stax bookcase is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look beautiful I have two of these positioned next to each other. They are beautiful. I love the two tones of wood. They also look light in the space - so many bookcases can look so heavy. They were easy to put together. Very happy with these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really have a love/disappointment with this I love, love, love the look of this bookshelf. I had to wait for over a month for delivery, which was fine as there isn't a CB2 close by. Assembly was a breeze and I'm not very handy at all. I ordered it for my office to display items I sell. I was completely happy with my purchase until I decided to rearrange. I moved the bookshelf ten feet and now it leans to the right. I've tried to get it back to straight to no avail. I still love the look but am deeply disappointed for what I paid with shipping to have it lean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Spacious & Easy Assembly I purchased three of these bookcases to use for our event production company. The boxes are heavy - but that's because these are made out of great quality wood! The light wood support bars coordinate beautifully with the darker wood shelves. The mix of light and dark woods makes it very easy to pair these shelves with other woods and textures you may already have in your space. Coppers and golds look amazing on these shelves! We placed all three shelves next to one another to create a long wall of shelving - they look nice spaced out or touching edge-to-edge.Each bookcase is very easy to assemble by securing the top and bottom shelves to the support beams first, then the rest is a breeze. Because we use these for event production speed of assembly and transportation is very important. We had no problems disassembling these and repackaging them in the original boxes to transport. Great quality product!!! We may purchase a few more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Statement bookcase Finally upgraded from my college bookcase after stalking this one for three months...I am obsessed. It is beyond gorgeous and looks amazing in an old house with modern decorations. Currently saving for matching console table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design! This bookshelf is not only beautiful and stylish, it is sturdy and very well crafted. This can go against a wall, or float in the middle of a room and look equally good. Great openness to display books, plants, trinkets. Adds good texture to a room and looks good from many different angles. I bought two to display side by side after loving the first one. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and simple I've owned the shelf and its companion piece the console for several months now. Couldn't be happier with its simple design and rich wood tones. Easy assembly and very sturdy. I use it to display framed photographs and books among other things. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased An elegant bookcase that works nicely in my small apartment alongside a mix of modern and antique pieces. It was straight-forward to put together; one of the pre-drilled holes was off, but the shelves are still solid. The CB2 delivery service was also great and very responsive when I called requesting a specific drop-off time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and multi-purpose This bookcase is as lovely as it appears in the pictures and, because it is open-backed, it serves the dual purpose of being a clever and unusual way to divide space or create an instant nook. The two-toned appearance and intersecting lines using natural wood tones has an organic and very Frank Lloyd Wright feel. Know that you will need bookends, as there are no enclosures to hold up your books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought this a few weeks ago and it's such a nice piece to warm up and industrial space. Plus, it's nice and light - not too clunky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shelf is gorgeous and well made We bought two of these shelves about a month ago and WE LOVE THEM. They are so easy to put together and they've 'made' our living room. The two tones of wood/stain are amazing, the shelves are deep and tall. These seriously just elevated our space to a new level. Thank you CB2 designer/makers for such a beautiful and clean design! I would give higher than five stars if I could!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid I looked at hundreds of shelves in person and on the Net and I kept coming back to these. They looked so good in the picture, but as you know, pictures can be deceiving. Well, I fell even more in love with them when they arrived and I put them together. They are sturdy and solid and beautiful looking. I have received several compliments on them from family and friends.I am ecstatic that I took the chance on the purchase. I couldnt be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stax Bookcase Worth The Money and More I bought this bookcase in 2015 and had to wait a couple weeks for it to come in. It is worth the wait and the money. It was very easy to assemble and is great quality/still in perfect condition half a year later. I'm saving up now to purchase another one!
