Nice in white - 4 days ago, Verified purchaser
These are both functional and decorative. They are sturdy, great for displaying home decor items, and the price was right compared to similar wall units I shopped for. They do not look cheap, and I am happy with them. I am a female and was able to put one together myself. I had help because there were so many, and it would have take me too much time and energy. However, they are easy to put together an you can do one in about an hour. They were shipped to my home undamaged and arrived within a week.

So cheaply made for the price! The one side panel was cracked and it was so flimsy. Needless to say I returned and will not be exchanging it for a different one.

attractive bookshelves but poor quality, the best thing about these bookshelves is that my husband and I are finally convinced it’s time to start building our own furniture if we can’t find an antique piece we like.

This was the third Carson bookcase we have purchased and it will be the last! The quality of this one is so far below that of the first one we puchased a few years ago. The assembly/instructions were the same for all three bookcases, but the pre-drilled holes in this third one were poorly done and many of the screws went in crooked/didn't fit. Had to do a lot of "jiggling" to get the top panel to fit. There were no pre-drilled holes for the back panel, but the panel was so narrow that there was no way to screw it into the sides without splitting the side rail (another 1/4" on either side would have made a big difference). The two halves of the back didn't meet in the center/there was a gap and were held together with thin plastic tape and there was a crack across the corner. While all three have been veneered, the quality of the walnut veneer was the worse and looks very cheap compared to the other two. Would have returned, but there was no other option that would have fit the space and/or the other Carson bookcases.

This white bookshelf was very affordable and I wanted something not too expensive for my room/art studio. It comes packaged in some styrofoam that sheds and the particle board just seems cheap. In the end, I assembled it despite some pieces of the assembly being imperfect. It would just be too much work to take apart or even consider packaging it back up in the messy styrofoam pieces. I'm just keeping it for the sake of time and effort. I just would not buy this again. An IKEA bookshelf may be a better bet for the price.

I bought one of these over 10 years ago in "chestnut" I still have and love it. I purschased two of these in white and the quality has considerably decreased (and the price went up $70...I understand inflation but I still expect a quality product). The pre-drilled holes didn't line up. It wobbled and the back panel was cut too small. When complete I didn't trust it to be able to carry the same load as my original. So I only placed light weight decorative items on it instead of books like intented. I would have returned them if I had immediatley assemble them, but my job kept me from home for six months after I got them. I moved them across the floor one day and one of the side panels became unhinged.

We definitely got ripped off with this one. The pictures online look very different than in person. To be fair, it does look nice until you get up close. It’s very flimsy and cheap quality. Assembly was not difficult but my husband spent more time trying to clean off the styrofoam that was stuck EVERYWHERE on the pieces than actually assembling. A few parts were scratched/damaged and a piece at the top is sightly warped and uneven. It’s great for a playroom or something (which is where it may end up) but if you’re looking for quality this isn’t it. I’d say it’s worth maybe $60.

Just arrived this evening and absolutely ruined my rest of day. Styrofoam was alllllll broken pieces when I opened the box it was a huge mess. Not just that, there’s NO INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!! I just cannot believe assembly furniture missing the instructions. I wasted my time for no reason to find the instructions on Google. The worst part was missing holes. I mean how can you not make the hole when there should be? Do you want me to hammer it down? Not to mention the back parts. Those are two separate pieces with the weak duct tape on, it was falling apart. I couldn’t even finish to assemble them because of missing holes. This item should be discontinued.
