Overview

Product Information

We've joined the old-world charm of wrought iron with contemporary functionality to create our Iron Folding Bookshelf. Designed to our specifications for economical, attractive storage of books, magazines, tchotchkes, plants, canisters and cookbooks, or toiletries and cosmetics, our Bookshelf is an unbeatable value. Made of cast iron with an attractive, neutral pewter finish, each Bookshelf is pre-assembled - no tools are required. Easy to transport and store, it folds flat when not in use. Fold one out to create a wealth of storage space in the den, library, dorm room, kitchen, bath, or bedroom. For outdoor use, apply a coating of a protective sealer like Rustoleum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Going Strong Since 2002 I purchased this 4-Shelf Iron Folding Bookcase in 2002 to store my recipe books in the kitchen. The top shelf held lots of piano and violin music laid flat. It looked great in 2002, and was very functional. It still looks new ...14 years later and two moves. It is now in my bedroom and looks just as "at home" here than it did in my kitchen. A piece of cake to fold up and transport. I will recommend these shelving units to my daughter who will be moving out on her own in the next year. July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for small bathroom or any small room! Bought this for my college son, whose apartment bathroom is tiny. Size is absolutely perfect. He uses it to store towels, extra toilet paper, toiletries, etc. It unfolds (& re-folds) in less than one minute, but is very very sturdy. Very compact when folded for taking to & from college. Because of its open design, it's not too heavy for something this sturdy. I've had a 4-shelf iron "corner shelf" in my bathroom for 10+years, & it still looks new. Same brand as this, purchased at Container Store. I wish Container Store hadn't discontinued the corner shelf because I now want one for my powder room. Considering 4-shelf folding iron for my daughter who will soon be freshman at out-of-state college. Highly recommend any of Container Store's folding metal shelves! One of my absolute favorite Container Store products! July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Option I have purchased 2 of the 4-Shelf and one of the 6-Shelf Iron Folding Bookcases. The 6-Shelf was my first purchase years ago. It has stood the test of time! I purchased the 4-Shelf versions more recently for special collections (genealogy materials, photo storage, etc.). The fact that they are folding bookcases makes set up fast and a breeze. They hold heavy loads of books, binders, and other items. The easy to screw on feet allow protection of floor surfaces and leveling. The appearance is modern and rustic at the same time. July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I splurged on this bookshelf as a "treat yourself" gift and have no regrets. It's been one year and it's functionality and convenience for transporting is amazing. Moving with this bookshelf is very low maintenance because it is foldable. Thank you container store! September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Shelving I have purchased 4 of the tall collapsable shelves 2 for my daughter and two for me. I have purchased 3 of the 4 shelf shelves; 1 for my daughter and the last one just yesterday for me! They fit any style, are very sturdy, and expanded my shelving space for my extensive book collection. If there were a 3 shelf version I would likely buy it as well! August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy easy for small spaces Purchased two for much needed organization in a small kitchen. Sturdy, functional, extremely useful. July 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase I really like this bookcase. The best part for me, is that there was no assembly. I simply unfolded it! It is a solid bookcase and it stands very level, too. I am very happy with this purchase! July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shelf Bought this for an apartment and it works great. Recently moved into a new place and this was one of the easiest items to move and set up. Very sturdy and yet easy to fold and carry. May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Make a house a home! I own 2 of the 4 shelf units, two of the 6 shelf, and the TV stand which I have my convection oven and microwave sitting on top. One 4 shelf I put on top of my glass table to make a hutch. The others I have my kitchen small appliances. These great looking units make my 300 sq.ft. abode a home. May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versitile Quick Sturdy Had to get back of deep closet organized quickly, yet make things easy to access. This did the trick in a flash. Unfolds & ready to go. Was able to do the entire chore in less than one hour. Nice piece that would look great in open room. Would be nice if this wider style was made in a deeper shelf as well, say 18". May 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by almost but not quite After reading reviews here, and especially after seeing photos of situations similar to mine, I ordered 4 units for an office, a bit of a risk but I hadn't found