Perfect for small spaces
This bookcase is exactly as the name suggests, the perfect bookcase for that little space where nothing else fits. Yet it attractively holds quite a few volumes in that small space. It is a quality piece of furniture. Don't let the "assembly required" feature deter you--it took this 60-year-old less than 15 minutes to assemble, and I wasn't rushing it; and the quality is that of a fine furniture addition. It doesn't disappoint!!

Stain is very thin; finish is inadequate
This bookcase is pressed board with a very thin veneer and inadequate finish. The stain does not appear to have much, if any, protector in it (such as a polyurethene coating). It scratches easily - I scratched it putting a book in and the stain comes right off. It looks nice, was packed well, and is easy to put together, but if we use it much (which we will) I can see that I'll have to restain and poly it within a year (or paint it). Considering the construction material and finish, it is overpriced.

Well-made, beautiful finish--but it arrived with NO instructions for construction! Still trying to figure it out. Love the wood and compact size. holds my craft supplies beautifully.

The bookcase is a wonderful piece of furniture. The color is beautiful and it is well made. I love the "no room for..." furniture, they fit perfectly in smaller spaces. If I had any negative comment, it would be the directions....a little more information would have been appreciated. So folks if you have trouble with the locknut cam locking onto the screw, back the screw out a little bit and it will work. The bookcase is a little pricey but the quality makes up for it. Glad we bought it.

perfect for that spot under the window
I have far too many books, and although I already own more than 20 Levenger Book Boxes and other bookcases and furniture items, I never have enough places to shelve all my books neatly. I was also running out of logical floor spaces for bookcases when I realized that in my upstairs sitting room there was an empty area under the windows that would be ideal for this case. Like all Levenger products it was quick and easy to assemble, and also like all Levenger products it looks great.
I consider Levenger products to be a little on the expensive side, including this bookcase, but I love the quality and the way all the dark cherry pieces go together even though they were bought 15+ years apart. This is a perfect little bookcase and if you need something this size you should strongly consider it.

Great "No Room" Furniture
We had bought the "No Room" chair-side table and loved it so that, particularly when the 15% discount was available, we had to have the bookcase to balance our couch. Our nature (butterfly, bird, wildflower and other botany/tree) books are now readily available in view of our easy chairs. Cannot praise the looks, form, fit & function not to mention value enough.
