Product details

BILLY is a versatile bookcase that works just as good as a storage unit and is suitable to use in many different ways at home.

The shallow and adjustable shelves help you customize your BILLY and allow you to use it as you like – for storing everyday items, memorabilia or other things you collect.​

BILLY has a simple and timeless design that is easy to personalize by adding boxes, lighting and your favorite items.

Make it even more personal by adding a door, allowing you to both hide and display things. In this way your BILLY can get new functions and a new look as your style and living situation changes.

A single unit can be enough storage for a limited space – but you can add more bookcases and shelves to create a larger storage solution if your needs change. ​

The wooden expression with a tactile wood texture brings a warm and natural feel into your home and adds a beautiful and vibrant look to the room.

The back panel fixes in place with snap fittings – making BILLY easy to assemble and disassemble, so you can bring it when moving instead of buying a new one.

Repeat purchaseLorrieThe Billy bookcases do not disappoint. I have purchased several.5
Poorly QualityCoreyThe quality on this particular product is not there. The backboard lines did not match up causing the board to not go in correctly, the holes for the shelves are also ever so slightly misaligned. I was able to get everything together and hide the imperfections after doing some minor alterations to bookcase. Once the shelving was in one of the pegs busted out of its hole so I had to move the shelve up one notch to hide the damage. 3

Good quality an price combination.JuanEasy to set-up. A good piece of furniture..5
Billy shelvesMichaelI had a half round corner unit that wasn't working anymore. So I switched to this unit with the height extension and an extra shelf for a cat. I was a breeze to put together and does it's job well for what it was intended for.5
BillysDawnI have four of the Blue Billy bookcases with the glass doors. For the most part I do like them very much. The most recent two I purchased had a little trouble with the back. The piece that slides in bowed and didn't"t stay flush and tight. Maybe make that piece a little more rigid and thicker maybe. Also it would be nice to see every product in the "Billy Line" be available in all the colors available. For instance, I have the Blue Billys and there is smaller Billy that is only available in either white or brown-black. To see that one in blue would be awesome to keep the flow.5
Good buySalpieSturdy to hold heavy books.5

An updated storage hero

BILLY bookcase has been a steady customer favorite for more than 40 years – but old faithful favorites also need to be updated to keep up with the times. We took a closer look at BILLY and came up with some ideas. One of them means more efficient use of materials, and another makes the bookcase easier to assemble and take apart.

“BILLY was introduced in 1979 and has helped millions of people to organize books and other things in the home. But the world has changed a lot since then, and even popular big-sellers need to adapt to new demands and ways of living,” says Umut Ates, one of our co-workers.

Paper means smarter use of raw materials

Instead of a thin layer of wood veneer, BILLY now has a hard surface of durable paper foil. ”The foil has different printed patterns that look like natural wood and means that less wood is needed to make each BILLY,” says Umut. Using materials only where they are needed is resource-efficient. “And it has meant another positive thing – an even more affordable BILLY.”

Easier to assemble and take apart

BILLY fits just as well in the living room as in other areas of the home – the office, dining room or library. It’s easy to expand and combine with other furniture. But one thing that has had potential for improvement is how the bookcase is assembled and taken apart. “Previously, you had to use about 50 small nails to get the back panel in place, but that’s history now. Instead, you snap on the back panel without any tools,” explains Umut. It also makes it easier to disassemble BILLY without damaging it if you move or want to resell your bookcase. “The improvements have made BILLY more adaptable – it can keep up changing life situations – and it wouldn’t surprise me if this storage hero is as popular in 40 years as it is today.”
