This shelving unit is really cool. The shelves all come out and can be moved around. The bottom shelves all go in at a slant and the top of the unit and the first slot are flat (not angled). I am thinking it was designed to hold magazines or books. The most interesting part of this piece is that it has little adjustable glass shelves on the back. It is a very good looking piece. There are a few small “cracks” in a couple of shelves. They don’t go all the way through at all and they are in the back so they don’t really show. Not really an issue with the way these shelves look.
