Customer comments about Burton 74h 36w Bookcase:

The clean industrial look and glass shelves are quite a contrast to the wood we had in it's place. These shelves are somewhat hidden in the catalog and I only discovered after driving to California to visit showroom! I love them. They are well made and complement my collectible clutter wonderfully.

Service and delivery comments:

We had a great experience with our delivery staff. The unit needed leveling and they did that as well as making sure all the shelves were steady, adding small plastic bumpers to each one.

        This gorgeous unit allows us to display pottery and other pieces we have collected over the years. We don't have much room, but the design has a small footprint. So far, I have no "negatives" to report. As to delivery, the guys who delivered and set up the unit were fantastic!

        Great open space to display all my travel collection of Asian art pieces , as well as my huge collection of very heavy art books. Bought two and have them side by side...looks awesome! Would have loved to have some adjustable shelves, but still managed to display most items except for the really tall vases, couldn't believe how many books I was able to fit in without it looking crowded.

                A:

                The Burton Bookcase is only available with clear glass. Because there is a trace amount of metals in the clear glass, the edge can appear to have a pale green hue.

              Q:

              Is it possible to assemble and use the Burton Bookcase without installing the top "solid" shelf so that a light above the bookcase will shine through the glass shelves?

              • Employee Review

                A:

                The steel on the Burton Bookcase is one single piece of welded steel, so no assembly is required. Because of this, there is not the option of leaving the top as a frame only component where glass could be used instead of steel.

              • Employee Review

                A:

                The Burton is made from natural steel so it is a true charcoal-steel grey. It is dark but in the light you can really see the grey. The joints are hand-welded and can have a slight blue or rainbow effect. Very subtle. This definitely doesn't have the appearance of a painted finish as there is a bit of variation in the color.
                The first environment image on the Burton product group page really shows the look of the natural steel finish, especially when you zoom in. Look at the top corner of the bookcase on the left to understand how the natural steel looks in natural light.
                Hope this helps. We love to talk about the materials we use in our products so let us know if you have more questions. 800.301.9720
