    Customer comments about Elton 72h 70x16 Bookcase:

    We thought long and hard about spending the money on this piece but do not regret our decision as this bookcase is just right and will last us years to come. We placed it in a spare bedroom and use it to hold books and decorations. It immediately made the room look more hip and put together. The bookcase is pretty large and it came pre-assembled which means it couldn't fit through our door and had to be taken apart to get inside and will have to be taken apart once again if we ever move. t!

      I use this bookcase for heavy art books, large size albums. This is very well constructed, and taking heavy books beautifully. I also like its linear design. It maintains the clean look even with various height of books. I'm very happy with my Elton!

        Great delivery. They took apart the shelves to get them upstairs and then reassembled them.

        Customer comments about Elton 72h 70x16 Bookcase:

        I was looking for a bookshelf that would help to organize the mass of books I have, as well as some decor, pictures and magazines. I looked everywhere and when I went to Room & Board, took my time looking at all the bookshelves only to walk up on this one and know immediately it was what I was looking for. Great for a large wall, can be used as a bookshelf only, combo bookshelf/decor/pictures, or could even use in the kitchen to hold dishes and large serve ware if you like the "exposed" look for your kitchen. This piece will be a permanent item in house; it's very versatile and sleek.

          We have a large collection of glass and needed more display space. This open design catches the light and the glass is highlighted. We did add a light under some of the shelves.

            I eyed this bookshelf for over 2 years before I finally got it, and I'm so glad I did! I was initially hesitant because of the cost, but the construction and finish (I chose walnut with black frame) are top quality. I've had this piece for about 6 months, and every time I look at it, it makes me smile.

            The shelves are fixed, but that's not a problem---there's ample room on each shelf, and they are fairly deep.

            Delivery guys were right on time, at the very beginning of the 2 hour delivery window, and were professional and courteous.

            Overall, a fantastic product and buying experience.

            I love these shelves. they really pick up my room and give my mid-century ranch an updated look. I have two sets of the shelves next to each other. one minor problem is that the ends of the shelves don't match exactly I'm trying to figure out what to do about that -- dowel or something.... if you have ideas, let me know

              I love this piece...as it needed to be on carpet, I was concerned it might be a bit wobbly, but even without books and weighted items, the unit was very secure in place. Load on 100 pounds of books and stuff and it's like a tank. Plus the design is super cool, contemporary chic!!! A+++

                  These bookcases are even better than the photos. We absolutely love them. We purchased two in the walnut and stainless steel and I am so happy we did. They arrived pretty quickly and were set up easily by R&B. They make quite a statement in the room and I cannot stop going into the room just to admire them. Well worth the investment.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Very prompt delivery and excellent customer service.
