Comments: I had a wood bookcase in the corner, but opted to change it out for this one. It's made my apartment look more open and airy and classy. I was worried that I might have to dust the glass shelves often, but it actually feels like I have to dust them less. The bookcase is really sturdy, too. I've very satisfied with is.

Comments: This Bookcase is so nice, I'm considering to by it twice! Its sleek, sturdy, goes well with most furniture and just the right height for someone tall like myself.

Comments: I put this in the apartment of a single, hard-working doctor who wanted style without feeling fussy. The shelves are made and forged in the USA which we both loved. They work great because they both blend in and don't feel obtrusive while also offering sleek, clean lines. I always try to add different elements and textures into a room and these shelves were perfect combo of glass and metal without being too mod or contemporary. Simple and elegant. My client loved them. Probably would think twice about them if there were kids around. We bought 3 of them and they are quite pricey but hopefully they will stay with my client for a long time.

Comments: Makes for a great media shelf and all-around display/bookself. Solid seamless stainless steel is beautiful yet subtle, does not draw too much attention just the right amount of modern minimalist flair.

Comments: The unit is handsome, it almost disappears due to its slim steel supports and glass shelves, and it provides plenty of light to enhance the objects on display. We secured it to the wall with a 1-1/2" C clamp that is unnoticeable.

Comments: There are other glass/metal bookshelves out there for a lower price but this one is very high quality. I didn't want something wobbly and since it's in my living room, I wanted something really nice.

Comments: Wanted to store books in my living room . . . yet wanted to maintain a contemporary, uncluttered look. The glass shelves and steel frame are contemporary . . . and unused portions of the glass shelves add to an uncluttered look. Delivery service was outstanding. Staff were ahead of schedule and called me on my cell phone a few hours in advance of arrival. They assembled the shelves swiftly. (If I ever decided to move . . . would I ever be able to find movers who would pack and handle the shelves as carefully?) I spent more than I had ever spent for some shelves . . . and it was well worth it!
With a nod to Art Deco and mid-century styles, Brixton’s hand-welded stainless steel frame supports sturdy glass shelves for a storage collection that yields an unexpectedly bright and airy design.
