Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks sharp! I bought this about a month and a half ago to serve as a storage shelving for my son's playroom. I laid the bookshelf on it's side and took some toy bins and put them in the larger cubbies and was able to use the smaller open cubbies and top (side of bookshelf) to place other toys / puzzles, etc. This adds a sharp modern touch to the play room compared to tradition toy storage units. The assembly was pretty straight forward and the wood is of good quality. My only complaint (hence 4 stars instead of 5) is that I had to send the first unit I received back because it was missing several of the screw in parts that were already embedded in the wood and the two side panels had been damaged. Customer service was great in addressing this and arranged for another unit to be shipped and pick up of the first unit. My second unit came out great, there was one minor scratch on the long side panel (almost in the same position where the big damage marks were on the first unit I received) but it was barely noticeable and didn't seem to impact the sturdiness of the shelving unit. Overall great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the modern and sleek design! Very happy I found the shift bookcase for my den. I was looking for something with nice clean lines, and a good price. Modern furniture always tends to be on the pricier side so I was glad to find this piece. Although the quality isn't amazing for the price I am happy. It looks like a nice solid piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic media console I purchased this book case a few months ago and I couldn't be more pleased with the design and function! I decided to use it for my TV. All my electronics, speakers and décor fit perfectly on the shelves, and also give me plenty of space to store books, albums etc. I love finding a furniture piece that I can use multiple ways, and this was the total package!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality bookcase -- easy to assemble! My daughter purchased this bookcase a few months ago. I liked hers so much that I purchased one as well. The two boxes were delivered right on time. The parts were very well organized, and the instructions were easy to follow. I put it together by myself (although they recommend two people), and it was finished in about an hour and a half. I think two people could do it in 45 minutes. The bookcase looks very nice, and seems to be of high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatil I wanted to update my living room with a piece that will give an accent to the room and be able to use it either vertical or horizontal. This was a match made in heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great we bought another We purchased this bookcase 1 month ago and it was so easy to assemble. I appreciate that the customer service experience at Crate & Barrel is consistent over the phone, in-store, and at the factory for pickup. We loved the bookcase so much until we returned to purchase another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Functional, Attractive I purchased the bookcase to use as a media center about three weeks ago, set it up immediately (a little tricky, but not difficult) and have been very pleased with it. All our components fit perfectly (with room for photos, objects d art, etc.) It's very solid and sturdy and easy to clean. The only issue I have is that, close up, the wood doesn't look very "natural"; the tone / color is very flat. But for the price, it's a great value and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my Second! I bought this product as a TV stand about 4-5 years ago in brown, and it has been perfect. It's sturdy, great looking, stylish, and exactly what I thought it would look like. Then I needed one for my bedroom just recently and was looking for the best one, when I came back upon this again. And I wanted black, so I got it. Awesome price, sturdy, typical great quality from Crate and Barrel. I'd get it for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bookcases for the price I bought 2 of these bookcases a month ago for my sons room for books and to hold a TV. They are great quality for the $$$. Takes a little while to put together but not to long...pretty straight forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Toys! Wanted something stylish but functional to store toys and games. This is perfect! The larger sections hold containers for storing items like legos, etc. and the smaller ones are the perfect dimensions for board games. Pretty easy to put together and looks great... and has a great price! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from liked it so much I bought another one... Bought one to use as a media console and it worked great and looked great so months later bought another one to put side by side with the first to fill up a long wall under wall mounted TV. Houses all the electronics plus room for books, vases, sculpture. An affordable solution and both were easy to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy It looks exactly like pictured, we bought 2 bookcases and have them standing next to each other. They just blend in the decor. Very discreet and elegant. Surprisingly great storage as the shelves are fairly deep (I traded these in and got rid of the Sloane because we were running out of space - capacity is much higher in Shift)Material so far looks like nice quality for the price - so good value.Also - I had great customer service on this product. Thanks Crate & Barrel for valuing your customers' business. Much appreciated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was hoping for better but ok for the price The idea of turning a bookcase on it's side is fantastic. Overall the style is nice, was fairly easy to put together. Was a little miffed that the made in India sticker did not peel off easy like all other stickers and had to purchase some goo gone to remove. Unfortunately, I still see ever so slightly where it was. Also,I really wish there was a 2 or 3 inch base or platform that could slightly elevate the unit to better hide elec stuff beneath the unit rather than simply behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bookshelf! This bookshelf is fantastic! It is not only inexpensive but it looks great and is super easy to put together! I put the bookshelf together on my own very quickly without any confusion. It is sleek and modern looking and I love how it displays my frames and vases! A great buy for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart book cases!! My husband managed to put 2 of these bookcases together (in separate rooms), and they are excellent.The design is just a little bit different, so that books and old toys that had been just a jumble before, have suddenly taken on a much more stylish existence. I would definitely recommend them - either upright or horizontal. Very useful pieces of furniture.

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 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 Versatile Media/Storage I was happy to set-up upon delivery. We use this for our TV stand. The smaller compartments are great for cable boxes and video console. We use the larger compartments for decoration and storage. The surface is quite large, so as we upgrade our TV size, we will not need to purchase a new stand.

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 5 out of 5 by from Good price, Quality Product I actually ordered this as a TV stand and record holder. I needed somethign with good presence on a big wall. It's perfect.Assembly looks daunting at first but is quite easy. The boxes are very heavy but managable with two people.I'm very happy with this purchase. May not be the nicest piece of furniture but for $200 it is sturdy and very functional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bookcase/Sofa Table! We have this bookcase in the horizontal position behind our Lounge sofa. It has been hard to find a sofa table low enough for behind this sectional and though it is slightly higher than the back of the sofa, it is the perfect size and scale. It also holds all of our art books, which can be very large and hard to fit into other types of bookcases. It was easy to put together. All in all, a great contemporary looking bookcase for the money.

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 look; great value Arrived quickly and went together well. Gives the look of a much more expensive piece. We are very satisfied with this purchase.

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 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bookcase The item arrived in a timely fashion and was in 2 boxes. I had help putting it together but it was finished inside an hour. It is very sturdy, heavy and looks great in my dining room. I have it the long way and I am very glad I purchased it. It works great with my decor.
