I bought this bought this during the labor day sale but didn't get a chance to assemble it until 2 months later. I was very concerned that things might have got damaged during shipment, particularly the shelves but when I opened all the boxes, everything was there and nothing was damaged.
The shelving went together as per the instructions and I now have very functional shelving above my printers.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TimL Great service, glide drawers not so great
First of all, the service we received from Leslie at the Houston Galleria Container Store was first-rate. She walked us through the components, designed the shelves, trained us on how to install it, and told us how to pick it up at the front of the store. When we got home, the first project we tried was a bedroom closet that we were turning into a home office desk/shelves. I happened to hit two studs when I mounted the rail, and the rail was very sturdy. When we installed the vertical pieces, it was a little shaky, and when you tried to type on a laptop on the desk, the whole thing shook. You really have to get the optional clips that stabilize the vertical pieces. This made a huge difference. Next, we tried an entertainment center upstairs. This was a mess. I hit no studs when I installed the rail, and the rail would not stay in place. I had to drill new holes through the rail where the studs were. It just would not work with only wall anchors. Then when we installed the glide shelves, they would not stay locked to the shelf supports. Again, you absolutely must use the clips that stabilize the vertical pieces, or the glide shelves will not be stable. Both projects look great and are very functional, but you really need to hit a stud or two when mounting the rail and you must use the stabilizing clips, or this product will not be stable.

We invested in the Elfa System for our home office. We did shelves on two walls giving both my husband and I both work spaces. I also use the container store plastic grid baskets for my frequently used files storage. Works great, I get paper put away insted of piled up. My office is now a place a love the hang out in because I can find things, I don't have piles of papers stacked and I love the modern look. We still have somethings like a new chair and more baskets that we are going to add from The Container Store.

We have white elfa shelves in multiple rooms of our home. We love the shelves ... they are strong, attractive, versitile, easy to install, easy to clean, long lasting, and worth every penny we spent (which was not much). Due to our success with the white shelves, we have now added other types of elfa shelves and systems: closets, desks, drawers. We have at least one more room on our list in which we'll add new elfa shelves. Thank You!
