Librarie Bookshelf is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 162.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, qualities great, don't hesitate to buy. I searched other places to make sure I was getting the best deal. I found it elsewhere and cheaper but in wood. I knew the wood would eventually chip and it did not seem to be colored properly. The metal one from Ballard Design was excellent. I have it in my living room below the TV. I placed all my different magazines in the second level facing out, it looks great and I can find the magazine I want from across the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product does exactly what I hoped it would do. I noticed this bookcase in the catalogue long before I purchased it. I thought long and hard about it and decided that it might work as a bedside table/bookcase in a narrow space. And it does. The assembly was tricky as each shelf had to be tightened carefully to keep the case in square, but I did it. I wish the top shelf deminsions had been listed and then I would have purchased it long before I did. A lamp fits nicely on it and I love being able to keep lots of books in it with the spines visible. The bottom shelf is perfect for magazines and the whole piece tucks behind a chair next to my bed. This is a great bookcase and I am very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Classic. I bought 4 of these to line a hallway. Assembly was easy, parts fit together perfectly and easily. Allen wrench was included in purchase. They are beautiful and classic in appearance. Very functional. Note that books put on bottom shelf need to be laid down. Not much clearance under the shelf above. I put my coffee table books there and they are attractively displayed. These are high quality, priced economically. I am VERY satisfied with my bookshelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't be more pleased! As others have done, I bought this shelf to store my cookbooks in my kitchen. It has been perfect-- for both the space and the purpose! I couldn't be more pleased. It took me about 30 minutes to assemble-by myself-- not too difficult! Thank you, Ballard Designs, for another great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Great piece. I was able to assemble by myself in only 20 minutes. I'm using it as a nightstand and it is the perfect size to balance our king size bed. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, easy to assemble and great quality functional, durable and I get tons of compliments. This item was easy to assemble with clear instructions. Love the metal finish as I like to mix wood and other types of material so this was perfect. Packaged very nice so all pieces were protected and packed - great piece for everyday living.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile We're currently using the shelf as a shoe/boot rack in our entry. It's practical and attractive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are strong and beautiful bookshelves. It took a little doing to put them together (because I am all thumbs when it comes to this sort of thing.) But once I got them assembled and the books in them they were quite beautiful. Books that were once scattered on tables and even the floor are now in convenient reach. Thanks for offering them at such a low price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The librarie bookshelf is perfect for the space I needed to put it in. It is heavy duty and was easy too assemble. My husband and I put it together. I think having a second person expedites the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the library bookshelf. The bookshelf is exactly as pictured. I have placed it in my study and it looks PERFECT. Easy assembly, but requires two people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bookshelf; great value! After buying the librarie bookshelf in black approx a year ago, I thought of so many uses for it that I recently bought a second. It's an attractive piece, with a style that looks just as "at home" in a kitchen or bedroom as in a library, office or living room. I like the two shelves end-to-end in our long hallway; they look great back-to-back in the library. My family room sofa is not against the wall, and the librarie bookshelves also work well end-to-end as a sofa table. Right now, I am using one in each of two guest bedrooms as nightstands with recent books/magazines, some decorative objects, a water carafe, etc. Of course, they're also great in a home office or kitchen. I should mention that I had glass cut for the tops of these bookshelves because I find it helps me to clean them more easily, but that's just my personal preference. The assembly is quick/easy for one individual. I've had absolutely no problem with the finish scratching. These bookshelves are strong and will hold quite a bit of weight. The cross-brace design is not only attractive but it eliminates any "wobble" or "swaying". It's just a great, versatile and hard-working piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great way to show off your books I use this bookshelf in my kitchen to display my cookbook collection. It is quite sturdy, and the power-coated finish doesn't show smudges. My only quibble is that because the upper shelf is slanted, the lower shelf has limited clearance (about 6 inches).
Date published: 2012-10-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than described When I read that the bookshelf was metal, I was hesitant to purchase it. However, it looks great in my living room. I use it as an end table with a lamp on top and it stores all of my child's books and toys on the shelf. It couldn't be a better product for this! It keeps everything nice and organized and off the floor. Thanks Ballard for another great piece of furniture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice storage I love it. Looks great by the door in my Florida room. You can store shoes, books and even put decorations on top. I almost need another one for my outside clutter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Style and Function The open design keeps the piece from looking heavy and the angled middle shelf makes it easy to read book titles without crouching over. The angled shelf also offers a great way to open a pretty design book for a visual punch. The Librarie Bookcase arrived quickly, without any damage and was easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to a home office The librarie bookshelf is a great piece for our home office. I got it in black, which went nicely with our wood desk. I have a printer on the bottom shelf, which fits very well. I am quite pleased with the look of the bookshelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Easy and quick assembly.....well constructed....very nicely finished ( I chose the black). I'm using it in my kitchen to hold all my cookbooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks as fabulous as it does in the catalog photos! I put this in my guest room and it really has made a big difference. I have organized some things onto it, added books on the middle shelf, and added some decorative items. I feel like I did a good thing... thanks Ballard Designs!
Date published: 2012-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was perfect for us. The bookshelf is attractive and my book titles are easy to read because of the shelf angle. The bookshelf is sturdy and its legs have a hard plastic cover on the bottom to protect wood floors, which I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect piece for my space! I needed something by the front door where we can drop the keys, set the phones down on, keep a few books that don't fit on any of the other bookcases and stash a few extra shoes underneath...this is just right! There's room for lots of practical things and even a few decorative objects on top. I highly recommend this (and it was easy to put together...I did it myself and I am not a handy person!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Table for displaying books with extra shelf Very sturdy and fits into almost any casual decor - mine is in the living room for books beside a chair. I have purchased quite a few items from Ballard Designs and have never been disappointed with any of them. They have arrived in great condition, been easy to put together (if necessary) and lived up to their catalog or online descriptions and as always a great price for the bargain shopper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, excellent value The Librarie Bookshelf arrived in good time, in excellent shape, was easy to assemble from good instructions, and now holds the collection of books for which it was purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and functional!! I would give this product a five because of it's functionality and good looks. I love the unique design and it is an asset in my living room as a sofa table/bookcase. I also use the top shelf as a place to put keys and mail. Would buy again!!!!! Looks more expensive than it is!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and Functional I love the look of this bookcase. It would compliment any style and work in a variety of rooms. It has space for a lamp on top or perhaps a plant not to mention how attractive it is with books. Service was excellent as was the special price. Thank you, Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A handome and functional book shelf! I love the design of this book shelf! It is practical and space efficient, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended My husband is a clutter bug and he loves to read in his personal corner. This sturdy, timeless, attractive 3 level shelf tidied up that corner nicely! Photos and nic nacks on the top shelf, books in the center and magazines and newspapers on the bottom. PERFECT! It was easy to put together and is certain to last our lifetime. Couldn't have asked for a better design or higher quality shelf to meet my need.
