Dear Jared: It must be the color that they have discontinued; I'm looking at the IKEA website right now and the Markor bookshelves are there, in dark brown.
It's still more than I want to pay. Poot.
While we're in the same subject line: good Lady Celia, I will take your counsel and check the office stores. If the "house brand" shelving is well-made, I will get a great bargain. I like to think that my visitors will spend more time looking at the books themselves than the shelves, yesno?
