Rated 5 out of 5 by Badger57 Just what we were looking for
The bookshelf/stand looks very nice, especially for the price. We didn't want to spend a fortune on this piece of furniture and the stand is a good value. It appears to be very stable. We've only had it a couple weeks so cannot comment on how durable it will be but don't see any reason to be concerned at this point. Was packaged well, but had one small ding that is not an issue. Assembly was not difficult. We were missing one of the screws but additional hardware was sent right away after a phone call (although the first person I talked to asked why I couldn't just get the screw I needed from a hardware store --- I shouldn't have to do so when I paid for a complete product. But the hardware was promptly sent by the company despite that first comment). Would recommend to others.

I've bought three of these over a period of maybe 10 years. Nice size to fit into
a small space. Looks elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda10 Beautiful shelf.
I purchased this product because of its unique design although I wanted merely a 4 shelf display shelf not a bookshelf. I have always been pleased with Design Toscano. We have purchased several items in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancygecs Wonderful piece of furniture. Great value.
The color is a deep rich cherry that is just perfect. This is a well built piece of furniture and the assembly was super easy. Can't say enough good things about this. It fits my decor perfectly and is a very handsome piece of furniture especially at the price.

by Tara Perfect for my favorite books.
I love books, but currently live in a small home. The St. Thomas Aquinas Wooden Bookstand is the perfect item to solve this problem...it is small enough to fit in my living room, but bring a feel of grandeur to the space. I keep my very favorite leather-bound books on it. The only thing that could improve the design is that the small wooden pegs that fill the connection points sometimes come out easily. Nothing that a little wood glue can't fix though. I honestly love mine more than I can say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shannon12 Excellent way to display our 120 year-old dictionary!
We have an oversized 120 year-old dictionary that needed a good place to show it off. This beautifully detailed bookstand is the perfect display piece! It blends in well with our decor and has he added bonus of three real wood shelves for storing and displaying other books and collectibles. I especially love the Gothic tracery pattern on the sides. It more than met expectations and was a great value for the price.

This is a beautiful book stand! It did come without a few of the smaller pieces needed, but they were quickly sent to us and my husband had no problems at all in assembling it. It took maybe 30 or 40 minutes. The only problem was that it was described in the catalog as walnut finish, but it looks a little more like a cherry finish. But it is still beautiful and where we are placing it that doesn't make any difference for us. We absolutely love it! And our cat does too! I have not placed anything on the bottom shelf yet and she gets in there and lays down! She also laid on the other shelves before I filled them up. So it has our approval and our cat's approval too! If you are looking for a sturdy and gorgeous piece of furniture, this will fit the bill! This was our first purchase from Toscano and I would not hesitate to order from them again.
