I was so excited to get these and put them together… but when I sat down to put these together about half the shelves provided had screws/spaces for them that were poorly drilled so you were unable to thread
Love the look and design of this bookshelf. Modern and clean, easy to assemble, and seems to be stable and well built. Only thing that was lackluster was the mounting anchors, they are cheap and I had to use better quality drywall anchors.

The bookcase looks very sleek. Was disappointed to see that the shelves themselves are not metal, but the frame is. Still looks good. But… the plastic anchors they sent were terrible quality. Both broke when we tried to install them. Went to buy our own metal anchors which then worked just fine.

The shelves are made out of Cheap pressed wood shaving and it completely disintegrated during the install. The metal bolts that you screw into all started breaking and falling apart. It seems like something may have changed with the overall quality. Not worth $300+ for the material type. I really had high hopes for these shelves and I’m so disappointed

I'm 72 years old and recently installed 2 - 72" stairway white bookcases myself. The clean and slimming design helps open up my living room and adds to the minimalist style I love so much. Their quality is excellent and they are stunning to look at. I couldn't be happier with my choice!

I thought these would be more flimsy than they are in reality. They're very strong and I don't worry all about overloading them. The powder coating is very smooth and makes them easy to wipe down. We put three next to each other behind the couch and they look great.
This shelf exceeded expectations. Clean, modern, easy to assemble and install! Transformed my newly updated bedroom to a clean modern and peaceful space. Would highly recommend. Also, Chris, the store manager at the University Village store in WA provided excellent customer service locating the last shelf left in their inventory. Was able to pick up same day! Appreciated his efforts! CB2 will be my go-to store.
My husband put these together with ease and they are SO sturdy. I put 2 of them a few inches apart near my kitchen with my colorful pots and pans all over them. They look stunning, there is no other word for it. The shelves are pure white with clean lines.
I saw this in one of those YouTube apartment tour videos and had to have it. It’s simple, it’s elegant and modern. Would recommend to measure the height before purchase to make sure it works as I almost purchased the higher version of this bookcase instead.
I bought this bookshelf two months ago and we are so happy with it! Beautiful quality, design, and tons of storage. It was really easy to assemble (10 minutes).
These bookshelves are nice and sturdy. The assembly was really simple. It would have been nice if they were somehow sized to attach them into two studs in the wall but the spacing doesn’t work out. We felt fine with one leg in a stud and the other attached using one of the provided wall anchors. It’s great that they hold a good amount of weight too. They are sturdy! I love the light airy look - we got the white and located them against a white painted wall. They provide a lot of storage but they don’t appear dense and heavy. (But we have not filled them to the brim either. That has something to do with it). Also the fact that you can see under them really lightens them up. Completely recommend!
handy but not a pro

I bought 3 of these to place side by side. They are beautiful and assembling each bookshelf was simple enough, but it was an absolute nightmare mounting them to the wall.
I placed the first shelf against the wall and with a pencil, traced the outline of the hole in the bookshelf (that the screw would eventually go through) onto my wall to mark the location of the pilot holes. I drilled a hole that seemed large enough and was able to insert the plastic anchor more than halfway through. This didn’t seem like those anchors that could just be pushed in the entire way because it had threads on the outside. I took a Philips head and tried to screw the anchor in the rest of the way, but the inner threads stripped and now I had to pull out the anchor. This left a rather ugly half inch hole in my wall, but luckily it was still small enough to be covered by the bookshelf bracket if I shifted everything over an inch. This time, I used my own anchors (the type that can be pushed in without twisting/turning). I was able to mount 2 of these bookshelves side by side successfully. On the last shelf, while I had accurately penciled the spot for my last pilot hole, the actual hole was slightly off to the side and there was going to be no way that I could place screw into the anchor. There’s some inherent inaccuracy to the process because even though you can center your drillbit to the marked point, the pilot hole will be larger than the point that was drawn and can end up offcenter. I pulled out the anchor and tried expanding the hole in the direction of where I needed to go, but now the too large and required a larger anchor. It was still not aligned well enough after the modification and second anchor, so I expanded the hole yet again (drill baby drill) and plugged the hole with the largest anchor I had. If this didn’t work, I would have to unmount the other 2 bookshelves to shift everything down a few inches. Thankfully, this time the stars (holes) aligned and I mounted the 3rd bookshelf. I’m hiring a professional next time.
This bookshelf looks great in our bedroom! Love the high gloss finish and open sides. The fact that it anchors to the wall is nice for safety purposes but the plastic anchors they sent were terrible and broke when we tried to install them. Thankfully we had our own anchors which worked just fine. Install was otherwise quick and easy.
Perfect sized bookcase that blends in the wall and doesn't make too much noise. Roomy shelves that are great for storing books, vases, etc.
Love the clean lines of this shelf. It definitely enhances my living room! Debated between this one and the 96” and I’m glad I picked the shorter of the two.
