Nice and easy to put togetherAlesia T.Looks really pretty, matches my furniture
Love it!!Michele M.This is the 2nd one we have bought and it is a sturdy bookcase. It has enough shelves and looks great in our living room next to our Brimnes TV unit.
So disappointedMuzi L.I cannot believe I waste 49 usd for next day delivery and it just literally crashed 5 hours after I assembled with all wooden piece cracked. QC is terrible, I have been suffering during assembly and right not it is completely broken with books everywhere. What can I do???
Beware! Janky Junky BookcaseNathan Z.The quality of this bookshelf is beyond terrible. The sides and internal boards are all warped and the shelves won't stay in. What a waste of money.
Gorgeous bookcase!RHIANNON S.We love it and paired it with a smaller one on each side! Fits lots of books and displays beautifully.
Great buyRobert B.Easy assembly, very sturdy, love the way they look.
Great Solid Pine BookcaseTimothy B.Instructions need only a slight improvement. It was unclear which cross piece went on top and which on bottom. I had to undo a couple steps to swap the pieces in order to attach the top of the shelf. Otherwise went together with no issues.
It holds a lot of weight per shelf and seems to be holding up so far without any deflection.
Beautiful book caseArminda A.It is a beautiful book case. We highly recommend it!
Durable and good lookingGEORGIOS B.The bookcase was not a planned purchase (we saw it in red in the entrance of IKEA and then looked fo the other colors), but it is worth the money! Sturdy and easy to construct.
I wish I had paid more attention to the negative reviewsSandra L.Item arrived broken. "Wood" on sides is so thin that it was just cracked. It was supposed to be white, but you can see through the paint. If it was just the wood grain I could deal, but there are black blotches underneath the white paint that show through. They are sending me a replacement since the side piece is broken, but overall the quality just doesn't match a bookcase I spent almost $300 for.
SpaciousJULIE H.It offers plenty of space for all the books I have and I can modify them.
Assembly Instructions not correct - assumes pieces are identical, which they are not.Laurie dill-KocherThe pieces that connect the sides together in the back are not interchangeable and the assembly manual does not indicate that there are differences. The easiest thing would have been to make the pieces identical, but IKEA didn't. You either need to change the instructions or make the pieces the same. The issue is that it requires a hole to accommodate the screw that attaches the top.
BookcaseFlo B.Need to put the numbers to correspond with the wood products.
Large BookcasesWayne K.I like Hemnes products and this is no exception. I recommend it to anyone.
Disappointed in pricingDavid S.These bookcases have increased in price $100 since 2021. Very disappointed, since I was intending to purchase many more.
Warped, shoddy materialsBrian H.I had high hopes for this bookcase, but I was disappointed by shoddy materials. I've had to use shims and braces to keep it from falling a part. 0/5 stars. Would not recommend.
Great shelfJamie W.Great shelf, holds lots of items and is durable and nice to look at. My bottom shelf didn’t align correctly and I cannot be sure whether it was a build issue or a manufacturing issue but all in all, I’m quite pleased with the purchase.
Wonderful bookcasesEDWARD W.These bookcases are the best! We bought 6 and I got all of my 1,500 books stored on them! We plan on buying 2 more in the next few months.
bookcaseFRANCES M.looks great with nice real wood but was a little difficult to put together.
Not impressedRichard S.I purchased 3 of these units. The assembly went very easy, however the quality left a lot to be desired. First was paint. It appears they have identified the minimal amount of paint that needs to be used to cover these things to the point that the interior surfaces of the bookcase are a lighter coat than the exterior sides. I assume the idea was that the interior receives less light so they could get away with saving 50 cents of paint and go with a lighter coat. This results in the wood showing through such that you can definitely see the original blond coloring of the wood. Secondly, it appears they have determined the bare minimum number of support fasteners such that it is very flimsy once assembled. Lastly, the quality of the hardware is abysmal. One of the lock turnscrews (113434) broke during assembly by my petite 12 year old daughter. Extras apparently cannot be ordered and I am still trying to find out if I can be sent a replacement. I would not buy these again.
