Durham Short Bookcase 4.9 5 19 19
Quality piece Received the product promptly. It was very well packaged. You may need assistance in assembling as the shelves are very sturdy and heavy. Overall, this is a great addition to my home. June 30, 2014
Quality materials I looked for at least a year for the perfect piece to place at the bottom of my stairs. This bookcase is the right size and the materials are great! Some easy assembly, but very high quality materials. January 10, 2014
I'm so glad I went with this little bookcase. We had our flat screen TV mounted on the wall so I needed a small bookcase to go under it to hold the cable box. This was the perfect little shelf to do the job. It is very heavy and sturdy. As a matter of fact I had to take it from the box and carry it piece by piece up the stairs because of the weight. It was easy to assemble and nice looking with the rest of my decor. A very good choice! May 31, 2013
Great piece for the money! Purchased this piece to fit in a small area in my kitchen. I've been looking for something with an "industrial" look, but didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars....This looks great and fits perfectly! I liked it so much, I then bought the coffee table! March 29, 2013
A simple sturdy minimalist bookcase. I needed a sturdy affordable bookcase to hold heavy objects other than books that was versatile enough to be used in different rooms/decors as needed. This minimalist piece fits perfectly. The metal frame and thick shelves contibute the strength, and the shelves being screwed to the frame give the rigidity. Strong and easy to assemble. February 12, 2013
Solid and sturdy shelving. I was very impressed by the quality of this bookcase. The shelving is wide and solid making this a very sturdy piece of furniture. The three shelves took care of my storages needs with room to spare. February 3, 2013
The bookcase blends well in any decor. I was pleasantly surprised how well the bookcase blended with our traditional decor. It would have been helpful had it arrived more assembled than it did. February 3, 2013
Great sturdy shelf - beware the package This is a wonderful bookshelf at a great price. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the packaging. The bookshelf arrived undamaged, but was packed with thin, flimsy, stryofoam sheeting that literally disintegrated into hundreds of tiny fragments of foam that stuck (static cling) to every surface of the bookcase, my floor, clothes, etc. Cleaning up the mess detracted from my initial delight with the purchase, but I'm over it, and would recommend the product. February 1, 2013
Perfect size I am so happy with my bookcase. It was very easy to put together and very sturdy. It looks great, holds plenty and doesn't take up too much floor space. January 25, 2013
Better than advertised. So impressed with the quality and ease of assembly. No husband required!! Great industrial look for a great price. July 14, 2012
Good looking, sturdy, easy assembly Nice looking and sturdy, we use the bookcase as all-purpose shelving in our utility room. Shelves are well spaced. This book case is second piece we purchased in 'Durham' style; rectangular end table just as nice. July 11, 2012
Style galore The bookcase is so stylish, the rough finish of the wood is exactly as described, and it is solid and good-looking. We couldn't be more pleased. March 7, 2012
Versatile bookcase for many After looking and looking for a small but highly useful bookcase for our living room, I am thrilled I found this one. Our decor leans towards modern, with mid-century pieces thrown in, and I wanted to include a more industrial--but not too rough-hewn or "country"--bookcase to balance things out. This is an adaptable transition bookcase that could go in a traditional or a modern home. It could work in a boys room, adult bedroom, entryway, or even function as a sideboard in a dining room. Very happy with this purchase. January 10, 2012
Easy to assemble. The bookcase was easy to assemble and looks great. October 21, 2011
Great looking and well made If you are looking for a strong rustic bookcase that is not too tall, this is a great one. Very easy to put together and strong! I ordered two for bedside bookcases for my sons room. October 19, 2011
