Rated 5 out of 5 by Ballardsbyer Great piece of furniture!
This bookcase is perfect. It is actually wood and not particle board or composite. It looks great in my husband's office. The bookcase is not too big and not too small. I am very pleased. The delivery was quick and I am satisfied in every way.

The bookcase is well constructed and exactly as pictured. The rubbed black finish blended well with the other furniture we have in the bonus room. We are very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gwens Classy looking and sturdy.
This piece is in my master bedroom for the overflow of magazines and books and family photos. Looks very nice with other styles of furniture and is solidly made. I paid extra for white glove service and it was well worth it since it needed to be brought up to the second floor and the packing materials were taken away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by esalechick Dual Purpose
I purchased this to use for a tv/media console. It arrived just as promised and in perfect condition. I like the fact that it holds my 55" flat screen but can also be used as a bookcase if my needs change. Great look and quality for the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LauraMD1 This is a sturdy, nice looking book case.
In addition to ordering this low bookcase, I also ordered the Tuscan large center bookcase. The low bookcase is nice looking and very sturdy. I would recommend it.
The large bookcase looks nice, but as a previous reviewer mentioned, the shelves droop in the middle with a full load of books on them. They are not strong enough or well-supported enough to hold a full shelf of books without sagging in the center. The previous reviewer was exactly right about this issue and I should have heeded their advice.

by mc2011 Excellent- Belgian Oak Finish- See pictures!
Product was fully assembled. Looks great in our long hallway entrance. Added a pic of the Belgian oak finish to help everyone get a better idea of what it looks like. If you look at it long enough, theres a slight pink undertone, but it may just be the wall & floor colors in my house bringing it out. Its definitely darker than what this website shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pbm01 Elegant and well-sized.
We selected this bookcase for our master bedroom. It's perfectly sized and the open contruction keeps it from feeling like a large/heavy piece. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PuffyTaco I finally bought it! :-)
For some time I had been looking for a bookcase which could do double duty as a sofa table. This is the one I always came back to, even though it is way "too nice" not to be in full view. The sofa backs up to a passage way and windows to the back porch, so only the top is visible from the living area. I like the open design which doesn't bulk up the space; the height is just right as a sofa table, enabling me to display some finishing touches there, plus provides a place to set a drink, etc. The espresso contrasts well against the warm brown sofa and coordinates with a few other dark pieces here and there. Good to know: it has floor-leveling adjusters on the 4 corners--nice. I did have to use some glue remover to get the white label off the upper back edge, which showed above the sofa back. The quality is very good, and it was delivered assembled, well-packed in a box, and carried to where I needed it by the polite delivery men from the trucking company. I was alerted the day before, and 30 minutes before delivery.
Now, I wonder what practical use I can find for that cardboard box--puppet theatre? SUV cargo liner? Craft area floor protector? Even the rigid packing foam gets repurposed in this house. Fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Imaginor It's perfect in the dining room!
We'd been searching for a sideboard for the dining room, but nothing struck us as "right." This is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrotto Very Solid & Nice Piece
I am very pleased with my bookcase. It is a solid and stable piece and it looks beautiful in our library. The top has room enough for our flat screen TV and the bottom is spacious enough for many books, although I am trying not to stuff it with books as the detail in the back looks quite pretty when the shelves are not packed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by storychick This piece Anchors the room
I love this piece! Because I can see through the piece it doesn't overpower the room with heaviness yet I can hide any wiring running from my TV and allows me flexibility in furnishings and decor of my living room. Couldn't have made a better choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CollegeMom Perfect College Bookcase
I purchased the Bourdonnais Double Bookcase Short for my son's room in a shared college apartment. Because of his space constraints, it was necessary to smart purchase furnishings that could offer dual-purpose. The Bourdonnais Double Bookcase not only provides two 60" shelves for text books, electonic storage and personal items, but, with it's sturdy frame and deep width, it doubles as a table top to support a 50" flat screen televison. The open "X" side supports offers strength and style without adding bulk and crowding to an already small room. The quality craftmanship and contemporary neutral design makes this a beautiful piece of furntiure that he will enjoy past college!
