Java Linea Leaning Bookcase
easy assembly, sturdy, color black not java
I buy CS stuff because items are typically sturdy and robust...these included. HOWEVER, I expected "java" to be noticeably brown; this is basically black. I kept them anyhow because of the construction.

small room shelves
My son has a small room and lots of trophies and keepsakes. This unit was great. We used the smaller one by his bed where he can put his clock, chargers etc. The desk one will hold his laptop and books, the other two fit around his dresser. They look really great against his newly painted walls.
My son is 14, he and I put them all together. Good quality! Easy instructions. Really love them.

Simple and Easy
Very quick assembly, but like any self-assembly furniture piece, wait to tighten all bolts until the end, and for these shelves specifically, in the position you want it since it is "Leaning", in order for all shelves to be parallel to one-another and look level. The overall look and quality is great for a self-assembly, poplar wood piece. The white was perfect for my niece's room. Sorry the photo is dark, but I wanted to show another example of how these shelves are a statement piece when paired, whichever finish you choose. The edges of the shelves do get scraped easy since the edges are not rounded, however because they are not rounded, it's no bid deal to touch up if needed!

I needed some type of shelf system for my home office, and it needed to be an 'open' design since it was the first thing you see when walking thru the doorway. Perfect! It provides me with the needed storage, and yet doesn't make the small room (small bedroom, actually) crowded. The dark brown color is so dark it looks black, but it was better than the white for the office. And, it was simple to put together - I did it myself!
