    Customer comments about Slim 34w 15d 72h Bookcase:

    Looks very attractive, yet for close to $500, I'd expect a product that had passed a quality control check. The bookcase wobbles, the finish is scratched off in one area, and the top shelf is pretty bent. I expect a lot more from this place. A new one should arrive in a couple of weeks, and we hope to have a better experience.

    Customer comments about Slim 42w 15d 72h Bookcase:

    All my other R&B pieces are wood and I love them but they can only take so much abuse. With our first child coming I wanted the durability of steel, yet minimal design with a bit of style. This is the best shelf I've ever owned. I literally have 100 pounds of books anchoring the first two shelves. No warping whatsoever. Super strong and not wobbly. What, my kid spilled a bunch of juice on it? No problem. She hurled a heavy toy at it? No nicks or scratches on the thick enamel paint. And then there's the price - what a value! This thing will literally last forever unless I toss it off a cliff by accident. Just remember parents out there: always properly secure your shelves to the wall to avoid catastrophes.

    It is a great piece and I really like it. An investment I will have for the rest of my life that is very versatile. After taking it up the stairs after purchase, it seems to have a wobble, and the paint scratches pretty easily.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Very good service. Everything felt very easy and accomodating. Intelligent and thoughtful interactions at every contact point. Never had an easier purchasing interaction.

      Customer comments about Slim 24w 15d 72h Bookcase:

      The height, and sleek styling of these bookcases give me ample room to display and store my items. The white powdercoat is durable and give a really light appearance to what is actually a great amount of storage. I have 3 of them and you would never know I am getting 6 feet of open storage with these. Also, I LOVE that the majority of the piece is devoted to the surface area for storage with sturdy steel framing that can take a good amount of weight from books, albums and some decorative.

        Customer comments about Slim 34w 15d 72h Bookcase:

        We bought two identify bookshelves in yellow. The website is true to color. However, the construction is poor and wobbly. The metal used is quite thin, and thus these book cases are not super stable. We are unsure what to do. We don't want to wait so long for new book cases and don't have time to find replacements. For the price we paid for these basic bookshelves, we expected sturdy quality. Wife is pregnant and right now we are unsure what to do. I would not order them again at this price point. Positively, we do like the bright color pop a lot.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Bookshelf was clearly wobbly/uneven, but delivery folks just delivered as is.

        Customer comments about Slim 15w 15d 72h Bookcase:

        My wife and I paid up and waited for the 2 taupe versions of this bookshelf because the finish better matched the aesthetic of the rest of our condo. We were concerned at first that they may be uneven or would wobble when full, but they are perfectly balanced and can contain significant amounts of weight. We've placed our cable box, DVD player, picture frames, books and other decorative items throughout. They're light enough that they're not obtrusive but sturdy enough to store quite a bit - very pleased with the product!

          Really nice small scale storage solution, used it in my kitchen for glasses plates and cookware. The frame is very thin and combined with the height of the piece it does wobble a little, not enough to be unsafe but wouldn't recommend if you have kids running around. You could fix that by anchoring it to the wall I guess.
