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.

I’ve purchased three, and I"dEDDYI’ve purchased three, and I'd buy three more if had had room.5
Love theseGiulianaThese are great. I have 2 of them and 1 of the single styles- all with doors. Easy to put together. I do it mostly alone.5
Highly recommendedDebbieHighly recommended5
Great BookshelvesTonyaI absolutely love my new bookshelves. I did get one set with the glass doors and one without the doors to see which I liked better. The doors just make the cases look much more modern and refined. Now I’m in the process of ordering the 2nd set of doors. Assembly was a breeze with two of us working together.5
Great BookcaseAngelicaGreat bookcase! The finish on this BILLY does not have a smooth to the touch finish like other BILLY bookcases do. It doesn’t bother me but it might bother other people.5
Love it!DeannaIt was pretty easy to put together and looks great.5
Looks GreatYolandaI used the cabinet to display my dolls. The doors didn't line up perfectly but overall it still looks great. With the glass that makes up the doors it gives it an expensive look without the expensive price.5
Easy to assembleBrigitteThe only thing I need to point out, is that the piece that slides into the back is very fragile. It need to be handled with extreme care because it easily tears in the folds. But overall it I very stylish and easy to assemble5
Pretty good but still cheapGabriellePretty good but still cheap quality4

Glass Door CabinetSandraExcellent - used to display Coca Cola collection. Shelves are wide and deep to display nicely. Less dusting!!5
Good shelf for the moneyJOELI have several of these shelves in my house. They serve a functional purpose while looking quite nice. Great value for the money.5
Love these book shelvesWendyMy house lacks storage space and these are a great fit.5
Disappointing difficultDiKeaDifficult to assemble w doors tipoing over bookcase.1
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


What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
