Java Linea Leaning Bookcase
I recently purchased two bookshelves, along with the matching desk. I loved the look (and still do), but, wow, it was not fun to assembleâ¿¿and I'm good with instructions and very handy with tools.
On both bookshelves I bought, I had to change the order of the assembly steps in order to get them to go together. I also found that a number of the holes were a mere dent in the wood, so I had to drill them myself. Further, on one of set of shelves, the holes drilled for the pegs were too small, so I had to sand them down to fit. I considered returning them and then thought what if I went to all that effort and got more that had the same (or worse) problems?
Very unimpressive when Container Store products are usually so well designed!

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.
