SturdyThe BuyerPerfect for the location and the 2nd one I bought.5
Looks good; nice & sturdy.Neil219Took better part of a day to assemble 3 units. They hold nearly all the books we have5
Love the colorTinaG 97Bought this to match the TV stand. Looks great5
Back panels won"t fit in slotsaepareI purchased two of these bookcases after learning that the brown BILLY bookcase was (unfortunately!) being discontinued. On both items, the two back panels were too large to fit together into the slats! We had to hack away at the wood to create more space for the panels to lie flat. The fact that this occurred twice on both the bookcases I purchased makes me suspect that there is a systematic problem with the manufacturing. All in all, this was a major hassle for an item that cost significantly more money than what I had originally wanted.1
Perfect size bookshelf!APeezyI used mine as a shoes and purse shelf! I love it!!5
Bookcase shelf support slat breaks apartjacobusverbaarschotWe got two Hemnes bookcases about two years ago. In both bookcases, the slat which supports the lowest shelf broke at the point where it is glued together. For the first bookcase this happened about three months ago, and for the second one just yesterday. In both cases there were only books on the shelf. Also the support post and the shelf were damaged at the point of the metal support clips. For the first book case I glued it together the support slat and reenforced it on the backside with a metal strip (it held up well until now) and repaired the post and shelve with plugs. This was actually a lot of work (about half a day, because I had to disassemble the bookcase. Now I am too upset to repair the second bookcase -- that is why I am writing a bad review.1
Buyer beware -- different color than Hemnes graysomeoneelse90After 2 months of back-and-forth with IKEA about trying to get this bookcase delivered (they ultimately canceled the order, despite the fact that it was in stock at our local IKEA), we finally got a hold of one. I have several other pieces of gray Hemnes furniture, including Hemnes bookcases, that I bought several years ago. They have for some reason changed the shade of gray for the bookcases only (compare with the image of the gray Hemnes desk for example) despite labeling it still as Dark gray stained ...which led us to believe, I think reasonably, that this would be the same color. A big disappointment and ruined our plans to have another matching bookcase.1
Faulty and poorly designedmrfootballfan55The assembly of this bookcase was very difficult as several of its components look very similar and belong in very different places, making the assembly confusing and time-consuming. The shelves fell completely through only TWO days later and with only a few items on the shelves, damaging the main shelf in the middle and the inserts on the inside of the bookcase. As a result, the bookcase is now unusable. This is the first time I have ever regretted an IKEA purchase.1
Faulty and disappointedvanessam77I bought two of these book shelves. One is great. The other never went together well. The whole back won't attach causing multiple shelves unusable and falling off. It looks terrible. Maybe I got a faulty one? $150 is too much for this to happen.1
Changed the colorzimzapzupI bought this as a replacement for a 5 year old Hemnes bookcase that had buckled due to some over stuffing and a weak point in a key joint. I had another one in good condition and expected the replacement to match, but the color of this model has changed. I returned the new one and will use the shelves from the one that broke as mounted wall shelves. I like the book shelf over all, but I wish it had held up better. Or that I could have found the part to repair it when it broke.4
Stamper123Bought two for my art studio. They look beautiful in the space. Clean lines, sturdy for my books, easy to put together. I chose the white finish. Very happy with them.5
Lousy cheap dollar store productShoddy merchI have purchase IKEA products in the past and they have been solid wood and very sturdy. This bookcases had sides made of flimsy product. Not even particleboard. When assembled the whole entire bookcase wobbled. When books were placed on the shelves, they collapsed. The entire case is a broken mess is product that is not wood. If I could give minus zero stars I would. The only positive experience with this purchase was the wonderful delivery men. Customer service informed me my 400$ would be returned, cost of 2 cases plus 100$ delivery charge. Now I'm being told that was a lie, a non truth. I have to wait 4 more weeks for so.eone to pick up the broken parts and I will NOT be refunded my delivery charge. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM IKEA AGAIN. Sad shoddy product...1
Fits in nicely with rest of shelves!Maraai03Always happy with my purchase from IKEA5
Tools34This was not as sturdy and well made as most Hemnes products I have purchased in the past. A shelf fell through shortly after assembly. And the assembly instructions were not clear for certain pieces. Thankfully, since I am pretty handy with a drill, I was able to rework the pieces without disassembling and starting all over again.3
Super all-around bookcase3sonsmomLooks and functions really well, the white Hemnes bookcase I bought 3 weeks ago. Clean lines, sturdy, many shelves, and a great way to store and display my son’s LEGO creations. Way better than the floor!5
Didn’t get itWouldliketohaveitOrdered this online and received a confirmation email that they would contact me when it was ready for pick up. Never received that confirmation and when I contacted the store they said they were putting it back on the shelf. Super frustrating!1
Solid construction, a great lookJWinWAThis is our fourth HEMNES bookcase, first in the white with wood pattern. Really like the solid construction, even though the assembled bookcase is surprisingly light to move. Looks really good in my new home office.5
wood construction.Big SwedeMy library was overflowing my smaller book shelf. this is the perfect size and fit ,for now!5
Pretty good!builderladyLove the series but two complaints: One , there are some slight variations from pieces bought a few years ago. This made it difficult to put units side by side since the sides were flush previously. Two, you have got to come up with a better backing system. The backers never fit into the grooves just right, and one of my pieces broke almost immediately down the center vertical seam. Fortunately the nice folks at Ikea Grand Prairie replaced it easily!4
Very nice bookshelfMariyaLWe bought this bookcase to replace a smaller Billy, and it’s a great item. Took a little while to assemble, but fairly straightforward. It’s a very large bookcase, I kind of wish IKEA would have it in several sizes to accommodate a smaller space.5
