Espresso Profile Shelves
It really is espresso
An earlier reviewer said that this shelf is more of a dark cherry wood tone than espresso. I have several of these espresso profile shelves, purchased more than a year ago, and they are, in fact, a dark cherry wood tone, which is what I wanted and expected in this shelf. Alas, the shelf I just purchased is the espresso/black that the earlier reviewer was looking for, not the cherry wood tone that would match my existing shelves. Can't please everyone, I guess. That said, these shelves are great. Easy to install and hold up well. But I will probably return this one because it doesn't match the others.

Looks nothing like online picture
Even the employee helping me with my store pick-up agreed (and had heard before) that these espresso shelves were not really espresso. They look more like cherry wood.
Do not buy if truly looking for espresso finish.

Nice Product, But Arrived Damaged
I ordered two of these shelves and both were slightly damaged. Each shelf had areas at one end that looked like they were dropped on their corners. However, they were very well packaged and the packaging was not damaged at all. It appears to me that the manufacturer packaged and shipped the damaged shelves to The Container Store. If that's the case, it's not the responsibility of The Container Store, who shipped the items efficiently and timely. I kept the items anyway because I didn't want to go through the trouble of having them replaced and I'm otherwise happy with them.

This shelf was so easy to install and it looks beautiful! Just make sure you use the template and a drill - once you've followed the set-up instructions, all it takes is screwing in the posts and sliding the shelf on. Very sturdy and great to look at!

This shelf is great. Not only does it look good, but it is sturdy. The installation process challenged me just a bit but I got it done and that shelf isn't moving. It is really a lovely addition to my room.

Sturdy for low profile!
These shelves give you the 'platform' space needed to display with a very low profile - I have used several of these for CD storage and vase display!

Great Wall Shelf
The shelf was very nice and sleek in its design. It was very easy to install, with easy-to-understand instructions and a mounting template. We've had it up for a week now and it looks great.

Easy to mount, sleek and good-looking
I found this product sturdy, high quality, easy to mount and very versatile in style. It can go with a more modern, minimalist look, as well as a more traditional or even country style.

Fantastic, Super-Easy to Hang
I purchased three three-foot shelves to run along the top of a wide closet. They hold my book collection beautifully - very sturdy design and solid materials. They come with cardboard strips that match the size of the shelves, with markers for where the holes need to go - so I just used push-pins and a level to get the cardboard straight, drill my holes, and voila! Easy cheesy.
They look amazing. Very pleased.

Sleek, Stylish & Sturdy
I looked all over for a shelf to hold up a large picture in my bedroom and this is by far the most secure good looking shelf.
The shelf is simple yet sleek and stylish. I was most impressed how the unit mounts to the wall.
I highly recommend this shelf.

Better Than Expected
I travel a lot and pick up many different art pieces. I have trouble displaying them because I like to scatter them around. Bookshelves are nice, but look cluttered after a while. The Profile shelves are the perfect solution of minimal wall space. They are rich in color and have clean lines. My displays can get grouped on walls and the beautiful design never looks cluttered. They are durable and easy to install. I have traveled with them many places and they have weathered all the moves. Excellent value and I plan to purchase more.
