Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for restricted space I found this easy to assemble (1 person), of good quality and just right for a corner of the bedroom. Stores more than I expected but is not overbearing and therefore the room maintains an uncluttered appearance. I also found the previous reviews useful and, in my opinion, pretty accurate. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely ladder shelves Beautiful, elegant shelves. Easy to assemble. You just need to be aware that they screw to the wall on the second shelf up so watch out for electricity cable cable runs when placing them.. 04 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Elegant Bookcase This is a very elegant slight bookcase that manages to hold the weight of books and ornaments without apparent effort. Despite the veneered finishes I think this looks the part and was simple to construct. 29 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect This shelf unit was just what I wanted. Arrived flat packed and packaged very well. Shelves were well protected. Instructions were easy to follow and all the pieces are very well finished. Once built frame is sturdy and looks great in place. Thinking I may order the smaller one too. 22 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid and great looking So easy to assemble, quality is very high, they look really great in the room 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good alternative to traditional shelves Functional and stylish piece of furniture. Easy to assemble. Very pleased with the end result. 21 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Luckily the shelves don't collide with the dado rail. For those of you with a dado rail 103cm from the floor, this unit avoids it. The measurement from the floor to the top of the 3rd shelf is 102.8cm! It was 2mm shy of the bottom of the dado rail on the wall and thus a perfect fit. Also useful for those of you with skirting boards, the bottom of the first shelf is 20cms from the ground. The third leg is inset thoughtfully so that it does not lay flush with the wall, avoiding the skirting board.The veneer is a passable substitution for real oak, just don't look too closely. I, a feeble woman, assembled it myself, and had no problem lifting and placing it. Just breathe deeply! 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colosseum FSC Bookcase Really easy to assemble, instruction simple and concise and looks great in any room or office. Simple but practical. Looks exactly as it does in the photograph. Would definitely recommend 12 May 2015
