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.

Love the bookcasesMichelleI purchased 3 Billy Bookcases for my garage to store books. Love how nice they make my garage look. Wish I could attach a photo to this review. They were easy to put together.5
Big impact - little priceShelly1994Assembly is a breeze (I had all 3 assembled in about 2 hours - including doors). We had a large "blank" wall to fill and after looking around at other furniture stores and coming to the realization that we didn't want to spend $1500 - $2000 we opted to try the Billy. Once installed (with the doors) it filled our wall beautifully and for only $350!! I would recommend these to a friend and I would buy again.5
Not worth the price!JAMALNot worth the price!3
Great affordable quality bookcaseREBECCAIt seems with bookcases, you can have low priced junk or an expensive quality bookcase. The billy bookcase is the compromise where you get pretty dood quality for a price that can't be beat! Its actually cheaper than a lot of the low quality bookshelves out there. I am very happy with this purchase and highly recommend.5

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."
