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

    I purchased two of the large sized bookcases (42"), and I have them side-by-side in my home office. They look fantastic, and despite the fact that my office is fairly small, the slim profile of the piece is not imposing in the space. I have filled the bookcases with text books, novels, framed photos, and even have my files and printer/scanner. They look great!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fantastic delivery service. They were delivered to my home promptly and the delivery men also gave me hints on product care/cleaning.

      I absolutely hate being able to see screws and such. I was so pleased to finally find a welded bookcase. No screws! I'm a minimalist and ocd. This fit the bill for sure. Thank you Room and Board! You are pure awesome!!

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

        First delivery, caved in top shelf, told that a replacement would be sent to me. Second delivery of replacement bookcase was missing bottom of leg floor-protection padding. Nice delivery men jerry-rigged a solution by applying ad-hoc padding with adhesive. This solution failed after a week. I don't want to return the bookcase and wait for a third delivery because I have some doubts about whether the replacement will have even more serious problems. But I am not pleased with the quality control practices of your business.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Really nice and capable delivery people who try to help customers with warehouse quality control failures. One item had to be delivered twice, and each delivery featured a problem with the item purchased. Not impressed.

            I have quite a few pieces of this line of furniture. Love them! The bookcase is being used in our living room and basically holds plants along with a few favorite decorative items. It's a well made, substantial piece and makes a statement in the living room. Very happy with this purchase.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt, very courteous delivery guys who had to deal with city traffic, along with limited parking. They weren't in the least bothered by the parking conditions. At least they didn't tell me if they were!

              A bit wobbly but fixed with some adjustments on the feet. If using just for books they are a bit deep. However, I like that you can put a variety of items on them. They are simple, unobtrusive and don't detract from the items on them.

              Great looking shelf unit. I wish it had levelers on the feet. It's a little wobbly, so I wouldn't recommend it for heavy items or around children who climb.

                Loved the look but wobble horribly. Books keep falling off if you merely touch the bookshelf. Didn't realize how bad they were until about 6 weeks and room and board refuses to exchange them. Stay away if you have fine things. There also is no way to secure them to the wall.
