Looks great would order again!
I was a little nervous about ordering these based on some of the reviews I read, but I loved the curved shelves and thought they'd look perfect for my small retail space. They do look very nice but make putting the pieces together a little tricky. My husband and 15 year old son used a mallet to bang them into place. Without any provided glue the top shelf is not fully secured but when we moved them we just didn't grab them by that shelf. Altogether it took them 1/2 an hour to put 2 of these together. I have also received several compliments from clients about how much they like them. If I ever expand my retail space, I would definitely order more. Love the fact that I can place product on all sides!
What A Piece of **** - and This Goes for Displays2Go, Too
Right out of the box, this item looked scuffed and nicked. But we needed to assemble the shelving for a trade show - and the bottom 1/3 cracked off during the assembly. We contacted Displays2Go, and they decided to stick us with this piece of ****. As I mentioned to customer service (or lack there of), I intend to let all my folks in the trade show community how I now feel about Displays2Go. Not good, guys. You lost at least one customer over this.
I bought this curved unit for my studio to create a reading nook. It has worked brilliantly... not too high, not too wide, yet sturdy and stable. I use it for books, and even large art books are accommodated. You will need two people to assemble this unit. Work the shelves onto one long panel at a time, hammering back and forth at each point like playing a xylophone. Keep the long panel as perpendicular to the floor as possible as you hammer. The unit is heavyish once assembled and somewhat awkward to move, so assemble near where you plan to place it. That said, two people can readily move it. Hope this helps you.
Bob Villa couldn’t put this together
Beautiful display stand. Awesome design... problem is that it’s impossible to put together.. and when you finally jimmy rig it together you’ve scraped so much paint and cracked the wood you’ve ruined it. All of he reviews on this product mention the difficulty in putting it together.... be warned
Elegant Display Stand
The display is sturdy, has a nice finish to it, and the curved look provides a timeless, contemporary look. Lining up the pieces prior to using the mallet is a bit of challenge, but once they are lined up, the mallet does the rest.
It's Not Easy.....
The shelving unit looks nice, it is perfect for what we needed it for, but it was extremely hard for us to put together. I don't know if my unit just happen to be a bad batch but the shelving where very hard to slide in. In fact we are using it for a Trade show and I'm scared to even take it back apart. Will be looking into transporting it assembled.
