Sonoma Bookcase is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 100.
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 Versatile storage I live in a small apartment of 525 square feet, so all of my furniture needs to serve multiple purposes. About a year ago, I bought the Sonoma Bookcase and used it as a combination bookshelf and entertainment center (by moving the shelves up and putting my 42” television on it.) It worked great and I got compliments on it all the time! It is airy and open, and I like that I can adjust the shelves. It doesn’t look like it would be able to hold a 42″ flatscreen, but it sure can! A 42” television fits perfectly in this bookcase. My only wish is that ALL of the shelves would have the grooves that lock them onto the frame, because they only have an inch or so of horizontal wiggle room before they become topsy turvy and fall out of the frame.

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 I would buy it again. Amazing. It looks great in my sunroom next to the windows, just like the picture. It was very easy to assemble and I would buy it again. The quality was everything that I had expected Ballards to be. This was my first purchase and very successful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! Very sturdy and well-made. Great design with not all shelves equal width. Easy assembly. Adjustable shelves are a plus too. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-functional for a great price. Product was shipped very quickly, and I was able to assemble it on my own in about 90 minutes. I have a small apartment, and the bookcase does double duty in the dining room as both library and bar. Because the unit is backless, it doesn't take up as much space, visually, as a conventional bookcase might. The only negative comment is that it's taller than I anticipated, but that's my fault for not measuring appropriately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bookcase! Very sturdy. I purchased this product to be utilized as a bakers rack. The shelves are heavy and seem to support a lot of weight. I am thinking about purchasing another one and placing them side by side. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Easy Assembly I read most of the reviews prior to purchasing this product. I dont like to assemble anything, but got so excited when it arrived I put together by myself. Looks great, quality is wonderful as it looks at pictured and is sturdy.
Date published: 2011-10-28
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 Love them! I ordered two of these and we just love them. I like the wood grain and texture of the shelves more than I thought I would. Not too hard to put together but it did take two of us. I think it would be hard to do by yourself. Also make sure the felt pads are on the bottom of the legs before you move it around. One of mine had fallen off and I scratched my floor a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Sonoma Bookcase I have been looking at this bookcase for a while now and finally the right time came to purchase it. I had a friend help me put it together and we did not tighten everything down untill we had it all together (one of the previous reviews suggested this). This design is perfect for my modest sized living room and I had the most fun arranging all my books, pictures and other treasures on it and then changing them all around untill I had it just right. I also put my flat screen on the fixed middle shelf and left out the one above so it fits and looks great. It does not overwhelm my room and the open design displays everything beautifully.

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 This product is sturdy and easy to assemble. I love my Sonoma Bookcase. The assembly was easy. I am impressed with the construction. I love the flexibility it will give. I am currently usung it in my living room. When I get bored, I can move it to my kitchen, hallway, or even my 3 season room. Well worth the money.
