Very happy with this shelf. Well built sturdy, easy to assemble
This bookcase looks great after 5 hours we spent putting it together. But after all that, we were so disappointed to find it sways left and right if you touch either side!
We were so excited to receive this to add to our living room in our new home. Only to open the huge box to find it broken!
I bought both this bookcase and the smaller one to sit side by side on one wall. They look very nice and hold many books and decorative items. They were very easy to assemble. I do feel they could be somewhat sturdier as they do 'wobble' a bit. I plan to anchor the larger one to the wall eventually just to be safe (wall anchors were enclosed).
This bookcase is definitely a good buy for what it is. It's very sturdy and stylish. My only negative is the fact that all of the shelves are not adjustable. This is probably why it's so sturdy! Some of the shelves are adjustable but this is on the top so this means I must put the bigger books on top. It does come with wall anchors so this could be a non issue if I wanted to do that.
I am VERY Disappointed with this item. It is pricey but given the description, thought it would be a good investment as I wanted a sturdy unit. I even hired someone to assemble it. But It sways! Before anything was placed on it, it sways!!!! I have bought Target bookshelves for a fraction of the cost and never had any of those sway like this one. I now have to hire yet another person to reenforce this to make it usable. I paid $250 + $30 shipping + $70 freight + $29 taxes - roughly $380 to get this in home. This has now cost me nearly $500 dollars when I add two service people. SOOO not worth it. World Market should be ashamed and I won't order anything from them online again.
We purchased this bookshelf for our new home because our kitchen had an inexplicable open space set back into the wall that had no real purpose - but with this bookcase there, it does! We also have the Verona table and chairs in black, so adding this piece really tied everything together and I feel has completed our kitchen/breakfast area. It's well-made, not too hard to put together and I love that you can move the shelf settings around to allow for more or less space. The only drawback for us was that it rocked forward slightly, but I think that was more to do with our kitchen floor than the bookcase. We put a some felt under the front and fixed that right up. Overall, a great product at a great price.
I am very happy with my purchase of this bookcase/shelving unit. I did a lot of research because I was specifically looking for wide shelves to use as storage for my scrapbooking stuff. This unit fits my needs perfectly. It is tall with five shelves, to hold lots of stuff. Also, each shelf has a lip, or raised edge on the back, which prevents stuff from sliding off the back. And the design of the sides keeps things from sliding out. Perfect for what I was looking for! Thanks, World Market, for making the price very affordable! I feel like I got value for my money.
These are easy to put together. I have used a total of 7 on different jobs. Simple to put together, though it can take a little time. Packaged well and I haven't experienced any damage in transit even though the boxes are very heavy.
