Librarie Bookshelf is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 162.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is a terrific sturdy piece-just what I needed I have hundreds of design magazines that I can not throw away. I have them piled on these library book shelves with no problem. It is rock solid. I am VERY very happy with this item

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 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 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.

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.

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 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!

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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a small space!!! I have a small office space and lots of books and this fit perfectly!!!! I was very impressed with the design and construction. The price was very reasonable-it looks like a much more expensive piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shelf This shelf was exactly what I was looking for in my family room! The description and picture resembles the actual product. Great quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & elegant bookcase Solid & elegant bookcase. It really holds as much weight as we put on it including large picture books. All sizes can be accommodated. We did spray with matte polyurethane based on other reviews and propensity to scratch easily. Any small scratches don't show anyway as it is full of books! It fits into small spaces very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bookshelf for people transitioning to e-books It's hard to lose all my physical books. Now I don't keep as many, so I need a smaller place to keep them. This is a high-quality, well-designed way to do that. The bookshelf is easy to assemble. It's very stylish for almost any decor. I would definitely recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable This is exactly what I wanted. A small-sized bookcase to keep the reading material in a reading nook area off the floor. It's interesting visually and fairly easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and handsome After a long search for the perfect bookshelf to fill a narrow nook behind our door, I found this piece. I appreciate that it is of substantial construction but does not appear bulky. I am very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! I purchased two of these bookcases to use side by side on a large wall. They look fantasic with my existing antique furniture and are stylish without being overwhelming for the space. The instructions are clear and bookcases easy to assemble. This is my second furniture purchase from Ballard and I have not been disappointed by either one!

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 love it! this bookshelf is beautiful and sturdy. I love that it is not wood because my 3 year old can't ruin it! We put it together in about 10 minutes and all of the pieces were labeled which helped a lot!

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 Exceeded my expectations! I loved the clean design of this piece, but was concerned that it might not be strong enough for the use I had in mind - that of holding all of my big and heavy cookbooks on its slanted shelf. I'm happy to report that it took the full load of books with no problem. It's really sturdy, and I'm really pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This table filled an entry way need for a small front room. I had been looking for some time for an inexpensive but nice piece of furniture to place in a small entry way to house all those things you walk in the front door with. This table created the perfect "landing zone" for our family. We put keys in a tray and purses on top, backpacks and library items to return in the "book" shelf and baskets on the bottom shelf hold misc. items, catalogs, and mail to sort through. I would love to have one in the kitchen area to hold cook books and shopping flyers/coupons and more. This is a great organizational tool for our home. It was easily put together too.

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!
