shipped all broken parts.

I received so many broken parts of this bookshelf.
They are really big and heavy, so I am afraid not easy to return and take long time to replace it. So disappointing.

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

I purchased the Augustus Bookcase for my office to merchandise retail product and I am extremely thrilled with the elegance this piece added to both the office and the look of the product. It has an English style to it and the coloring of the wood will match several hues of darker woods. Well worth the price.

Beautiful for the price, has some issues with the quality

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

We purchased 2. Built the first one with some issues. One issue we ran in to was that the bottom piece on one side did not fit well. We were able to add additional screws to put together, the existing screw holes did not meet as it should. I noticed another review that had the same problem.
After that we added the backing on without issue and moved to putting the shelving in. With the shelves, one side met up fine and the other set of shelves were about 1 inch off each shelf. Unfortunately there was no way to work with this. We called our local store and they are taking back the bookshelf, they've ordered a replacement. Hopeful this will be an isolated issue.

Just what we were looking for

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

I ordered 2 of the bookcases and 1 ladder. They are gorgeous in my husbands home office! They seem very sturdy - love the color - its darker than in picture but looks so rich. They do take some assembly and you need 2 people to stand them up - my husband put them together in about 2 hours each. One of the bookcases had a molding piece that came off but he was able to clamp and glue it and World Market gave us a little discount for doing it.
The bookcases arrived very quickly - actually almost a week early!
We love them so much we just ordered a third one! They will now cover a whole office wall perfectly!! I highly recommend!

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

Ordered two bookcases. One arrived damaged.
Bookcases have a nice style, look good, but are cheaply made. If I knew I would not have ordered two. The IKEA bookcases they are replacing have thicker shelving and 1/2 the cost.
If you just want the style, and can afford the price, then these are ok. But I needed (and expected) durability as I plan on really using these for many books.
As far as shipping- I could not easily get status updates and it arrived without a call ahead on a day I did not expect.
These are going in a room with the Galvin cafeteria table (which really is a solid and sturdy product) to make a home "library" / "school" room.

Awful experience building this product

By

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

Does not bode well then step one cannot be completed as the holes in the floor and side panels do not align up. Also, the product is broken down the fiberboard side where the back panel sheet is expected to slide into place.
Now I have got to figure out how to re-package and return this huge/broken product. Will need to rent another truck ... again.

Please note that I have purchased a lot of products from this store in the past 6 years. This is the first bad product experience I have had.

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

I have been looking at this bookcase for over a year and finally bought it. Absolutely beautiful! High quality materials. Was easy to put together, my boyfriend did it by himself in about an hour. If you do in-store pickup you will definitely need a truck-- the longer of the two boxes is almost 8 feet long. Love it!

Poorly Made Not as Advertised

By

Comments about Espresso Augustus Library Bookshelf:

I purchased two Augustus bookshelves. One has no issues the other was split down the sides of both side panels exposes wood composite and not solid wood as advertised in the product guide. Went through some hoops but was able to locate a replacement only to discover this one was also defective. The side panels were not secured within their frame and the wood bar used to screw the sides to the bottom were visibly off by 1/4 of an inch which prevents the two pieces from being attached..

I will be calling the store I purchased the unit from and seeing what recourse I have. Given the price point of these units the craftsmanship is junk. I've never had this set of problem with World Market furniture before and am extremely disappointed. If we could disassemble the first unit, I'd return them both and insist on a refund.
