece of furniture
BH from Nebraska – Verified Buyer
I bought the white unit to match the molding in my living room. The shelves are one inch thick and completely finished on all visible edges, with a pattern that looks like natural wood-grain that has been painted. My son put it together and said, "Holy over-engineering!" which translates to, "Each shelf is constructed to be load-bearing." Check the specs for weight limits, but I loaded it up with all my photo albums and it looks amazing!
A really unique book case
Matthew from Bismarck, ND
This is a neat book case - especially for the price. I've always liked the tetris-looking cases, but most cost thousands. Now, this is of course not a hardwood case, like those. But it looks nice. Be ready to spend some addition time in assembly than a normal book case. It's also best to have a second person as sometimes you have to hold a piece and attach another with all the right angles. Also be aware that with all the funky corners, you won't be able to place nearly the same number of books as you would on a strait book case. Even so, it's one of my favorite pieces I found this past year.
Jeri from Edwardsville, IL – Verified Buyer
I bought this as a horizontal bookcase to hold a few books, some larger collectibles, etc. It is the perfect height and size and best of all, was easy for me to assemble....and I am a lady who qualifies for social security! I have had so many compliments on it! It arrived well boxed with lots of protective wrapping to keep any parts from being damaged.
Nice for the price
Laurie from New York, NY
I really like that this bookcase can be flipped or turned in any direction. One review mentions the poor quality of the little circular stickers that are meant to hide the screws. It is true. However, I placed mine vertically and suddenly realized that these stickers shouldn't be stuck to the part of the shelf where you're placing articles. Flip it so they're on the underbelly of each shelf & you won't see them at all.
Great book case.
Vitaliy from Glendale, NY – Verified Buyer
Fairly easy to assemble took me less then 45 min by myself to put this thing together. Much better quality then IKEA furniture. I especially liked how clearly everything is labeled with very good instructions. I would definately buy it again and recommend this to anyone looking for a funky book case or table. One gripe is the fact that they give you stickers to cover up screw hole instead of plastic caps. C'mone throw some caps in there for gods sake.
