What goes up, must come downKeeterBought three of these in April. Got them in late June. Is it just me, or do the novelty of quality eventually loss its shine as the companies grow bigger and bigger and bigger. I used to LOVE ikea products. Never again.1

Smaller size needs clear glass doorBillyfan2204Ikea, I'm sorry, but the morliden glass door for the smaller size billy bookcase, well, just sucks. We need a clear glass oxberg door for the smaller size, just like the bigger size has. I want to line my entire office with about 10 or fifteen of the small size billy, so that I can still hang art and pictures on the wall. I also want to be able to see my books in all the bookcases, so I don't have to go rooting through all of them to find the one I want. Without a clear glass option. This ain't possible. Plus, just looking at books feels good. I've been humming and hawing over this project for a year, but just can't find a solution that works, and can't bring myself to buy the big billy bookcases when I know it just won't be right for my space. Like many, I'm working from home full time now, and my space means even more than ever. Please create a oxberg clear glass door for the small size billy bookcases! And if you do it in the new red, I'll be in seventh heaven!2
Solid bookcaseSarahahahThis bookcase looks nice, is easy to assemble and has really nice deep shelves. My only complaint is that it doesn’t travel well. I have moved 3 times with this bookcase and it really doesn’t seem to take well to being moved. Things begin to loosen and they can’t really be retightened. After my last move, I decided that it was time for it to go but I would definitely purchase another again in the future.4
Received with water damageDJ92I wish I could give this case 5 stars. It fits in great with my room and is sturdy. Unfortunately, the one I received had water damage and scratches. I wish Ikea would take a bit more care with checking these before they ship out.2

Perfect for my medical suppliesMarvinpogiI'm glad that I bought it. Everything is organized.4
Versatile and functionalAmy 007It is a great storage unit. Good quality, sturdy and practical. I like the option of being able to customizing the unit and add on more shelves and height by purchasing extra pieces to suit your needs.5
Excellent book caseartist 101I needed storage for books and found this Billy to be exactly right.5
Exactly the right piece!LeNa3337Perfect for the space we needed it for and LOVE the cut out on the back lower edge that provides the gap for baseboard and allows the unit to snug right up to the wall. IKEA thinks of everything :-)5
Excellent book shelf0000344I bought this a month ago and I am so satisfied5

Designer thoughts

"It was 40 years ago I got the assignment to design a simple, functional and smart storage solution for books. I couldn't have imagined then that BILLY bookcase would wind up in so many homes across the whole world. I remember being especially pleased with the adjustable shelves and the depth of the bookcase - perfect for books. We were also able to transport it in a flat pack - an idea I was actually first to develop. The bookcase is still one of my favorites and I hope it continues to be around for many more years."