viable alternatives. I needed help carrying them up stairs, but was able to arrange them alone. A few of the leveling feet were difficult to adjust but I got 3 units lined up wrt each other in an hour or so. Not simple in a wobbly old house; I eventually conceded defeat on the purity of level and plumb for all horizontal and vertical lines simultaneously, and eyeballed it. Aesthetically, the overall effect is quite nice. BUT. One of the legs is slightly bent, not glaring but an irritation and immediately raising questions about quality. One of the shelves has bars (the two that run back to front) at different intervals than the other shelves. Well, in an old house nothing else is perfect either. Here⿿s my major concern though: When the Q&A claims that each shelf holds 60 lbs, I expect this to mean 60 lbs without sagging. But with books on the shelves, mostly unexceptional paperbacks, there is a noticeable sag (about 1/8⿝ at the center below a string stretched straight across). I can live with it for now, but I wonder whether it will increase over time, and it makes me extremely hesitant to order more. In essence, I⿿d prefer a higher quality version of the same thing. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Study and sleek My dresser was messy and crowded so I decided to find a shelf to slip into a corner of my bedroom. This shelf is sturdy, well-constructed and looks good too. There is NO assembly required...the best part! Plus, there are feet that screw into the bottom. My floor is not quite even so I can adjust the feet so there shelf does not wobble AT ALL. Worth the money and can be used anywhere should I decide to repurpose in the future. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal shelving I had the iron-shelf tower. This new 6-shelf folding bookcase works wonderfully for more than books. It is remarkably sturdy; there is no assembly; and you know the shelf is dependable. Ideal! February 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in Tight Spaces Strong, sturdy, instant assembly shelving unit works great in tight spaces February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile shelf I love this little shelf. I have one in a very small bathroom for towels and a basket of toiletries. I have another in my dining room with a small lamp and books and other items. I just brought it home and stood it right up. It is sturdy. February 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Bookcase Very versatile, good looking bookcase. Holds a variety of things and part of a nice collection. Just have to be careful you put primarily things with solid, somewhat wide bases on it so they/their legs don't fall between the railings which form the shelves. January 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by For Great Display Shelving, You Can't Do Better I now have FOUR of these wonderful shelving units; use 'em for displaying my collectibles. Simply put, these units ENHANCE whatever goes on them...and, in my experience, that is rare! Putting them up is so easy - no tools, screws, nails, magnets - and you can easily add solid flat bases (I use heavy white plastic) to cover the rectangular "vents" on any shelf, which serves multiple purposes for my needs, and beautifies further an already stunning shelving unit. Would get more if my display room were larger!!! Buy one, or more...you will love them!!! November 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong. Sturdy. Good value. We purchased three of these shelves after seeing them in a brick and mortar Container Store in northern California. They are all great: Simple yet attractive, sturdy (even the six-shelf ones) and a great value. I like the clean design: The natural wrought iron color and the straight lines. They also hold a ton, but also look great with empty spaces. I wish a Container Store would open in Michigan. November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Addition I have a small apartment and this is the perfect addition! I can store binders, files, and make a nice work station that will stay organized. Big enough for 3 ring binders, printer, and all of my office supplies! (trust me that is saying something) Love it and the entire Iron Folding line! September 21, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Quality not what it used to be Until this week, I would have given this folding bookcase 5 stars. I drove to Atlanta to purchase my third one, but upon removing it from the cardboard carton at home, I realized how much this item has been changed. A very rough finish now and in a darker color. Sloppy welds and seams with sharp edges. I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I am. I love the style, which looks great in many settings. But the current quality is very mediocre. I guess I could return it, but that would require another special trip to Atlanta -- the closest Container Store. September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bathroom Tight Space Storage Solution I measured this spot exponential 99. Ran into NYC 6th Ave store. Representative measured, held and I ran home and measured again. Barter for a pickup since it could not fit into my car. My friend could not believe the exactness and perfect fit. BTW, he's a Math Teacher. Ran around the house. Used ice buckets to hold towels, trays to hold essentials, and boxes to corral small items. