When I first saw these drawers in the store I was impressed with how sturdy they were and with the vibrant color choices. I was disapointed, however, with how difficult it was to pull the drawer out. Since it's cardboard the entire unit is very light. And because it's a basic drawer (no ball bearings or rails) when I would pull on one drawer the entire unit would come with it. The drawer was so snuggly fitted inside the unit that even with weight in the drawer I couldn't see it sliding out easily. So, every time my friends and I went to the Pasadena store we would marvel at how beautiful the drawers were and lament that we couldn't buy them because they weren't practical.
One of my friends decided to buy one anyway and stick Velcro tabs on the corners underneath the unit to afix it to her desk top only to find out once she got it home that it already came with little rubber tabs to stick to the bottom of the unit! Why, oh why didn't they display that in the store?! Or point it out as one of the features online? I would see people in the store walk up to them, pull out a drawer and notice that it was to difficult (like my friends and I had) and walk away. If only they knew that it came with little rubber tabs they'd probably buy it!
The end result, however, has been that we all have the drawers now, of varying colors, and we love them. The rubber tabs are surprisingly strong and hold the entire unti securely on my desk top. I highly recommend them! :)

functional and good-looking
After purchasing a new computer with dual monitors for my home office, I knew I needed a little something to put the monitors on so they would be at eye level. I've had one of these for about 4-5 years and it's held up really well (moved with me to a few offices and apartments), so when I saw these go on sale I jumped and bought three in navy, to complement my dark cherry desk. So pretty! Some of the top drawers are hard to pull out since the monitors are on top, but I'll be going to get some plexi glass to put on top so the monitors sit straight and it hopefully allieviates the problem of pulling out the top drawer.

I recently purchased the white stockholm paper drawers. The white is not great for a number of reasons, mainly being that the white covering is so thin you can see the cardboard underneath the covering. Also, the stockholm products have a linen like finish which I can see getting dirty really easily. May not be a problem if you order a color but is a huge problem when you order white. Just be aware that the boxes do not have a glossy finish.
In addition, the drawers on these do not open well. They are really cheaply made.
