It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Works Perfectly for UsNorthernikealoverWhile the wood and color don’t really seem to hold up against bumps... we bought three of these to line a wall and act as a pantry. Works well, assembled easily enough until you went to adjust the door heights. I dislike the new shelf pegs, and think they are awkward and terrible to remove if height adjustment is needed. We frosted the glass for a different look too.4
Light packaging leads to damaged glass doorALee2020I bought 2 units online last week. When the items were delivered, 3 out of the 8 glass doors were damaged. I heard shattered glass inside 3 of the packages and I did not open those boxes because I have young kids at home. Looking forward to exchange those damaged items in unopened boxes when stores re-open. During the assembly of the bookcases, I realized that anchor kits were provided in the package, but not the anchor nail. Do you expect customers to have their own anchor nails at home? I do have safety concern because the anchor nail is not provided in the package. Without anchoring the bookcase to the wall, the bookcase tips over every time when door is opened. Will report this Health Canada.1
Practical bookcaseDavid 1225 RCIt is not the best on the market but practical for the price I paid for.3
Love the colour!Andirae76Bought this for my dining room, love the look of the glass doors and the colour is fantastic. Wish it also came in the short size to match5
Great unitAnissa11We’re really pleased; great for displaying cherished treasures5
Beautiful LibraryCamsMomA bit hard to put together but once together these shelves had added beauty to my library. Great buy too!! Available in other colours also.5
Billy bookcaseMaria204403I bought 2 of the billy bookcase and love them. The only problem I have with them is that the doors are not wide enough to touch when you close the doors. Other than that it would have gotten 5 stars4
Lovely to display books and travel mementosHappyBunnyLove the versatility and look of these units. We purchased several double-widths and a single width unit. Side-by-side, with matching doors, it gives the appearance of a large single unit. Very pleased that down the road, should we downsize again, the units can be used individually so they will be following us, making them a good investment.5
Classy bookcasesChris2017I love my two Billy bookcases with doors. They are on either side of the fireplace and look very attractive as display cabinets. They are just what was needed to finish off the room5
Exactly as advertisedDavyboyThis bookcase is the first piece of Ikea furniture that we have bought, but it won't be the last. It went together easily, has a good finish and looks terrific. All for $300 CDN plus shipping for a very large book shelf with glass doors. A very minor quibble - one of the doors is setting out from the frame in one corner, maybe 2mm. It isn't really noticeable, it's just me being very picky. Over all we are very pleased.4
