Sonoma Bookcase is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our new study! Great value for the price. Lots of room for books and nic naks. Very solid yet has a nice open feel. Love the adjustable shelves. Compliments wood, metal and stone decor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value - great look The height is terrific and provides great scale to our room. It was fairly simple to put together, is quite sturdy and is an excellent value for the sale price of $349 (or even for the regular price). If you're pleased with how it looks in the catalog, I think you'll be very happy with these shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking piece! I absolutely love this piece of furniture. We got the English cherry version and it's beautiful. Very sturdy and has adjustable feet to assure it will be level no matter where you put it. We have it in our kitchen and looks great....highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice-looking bookcase We were really impressed with the Sonoma Bookcase. Some assembly is required, but it was relatively simple and we had it up within about half an hour. The quality is excellent, and the overall appearance is even better in real life than in the catalog. It is very sturdy as well as polished and elegant-looking. And the open construction allows us to have a large bookcase without overwhelming our small home office. We thought the price was great for what you receive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sonoma Bookcases are perfect! I started looking for bookcases three years ago. I finally found the perfect bookcase at Ballard's. I love my bookcases! I put them in the living room which is small and oddly shaped. The design of the Sonoma bookcases makes the living room appear larger and they give it a great open look, and makes the room feel light. I love that that the lower shelves are wider which give me room to display books and artifacts. The bookcases were easy to put together. I am going to order the smaller Sonomas for other areas in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! The Sonoma Bookcase was on my wish list for a long time! When it went on sale, I was thrilled! Then when it arrived and we put it together, it was beyond what I had was perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds A Lot of Books! This bookshelf is the best! It holds so many books because of its size. But the open design keeps it from overwhelming a small-ish room. Also, the open back lets my red walls show through for a more cohesive look in the library. Putting it together was straightforward. It's big, so it took a little while to assemble, but there were no glitches or surprises. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my new bookshelf! I LOVE my new bookshelf. I ordered and received it within 3 days. It is very easy to put easy in fact, I did it all by myself! I would recommend 2 people put it together, but 1 person can do it if it's a must. I was too excited to wait for help! It is very well made and sturdy. I can't wait to get it decorated and filled with books. I highly recommend this product! My shopping experience with Ballard was exceptional - their customer service was beyond my expectation. I will definitely shop with them again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonoma Bookcase We ordered this piece for it's look and dimensions and we were not disappointed! It was in perfect shape and easy to put together. The wood shelves are a lovely cherry and fit the black iron brackets with ease. We are using this piece for china and glassware in our dining room and have had many compliments. Thank you Ballard for a great first buy from your catalogue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful, well-made, easy assembly I insist on real solid wood because it looks better, holds up better and because I have concerns about outgassing with fiberboard products. I've gotten several pieces from Ballard because they offer good-looking, real solid wood furniture at reasonable prices. For a price equal to or less than something made of mdf, the Sonoma bookcase is a quality piece of furniture that looks great now and, I'm sure, will for years. It also holds a ton and is a versatile piece. I got one for my home office. The top part organizes my work stuff and I got baskets for the larger shelves on the bottom to hold my young son's art supplies. The room looked neater instantly and I decided to get a second one for the living room. It suits my needs now as a bookcase and toy storage (again with baskets) but I can see using it as a media center with a flat screen TV (by removing one of the upper shelves) or in almost any other room. The piece was easy to put together. I was able to do it alone, though it would not be a bad thing to have one other person to help. The only complaints I have are that this very heavy piece was shipped in one box (I had to unpack it at my front door and carry the pieces up the stairs) and that there was so much styrofoam used in packaging. The item arrived in perfect condition, but I wish Ballard and other retailers would find more earth-friendly packing materials! (Styrofoam is not recyclable.) I'm very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonoma Bookcase My expectations were surpassed by the high quality, beautiful materials in this bookcase. The shelving is top quality wood, the ironwork exceptionally sturdy, and the overall look just outstanding. All of the components were labeled well, making assembly easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a perfect display unit. The item was easy to put together. It's height adds to a room with high ceilings. I wish the shelves were not distressed but I'm still using it.
Date published: 2011-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a must have with its open airy design These bookcases are the perfect alternative to the "closed in" features of other designs. It allows for the wall color to show through while displaying favorite items- they provide the exact open and airy design I was looking for. Another Ballard Design winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like a much more expensive unit. Super sturdy I love my new bookcase! Put it together myself in about an hour and a half. I love the open look. Feels very airy despite its large size. The fixed shelves will hold an amazing amount of weight, haven't overloaded the others, so don't know how they would do long-term. Highly recommend this item. I could use it in any room.
Date published: 2012-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid wood and tubular steel, easy to assemble Two of the shelves are fixed and the others can be left in or out. I use it in a secluded dining room wall off the kitchen for appliance and kitchen tool over flow. Might purchase another for my pantry area. Just what I need and meet my hopes for the intended application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile piece The Sonoma bookcase is a nice addition to our Florida room. It was easy to put together by myself. I like that the shelves are adjustable to accommodate anything you may want to display.
Date published: 2012-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as expected! The piece was well represented online, arrived well packaged and on time. I have gotten quite a few compliments on it and would definitely buy again! Assembly was simple and like that the shelves adjust for different 'looks'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous stately bookcase We loved the Sonoma bookcase so much in our office, that we purchased a second one for our daughter's bedroom. It is great with the adjustable shelves to accommodate various books or decor. Comes easy to assembly and looks fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Proportions We were debating between these shelves - we ultimately ordered two to frame the fireplace and mounted tv - and some smaller scale, but much cheaper, ones from another store. We love them! They are gorgeous and open and the wood has a very nice tone that coordinates well with the other wood tones in our home. Would have loved a better "deal", but what can you do? The cross-back is a nice feature too and the black frame is sturdy and made it easy to assemble. Great size and shape, perfect proportions. Overall = recommend.
Date published: 2011-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even more elegant in person! I needed furniture to both hold my stereo and store my textbooks. This unit fit the bill perfectly. My husband had it assembled in an evening. It is sturdy, well-made, and handsome. If offers a great deal of storage without making a small guest room/office look even smaller. The deeper shelves fit a tuner, cd player and speakers with room to spare. It would also hold a small to medium sized AV set, depending on how you set up the adjustable shelves. My only suggestion would be to get a basket or a set of book ends to ensure books not fall off the sides or back of unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look Love this bookcase! Reasonable price, good quality. Love the look. It took a little bit of time to get it put together, but well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Open Shelves We are using two of these bookcases in our breakfast room to augment our kitchen storage. They are just right for displaying our more attractive dishware, fruitbowls, cookbooks, and things like that. We've placed them in front of windows, and they look great without blocking the light. Assembly was fine -- my husband did it on his own. Packaging was great and the bookcases had no damage. The wood is rich-looking and pretty in a dark honey-brown tone. It is mostly smooth, but heavily distressed in places, so be aware of that. The overall look of the bookcases is open and light, but they are sturdy and don't wobble. Their height is really nice -- 7' tall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am thrilled with this piece. It is sturdy, attractive and reasonable to assemble. Looks great and stylish in my hallway and stores a ton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. It's clean and simple and gave just the right balance and function to a small room. It works perfectly for the TV and still gave me space to include some books and personality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect piece for the den We needed a small bookshelf for a TV, books and other items. This fit our needs perfectly. Easy to put together and we get lots of compliments.
