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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Issues with quality I bought this bookcase a year ago. It wasn't the easiest to assemble and somehow ended up crooked so I had to undo half of it to put it back together straight. I recently moved, and even though all care was taken this bookcase broke in multiple places. I was very disappointed that the base and backboard would break so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my beautiful bookshelf !!! I love the way the bookshelf fits my room & matches all my furniture. The back was even cut out to curve with the baseboard. Well thought out design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and durable bookcase. We have bought these types of bookcases at other big box stores and the quality just is not as good as IKEA products. The shelves tend to be more sturdy and less apt to warp. We love Billy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for books! I use this in my bedroom to house my handbag collection. Because they look nice, I got the glass doors to showcase them, and keep dust out. I have the narrower Billy bookcase beside it, and use it as a jewelry armoire (with extra shelves in it). I have the additional case units above with the glass shelves as well, and the whole thing looks like a fabulous built-in that was done by a closet/organization company. We have also had a set of these in our living room for over 10 years (also with the glass doors) where they are used for the traditional use of housing books. They all look great, and function very well.
