The Story

Versatile storage design shifts positions, shifts functions, shifts perspective from upright bookcase to horizontal media console. It shifts from positive to negative space too, with a finished, closed back square and open rectangle on each of three fixed shelves (which also means it can be used as a room divider). Align vertical multiples dramatically down the wall, or you can even stack two or three on their sides.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get What You Pay For I have been looking at this bookcase for quite some time. I was aware it was self-assembly. What is so disappointing is that not all the pieces were cut correctly, so there is a gap between one of the side pieces and one of the back pieces. I know I could ask for a replacement piece, but after assembling one, I have no desire to do it all again. I have also had to color in two chips in the wood's veneer before it was fully assembled. I expect this quality of other "assemble-it-yourself" companies, but expected more from C&B. I should have known that a bargain from here would be reflected in the quality of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy ! I was looking for a narrow piece of furniture that would hold a television, my printer and some books in a small spare bedroom. I had looked everywhere for something that would fit the space with no luck. I happened to see this piece on the website and went to the store to look at it. I didn't recognize it when I went in the store because they had it upright rather than horizontal. After seeing it, it was love at first sight. It was perfect and very classy looking! It was packed very well and installation was easy. I recommend the piece to any one with a small living space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Case ever I bought one of these 6 months ago for the kids media room in the basement. It is so great for the tv and their video games. Super construction and nice to have the openings in back for easy access to cords. Got 4 baskets to go in the closed square sections for closed storage. Looks beautiful in a casual room. Price is so great and this product is so solid it feels like it should cost 3 times the amount I payed. I am currently online ordering another for the cottage basement. Great,sturdy inexpensive, casual piece of furniture!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great, affordable bookcase! We bought this bookcase to use as a media stand and it has worked out perfectly. We use it on its side and our 50 inch flatscreen TV sits on top of it. We put a couple of baskets in it, as well as some stacks of books and it looks great. It was a affordable option compared to other media stands. We put our DVD player in it as well as our apple TV. Down the line, we could use it in a million other spots if we change up decor. I would consider buying another! Only downside is that because it is black, any dust on it shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! This bookcase is fabulous! I originally bought 1 to lay horizontally to be used as a tv stand/ media console. My husband and I loved it so much that we bought 2 more to stand vertically next to each other to be used as bookshelves in our dining room. The various sized shelves made it really easy to organize all of our cookbooks, wine carafe, and glasses. The design is very modern and looks great in any room. It was easy to assemble (i did it myself) and seems to be very sturdy. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs a book shelf/ media console that doesn't want to spend $1000. For $199 you cant go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Combine for a divider wall As others have said, these are great, versatile bookcases/media consoles. I combined three to create a divider wall in my studio, and it worked perfectly! It let in some natural light from the windows while providing enough of a wall to create a bedroom space and living room space. On the living room side, I had books and other little pieces from my travels and some hidden storage as it was close to the couch. On the bedroom side the back created a nice barrier without being too stark.I really love these bookcases and got several compliments on them. I couldn't say enough great things about them! I paired them with the incognito desk which looked great and is a perfect combo for a small space. I've since moved (cross country too and they are still pretty new looking) and continue to use them now as two bookcases against a wall, and one on it's side flush against the backside of my couch... another great way to pair them!Lastly, I put all three together myself so it can be done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our wise purchase I just moved into an apartment in the city and was in need of a media table that also had the capacity to store. We also were on a bit of a budget. I love the Shift Bookcase/Console Black! There is ample space to put electronics as well as openings for the cables and in the other compartments I am able to put more aesthetic things - like art, books and vases.Assembly was simple - though we did need to buy a shorter-handle screw driver in order to tighten the screws in the small compartment areas.Also, because I live in an apartment I had to order and ship the console directly to the store and pick it up. The person helping me in San Francisco was so helpful and the piece came in just when they said - very painless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look for Small Apartment I ordered this as a TV stand and bookshelf for my small apartment. Great present in the room and looks great. It was easy to assemble. I am so happy with my purchase for $200. Good value, good quality, and good style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, Sleek & Accommodating I'm a young, recent graduate and I wanted to purchase a quality and affordable piece of storage furniture that could accommodate not only my tiny apartment in New York City but also my taste for sleek design. The shift bookcase/console fit the bill perfectly. It serves as a bookshelf, a wine shelf, a TV console and more. I place cute baskets in the box units so that I have even been able to store clothes and shoes within it. As I mentioned, I lived in a tiny NYC apartment and I've had to get very creative with using every square inch of the floorplan, but I wouldn't do without this bookcase/console.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versatile I love this piece it compliments my decor nicely! Great price for such a versatile piece. I purchased one as a tv/media stand and just ordered another for a bookshelf. I've received numerous compliments. Very inexpensive for such a quality item! I picked it up at my local store and I have a Saturn Vue and the longer of the two boxes just inched in. I recommend delivery unless you have an suv/truck. Very easy to put together and the directions are very user friendly! It definitely takes two people when you get to a certain stage but that 20 minutes of labor is well worth it! This is a must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, sturdy We purchased two of these bookcases to run behind our large sectional sofa and they not only fit perfectly, but are very sturdy. The instructions were very easy to follow and there were just a few steps. It took about 20 minutes to put together the first bookcase and 15 for the second.You do need a phillips screwdriver. You will also want two sets of hands since the big top/bottom pieces are quite heavy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Looking but The Quality is not Crate&Barrel 4 corners are chipped out of the box but not worth returning since it's so heavy. Easily fixed with touch-up paint but still doesn't look smooth. I like the bookcase still.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modular and Modern This shelf worked out as a great modern accessory piece for my living room. It functions well for books, while also providing a great frame for knickknacks and other display items. I used this shelf at a 90-degree shift from it's pictured use. It fit perfectly, provided a wonderful visual accent, and is easy to move around if I need to. Definitely a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL AND WELL MADE I love this audio visual/bookshelf. I was planning to assembling it myself, however, as I had two men mounting my television on the wall when I brought the shelf home, they did the assembling. It took them about 25 minutes,The unit looks stunning underneath my tv, and the positive to negative spaces give it that extra special appeal. My PS3 and TIVO units are barely noticeable on the small shelves, which is what I was looking for. It looks like a very expensive piece of furniture. Yet, it was priced very reasonably. I have my beautiful statues, etc. on some of the shelves and on top, and mixed them with some beautiful orchids and plants. I am so pleased that I found the perfect piece of furniture. Thanks Crate and Barrel !
