Great shelf, great price!

from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

We have four of these, and have moved them three times (from old apartment to new apartment to newer apartment) over the past five years, and they have held up very well. They're a godsend in terms of space, because the shelves are so strong you can stack books on top of books in between shelves, so you can fill it up completely and even stack things on top, and there's never any concern about anything collapsing! I wouldn't be without these shelves, and for this price, plus the free shipping, it really is an unbeatable deal. Recommended!

Nice Shelf

from United States – Verified Buyer

This product came in damaged. Both long side pieces were cracked down the middle. I ordered them for their website and in about a week they came in. This time, however, both pieces were jammed on the corners of one end and kind of smashed down or broken out there. I ordered again and in about another week, they came in and were well packaged and were fine. Once I got good parts and put this together I found it to be a very nice and sturdy shelf. It is well made with screws and dowels in the static shelves. The plastic caps to cover the screws were easy to push on. Shelves had finish on both sides where it would show and the backing was white on the side that showed. It was also quite easy for one person to put together.

Nice and sturdy bookcase

from Capitol heights, MD – Verified Buyer

This is a nice and sturdy bookcase for the price that I paid. The assembly was pretty easy that I did it only by myself. It really adds beauty to my dining room as well as it organized. I actually order another one to add for more organization. It gives more space to my dining room after organizing the things in there. All in all I ordered 5 bookcases of this brand - 2 for my living room (Dark Cherry), 2 for my dining room (Morgan Cherry) and 1 for my bathroom (Morgan Cherry-4 shelves) for organization. Highly recommended!

Great shelf

from Bronson, FL – Verified Buyer

I ordered this for my bedroom as the color matches the rest of my furniture. It was inexpensive and fit the measurements I needed as well. It was easy to put together, I did it myself as my husband was out of town and it looks great. It's sturdy and I like the idea of being able to adjust the shelves. I would recommend this to anyone.

Great product

from Upper Marlboro, MD – Verified Buyer

I wanted a good quality, yet affordable bookcase and that is exactly what I got. When it arrived, it had a lot of pieces to put together which I enjoyed doing, and the instruction manual was easy to follow. Everyone commented on how lovely it was. The reason it did not get a 5 star was because the delivery person just left it outside my home and it was extremely heavy to bring in. He did not even knock or ring the door bell as I watched from my window. Next i knew, he drove off! i'm sure AllModern could do better with their delivery services.

from Castaic, CA – Verified Buyer

This is a very high quality bookshelf for the price. We compared it to others in this price range and found the quality on this one to be outstanding. I worked in the construction industry for a long time and I pay particular attention to craftsmanship. I could see the design was very good, solid, and expertly cut. Most bookshelves in this price range are two- piece which makes them weak. This one is great and I highly recommend it for the price.

from Loma Linda, CA – Verified Buyer

This is a great bookcase! Arrived early, my husband assembled it, no missing pieces or damage.Leaving a house for an apartment to be near our Grandson was hard, but I still brought some leather covered heavy books.This case displays them well. Fits snugly against the wall, I am pleased with the case and the price.

Great price, good quality

from Santa Fe, NM – Verified Buyer

This is one of three Axess bookcases I've bought recently that I chose for the style and price. The assembly was easy and the shelves are sturdy - ideal for storage in my craft room. I will mention that the plastic clips that support the shelves are very smooth and so allow the shelf to slide out too easily if it's not weighted down. Also, the narrow facing piece at the top of the bookcase was difficult to tighten and is a bit wobbly. Not a problem though, as it's just for looks and isn't weight-bearing. I'm very pleased with the bookcases because I didn't have to spend a lot for functional storage that's decent-looking.

Looks great and was easy to construct

from Washington DC – Verified Buyer

Bought this product based on reviews and because it happened to be on sale. I wanted two tall bookcases in my living room but was not looking for something extremely expensive or with too many extra decorative details. This was the perfect option - simple, the right size, and less than $100. My fiance was able to construct both bookcases in the span of 4 hours. He did use wood glue to reinforce the shelves and the backing is not especially sturdy but I feel we got a great value for what we paid. I plan to purchase another one in the future for wall-to-wall bookcases!

Love my bookshelf!..

from Cleveland, MS – Verified Buyer

Bookshelf arrived promptly! It was very easy to put together and is extremely sturdy and heavy! Only thing I would suggest is when you are putting the back cardboard on, make sure you nail every two inches or so. If not, you can see gaps along the boards! Other than that, it was just what I needed and with my rewards points, barely cost me anything!
