Cheap and tacky. Only kept it because I couldn't be bothered to send it back.
I disagree with other reviewers. If I had seen before buying, I wouldn't have bought.
Cheap plastic that chips slightly at joins, leaving a slightly different colour there. Joins do not meet completely, leaving unsightly gaps, and different sized gaps between each piece, so you cannot even think it's meant to be like that. Looks awful, feel ashamed to have it in public.
And the overall height, which I calculated to be able to put on a shelf and put folders in does not take into account the 1 inch high base, so my folders do not fit inside it. This is my fault - I should have looked more carefully at the picture - which shows, incidentally, a perfectly smooth base, not one with gaps between each piece. Yes, the pieces are clipped together. No, it's not because it isn't assembled properly. Photo shows what i mean about different colour where chipped and the ugly gap. Ugly overall appearance in fact.
Not that there were any instructions at all for assembling . . .
I would NOT buy again, in fact as soon as I have ordered something different, this is going into the recycling bin. I cannot bear the embarrassment of having something so ugly on display.
And I paid HOW much for this?
