I have set of these in my office that includes a corner unit (which apparently isn't being made anymore either). I would love to expand my unit but Levenger doesn't make the doors anymore! They made the unit so much more functional and dust free.

Like someone else mentioned, my units have started to wobble after many years. I noticed the the shelves have holes in them so they can be attached, but no hardware to attach them comes with the shelves. That would probably help with the wobbling issue.

Such a shame that the options for this product are no longer available.

If the people who designed these shelves actually used them, they'd have made the adjustable shelf so that it doesn't sag. I think they would have made the units just two inches bigger so you could get three shelves of normally sized books per unit instead of two with wasted space. And if they put them together themselves, they would not have used pot metal for the hardware! And I'd love to know why they don't make the inside corner units anymore. They'd be so nice for wrapping around a wall instead of the gap that is created without them. Although this stuff is overpriced, I find nothing else like it. To get anything else that reaches from floor to ceiling would cost at least twice as much and require two people to move. The finish is nicer than most knock down furniture. So, even with my complaints, here I am back at the site to order some more units because, in the end, they win by default.

Bring them back!

I began acquiring bookboxes from Levenger about a quarter century ago. Each time that I made a move to a new home or office, I would add pieces because they are handsome, durable and versatile. I am at that point again but cannot discover any boxes available on the website. If there are any that are languishing in your warehouse, please let me know!!!

Perfect Height for Several Uses

By

Very few bookbox components seem to be available now, so I'm wondering if this line is being discontinued. I have 4 of this particular size and shape bookbox. They are sturdy, travel well (I've moved mine twice), fit underneath most windows, and are a good height to sit beside desks, electronic pianos, and some beds. I will be sorry if this line is discontinued.

Fabulous Service!

By

I have 35 Bookcases I have purchased over many years, including 4 wooden doors that I never installed with hinges. Last year I was intent on getting this easy job done - but couldn't find hinges. I tried buying them at local stores with no luck. I was sure Levenger's wouldn't be able to help after so many years, but I was WRONG! Two weeks after telling them my story, the hinges arrived and are installed! YEAH for Levenger's - thanks for such great service!

Great product and excellent service

We recently moved. We brought our book boxes with us, but we also bought some more book boxes. In the moving process, one box was damaged and Levenger went above and beyond to help us with the problem. In addition, Levenger went the extra mile to help us with our purchase of new book boxes. Everything is in place now and they look great. You might pay a bit more for this product, but it is well worth the quality and top notch product support.

By

Attractive, very flexible, assembles easily. My one big disappointment is that there are no solid wood doors available for the boxes that would preclude sunned book spines and dust and make for a a most attractive finish and that there are no bases for the medium junior book box, but it is the lack of solid wood doors that truly limit their utility for long term book storage.

excellent value

By

I have purchased about twenty-five bookboxes and intend to purchase more. Good value for the money, attractive, sturdy, and functional. I do not have any of the older glass doors, but I do kind of wish that Levenger would bring them back, I think I could use a few of them.
