Billy bookcasesVictorThe Billy bookcase line are a very nice looking, sturdy, inexpensive bookcase available in different sizes. Fairly easy to put together with a variety of adjustable shelf choices. We purchased 5 of them and all look very nice.5
Bought two. The first wasLORENBought two. The first was perfect. The second, the peg holes in a few were not deep enough and when I pushed the two pieces together the pegs pushed the covering out, I had to hammer the big bump back in.2

No More Nike BoxesJANNIEUsed this nifty little bookcase to house all of my Nike sneakers. I saw a YouTuber [Tamara Dhia] used this bookcase to store her beautiful sneakers and was I inspired to do the same thing. Looks amazing. Now I can put all those orange boxes in the recycle bin.5
Easy Billy!JuneI had all five Billy bookcases put together and standing in the living room before my husband finished his work! :)5
Love it!LAURENSturdy and perfect in my sons room! I will be getting for my other two kids as well! Has a matte finish on the black which I like! It also has a cutout in the back for your floor moulding which allows it to sit flush to the wall.5
Just what I neededLauraI need a couple of inexpensive bookshelves to unload several boxes of books that have been sitting in a spare room for several years, and this fit the bill. Not the most attractive or structurally sound but for the price, it’s the perfect temp fix!5

What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.

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."
