Absolutely Best Purchase
Bought this & additional Skandia components to create a wall unit with desk, table, and abundant storage for my daughter when in high school. She has used this constantly for 15 years, through college and many apartment moves. It still looks just as it did when we bought it & has continued to be her favorite piece of furniture. Sure there are some dings, but nothing at all compared to other furniture! It doesn't stain, is easily wiped with a damp towel when spills happen. Honestly, I wish I had known, I would have bought it when she was in middle school! As it is she will probably have this for a very long time-it's so adaptable for any location of the house-not just a desk with shelves.

I bought Skandia shelves about 15 years ago. I have moved 5 times since then and these shelves have been versatile enough to fit into any apartment or home in which I've lived. At times they have been used for an entertainment center and others as office furniture. They are fantastic!

I got my first tower/desk 15 years ago when I moved into the dorm at school. When I got my apartment after school I added a few more pieces and turned it into an entertainment center. Now I have just ordered a few more pieces to convert it into shelving for my 2 daughters in their playroom! Such a great buy! It can be configured for any use/space. I love it and am sure I will have it for years to come.

Skandia in Students Dorm Room
These shelves can be put together and taken apart easily making them perfect for college dorm living. They are sturdy, but not bulky. Students need easy access to books, snack food and laundry soap and everything in between. These shelves are great for students and for the parents who get to help with the moving part!

Durable, Beautiful Shelves
I bought my Skandia shelves over five years ago. I have used them in different capacities--as an entertainment center, an office desk and as bookshelves. They can be arranged however they are needed, look beautiful and have held up wonderfully. I will keep them many more years.
