    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.
    • Frame: stainless steel See full material details
    • Material Description: Our stainless steel is domestically sourced from 60% recycled material. It is highly resistant to corrosion and has a brushed texture to ensure wear marks will blend in over time.

      Customer comments about Elton 70w 16d 72h Bookcase:

      This fits perfectly in an alcove in my living room, and looks great. It's much heavier than I thought it would be - I consider this to be a good thing. I ordered it in walnut and natural steel, but I'm going to exchange it for stainless steel, as the alcove is a bit dark and I think it will brighten things up a bit and give it some pop.

      If you have kids who might grab on or you live in earthquake country, you'll want to use the provided hardware to anchor it to the wall.

          The first time I saw the Elton bookcase in Architectural Digest I was struck by its beautiful design and the look of the wood against in our case the white metal. I love combining my favorite books with some of my favorite objects and this bookcase is perfect for that. It allows you to have fun putting beautiful words and covers together with beautiful pieces that you want to display. The case itself is so well made and will last a lifetime.

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always great delivery and service by the team.

          Customer comments about Elton 70w 16d 72h Bookcase:

          Stunning! Nothing you see in pictures or in a showroom will prepare you to see how incredible this will look in your space! I am overwhelmed by the compliments I have received from guests.

          The simple design makes this an extremely versatile piece. It will do almost anything you want a shelving unit to do. It's almost like creating your own wall-art that can be changed at will.

          On one unit I can put some books I think are just beautifully bound, a couple reference books I like to use, my bar, a couple pieces of art and personal mementos and it all works beautifully. I only have 800 square feet total in my apartment, and this is certainly a space-saver too.

          The finish on the walnut is smooth and pristine. It's solid walnut, not veneer. The stainless steel uprights are sturdy and thick, giving incredible stability.

          While my rug from R&B makes my room comfortable, I can honestly say the Elton shelving transforms my room in to a "home."

          Service and delivery comments:

          Nice guys, seemed in a rush to leave. I had to chase after them for the piece that anchors the unit to the wall. Nothing major.

                  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 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.
