I moved into a new home that lacks shelves for my many books. After hours of online research, I decided to order the very appealing Orleans Five Shelf Unit. The shelving unit was shipped unassembled in two large boxes and arrived in a timely fashion. One of the boxes had received quite a gouge during shipping but, thanks to protective internal packing, none of the contents suffered damage. One box contained the directions of assembly and a packet of hardware parts. I was pleased to note than in most of the categories of the fastening hardware, an extra piece was included. Very thoughtful.

The directions were clear until the very last part and, up to that point, I had no trouble putting these shelves together. The materials are fairly substantial. The wood of the shelves is nicely finished, though the finish had an unpleasant odor, which gradually dissipated. I was able to raise the heavy shelf unit to an upright position on my own. However, the task would have been much easier--and more wisely done--with assistance.

I assembled the shelving unit in about three hours. The process could have taken less time. But at the end, I ran into the one part of the instructions/product preparation that proved inadequate. The kit provides one metal brace per shelf that is to be screwed into each of the four shelves from below. (The top part of the unit, the fifth shelf, does not require this additional support.) The screws for this brace attachment process were provided, but not the screwdriver, and there were no pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the shelves to indicate where the brace should be attached by these screws. Nor were there instructions to cover the situation--only the brief comment to attach a brace to each shelf with the screws as shown in the picture. That didn't help much. I had to gauge from the diagram where the brace should be situated under each shelf. The wood of the shelves is a bit hard, so I was not able to screw the braces to the shelves without first using my drill to make a small hole for each screw site. I also needed a tape measure to center the braces under the shelves. I managed to complete the process through trial and fortunately no visible errors. But I would have preferred that 1) either the directions were complete and indicated the need for measuring, pre-drilling, and a screwdriver, or 2) that the screw holes had already been in place, and that the screws had hex tops so that the included hex wrench could have been used.

Once I moved the shelf unit into place, I ran into a slight issue with the levelers at the base of each supporting corner. It's a great idea, having levelers built in. These, however, are made of brittle plastic and seem fragile compared to the higher quality materials present in the shelf unit. I was able to level the shelf unit almost to my satisfaction. It's possible that the location--a padded carpet--makes precise leveling impractical.

The shelf unit looks just as attractive once completed as it does in the online photographs. I am pleased with my purchase.

          I'm impressed with how sturdy these are. Assembly was also straightforward. My only issue is that the finishes are much lighter than depicted online - the metal is almost silver. Nice looking but not what I expected.

          This shelving unit represents well in person. It is fairly easy to put together, although we had a lot of trouble lining up the screws for the back cross bars and ended up not getting on of them to fit at all. Otherwise, the wood looks very nice and it is a sturdy and attractive piece of furniture. I will definitely enjoy having it in my family room.
