I've actually never written a review for anything but I'm so in love with this piece that I feel compelled to. I had a very specific ideal of what I wanted in my head before I went on a hunt for shelving for my kitchen. I have a rustic industrial style and I needed something wood and metal with an industrial feel. I looked at a lot of different places. The ones at high ends stores were way too expensive and the ones that were reasonably priced just looked cheap. When I saw this shelving online I fell in love but was someone concerned that both the wood and the metal were too light in color. I went into the store to check it out and was pleasantly surprised. It's beautiful! The wood has a dark, rustic feel and the metal is dark and sleek. I'm using it in my kitchen to hold our china, wine, wine glasses and cookbooks.

My husband was really excited about it and said it was the best purchase for our house yet (he usually plays it cool when it comes to decorating!). I've already gotten compliments on it and people keep asking me where I got it. It has a really expensive look to it, but is reasonably priced. I used my 15% off for members coupon, so it was a steal of a deal!

Assembly is easy and straightforward. I actually put it together by myself in about an hour (and that was with putting the shelves in backwards the first time, oops!).

If you're hesitating about this piece - go for it!

Like others, I fell in love with an industrial interior company's version of a similar bookcase, priced at $1,500. Not willing to spend that, I found this one at a favorite store -- World Market -- for a fraction of that and was ecstatic.

Setting it up was easy, if time consuming. But it fits the industrial chic look we're going for.

Until... I bought two and loaded up all of my books -- most, admittedly, heavy reference texts. Today, a few weeks after setting up the bookcase, I noticed one of the shelves was sagging badly and had, in fact, split along a seam. After examining the other shelves, even some full of paperbacks are sagging a bit.

Not one for knickknacks, this is disappointing. I considered figuring out a way to brace the shelves to handle more weight, but they way they're designed prevents that. While I fully expect WM will send us a new shelf for the one that split, I'll need to find another way to store or get rid of some books.

If you are planning to use this to store mostly books, it's a fail. If you expect to fill it with, say, half books and half knick knacks, it may serve you well.

Wonderful bookshelf

Comments about Emerson Shelving:

We purchased the Emerson bookshelf two years ago and it's truly an excellent product. Heavy so we don't worry about it tipping over from all our hardback books. The frame is very stable and does not rock at all. Our decor is somewhat eclectic with a heavy dose of Danish modern, along with a few pre-WWII tables, and a few rustic/industrial look pieces. This Bookshelf fits in very well.

Recommended, but with homework

Comments about Emerson Shelving:

Really liked this item upon finding it online. Was not on display at local store, so bought sight unseen. Not really an issue, but would have been helpful to have seen the lack of finish on the wood shelves.

Assembled easily, all hardware present. Omitted the 'step bar' at the base; didn't really see any practical need for it, and space is an issue in this particular room. (kitchen)

The wood shelves weighed much less than I expected, a light-density lumber was surprising for an item that appears so 'industrial'. Hopefully they hold up well.

The finish on the shelves was also not what I expected; they're stained, but not varnished or top-coated, leaving the pores of the wood open. This will allow dust to settle into the grain, making it difficult to clean. Remedied by applying 3 - 4 coats of dark-colored Bri-wax, lightly buffing with a soft rag between coats.

This was unexpected homework, and took longer to accomplish than the task of actually assembling the entire shelf unit. The wood now looks much better and not so cheap, and will be easier to clean., as well as slightly water-repelling. Really increases the visual appeal, making it look much more expensive.

Would buy again, but only after restocking the Bri-wax first.

Quality has gone done

Comments about Emerson Shelving:

I ordered one of these two years ago and it is perfect. Ordered a second one a month ago and clearly the quality has gone done, probably due to high demand. One of the shelves sags even though there is little on the shelf (two wire baskets). Overall the quality of wood on the second one is nowhere near the first. I am disappointed.

Yes the box is huge, but

Comments about Emerson Shelving:

It's really a gorgeous piece of furniture. I live alone and two stories up, so I had to open the box in my entryway and carry the contents up in about 5 trips, but putting it together was easy. (If I did it again I probably would use a service like Taskrabbit to do it, but it was fine.)

I use it for display of books, pictures and a lot of plants, and it looks great in my small Brooklyn living room. The quality is great, the frame is solid, the wood feels good. And it has character without making me worry about it eventually looking dated.
