Love this book shelve! I was hesitant to spend this much on such a small piece of furniture, but the quality and design is amazing! It adds a designer feel to the room and I have received many compliments.
great storage and accent piece

I originally purchased this to use as a bedside table but realized too late I didnt pay attention to the measurements. I discovered when it arrived that it is too high for that purpose (at least for me). So I use it as a storage cabinet (which is what its intended I suppose) beside my traditional laptop desk for which I use a Ghost Chair and it looks absolutely great. This piece is a lot heavier than I expected, is really well made, and looks like it will last forever. I imagine it working well most anywhere in the house. Definitely a worthwhile buy.
Exactly what I wanted!

I use this table as a bedside table. Visually it does not take up much space, but the piece feels substantial. The quality is excellent. So glad I splurged!
