Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Workhorse! I bought this a year or so ago in white. It is simple assembly and very sturdy. It holds a multitude of books and the upper and lower shelves hold various decorative and practical items. I love that it is metal! It allows for more delicate supports without adding visual and actual weight. Another gem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much nicer than a boring rectangular bookcase! This bookshelf met my needs for a sturdy, functional item. I like how it has character in the way the sides are made. The tilted middle shelf is great for seeing book titles. I use the bottom shelf for a row of decorative storage boxes that keep small items stored neatly. The very top is used to display the latest issues of my magazines. That makes them accessible and easy to swap out when new issues arrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable way to create an interesting spot I had a short passageway into my office that needed some interest but I didn't want to obstruct traffic. This was the perfect solution. The look is clean and classic (and nicely transitional for my somewhat eclectic home) and created a nice spot to set a narrow lamp and some decor, baskets on the bottom for magazines and some books in the middle. It's unexpected and I love it - especially considering the affordable price for a piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece for my foyer I needed a table/storage piece for my foyer to store purses, backpacks, school books and shoes. I was looking for one that was open for quick, easy access but that looked nice. That is exactly what I found in this great piece. I bought it in matte black and added the black rubber boot tray that Ballard sells (item# AM817) to the bottom shelf and it fits perfectly and looks fabulous while neatly keeping our shoes organized and off of the floor. The piece's angled shelves work especially well for holding school books and backpacks. The backpacks can be left open for access to the contents without falling over or spilling all over the place. The Librarie Bookshelf is made of iron so it is very sturdy and looks more expensive than it is. It also was easy to assemble, I did it by myself in about 30 minutes. I would absolutely recommend this piece (as well as the rubber boot tray) to anyone. Thank you, Ballard Designs, for offering tasteful, high-end products at affordable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Search No More for a Stylish Bookcase I LOVE my librarie bookshelf; it has an Old World feeling, yet would fit in any decor. It is sturdy yet beautiful and is a great way to display my books. I added two matching baskets on the bottom shelf to store magazines, and now I love my new reading 'nook'! Thanks, Ballard, for your great sense of style at a very affordable price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Sturdy I literally just finished assembling this bookshelf and had to immediately write a review. This product exceeds my expectations. It is solid, sturdy and very stylish. It took me about 20 minutes to assemble it. I love that all the tools were included... just a few bolts and an allen wrench. It couldn't have been easier. I am using it as one of the bedside tables in my guest room. I wanted something different. This fits the bill perfectly. I put a lamp and some picture frames on the top shelf. The middle area is holding rolled towels and a few books. On the bottom shelf, I put a few other decorations that give it a vintage look. Don't hesitate to make this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! Love this little bookshelf, it is very versitile! The painted surface treatment has a texture, so you have to vacuum it to dust, but that is really not a problem! Went together easily, and is very stout and sturdy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent style and quality! My son has lots of heavy reference books, and we were looking for a bookshelf that could handle the weight. The slated shelf also holds books at the best angle for library worthy volumes. I wanted something attractive. Ballard hit the mark for quality and style with the Librarie Bookshelf! We are very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely addition to my bedroom This bookshelf was on sale in the past year for a rock bottom price and I regretted not buying it. I wanted a bookshelf for my bedroom that would coordinate with my vintage iron bed and I kept coming back to the Librarie Bookshelf. It was easy to put together and only took an hour to do by myself. It is a great looking piece - substantial and solid and fits perfectly with my bedroom decor. I totally trust Ballard for its quality and selection. I have been extremely happy with every purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the piece, not really the finish This is a great piece that is holding all of my cookbooks. I love how easy it was to put together, and the look of it, but not sure if I like the finish. We'll see what it looks like in a year. Maybe I will repaint it....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I'm very happy with this product. Visually pleasing, well made and easy to assemble. It's perfect for our family room. I would imagine it would go well with most decor/furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as expected The bookshelf is just as expected, looks exactly like the picture. Is heavy and sturdy, holds lots of books in my grandson's room. Don't expect to put it together by yourself , it takes two! But everything fit together perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! This is perfect size, sturdy, nice clean lines and durable matte finish that even in black does not show the dust. I use it under a window in my kitchen; plants etc on top, wine and bread in v-shelf (lay a square basket in there and it will hold anything), dishware on bottom. It's lovely! Easy to assemble too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bookcase This bookcase is wonderful. Sturdy, well-constructed and a very attractive design. I especially like the way the slanted shelf displays the books, making it easy to locate the one I want. I keep it in my study next to my desk for easy access to frequently used books. At the sale price, it was a real bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unusual & affordable Got this shelf in white for my office. I looked at many companies and decided on this shelf because it's unusual, the perfect size & affordable (got it on sale). Especially love that it is metal! This wll NOT be a piece that gets donated 20 years from now. This is a piece you keep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful addition! I can be a tough critic when it comes to furniture. This piece was perfect for my small study. It was easy to assemble and seems to be very sturdy. It added a certain panache to the room and is exactly as I pictured it from the on line photo. Do not hesitate. This one is a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty, sturdy, and versatile I needed a cookbook shelf in my kitchen that would also act as storage, and this piece suited my needs perfectly. The dimensions were just right for my space, and its style and design fit the eclectic mood of my kitchen. It's solid and very well-constructed, and fits all my cookbooks. Although it requires assembly, the directions for assembly are straightforward. It took me about an hour to put together by myself. For two people, it would take considerably less time. Other reviewers have noted that the powder-coated finish is just slightly rough, which makes it a bit difficult to clean with a wet cloth. That's true. A standard sponge or microfiber cloth is not a good choice for cleaning this, because the fibers will catch a little on the surface. But I use a duster that attracts dust with static electricity to clean it, as well as the floor underneath it, in just a few seconds. No muss, no fuss. I would think that a vinegar/water solution on smooth T-shirt cloth might also do well to clean up any spots. Finally, be aware that this is a powder-coated METAL bookshelf--if you expect it to be wood, do not order! But if it were made of wood it would cost more than twice as much. I actually like the fact that it is metal. I ordered it in white, but in the future, if I change my color scheme, I won't think twice about painting it. If you want something for your books that's pretty and elegant, that offers additional storage, and that's functional, sturdy, and cost-effective, this is a great piece at a great price. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in any room I bought this bookshelf for a room that I had in mind but it looks great in every room and now I don't know where to use it! It is very functional and was easy to put together. Plenty of room for books and decor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much larger and sturdier than I thought I am thrilled with this bookshelf which I purchased for my guest room. It was very easy to assemble and I did it while watching an episode of "Love It or List It" on HGTV. For some reason, I thought it would be light weight and smaller. But it is heavy and made of thick metal which makes is quite substantial. I purchased it in white. I am very impressed and happy with this addition to my guest room. It will contain great "house guest" books and magazines.
