Love the look!

I was surprised at how nice the material was when it arrived. It's very solid and stylish. It is tall and leans forward a little. I haven't had any problems with it falling over and I even tried rocking it a bit to see what it would take to topple it. It seems stable, but if you have little ones yo...see moreof the reviewer's review

For the price - this is a decent piece of furniture. It is not great quality - and I didn't expect that at this price point. Took about an hour to assemble and I too had difficulty with the cam bolts and locks. They are about 1/4" too short. To make it work - I unscrewed the bolts a couple of turns ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Tedious Assembly

Francine 2 years ago
The finished bookcase looks nice. I will echo other reviewers and say the cam bolts are terrible. It's hard to tell if you've tightened them properly, and I had to use a flat-head screwdriver instead of the allen wrench to get them to tighten at all. Also, the base assembly took almost a full hour w...see moreof the reviewer's review

I'm stoked that Target started offering a mid-century design set at an affordable price, when you need something modern, but also don't have a thousand dollars to get a really well-made item. I was pretty impressed with how solid this was, though! It's just the backing that was pretty flimsy, but th...see moreof the reviewer's review

When I ordered this, I knew it wasn't something that would last forever. We put it together last night and noticed more than one place that's already knicked/peeling/looking poor. It's also very unsteady. If we weren't in a hurry to get a shelf up, we'd have taken it back. As it is, I don't expect i...see moreof the reviewer's review

Worthless hardware

I absolutely loved the look of these shelves and ordered two, but was very disappointed. Multiple pieces had deep scratches that the manufacturer had attempted to repair, which were glaring and on the outsides of the long side pieces, so you couldn't hide them. The pieces should never have been pack...see moreof the reviewer's review

The bookcase has a nice clean shape and now that it is together I will keep it. The back panel is off color from the rest of the unit, not enough to bother once the shelves are filled. While assembling discovered the cam bolts and locks are useless and was ready to return the entire bookcase in frus...see moreof the reviewer's review

i never write reviews of anything but this thing infuriated me so much, i have to speak up! ditto the previous reviewers on the construction - the cam bolts and cam locks do not work. don't even try - you'll waste hours. the allen key provided doesn't fit them at all. the back panel only half-fits o...see moreof the reviewer's review