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best design/strength for the money Looked at shelving for a LOOOONG time for a mid-century house. Wanted to splurge on the Dieter Rams Vitsoe shelving system but at $6k plus, forget about it. Not only are these shelves beautifully made, but strong enough for massive design/art/photography and smaller literature libraries. They may bow a tiny, tiny bit with huge books jammed on them but what do you want for the price? The design is also a huge factor. Simple, modern, and sophisticated. Easy to move as well. The books are the focus, not the frame of the shelves. Securing them to a wall is a great idea for stability depending on the weight of books. But they aren't that wobbly, contrary to the nay-sayers. I do wish they made a taller version. But for a portable, good-looking bookshelf this is it hands-down. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Solution This iron folding bookcase was the perfect solution for me. I bought it to hold cleaning supplies in my hall closet. Setting it up took less than 5 minutes. It is durable and sturdy and attractive. This was a quick, easy, and affordable solution to a space challenge. July 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice item I purchased this item to be a storage container in our Master Bathroom for things like towels and wash cloths, etc. It is not as tall as I thought it would be (should have paid closer attention to the measurements). It is, however, a nice size and fits nicely into a corner in the bathroom. It holds several towels and wash cloths and several other items that I wanted to put into a similar container. So, I'm happy enough with this purchase and will keep it for the purpose it was intended. July 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully strong and understated This is my fourth iron folding shelf, each in a different size, and I'll keep buying more whenever I find another practical use! The surface is a beautiful matte gray, a little rough to the touch but unlikely to snag. The profile is very straight and uniform, so it tucks into snug spaces easily. And the self-leveling feet are a great solution for anyone suffering from Old House Syndrome. I also love the railing a few inches up on each shelf, which keeps items from falling off and disappearing. Assembly couldn't be easier (tip: fold the top shelf down first). These pair really well with the water hyacinth bins. The medium is the perfect depth, and two smalls fit side-by-side on a shelf. The only downside of this size bookcase is the weight. The iron is slim but sturdy and a bit heavy. Out of the box, it's folded flat and has rails to grab, making it easier to handle, but it was still awkward carrying this up stairs and around tight corners. Once in place, it's still easy to move. Note to Container Store: I really miss the discontinued iron folding media cases! The narrower depth was very practical in some situations and isn't just for CDs and DVDs. June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple, elegant, perfect The bookcase is a gem of low tech functionality in my office. Extends desk space. Using it for everything from printer space, to storing office supplies, manuals. Has reduced my sense of clutter. And I know I can rearrange things on it easily or even store it for later use somewhere else at a later date. LOVE IT. June 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple, strong, good-looking shelving This is my third shelf. I chose open stock so I could add shelves as I could afford them. It looked like the color had been changed but when it arrived it was the same as before. They come fully assembled, folded flat, so you can just open the box, cut the bubble wrap off, stand them up and load them with books. No brainer. Strong enough to hold heaviest books -- iron after all. Well designed to get the job done. When I need more shelves I'll be back, and not just because they match. March 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it Was looking for a bookshelf for family member, found this and am pleased how easy it was to assemble and how it looks. Have someone else wanting one. So will be back :-) March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Attractive Yet Unobtrusive We don't like bulky wood dressers. Instead we use three of these wrought iron folding bookcases for our clothing. The shelves look very nice lined up and spaced about two feet apart, along one (bedroom) wall. Our clothing is neatly folded and fits perfectly on the shelves. Looks good and it's easy to immediately find each article of clothing. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love your store!! This shelf is a must-have for just about everyone. It is attractive, fits in any little corner or cubby where you could use a little extra storage. The setup takes no time at all - just take it out of box, fold down the shelves and there you have it!. I wish I had more time to spend in your store. You have so many neat things! March 11, 2015
