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.

Front heavyCary71This product WILL NOT stand by itself. It has to be secured to the wall. Unfortunately it’s going back.1
Great value, looks greatNick48I bought this 2 months ago and got delivered this week. The service of North American Logistics (NAL) is notoriously poor. We have informed Ikea before but Ikea's management seems to disregard it or have some other reasons for keeping them. Once gain, don't spoil Ikea's image with NAL service.5
I hate theseGp92I hate these. They look cheap. And in my opinion they are not nearly black and I have to describe them as a black brown color. I wish I had noticed this before I had waited and waited for the one that I actually wanted toCome in. I drove the two hour trip to pick them up and loaded them in and came back and realize howthey seemed in real life. And figures after that trip and the hassle of it all and still does liking them the ones that I actually wanted that they said were coming in now till late September are going to be in my store in three days. I’m not paying the $150 delivery fee and I don’t even know how to go about returning these because you can’t get in touch with anybody from IKEA customer service no matter how hard you try1
Small engineering can make this an excellent pieceIkeahunkeasy to put together, however can tip over easily due to it not being deeper and enough weight on the bottom. I purchased lions head handles and it pops. The should have a knockout to have optional light. Its not as future ready as ikea has been. I recommend if you dont gave small children. Doors open alone is enough to tip it on you if not properly bolted to wall.4
Great BookcaseHappy Mom 007This was my first purchase with Ikea and I didn't know that I had to buy the doors separate it was quite the experience going to the store. We assembled it in a couple of hours and it turned out beautifully in my new office!5
UnacceptableJake805I tried to order this a month ago. The order was cancelled by ikea. There is literally no way for me to re-order. To my knowledge its not discontinued.It's not available in-store in Colorado. Based on my zipcode I can't order for delivery. I can't pick it up at a store.So I'm just not allowed to have this bookcase? Get your act together this is unacceptable.1
GreatKbjonesUsed as a showcase! Perfect!5
Very versatile!Nola57My first set of Billy Bookcases were bought by the clients that purchased my home they liked what I had created with them. These are my second set, put them in master bedroom as a very large display cabinet. With 10 foot ceilings they give the ability to go extremely high. Love the look! Very affordable.5
Love it!Buyer9Very nice, works well, very nice for books and display items.5
Lynn727I bought this a month ago to use as a dust-free shoe closet and I LOVE it!5
Met my expectationsSankar01It’s a great product. I was able to assemble it easily. I may have to drill a hole to run wires for lighting.5
We love it.James8282Perfect for the use case, inexpensive and customized to what we wanted. It was also pretty easy to put together.5
Good cabinetsMenrubLook great and clean and spacious Doors do not close evenly all the way4
Great book CasesKarllasbooksThese book cases are great, particularly with the doors. I have a full wall filled with these Billy book cases, and of course they are full of books. Even though this is a large area, because the book cases are in white, they almost disappear and do not overwhelm the room. They are for normal and median width books, heights does not matter as the shelves are adjustable, but if you have very wide books, you either have the shelf units without doors or buy a wider book case for those books. Quality is good, particular for the price. I bought different door knobs because I do not like these small round stubs, and it improved the look of the cabinets even more.5
Perfect size and qualityKmom14I now have four of these bookcases with doors. I am extremely pleased with them. I completed redid a room that houses a collection and these are perfect for displaying and keeping my items less dusty. The cabinets were very easy to put together.... just follow the diagrams carefully.5
Nice, But....RaPaThis is a bit shallow, so larger books like 3 ring Binders will not fit in to this. The 2 doors have a 3-4 mm gap between them when closed, so this will allow dust to get into the cabinet. I wish they had a better lip/seal as in some of their other cabinets.3
Looks Great!Little LouI bought 4 bookcases with glass doors for my doll collection. I am 74 and assembled them myself with no trouble. They look great in my room. Would buy more in a heartbeat if I could find a place to put them!!!5
Cheap, flimsydizeynerI usually have high regard for Ikea products but not this time. It falls apart when put together. took it apart put it together again. nailed the sides and it still comes apart if moved. Its insanely top heavy in a way that means you absolutely WILL have to fasten it to a wall. Its made of heavy cheap particle board and it splits very easily.1
Fits well with books etc.Bebekalten1Fits well with books etc. bought glass doors, after putting cabinet together it looked so good returned the glass doors. Nice book shelves. Holds a lot of books.4
