Meets bookcase needLoriThis Billy Bookcase meets my needs for my room. I am happy with birch look and heaviness of shelving. Back is flimsy and definitely needs to be anchored to wall. The height I needed didn't come in corner unit but worked to use a single and a double. Task Rabbit I hired did a great job assembling and installing, taking 2 and a half hours.
Love itEricaThe shelf is an amazing addition to my living room and it looks great! Thank you for the timely delivery!
Good bookshelf valueBrettI bought the bookshelf for my home office and it was easy to assemble and looks good.

I love this bookcaseMarkeishaThis book shelf is really functional and sturdy. I have used it as a shoe rack in my walk-in closet. It matches well with my closet shelving.
Billy Book case review++++KarenWell made, sturdy, easy to assemble. LOVE it!
Billy!MelanieLove love love! Billy is simply the best!
Great solution for my libraryAnnetteI replaced some shorter shelves with enough Billy bookcases including the wider, narrow and corner units to fill one wall and wrap most of another floor-to-ceiling. I used them with the Oxberg doors that are paneled and glass. I could not be happier with the utility and the way these look - instead of books gone wild, everything is neat, clean and the room seems larger. My papers and supplies are in order. My valuable editions are protected. These are sized to combine perfectly and fit into an average room so that they look like built-ins.
Same good bookcasePeterI have purchased a dozen or two Billy bookcases over the years. They hold my books well and they look good together. These were no exception. They match the other two in the room and they are keeping the books well. Easy to assemble, too.
Books and Nooks!MariaYou can never go wrong with an IKEA bookshelf! They look sleek, easy to assemble and sturdy! They don’t feel flimsy, especially the back portion of the bookshelf feels solid! Absolutely love my makeshift library!
Plastic hardware JenniferThe hardware that you twist into place are made of plastic, when they used to be made from metal. They break very easily and ikea doesn’t provide any extras in case they break. Of course I cracked two of them. IKEA used to have more quality now they’re cutting corners with cheap, plastic hardware.
Not the Old Billy I knew and lovedAnneI haven't bought and assembled a Billy book case in years. I have several in my apartment and just ordered some more for an office. I was disappointed to see that the round clasps that secure the top, bottom, sides and permanent shelves are now made of plastic vs metal and break if you accidentally turn them too much. That's a problem, because these were the parts that really held the pieces snuggly and tightly together. They're kind of crucial. (You only get exactly as many as you need, so be careful!) The shelf supports are also cheaper than they used to be, though not plastic...yet. I probably wouldn't buy a Billy again.
Cute Color Bookshelf!JennaI love the color and the size of the bookshelf. I regret not purchasing 2 of the bookshelves. I really hope more of these will be released soon
Easy to install RonaldGoes together very quickly and easily
Amazing bookcase CarlThere's a reason this is a classic Ikea item. Easy assembly and great pricing. I especially like that you can buy additional shelves, both glass and wood as well as a variety of door panels to fully customize and create a great looking piece for any room.
Simple design ReneeThis is a great shelf. We have several in different areas in our house in various colors. I like the black the best. The shelves hold up well, even with heavy books.
Decent for price HindyIt is very decent for the price. But since a book case is made to hold books, if the shelves are filled completely you can end up have the shelves sag
Finally! LisaI am so glad it finally comes in this color! Thank you!
